I hear you say, Before you get on your high horse, just allow me to say I have spoken to plenty of my buddies about this, Black and White and all of them agreed with what I had to say. . Cool! .
Yes, being a young black man and living in britain or in my case London daily it can be as indicated a roller coaster ride.
Firstly I have to say, the something that gets me is that the staring, it is the obvious low!
White girls, white men, Chinese people etc, they stare, it is funny but Indian women and men do not stare as much, maybe they feel secure or are just use to the exact same treatment! Who knows? I mean I could walk on any street, day and night and its always the same, take only another day, it was 5pm on a Thursday, it was a lovely day, there I was walking up a very notable road near Holland park, near where I really live, I walk on the right hand side of any street or road, I do not know why its just my way! So as I was walking, playing songs from my ipod and taking in the sights of this beautiful beautiful Houses on this street. Ahead of me I could see a very attractive lady and yes she was white, as I got closer to this lady I noticed she had been looking straight at me, I thought to myself great she is stunning and she is looking at me, cool! . .Hmm! I thought to myself, not great! Now again, do not fly of the deal but to me it seemed like she had been scared of me or found me threatening. Which is understandable in this day an age with how society is but what got me was that this street was fairly long and if she wished to cross over why did not she do it much sooner? However, it got worse for me that specific day because within a minute or 2. . .it occur again and this time the woman was much older. I was beginning to think I must seem like a ideal villain in spite of the fact that I had been dress quite decent plus I had been carrying my guitar (instance ) in my shoulders.
This might be just the area of Holland Park I hear you say but I will tell you that this occurs every other day to me and to many Black Men around the united kingdom. We won’t speak about law enforcement and the stop and search variable but I will say that, that is only gone completely over the top, too much stories to tell so I will stop there because that is just the one of those lows, now allow me to give you a top, I believe you deserve to hear the advantages in addition to the downsides but after hearing it, do you say it was a positive thing or a negative thing?
Well! . .one of the greatest things about being a Black Man is the way Women perceive us, Black men attract women in another manner than the normal man, or should I say a white guy. White guys will always get girls because it is their world and that is fine by me but being Black we’ve got something that they will never have and know. We’ve got the difference! Women who like this gap may inform you, they enjoy it because they simply prefer black guys, I think that there is a deeper meaning to the madness. I believe it comes down to one thing and that’s fear. I can practically hear you say, what the hell is this guy talking about? Well take it from me; we understand that if we need something and we know we can not have it, we are inclined to go out of our way to get it and that is how all of this began, it’s only progressed quietly within different generations, cultures and life generally.
I’ve travelled around the world and every time I leave the UK I’m always racially abused in some way, from airport security around the world to European towns in which there are zero Black guys and so after you get of the plane you become like a alien and everyone stares at you and sees the gap I have been talking about. But going back to the girls for a second or two, they do often see something else than their male counterparts. Most times it’s great for me, sometimes it’s not but being a man you can not always get the girl! Various women from all over the world prefer a certain kind of person, be it about their spiritual beliefs, or sexually traits or their fear of the distinction, What I’ve observed and have made a note of is that Asian girls i.e. Chinese or Indian will not be seen dead using a Black guy, Eastern girls are a bit different, the new generation of young girls do find Black men more attractive but that is based on the nationality of the Black male. American girls are certainly mixing it in the moment a great deal more than ever but that is down to the way Black men are portrayed in the united states. English Girls are showing signs but for me in cosmopolitan London. Irish and Scottish White women won’t go down that street. The welsh women are far more receptive to the idea but generally there is still segregation amongst the mixing of Black Men and White Women across the world, again for me it is very much understandable.
In my case I get lots of attention from White women in fact a great deal more than I’d get from Black ladies, so what does that tell you! If you do not believe me just check out any dating website, that is where all of the evidence is. Just look at what the girls want and you’ll see. . .90percent of those women want white men and only 10% do not care what the guy looks like. Again that’s just how the world is, taste is quite important to most people.
So the ride persists. . This is a touchy subject that haunts me to the heart of my spirit but what people really don’t know is that being Black we see things really easy, we do not go around thinking we’re better than anybody that’s the first thingwe do not see racism throughout our eyes when we look at a different culture, we do not wonder why you’re that color and why we are this color but with how we’ve been duped by the planet with easy things like Great is shown by the color White and Bad is revealed as Black, its easy things like this continues beliefs in white culture which color Black ought to be feared.
Also the absence of White people around the World, not knowing where they come from and their own history, Being a Black Man or Black Woman we obviously wish to understand our roots and we pursue this everyday and the majority of the new generation of Blacks around the world know much more about where they come from, more than a White Person. The History of Black people is seldom told so we’re left to our own devices to get the questions and answers so that we are the proud race and people which we are now. Bear in mind that this is only my view point of this situation about being a Black. Yours may be different but that’s what makes us the people we are.
