America, after all, is the land of endless possibilities.To get their feet inside the American door, therefore, some believe they needed an agreeable native to help them through this process (without which the American dream may become very difficult to achieve).Therefore, one is unable to make statistically valid deductions as to why Africans, in greater numbers, are attracted to and are marrying white women.To be clear: this essay does not make any scientific statement or conclusion.According to the Pew Research Center’s analysis of recent US Census’s demographic data, one-in-seven new marriages in the US are interracial or interethnic.This number is stunning especially considering the fact that until forty-four years ago, interracial liaisons were unlawful in 16 or so states.And the fifth reason is this: for some Africans, the mind altering sex is a standalone reason to want the white woman. White women, the argument goes, makes a man think of things he shouldn’t be thinking about; thoughts he shouldn’t be having, and fantasies he shouldn’t be floating in.
Also, there is the belief that white women are easily manipulated. And finally, it is believed that black women mostly wait for men to walk up to them, to propose -- while white women have no such hang-ups.
The third factor revolves around the issue of compatibility and companionship.
The room-mate phenomenon where you test-drive a relationship is not very common in Africa. In a society where trial-and-error relationships are not very common, couples may be subjected to a life of anguish should things go awry.
Americans are wont to say “Been there…done that.” Africans are wont to say it, too -- especially when it comes to African women.
Their argument goes like this: “for years and years I dealt with Africans women; well, now that I am in America, why should I deal with them again?
