Jungle Fever?!

I was dropped by Urban Dictionary (www.urbandictionary.com) today. Don't know why!? :) Now Im sitting here wondering - Do I have this "legenadry" Jungle Fever? Am I a so called Negrophile? Mmm, not sure if I like that name at all. And I guess I shouldnt label myself at all, but it's still "interesting thoughts" presented on that site! :D

Jungle fever:
  • A white person dating a person of color.
  • An inter-racial relationship, namely between a white person and a black person.
  • When a non-black person is atracted sexually to black people. Originally it was used for when a white woman dates black men, but now it could refer to a white man who thinks black women are hot and wants to date them. 

Negrophile:
  • A white woman who is only attracted to black men.
  • Some one who likes people of a black origin.

I don't trouble myself with labels. I don't even think there IS a term for women of colour who like/date white men, what's THAT about?

I just date who I like & what I am attracted to.

Anyway, you joined the huge Facebook group "Black Girls & White Guys," so I'm sure you've seen now, if you ARE a "negrophile" you certainly aren't the only one!

I am personally of the opinion that most white guys deep down have a "thing" for black women. Case in point: http://www.slide.com/r/iqqpzRab0T-frPBazUoDcDbQq1BlyOsW?previous_view=TICKER&previous_action=TICKER_ITEM_CLICK&ciid=3386706919828465657

MOST of the Famous White Men in Interracial Relationships (featured in the slide) are with BLACK women.

last anon, i'm not trying to be negative, but i actually think most people prefer their own race, otherwise interracial dating wouldn't be so controversial.

I did say "deep down!"

From my own experience, white guys who have always "done what they were supposed to do" and dated mostly white girls were relieved to date me - I was like a breath of fresh air to them! And secretly, most revealed, they would fantasize about black women.

I believe that white guys in general fantasize about being with a girl who is "exotic" whether that means black, Asian or whatever, because white girls are always being shoved down their throats. Who can blame them?

Really interesting thought you all got here! :) I beleive maybe most people prefer their own "race" when it comes to serious relationsship... but I'm pretty sure there are many out there that are "fantasizing" and are excited about the "exotic". Im not sure if it's this way, just me thinkin! :)

I have always thought of "Jungle Fever" as a slightly offensive term that discredits the genuine feelings that people in IR relationships may feel. There is a Spike Lee Movie that is about 15 years old of the same title, I don't know if you have seen it, but it is interesting. IT just implies that it's some kind of sexual fetish. Labels don't matter, though, it's only about how two people feel about each other and knowing that what they have is real.

I agree with FunkyStar... that "jungle fever" usually has a negative connotation, i.e., the reason that you are interested in the other "race" is because there is something wrong with you; illness is the cause. Like anonymous, I date who I want and don't care about the stupid labels. Kudos to you Black is B...

I can appreciate the interest of a person because they want to not just because they are afraid to go against the grain. Do people stay within their own race because they fear what others will think? I am attracted to whatever kind of guy that is attracted to me. I like to call that chemistry.

I find it hypocritical to feel that you do not care what people think but you are afraid to be seen with certain people. My interest in white guys stems from how I am treated by them. I do not like being taken for granted. I truly think that it says something good about a person who is willing to do what they feel is good for them and not be concerned with what others think.
