In my area its fairly common to see black men with white chicks; doesn't even raise an eyebrow. But, I've seen what I'm going to discuss play many times: Observance: Every time I see a black man with a white woman having dinner, buying things at a quick-stop, etc ... its ALWAYS the white female paying for it. I bring this up because last night my wife and I had dinner at the local Outback restaurant, and a rather younger mixed couple sat at the bar across from us. They were finishing up their meal and I leaned over to my wife and whispered ... "want to make a bet on who pays for the meals?" ... she responded No, but then asked why was that important. Personally, its not, but its an observation I've seen replay itself over and over again. NEVER have I ever seen a black man pull out his wallet and pay when he has a white female with him. She always pays. Same with "opening doors" ... I've never seen a black man open a car door or restaurant door for his white female. My wife have been together over 19 years and I ALWAYS open the doors for her. So, here's the question to this forum ... (real) ladies, as well as black gents ... Why is this?
