Collectively speaking, I believe this country will never be fully “ok” with interracial relationships (IRR) between black women and white men. America suffers from too much historical baggage and an extreme case of “damn can’t we just move on?” deficiency. Furthermore I feel that this country is uncomfortable seeing a black women paired with ANY man perceived to be non-black. Nonetheless, that’s not what this site is about. This site is about OPENLY exploring your options of interracial dating/marriage regardless of who you are and where you come from.
Naturally my postings are from an African-American woman’s perspective. However I’m about finding and maintaining IRRs regardless of race, creed, culture or gender. It's about being with someone even if that means losing ‘so-called’ friends and family. Sometimes it takes an IRR to find out who your real friends are. Sometimes an IRR will even expose the undeniable fact that families will never give your relationship the love and support you may need. As I said before, never let someone else’s discomfort dictate who you're attracted to or fall in love with!
Now on to the Video of The Week:
I picked this video because there’s no denying the fact that America is light years behind the acceptance of bw in non-black romantic relationships. This video echos that statement and much more. Without giving too much of the video away, a couple of statements that stuck out for me:
Nomfumdo: On past relationships: "We both were equal opportunity lovers".
Hagan: On what their society's views are in terms of IRRs: "The cultural thing outweighs the color thing".
Reflect and enjoy...
