Why can’t it be Black men and all men, instead of black men or no one at all? I’m not willing to keep sacrificing my sisters for the sake of the cause.I often hear the old, tired line that black folks need to work on themselves before they can mingle romantically with other races. You can still advocate for change and love your blackness if you have a non-black spouse.
Daters of all races are welcome to join, and in doing so, they’ll get access to tons of helpful features, including Advanced Search that will allow them to narrow down exactly the type of person they’re looking for.
It’s time to have an honest, open discussion about interracial relationships.
Why is it “problematic” to open yourself up to other men who might love you?
No one is suggesting Black women avoid black men altogether. We’ve been trying to “work through our issues” for over a century.
Marriageable Black women outnumber marriageable Black men by the millions.
Yet we’re statistically the least likely to date interracially. My goal is to encourage Black women to exercise all of their options. Discount no one because of melanin, or lack thereof. Candice: What advice would you offer women who don’t date interracially because of what people might think? I know a few women who would never date interracially, despite the knowledge that men of other races are interested in them.
Being in an interracial relationship doesn’t make you Black.
Candice: Another question I get a lot from Black women who are looking to date outside their race is how can they put themselves in the position to meet a man?
Christelyn: Black women have a unique set of challenges in the dating market.
If she wants to be married, have children, etc., the numbers just aren’t in her favor to remain exclusive to Black men.
We have layers, and like all women, we are complicated and splendid creatures.
