Are attractive black women intimidating
As children, many black women are taught to seek black husbands, which naturally makes black women less attracted to white men.
Although the reasons are not rooted in racism, racism does play a small role.
Many white men associate these features with obesity.
For example, when a typical black man sees a “phat ass”, a typical white man sees a fat-ass.
Current research studies on interracial marriage decisions and the current hegemonic race discourse often leads one to believe that racism exists only within the hearts of a few bigots and that race encompasses a greatly diminished role in interracial relationship decisions (Rosenfeld 2005; Yancey and Yancey 1998).
A stereotypical black woman is pushy, overbearing, and overly independent.
This long standing historically constructed “knowledge” of black women has become embedded in the deep frame of many contemporary white men.
A deep frame represents our deep world view and mental infrastructure of our mind (Lakoff 2006), which consists of cognition, knowledge, emotions (Feagin 2009), and discourse used to make sense of our everyday world.
 I critically examined the deep frame of contemporary white men utilizing open-ended, online self-administered questionnaires.
One hundred and thirty-four white males, ranging from the age of 18 to over 50 and representing 38 states, completed this in-depth online questionnaire.
