Are racist feelings the hindrance in such situations? Are there other reasons? Is it arrogance if a person feels that it is because of racism?

I'm a black woman who doesn't necessarily not want to date white guys, but I'm very skeptical of dating white guys more specifically white American guys. I realize that apart of it is me being overly cautious. To sum it up, American culture tends to give white men mistaken superiority complexes. This has been reflected in so many ways for example how so many of them make "race jokes" that are just plain insensitive and rude. I also think that some white guys may view black girls as an experiment like they just want to try us out but they don't take us seriously. I know that minorities can be racist towards blacks too, but I just feel like minorities are more likely to relate to me and I'm less likely to have to worry about them slipping up and using the and word or saying something inappropriate. I also get very irritated at how many white people act like racism is some imaginary thing just because they personally haven't dealt with the issues some minorities have. However, I think some white guys are very attractive. It's not that I'm unattracted to them or think they're inferior. I just try to be as open, honest, and real about how many of them are to avoid a certain type of situation.1
