Look Beyond the Surface

I shamefully admit that I watch a lot of tv.  I should read more, but tv shows are entertaining to me. Reality tv has been sweeping the nation for the past 10 years.  TV producers caught on to the idea of “reality” tv and it has become a world wide epidemic.  I put reality in quotes because the producers of these shows edit the show to how they want people to appear.  A contestant on a show can be a real sweetie and the producers will edit that person to make them appear to be a villain.  Thus, we are not getting the reality of the show since the producers edit the show to how they want the characters and situations to appear to the viewers.  With that said, I watched the season premier of “Ochocinco:  The Ultimate Catch.”  This show is pure trash.  It was a waste of my time.  Most of those girls look like men, will do the most whorish things to get noticed, have low self-esteem, and are only there to marry for money.  Now, we all know that this show is fake and Chad will not be marrying any of these women.  One thing I immediately noticed is that Chad did not pick a lot of black girls for the final 17.  He picked a lot of white girls and Latino girls.

I like men of all races.  I like black men, white men, Hispanics, Asians, Indians, Africans, Italians, Mexicans, Native Americans - you name it.  I like men of all colors.  I have a huge problem when black men PREFER women of another race.  I can understand if a black man likes a black woman and a white woman, but he likes the white woman more because she has some physical features and characteristics that trump those of the black woman.  However, I have a problem with black men who thinks that a whole race of white, Asian, Hispanic, or Mexican women looks better than a black woman.  One whole race, does not look physically better than another race.  I met this black guy a while ago and he actually told me that he thinks woman are attractive in this order:  Mexican, Latino, White, Black, and Filipino.  I was like, "get the hell out of here."  This was before I asked him what characteristics does he want in a woman.  He said 120 lbs, 5'2, and long hair.  I could not believe my ears.  He was serious.  When it comes to women, he is the shallowest person I have ever met.  Very superficial.

So what am I getting at here?  I’m just venting about the stupidity and borderline racism of superficial black men.   The depth of a person is not based on ones appearance.  It’s not based on skin complexions, ethnic backgrounds, small waist sizes, breast size, or length of hair.  It is based on the quality, the personality, and the heart of the individual.  Having an attractive face and/or body is the icing on the cake. The icing adds to the cake, but it’s not what made the cake.  Look beyond the surface.
