Yet, he was very strong even if he didn't have "muscles." He could do one-armed pushups very easily.


His charisma is manifested in his music which is what made him famous.

Cool! I did not know that. I did know that he was a skilled basketball player (in real life, not just in that old Chapelle skit). He was short, but also fast and nimble.

This was debunked ages ago Jamesy. A very small percentage of white women in any European dominated country actually date other races. When you walk the streets in any major city it might appear like a lot of white women are dating non-European men, it's an optical illusion because this small fraction tends to concentrated in urban areas of cities so if you are fixated with these unions then obviously you start to notice them.



Ok that's interesting. There's a stereotype that blonde women always go for black men.

I'm blonde-ish but I don't feel sexually attracted to black men. You seem to hear the most falsest of false information.

Sounds like you need a new stereo.

I kind of already knew that stereotype was a load of bs.

I actually see lots of brunettes with brown eyes who are with black men.

I have dated a black woman before. Some people dislike interracial dating because of their dating preferences. People generally tend to be attracted to people who look like themselves, but there are obvious exceptions to this trend.

I was invited to my middle school graduation dance by a black boy in my class.
My mother said I wasn't allowed to go with him because my grandfather would roll over in his grave.

I can't believe I'm sharing that.
I don't recall my grandfather having those attitudes but my mother did.
I think she used my grandpa as an excuse.

Thank goodness my mother has changed a lot since then.
She's still old fashioned, but she accepts diversity now.

I'm mixed race, so I'm obviously okay with interracial dating :lol:

A lot of people have racist attitudes, particularly people from the boomer generation. It is what a lot of people from that era were brought up with.

Is my mother a boomer? She is 84.

She’s from the “Silent Generation,” I believe. She’s certainly not a Boomer.

Why don't we ask ladies what they think of black men...? :lol:

I don't care if a man is black, white, green, or purple, so long as he's a good person.
I haven't dated a black guy but then again I haven't dated many good people.
