But we all know no one is saying that about black women. That said, here's the irony/monkey wrench in this: I have found based on quite a bit of experience/exposure in my travels that some of the tallest, wealthiest, most "handsome" or "beautiful" (by society's standards) whites from Switzerland, Germany and other European countries actual seem to prefer black, East Indian, and Native American (Latinas) women, not just for dating but for marriage.
And, despite what some minority men may claim, they typically have to work harder to get a white woman – heck the majority of white women aren’t even interested in non-white men – and they have to work harder to keep them, because they know most white women have more options.

" The explanation was usually something like "opposites attract, that's all." Black men who pursue white women often say the same thing.
I am a 32 year old Korean American man who was adopted from South Korea when I was nine months old.
My dad is of mixed European ancestry and self-identifies as White, and my mom is half Puerto Rican and half Italian and identifies as multi-racial (however, she acknowledges that she can oftentimes pass for White and as such does benefit from White privilege).
First, I appreciate everyone being honest here, for the most part.
I respect that, no matter how painful -- even offensive -- it may be.
