Black man white woman dating movies
What I wasn't prepared for is how many real moments I would see for a show that is arguably an unrealistic reality show about people getting engaged after less than two months of "dating." The first moment that brought me back to reality was when the season kicked off with Rachel meeting her first four suitors on After the Final Rose.
Each man gets to make a quick first impression with Rachel, and when it is Dean's turn, he says, "I'm ready to go black and I'm never going to go back." This is hardly the first time this phrase has been said in our culture.
She acted perfectly fine with it, and even referred to it as line.
This awkward sexualization isn't uncommon for black women in the dating world, and neither are the other racist undertones of the season.
At this point, we haven't seen hometown dates this season.
But we have seen Rachel laying down the groundwork for some of the men.
It's racist, and there is a long history of white men sexualizing black women in America, from the days of slavery to now with the way black women are treated as a very specific fetish in pornography.
So when the actual season of The Bachelorette began, Dean almost immediately brought up his comment to Rachel to get a reaction.
Rachel Lindsay's season may look like just any other season to many fans of the show.
But for many black women, these situations have most likely reflected their own dating experiences back to them.
This is important for a black woman to be seen as worthy of men's affection, like so many white women have been portrayed in the previous seasons.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
