There is nothing to worry about. She will be fine. At least she will have a great uncle. I turned out okay. We bought crop tops, tight jeans, and earrings so big that they touched our shoulders. On the ride home we were quiet and I decided I would never date a black man as long as my feet touched this earth. It was like that for a while—dismissing every suitor who resembled my father. The only girl in my group of black girlfriends who had a boyfriend was dating a white boy who was white enough to have a family that hated black people.
We would sit squished in a row behind them with all of our smirks perfectly even as they drove us home. There was something about watching a black boy murdered from the comfort of my home that made me want to go out and love a black man as hard as I could, as though somehow it could resurrect the child in him. I started dating my first official black boyfriend, a neuroscientist, shortly after. He was gentle in a very straightforward way, pulling out chairs for me at restaurants and picking me up after work to take me to exhibition openings, where he would look at me instead of looking at the art.
He supported my work and called me Butterfly; our relationship was nauseatingly blissful. I was so content in who I was with him. I posted photos of black love on every social media account and considered myself as part of a larger revolution. I wore Black Lives Matter buttons, attended marches, sported hoodies, vowed to date only black men, and prepared myself to raise a son who might be faced with a death in the same vein as Trayvon, a name I had spoken so often that it felt like that of a brother.
Our portrait was perfectly hung and constantly dusted for shine.
But whenever he would call, I would let my phone ring until the screen went black. It was only a month later that it struck me that it was over. After nine months, my black savior, the neuroscientist, had broken up with me and left me with no words to cry over. It felt too ironic; the first black man who I dated had left me in exactly the way that I feared.
He had grown tired of letting me pretend, I realized. I cleaned myself up: I got a well-paying job; moved to the city; got my own apartment and painted it yellow and got plants to place on the windowsill. I avoided the letdown of a fantasy dying. I joined Tinder on a whim to break the routine of eat, work, eat, sleep.
I had stopped knowing who to count out at parties or open bars, and so I winged it. I found myself on a first date with a guy who was born and raised in Yonkers, with a family from El Salvador. He told me that he had gotten out of a year relationship with the girl he thought he would marry and I told him that I had spent two years alone finding myself.
We were open with each other; he had been warned to stay away from black girls, and I was advised to not date men of color. We stood on the head of our warnings every day as we got to know each other. Our conversations always started with why. And my previous statement is just that they can become mainstream American without losing that.
The black community leaders however seem to feel that if they Americanize too much they'll lose their culture.
In trying to protect that, they've encouraged this attitude that you don't want to act white. And the poor kids have taken this to the extreme. They're acting white if they try to do well in school, plan on going to college, treat their women with respect finally back to the basis of the article that started this , take responsibility for the kids they father, etc. Yes, but I'll leave it to you to look up as it's after 11 pm here. Suffice it to say, they would have to be since most blacks committing crimes are multiple offenders and therefore would be not eligible to have a hand gun.
Consider that some of the highest gun crime levels in the country are in DC where virtually no private citizen is allowed to have any gun even now after their ban was ruled unconstitutional. WBW - Anyway, even if weapons were obtained illegally with stricter gun laws there would be much less weapons around and it would be more difficult to obtain weapons illegally.

Ireland well enough to stop the IRA from getting all the guns it needed. But you expect the US borders to be locked down. The same borders that are a sieve to illegal narcotics. Why do people some of the same people who argue that we will never stop illegal drugs coming into the country will then in the same breadth argue that tighter gun control will stop gun crimes?
I fully agree. I stated that in an early post. The benefits would be broad and varied. Your description is right on. I believe it would be a great benefit to the country as a whole, the black community in particular, and to Mexico and other Latin American nations. Good job.

L.A. Affairs: I’m a black woman. He’s a white guy with a pickup truck. Here’s what happened
You mentioned that you and your black lady friends are rarely approached by white males. I agree that some white males unfortunately aren't interested in black females. But I don't think that's the entire problem. As a white male, I can say that white males often believe that black females are only interested in black guys. Therefore, the white male won't take the first step to ask out the black girl.
I have several white friends who would ask out black ladies if they thought they had a chance. But unfortunately, American society seems to suggest, rightly or not, that black females just aren't interested in white guys. I'm not a part of american society, but i dare make some assumptions. As i understand black people are less well-off than the white. Hence the conclusion: maybe black women have little chances to find mates because even black men sometimes prefer white women??? I tend to agree with ideology, that if black males committed less crime, there would be more eligible bachelors, and less incidents of social pathology.
It is a, "like duh" type observation. However, stating black men should commit less crime, is like telling a fat person to eat less and exercise if they want to lose weight. Yes it is an obvious response that is poignant, but an oversimplification in many ways. I am not arguing that black men are compelled to commit crime, but there are historical legacies and institutionalized racism, that, shall I say, limits, narrows and can guide certain individuals into crime.
If you want to look at an example of institutionalized racism's impact on the modern world, look at "jim crow" laws as they were practiced throughout the southern US, and defacto in the rest of the US. Within the last years, after postbellum years of Jim Crow acts until the voting rights act, it was state sanctioned discrimination that had a profound impact marginalizing the financial foundations and stability of the black american family, and those vestiges of disenfranchisement still are taking a toll today. Black females are NOT pursued by men of other races.
There have been countless sociological studies that show black females as being viewed as "less attractive" and garnering less attention from non black males. There have been studies of online dating sites, which show that on average, black females receive less responses from men then females of other "racial" groups.
While it sure may be easy to ask, "why dont they date outside their race?
- To the white men who told me that they “prefer” white women!

If you want an inverse of this, in the US, "asian" [a large catchall of ethnic groups] females marry outside their race in very high percents. However, asian men have one of the lowest rates of marry non asians. People who do not understand the dynamics and history or race in America, maybe have trouble understanding all the nuances involved in this issue. Its very nice to get that warm fuzzy feeling about multiculturalism, diversity and wanting black women to marry non black males, but as the saying goes, "it takes two to tango" and before you marry someone of another race, you have to be pursued or fancied by someone of another race.
It's been said but I'll say it again: if you can't find a black man marry a non-black man. As a man I'm sure I speak for most men when I say this: we like women. Black women, white women, Native American women, Australian women, red-haired women, it doesn't much matter - we like women. Sure, some of us have unrealistic expectations, but women do too.
Really, just about anyone who wants to marry can find a reasonably good spouse - it's not that tough. I just wanted to add that I find that many of the comments on this website are inspiring. As a black women it is refreshing to see so many intelligent white men who understand that the mass incarceration of black men and other problems of black men do not need to negatively impact the lives of Black women who have for the most part proven themselves to be strivers.
And I also don't believe that white men need to have the same life experiences as black people to understand that fact.
While the article's conclusion was simply silly, it made me smile to see so many white men step up to the plate and correct the author's erroneous conclusion. For those white men who have stepped up and corrected this author's conclusion, I want to say thank you. I also want to say that there is nothing standing between black men or women and success. Our ancestors have paved the road for us, all we have to do is walk down the path. We have been left a great legacy and our lives are so much easier than our forefathers, we have no excuse. Please do not shame our ancestors by coming to websites and whining about someone looking at you the wrong way or someone discriminating against you.
This is life, there will always be people attempting to get in your way.
