Interracial dating: We lost another one to the others
"…some of the black men… that applaud and encourage ALL interracial and NONDATING of black women think he’s a GREAT ROLE MODEL FOR YOUNG BLACK BOYS! Show them they can be standup guys, highly educated, smart and educated and that if their “romantic preference” is someone that DOES NOT LOOK LIKE THEIR MOTHER, SISTER OR AUNTIE, then hey, EVEN BETTER!!!!
THIS is what we want to teach our black boys, huh??? NO THANKS!!!" - Comment on SingleBlackMale.org (SBM)
Of course that was a reaction to some black male celebrity (Robert Griffin III) and his white fiancee. Just the other day, co-author, "Swirling: How to Date, Mate and Relate, Mixing Race, Culture and Creed" Christelyn Karazin wrote about Black women hating on Michael Ealy for marrying a non-black woman. It was the case of 'we lost another successful black man to the others' ; 'another one tosses black women aside'.

Why do people care so much about other people’s dating preferences; especially where race is concerned? People always try to figure out why some people date outside their race… why their dating preference isn't their own skin color. "They must be brainwashed!" "This always happens when they get money and become successful!", we might say. But honestly speaking, there is nothing about someone’s natural dating preference to warrants some sociological case study. Its just that! PREFERENCE! Why can't people just accept that that's that?
We sooo badly wan't equality yet for some reason, we have forgotten what equality is all about. We want equality for all races yet when it comes to dating, we have a different definition for it; we bring superiority and inferiority of races into it. That black men date white women because white is more beautiful. :roll: We need to just let other people be; let them date who they want. The worst thing is that some people make other people’s dating their business to the extent of throwing tantrums when a man marries a fair skinned woman within their own race. So s(he) is fair skinned.? Are all men and women supposed to stay away from her to avoid the scornful mouth of society? Is s(he) supposed to be punished for it by staying single; or forced to date within their fair-skinned pool?
Just because one man or woman decided to marry or date out, has got nothing to do with him or her abandoning his/her entire racial group. It’s his preference. FULL STOP!
To use the words of Streetz of SBM, “Who hurt you”? Are there experiences you have had in your life that have make you so livid when your race or skin color is not someone’s dating preference? What’s even worse is: we rant about men and women whom we might die even before we ever get the chance to be 3 feet away from them; celebrities! Or did s(he) date you once-upon-a-time the dumped you for "the others"?
This misplaced anger at celebs and/or people in your neighborhood and their love lives: TOTAL WASTE OF TIME!!! It’s shallow! Maybe that’s the reason why they are not interested in you in the first place! You need to exercise your own dating options. You can also date out and let others blog about it!
