Black people AREN'T monolithic in scope socioeconomically,socioculturally, psychologically, nor philosophically. Black people are different. Some have all the advantages and then some; others are in-between while there are those who are in abject circumstances.

BTW, I am Black; I have seen many Hispanics/Latinos experience FAR MORE discrimination & racism especially in terms of employment, being treated as slave laborers.
Perhaps its past time to suggest trading places with one colored person and include all people .......how about the following :

Is a white woman refusing to date blacks the same as a black woman refusing to date whites?It seems there is 'back privilege' in the dating scene and racism against whites. As a non-white, non-American person observing this, it seems really strange that this racism is so widely accepted.
