Black Love vs. White Love: Who Knew?
By GoingLikeSixty on January 17, 2011
I'm not a Black couple.
As a matter of fact, I'm not even half of a Black couple.
Is Ebony even relevant anymore?
There’s a difference between White Love and Black Love. Who knew?
Amy DuBois Barnett, Editor-in-chief of Ebony, explains her “aha” moment. She was with her family at Thanksgiving and her mother-in-law said:
Well, Black Love is a special love. Because all we have endured as a people, it’s hard to us to feel good enough about ourselves to feel. But when we do love, we love hard.
ADBB decided that Ebony was going to take on Black Love and explain to those of use who didn’t know there was a difference how…
So much of what Black folks have gone through has damaged our self-esteem and our ability to see a positive future.
Ebony commissioned a study that was designed to be representative of African-Americans. Wait. I thought this was about Blacks.
Suitable partner requirements that black women desire in their man (according to the study):
- 78% – Good Income
- 46% – Causasian
- 42% – Drinks Alcohol
Here are some other qualities black women ranked in double digits:
- 40% – Hispanic
- 30% – Asian
- 17% – Uses Pot
- 15% – Different Religion
Coke users ranked a measly 4% on the desirablity scale.
Black Love is different that White Love. Ebony said so.
