But let me ask you something, have you ever sashayed by a man of another race maybe lets say, a white man and he gave you the once over like you were a piece of meat? Does this happen regularly? Well it happens to me all of the time!
I have always dated openly. I didn't have time to wait around for the perfect black man...I dated whomever treated me like a Queen, or whomever I felt a bit of attraction to. But one question I always got was, "Is your hair a weave? I mean is all of that your hair?" Look, I'm a reformed weavaholic, okay? And, what could I say? Nothing, because it was a daggone weave. I was deathly afraid of letting my hair go natural, for fear of not being considered "sexy" anymore, but man oh man. Once I got liberated with my natural hair honey I became the epitome of sexy! Ok, maybe I'm just tooting my own horn a bit but thats how I feel. Obviously its how white men feel too, because I get all kinds of googly eyes, and such!
I don't know how any of you feel about dating outside of your race, and I respect everyone's decision. But let me say this, if you are open to love from different races but think those other races don't like you because you have tightly coiled, or loc'd hair? Well you need to think again. Maybe slow down a bit when walking past...lift up that head and stop staring at the ground while you walk. Remember honey you are a Queen and Queens are proud, they walk with eloquence and pride. You may just be surprised at "who" is checking you out! I know I was.
The men of other races I talked to told me that I was beautiful just like I was, that they loved my hair. That all of me was beautiful, not just some, but all....
I checked out some other blogs, but the excerpt below is by a white man who has a blog entitled, Black is Beautiful, wow. He really has a whole blog dedicated to black women. I had to place his excerpt on here about how he likes a black woman who is still connected to her roots, my guess, a natural black woman. What do you think about that below? I want to hear from you. Have you been checked out by other races? Do you think you are more attractive natural? I want your thoughts please in the comment section.

Roots are "sexy"
I think it's so "sexy" (not sure if thats the best word to describe it, but...) with a woman that keep her african roots and the vibe. I mean, a lot of the black women, here in Sweden, tend to get a too western attitude and vibe. I really like a woman that keeps here tradition, roots and history close to her heart. But that's just my thoughts! :)
