It gets annoying as fuck, because I see a lot of black girls that I think are hot and I want to talk to them but I know they won't like me and will take me as a joke simplu because I am white. But, black guys don't have that problem with white girls.

This problem honestly dates back hundreds of years ago, but basically it's because the media/world has tried to make white women seem the most desirable. The lighter your skin is (especially if you are a woman) = the prettier you are in this society. While for men it was the darker your skin was = the hotter and more "exotic" you were. (Ex. The "tall, dark, and handsome" phrase) This put black women in a very awkward position because most black women aren't light or at least not to the standard they have to be in order to be considered attractive. The same with white men, unless they went out and tanned they weren't dark. (Though their color was more accepted in the workplace than the bedroom) I think the whole reason black girls don't go for white guys is because black girls think all white guys want to get with is white girls while all white guys think black girls want to get with is black guys.
You'd honestly be surprised, if you approach the girl she might be flattered and genuinely be interested in you! Try it out.1

People mostly prefer people of their own race. All this stuff about interracial dating on the web is mostly motivated by curiosity, nothing more. And actually, black guys do have issues getting white girls. They're all over gag whining about racism in dating because white girls won't give them a chance. Whites and blacks mostly date among their own ethnicities even to this day.2
