Does Art have a role to play in interracial dating?
Never underestimate the power of Artwas the phrase that caught my attention in an article (Jesse Davis Murder Highlights Perils Of Interracial Relationships). Jesse was a white woman who was murdered by her Black spouse/ Canton Police officer Bobby Cutts Jr. And what’s worse is that she was pregnant at the time. So what’s Art got to do with it?
According to the article, the current popular trend of racial intermingling, unprecedented in American history and most often visible between white women and black men, is tacitly the designed fallout, and direct result of, the ultra-macho "gangsta" black virile male image, as propagated in Hip-Hop videos and popular media, that many self-effacing white women with low self-esteem seem to find fatally irresistible.

First of all, interracial dating aint just about black men and white women. As long as you have crossed the racial border, be it Italian on White, Latino on Black, it is interracial.
And look at the statement above! I cannot even begin to pick out the stereotypes depicted… from ‘ultra macho’ to ‘low self-esteem’. And it doesn’t just end there. It goes on to say that ‘Politically and economically power-shy Blacks have long manipulated media into a weapon of sexual invasion with great effect, as sexual invasion is the mightiest weapon of them all.’
So does this mean that Music is now being used as weapon to sexually appeal to White women? Is Art - hip-hop music in this case - the reason why people choose to date Black men? So what about the Eminems of this world then? And how do we explain this double murder of a White woman and fetus by her Black dude? Some intent on his part? Fatal attraction? Art? You tell me.
