White Women Taking America's Eligible Black
Though interracial relationships are increasingly
more accepted in society, some citizens still feel
that it’s important to “stay with your
own kind” when it comes to love. Today’s
guests have a range of opinions on the subject;
learn more below:
Jordan and Karen are of the school of thought
that black men wrongly surpass strong black women
for white women. Jordan rationalizes the trend
by saying that black men prefer the “passive
nature” of white women. Though Karen herself
is married to a white man, she says she would
do it all differently if she had the chance to
change the past.
Daval and Mikal say that they are living proof
that interracial relationships can work. When
they first met, the overwhelming attraction drew
them together and overshadowed any other factors
such as race. According to Mikal, there is a
shortage of good men regardless of color and
she feels lucky to have found Daval. Daval disputes
Jordan’s and Karen’s perspective,
saying that interracial relationships are a product
of positive evolution.
After ten years of marriage with a black woman,
Ron says he will never, ever date or marry another
black woman. He says he endured “grueling
misery” in a series of same-race relationships
and that black women are prone to violence and
antagonism. Though he tries not to generalize
his experiences to all African-American women,
Ron does believe that our society is breeding
many undesirable black women.
Like Ron, Kourtney has sworn off dating within
her own race. She says that she prefers black men
because they treat women better than white men.
Though Kourtney admits that she initially dated
Darnell out of curiosity, she says Darnell has
taught her that good men do exist. Darnell adds
he is willing to endure the animosity of others
because “you can’t help who you love.”
In Kadeja’s eyes, black men who date white
women are “defectors.” She devotes
a wall in her home to pictures of black men being
lynched and tells her family members who date white
women that they’re next on the lynch list.
