Black dating man old white woman
Only with the advent of black freedom did the issue move beyond neighborhood dramas and into the arena of politics, becoming a much more serious taboo than it had ever been before.Hodes gives vivid examples of the violence that followed the upheaval of war, when black men and white women were targeted by the Ku Klux Klan and unprecedented white rage and terrorism against such liaisons began to erupt.
by Savage Tango I saw an interesting discussion going on in here not too long ago.Well, pretty much every discussion here is interesting but this one particularly so. Cuz see, I’m part of problem they were talking about. actually I probably will be in about 20 years or so.It caught my eye real fast and I wanted to crash it and start in with my .02 about the problem these Ladies were talking about. Heh heh…they were talking about older white guys hitting on much younger Black Women. I sat back and grinned the whole time you were talking about it, too!I was kinda like that dude at the bar sitting there watching you fend off drunk after drunk during Girls Night Out and chuckling to myself as I watched the looks on your face as it happened. I ain’t too proud to say I’ve seen ya go through that!Now whether ya like it or not, both sides do share some of the guilt here. We know there’s sexy older men out there cuz we hear ya talkin about it. Sean Connery immediately comes up when that topic is discussed.Most definitely not equally mind you, but this whole thing is not all about those dirty old white men. And ya keep rolling until you get the result ya want, and you know why? He’s gotta put it out there enough until the finally gets the jackpot he’s been looking for, then cash out and go party. What younger Lady wouldn’t accept if he sat down beside her and whispered, “Hello gorgeoush.
Normally I’m a Ladies First kinda guy, but not this time. Nothing was gonna change one way or another, so who cared? Cuz men are expected to make that move, face and accept rejection and then do it all over again. And the men who quit trying, or never even began trying in the first place and get bitter, angry and pout in silence about it. You and I should sit down and ship shome martinish shometime.”(OK that was a really bad Scottish accent but you get the picture….
We’re getting straight to them old white dudes first. Remember your last week in high school your senior year? Ya relax, party up and bide your time until ya cash out and move on. Look at the 2 outcomes here and ask yourself what’s the worst that could happen… ” (when I say “best” I’m talking for the old white man, not you) and we get a little action. I hope.) When faced with this decision, the Male Ego is likely gonna give itself the benefit of the doubt and make the assumption that he falls under the Sexy Older Men category rather than the dirty old man category.
This book is the first to explore the history of a powerful category of illicit sex in America's past: liaisons between Southern white women and black men.
Martha Hodes tells a series of stories about such liaisons in the years before the Civil War, explores the complex ways in which white Southerners tolerated them in the slave South, and shows how and why these responses changed with emancipation.
Hodes provides details of the wedding of a white servant-woman and a slave man in 1681, on antebellum rape accusation that uncovered a relationship between an unmarried white woman and a slave, and a divorce plea from a white farmer based on an adulterous affair between his wife and a neighborhood slave.
Drawing on sources that include courtroom testimony, legislative petitions, pardon pleas, and congressional testimony, she presents the voices of the authorities, eyewitnesses, and the transgressors themselves - and these voices seem to say that in the slave South, whites were not overwhelmingly concerned about such liaisons, beyond the racial and legal status of the children that were produced.
