Black Men's Preference for non-Black women?

An issue which is usually avoided by most of the media is the attitude of black men towards physical attractiveness and beauty. I grew up middle-class in the 1970's, 1980's, and it may distress you to learn that virtually EVERY black man I knew preferred white women over black. Indeed, several of my black friends EXCLUSIVELY dated white or Asian women. Why is this? Is it self-hatred? Is it the fault of the media?
