I married une Africaine. Guess what? She likes hiking and
sh!t just like a regular person. I totally ruined her for climbing
by being a jerk and pushing her too hard. She does jones for
a good hippo loin from time to time but a choice filet mignon
will usually placate her.

Am I doomed to a life without love because beautiful black women don't climb?

No, belay that...

Look beyond, grasshoppher.

Beyond when you have only the one leg.

Do I really have to point out the "Jungle Fever" part of the OP?

How backwards/backwoods are you, Mr. 67 posts?

I'd agree there seems to be a shortage there. It's too bad since there are a lot of very athletic and able African American women who would make awesome climbers.

I do know one such woman, she is an exceptional climber and is indeed credited as being the first African American woman to climb El Cap. Sadly for you she has a man already. There was a photograph of her doing Separate Reality in Climbing one time.

Perhaps you could get the ball rolling. Take up some other sports which have a higher participation rate among this group, and recruit them for climbing. You could start a trend.

I'm with ya cuz, i used to kick it with this little nubian minx. she was athletic, ripped like a mofo and climbed occasionally. Probably only with me though. I sorta wished she was still around, but like most hot chicks, i got sick of her sh#t and had cut her loose.

White people love to be offended on other peoples behalf. It's quite fascinating, really.

Some like 'em thick, some like 'em short, some like 'em light, some like 'em dark... I realize the term is insensitive, but it seems like he means well. Sh#t, if nothing else the OP's predilection for a darker complexion might make the world a better place - if he finds women who prefer funky lookin' white dudes, and they hit it off, the world is a better place right?

Don't always see the worst - try to have fun. We all have skin and its all sorts of colors, shapes, etc... nothing wrong with a little celebration of that, and online its kind of harmless.

Isn't the Jungle Fever reference to Spike Lee's movie about inter-racial relationships?

The trouble with that is I don't get it. Wasn't the main character a white woman having an affair with the African American lead role?

Maybe not racial slur, but weak post.

Did you just call Vitalay 'Vittles'?

Just a quick question, how big can you make your mouth?

I may have a job for you.

I like the posts, real discussion.

I've seen a few black women climbers, but the sport is seriously whitewashed as charged. Black is beautiful for sure, and I wish I really did have the cure for the fever (don't tell my white wife!). Hahaha... I thought my wife was more exotic in heritage, like that Seinfeld episode where two white people date each other thinking the other is something else(how dated is that Seinfeld reference, right?). Turns out my wife's just Irish and Ukrainian. Sigh. Hearty folk, not averse to surviving off table scraps, but hardly exotic.

Certainly there are more Asian climbers and when I lived in Phoenix, there was a large Hispanic population of climbers. I hope the sport gets more diverse in every way. It used to be just a gentleman's sport and now they let white trash progeny like me play with ropes too. Certainly, even those non-funky white women look pretty good in tight pants, their pale complexion aside.

"To be fair - luckily for us pasty folks, not many black men or women climb. There would be records broken left and right."

Ya'll ever see White Men Can't Jump?

I don't think climbing has any kind of disposition to race or ethnicity when it comes to performance, one of the best climbers in the world is a 11 year old girl...

It helps to be light weight, but climbing is about adapting your body to the rock - so long as you have decent genetics, are physically gifted and are motivated as all hell to train hard you can be world class.
