Interracial dating debates

XOJane 's Shayla Pierce says that she needs to re-evaluate her approach to cultural conflicts with her white boyfriend. I had a fight with my boyfriend this past weekend. Which isn't exactly headline news for most people, but we hardly ever fight. And when we do, it's usually over something so trivial it's embarrassing to think about once we've both calmed down.

[Debate] Views on interracial couples?

Recently, a production company picked up feature film rights to the movie. What kind of silliness is that? This is the stuff I do not like. Then in the middle you have people like me who honestly do not care and wish that everyone would just stop talking about it — even those that are supposedly in support of it! Especially those that are supposedly in support of it. Maybe there are some Black women who have taken a look at their lackluster love lives and decided that Black men were the problem, so they made a conscious decision to date or marry someone of another race.

I am not one of those women. In fact, I think that any woman who believes that a husband being White or Black will insure her against infidelity or divorce or general unhappiness is just delusional.

To begin with, the article never stated, nor have I ever told my son not to "date" white girls. He has always had a number of white friends, male and female alike; he has escorted white girls to proms, and continues to have friendships with whites now that he is in college. I have also dated white men, but married a black man, and want my son to marry a black girl. This to me is normal, natural and what people of all races, tribes, ethnic groups and nationalities have done for eons.

I thought this should be separate from the Relationships and Dating thread because this is a very specific aspect of that. Being a young Black male, the whole discussion around dating outside of your race is a tricky one to have.

Why I Wish We Would Stop Advising Black Women To Date Outside The Race

We live in a multicultural society. By integrating with different cultures and nationalities, we are doing away with the seeds of hate, racism, and prejudice. Interracial relationships provide individuals with the unique opportunity to learn, experience, and appreciate different cultures and backgrounds.
