Hello
When virtuals particles appears near a black hole , the one with a negative charge is attracted by the black hole , and as mass is proportional to energy , the black hole "evaporates" . My question is , why the particle attracted is always the one with the negative charge , is it because of electromagnetism ? (The black hole being charged postivly )
Sorry or the faults , i'm not english :)

Where did you read this? What makes you think it is so?

Are you referring to particle/antiparticles?

Here is a diagram showing one of each type escaping.
