After hearing a disturbing amount of Black men say they wouldn’t go out with Black women, Pace University student Briana Browne decided to explore the topic on camera.
In “I Would Never Date a Black Woman,” Browne’s subjects discuss why it’s insulting, hurtful, and just plain wrong that some Black men refuse to go out with Black women.
Browne, the creator of JustBTV, said she wanted to use the project to give Black women a voice.
“‘I Would Never Date a Black Girl'” was my first controversial video. I heard that statement numerous times and I wanted to give the Black females an opportunity to voice their opinion on it; wanted to get their perspective,” she explained. “In addition, I wanted Black females to see this video and not feel discouraged when they heard that statement and of course to teach Black males a little something,”
While it’s worth noting that the overwhelming majority of Black married men are married to Black women, this anti-Black women sentiment seems to be growing among some younger men.
