Issues of interracial dating
It kind of throws a damper on the inclination to explore interracial dating if you know your parents said they would disown you if you ever brought home a white boy. I’m seeing more and more Black women finding their bliss with the men who love and accept them, regardless of race. If you’re lonely and sad, but your entire peer group (including family) approves of the idea of never dating a non-Black man even if he was utterly kick-ass amazing, can you really say those people in your life want the best for you?Which bills are they paying to have this much power in your life?For all of the people coming to my page thinking I wrote those comments? First, we submit our petition to the Unicode Consortium (the governing body of all things emoji), describing why interracial couples deserve emoji representation.Candice: Why do you think there are so many Black women who don’t consider dating outside their race? Our country’s shameful history of slavery is often used as a club to beat Black women into submission about dating interracially, particularly when it comes to white men. I would say that if you’re the type of person who is overly concerned with what other people think about your life, then interracial dating is not for you.I’ve often been called by my critics, “The Chief Bed Wench,” because I’m seen at the forefront of this issue. But many Black women are sensitive to that kind of insult and outright disapproval. We want the people in our lives to approve of the men we bring home. It comes down to what makes you happy and what makes your heart feel like it’s found its home.

Redskins linebacker Lynden Trail usually poses questions to his Facebook followers, but when he asked about interracial dating, Trail got a divisive answer from a football fan.
The post has since been removed, but Trail asked why wealthy Black athletes marry white women Thursday, March 16.
As followers awaited responses from other users who began to weigh in, a Miami Dolphins fan called Maserati Rick responded by bashing Black women.
He relied on stereotypes to fuel his argument, saying Black wome “are stubborn, closed minded, and always have to argue and be the boss,” as captured in Baller Alert screenshots.
