Misogynoir is a term mostly used by Black feminists to reference the particular anti-Blackness that exists where race and gender intersect for Black women. Misogynoir is not limited to Black men as perpetrators solely, but the term gives a basis for specifically contextualizing the discrimination and mistreatment Black women face in this country. That anti-Blackness is a part of the fabric of United States culture is a given for the historical and present context of race as a social construct, in the country. And specifically, anti-Blackness womanhood is an often overlooked concept that is always and already present, culturally. The English language as we know it makes it difficult to talk about two constructs at once, I think.

Interracial dating has been one of the biggest conversations within the black community. Black men have made it no secret their liking to white women.

I recently did a survey on a group of black women regarding their reasons for not dating men who are not of color.
Yet, do most women actually hate men or are you simply focussing on a small minority of women who have a problem with certain types of men for their own reasons? Likewise, do most men hate women or is there simply a minority of confused men who feel angry at women for things that could easily be cleared up if they simply understood where women are coming from when they reject or dump men? She may have experienced that several times in a row and then come to the conclusion that all men must be like that. You are most-likely a good guy who has good intentions with women, wants to treat them well and you simply want women to appreciate you because of that. She will assume that you are being nice to her now, but you will probably end up being an asshole later on just like other guys have been towards her.
