What is the meaning of ” Once you go black you never go back”?
“Once you go black, you never go back.” What does this mean? The term is used to describe a person who has had an experience with a Black person–either in the bedroom or as friends. It can also be applied to other ethnicities and races too.
For example, “once you date a Latino man, you never go back.” This phrase means that once someone has had an intimate or close experience with someone of another ethnicity/race they will not want anything else.
Once you go black you never go back” can refer to white women who have slept with Black men, and because of this, they can’t be satisfied by anyone other than another Black man again.
This is a racist form of the stereotype that Black men are all “endowed” with large sexual organs.
The phrase, “once you go black you never go back” is often used in a joking manner to tell someone that they will never want anything else.
The saying was popularized by the song “Once You Go Black” by Bobby Byrd and James Brown.
