Interracial dating black men
What do all of these grim statistics have to do with interracial dating?
Nothing directly, but they may help us understand the frustration some black women having with the sight of men from their community reaching out to women of a lighter shade.
I’ll deal with this problem in greater detail in a future post, but for now, I repeat that the best advice is to love who love and understand that anyone who doesn’t want you to love who you want to love doesn’t really love you.
In an recent post for Essence magazine’s website, singer Jill Scott set off a firestorm of controversy around the topic of white women dating black men.
When giving her opinion, she said that she “felt a little wince” when told by a black male friend that he had tied the knot to a white woman.“When our people were enslaved, ‘Massa’ placed his Caucasian woman on a pedestal.” Scott said, “She was spoiled, revered and angelic, while the Black slave woman was overworked, beaten, raped and farmed out like cattle to be mated.
She was nothing and neither was our Black man.”Uh-oh!
The good news is that it’s not 1947, meaning we now live in a world where loving who you want to love doesn’t demand the bravery it once did.
