I SO appreciate your honesty. I can't speak for anyone other than myself, but I'd like to expound on what I said earlier. The feelings I have regarding interracial relationships isn't so black and white...no pun intended. It's a little grey for me. First of all, it's absolutely NONE of my business who anyone marries or dates. It does make me feel really good to see Black couples, celebs or not, in happy lasting realtionships, especially since I know so many of my sisters are longing for such for themselves, and we're happy for the ones we see. I mean, dang...the Black family unit is almost extinct in some parts of the country (meaning the father, mother, and kids in one home). I guess it comes down FOR ME anyway, that if someone falls in love, it really shouldn't matter who it's with. HOWEVER, when I see a PATTERN in our Black men, where they WILL NOT date Black women ever, but only Whites, for me that's a very disheartening thing to see. For me (again, I'm no professional, this is only my opinion, lol) for me it just seems like when they refuse to date their own race at all, it seems like such a slap in the face...to their mothers, to every aunt that every changed their diapers, and all of their sisters, etc. It's like saying, once we get status and wealth, yall are no longer good enough. (I know the po' brothas get down with the get down, too yall)...Again, this is not for Black men who date other races...this is for the ones who WILL NOT date their own race at all. Anyway, it's just good to be able to share our opinions, though different as they may be. I love my Black peeps. But I try to love everybody else, too. Can't we all just get along...heehee
Now, if you don't mind me asking...do you feel as though Black women push Black men away, really?
