I don't believe this really happens (with the exception of a select few) I think it's very easy to expect more from the people of your own race though, since you feel a sort of false sense of familiarity with them.



Wouldn't you expect more from a family member than a stranger? then I guess you'd expect more of people who share commonalities with you than those who don't.

I agree

I think I am going to start praying for my future significant other even though I don't know who is. I am going to start praying that he is spiritual, family oriented, hard working, fun, romantic, understands me, and will love and protect me.

I wrote that a year ago, not sure what I was thinking. It is a good practice though!

To answer your question, men are visual creatures. I think that beauty (and better) is still associated with light or white. I also think that black men feel that light skinned or white women are used to being treated better and therefore treat them better. It could also be the Willie Lynch theory applied to dating and relationships. Some people would say blacks were psychologically programmed to think this way thanks to slavery. Malcolm Gladwell talks about this in his book Outliers. Regardless, light or dark skinned, I agree with Steve Harvey when he advises women to set the expectation up front for how we wanted to be treated and assess every potential mate with our eyes wide open.
