Yet many of the USA's black women have to contend with the puzzling stereotype that they are all angry, unattractive man-haters - to the point that the news media actually run stories about why unmarried black women are unmarried.Please note that just like this trope's white/Asian counterpart, not every black/white romance falls under this trope.If the lovers just happen to be interracial and nobody makes a big deal out of it, then it is simply a mundane relationship.

Just like European men and (south-)east Asian women can't get enough of each other, and Gentile guys and Jewish chicks go gaga over one another (or Jewish guys and Gentile chicks), so do black men and white women. Though it's no big deal in most of the world, there are still some parts - e.g.

South Africa, the USA - where black-white ethnic relations are troubled and this trope actually comes into play.

In Real Life, black man/white woman couples are pretty common and there are a variety of views on what this kind of relationship should or does entail.

White man/black woman pairs don't get as much attention (positive or negative) perhaps because they are less common, at least in America, though the gap appears to be narrowing.

The Trope Namer comes from , until Spike Lee made a film deconstructing the term. The gender inverted version of this trope is Black Gal on White Guy Drama.

Also, any discussion of this trope is likely to bring up Black Is Bigger in Bed. A young Black woman from Australia has gone viral for blasting a potential Tinder date for asking her to bleach her skin.South Africa and The USA have had a serious Double Standard when it comes to this gender divide, as a direct consequence of Apartheid and the USA's Jim Crow laws (and slavery before that): many white men had black slave-mistresses, and this practice was generally accepted or at least tolerated.The reverse-gendered version, of a free woman loving a male slave, could result in death for the (African) slave and the public shaming (and possible death) of the free woman.When slavery gave way to Jim Crow and Apartheid, this bias remained - the chief difference being that before Apartheid, a white-woman-black-man couple would be lynched by the authorities whereas during apartheid they would instead be lynched by family/friends/neighbors whom the authorities couldn't be bothered to prosecute for murder.Nobody lynches anyone anymore for interracial sexual relationships, obviously.
