Maybe some mixed race couples just love each other? White men just want black women for the novelty of it and to fulfil sexual fantasies.Similarly, black men like white women because they’re more adventurous in bed, and will do things black women won’t.While they knew of each other, they didn’t become close until Chaka had actually left to go back to Kenya.
White men, on the other hand, are sweet and affectionate lovers.
The stereotypes Kenyans hold about what happens when races mix are never-ending and often contradictory. That’s what these relationships are all about, or that’s what you’d think looking in on Mashada or listening in on conversations.
Dani had actually met his mum when she was on her February holiday (“I could actually hear the tea and the banana bread go down my throat – that’s how nervous I was”), but it was only a short visit and the couple’s intentions weren’t clear then, even to themselves.
When Chaka told his parents she was coming to Kenya to live with him, their first concern was not knowing her, and their second was whether he even really did.
Ask any [guy] with dreadlocks the kind of attention they got from [white] mamaz.
Also, some mamas just LOVE the African/Jamaican accents 1.
But things change when you ask Kenyans as individuals.
Destination put out a survey asking Kenyans about interracial relationships and the results were surprising.
But people know enough to realise it’s not always, or even usually, about sex and money.
However, as things get more generalised, stereotypes gain more credence.
That means that not only are the individuals involved not sharing their citizenship, they also aren’t sharing a similar culture.
