1. So black men go for (let's just say) any white woman, while white men get the hot black women...

2. Why must a white man "not be afraid" to date a black woman. What are they? Undiscovered territory? That's insulting to me because no one says Tiger Woods is not afraid to date a bevy of white women; neither are white women/black women "not afraid to date black men/white men

3. Despite my notes above, this was a cute list. My take on it is that if you're black, white, indian, hispanic, etc or a mix of all and more, if you're aligning yourself to one idea of love, don't be surprised when love escapes you because you're searching for it in one specific package.
