@JennMJack Jenn, you have every right to defend yourself. I told you how I feel. I thought how I was brought in, and certain folks DEMANDING that I stop my work and address something BECAUSE THEY SAID SO pissed me off. This turned into something horribly ugly, and I don't in my heart think that you fathomed what the reverberation would be. The fallout is significant, @JennMJack. I now you didn't want it to go down like that. @MiseeHarris not only is Jenn my friend, she is my business partner. I PISSED that her post is the catalyst to how I got dragged in, but she's a sweet soul, and has passion. Actions have consequences that we don't always anticipate. Such is life.

@Atlantic_Equity I'm sorry dude....I gotta be honest. Based on your Twitter feed, you like rachet women that look like video hoes, and you wonder why you have to be so protective. You're not looking at LaKeisha the law student who would rather be caught dead than be in an head down, bottom's up photo dressed in a g-string. We all got our tastes, but...yeah. #noshade

@Atlantic_Equity @Christelyn @Cami2210 @PrettyBLKgurl This is my last comment, because I don't have time to quibble. You're free to vent your frustrations in dating. We've all had them. I'm just warning you that you're not making any friends. I think it's the tone of your posts. Meh...Either way it doesn't affect me. We're not dating. ;-)

@Atlantic_Equity @Cami2210 @PrettyBLKgurl I know @Atlantic_Equity is a real person, and we've been in IR circles for years. That said, dude, you know you're ruffling feathers and you come off brusque. It's almost like you want to feel like you're superior to these women you date. People are picking up on that. I'm cool either way as long as you keep it respectful, but I do see why the other ladies have their hackles up.

@janet14 @NATruthstudent Janet, in all due respect, you can't come here and ORDER me to not write on things you don't like. If I were "preaching to the choir" as you say, why is it I'm getting notes for young women thanking me for speaking out on this, because they are ridiculed for their hesitancy to be lurid in social media? BTW, @NATruthstudent has every right to comment. You're being rude.
@janet14 The woman in the yoga pose is white.
@Keioni I do approve. It's my blog. But I run it much like a magazine, with varying thoughts and opinions. There are writers here who are atheists, black women married interracially, bisexual writers, Christian and conservative writers. I don't agree with everything they write. We are not the Borg Collective. Knowledge is gained when traditional notions are challenged.

@Keioni You have a point. However, I'm not the producer of that content. We have varying opinions on the subject here. We are not of all one mind. However, this is mine...Christelyn Denise Karazin. This is MY opinion.
@dbrooks109 Apparently she knows he's interested, and they are dating. From what I understand, she said this to his face. I'm shocked she would say this. Imagine if a white man said something like that to a black woman he was dating. Giving passes to those in your race, holding higher standards to others outside of it. Yeah...NOPE.

@Cheree Hi Cheree, thanks for sharing. I'll take a look at your articles.
@ShunJack Exactly. When I was a kid, I didn't know either. That's on purpose.
@TitaniumFirefly Okay I'll concede that Cleopatra was European. :-)
@MonicaZerby *raises hand* Many of us know our history, Monica. Thus the basis of this post. You might want to look up some history, tho...
@IrvingLegagneurSr You're comparing mythology to the bible. Regardless of whether or not you think the bible is a made up story or not, it is also a HISTORY book. BTW, I did a DNA test recently and I'm part Scandinavian. So I totally co-sign Norse god being a hot black guy.
@Browncow "Where was Kerri Washington or Nicole Beharie? That would at least put you in the ball park"

@ShunJack @FrankEiDaTanky @Christelyn I know it's not great news, but folks are ready to slay the messenger.
@ShunJack @Christelyn @FrankEiDaTanky I can see it just fine...
@FrankEiDaTanky @Christelyn Frank, like I said, I WANT these relationships to work. But that doesn't mean we won't discuss reality. These are very REAL challenges, and black women are getting HURT. They are wasting YEARS of their lives with men who aren't following through, and that is WRONG. These men are bending to family pressure and it happens a lot and I'm sorry if you don't want us to talk about it. But my job is to support and guide black women as best I can, and sometimes that might not reflect well on others. My priority is the well being of BLACK WOMEN.
@FrankEiDaTanky @Christelyn It's right here. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/store/10.1111/j.1741-3729.2008.00491.x/asset/j.1741-3729.2008.00491.x.pdf;jsessionid=35C4C8780F9C5244431B7EF2D3D76403.f04t03?v=1&t=i3i00h54&s=ed4a0cae2be2f3676f266c36aea0ce26ded77e69
@FrankEiDaTanky And Frank, wasn't it you that did the video about wanting to date black women that I put up on my You Tube channel? Did we not talk on the phone, and did I not encourage you and give you advice? How can you even form your fingers to state that I'm trying to damage the AM/BW movement?!
@FrankEiDaTanky Like I've stated time and time again: I WANT these relationships to work. News like this is disappointing to everyone here. But the stats don't lie: the longest lasting IR relationships of ALL is between black women and white men. I didn't make it up, and sorry it rubs you wrong.
@Atlantic_Equity Bottom line, if a man objects to a woman's desire for a masculine man, then that man is probably not that type of man. And that's okay, because there's plenty of women out there who don't find masculine traits attractive.

@VeeSovauhn @Christelyn @Vivaforever The only issue I have with your statement above is that a forum full of sexual innuendo isn't a climate you're making friends in. I don't talk to my friends about how good it is to eat p*ssy or give BJ's. I fear that so many AM in that group aren't taking black women seriously and are having their already skewed stereotypes confirmed. But understand, I value our connection, and appreciate how you've facilitated open communication with AM and BW. I still think the page is off the rails.
1 week, 2 days ago on Asian Men…I’m Getting To a Certain Point Where I’m Ready to Throw it In.
@LaShondaMatlock @ScorpioEnigma09 @Christelyn Thank you. It's only fair that we focus on all the aspects, and I really respect your persistence and patience in seeing your point of view.
@LaShondaMatlock @Christelyn @Brenda55 @ScorpioEnigma09 Fair enough. Those unions need to be acknowledged, and if you direct me to where I can learn more, I'll report on it. It's intriguing...and encouraging.
@LaShondaMatlock @Christelyn @Brenda55 @ScorpioEnigma09 I respect that your experience has been different. I'm not trying to discount that. If you look through the archives, I have always supported these unions. But the stats reflect that white men are the highest percentage of men intermarrying with black women. I'm not making it up...it just is.
@VeeSovauhn @Christelyn @Vivaforever Vee, you know I have been pulling for you, support you, support your group, and God knows I want these connections to happen. I didn't mention your group specifically, but since you outed yourself, I gotta be honest. I was part of the group for four years and I saw how it devolved from someplace hopeful, thoughtful and with tons of potential into being every. other. post. about sex, sex positions, sex acts, people you would sex, etc. It's not just Thursdays, it's every day. I had to think long and hard about leaving the group, because I have always desired to support this, but then when I saw how the Asian men who joined the group began to behave toward the black women there...like cheap pieces of ass, I just couldn't support it anymore. And it not just my opinion...it's be reverberated all over by people who have left who were turned off. But hey, it's your page, and your effort, and if you see nothing wrong with it, then so be it. You're still my friend, and I still respect your efforts, but I can't with that page anymore.
@Brenda55 @Christelyn @ScorpioEnigma09 No kidding. Can't win for losing. I know people are comfortable about pigeonholing any group, and I of course understand that. But if I'm getting the letters, the stories, the anecdotes then it's not just my opinion, is it? My issue is I don't want black women to go into another situation where they feel inferior to colorist and racist individuals in hopes of seeking love. We have to HONEST. And the fact is, when it comes to interracial dating, white men are simply the most receptive. I know that makes some people uncomfortable, and I know there are exceptions, and I seen them and reported them and celebrated them. I've done SO MANY positive posts about AM/BW, but...the reality is that these unions can present unique challenges.
@LaShondaMatlock @Christelyn @ScorpioEnigma09 Actually, Rainer and I are friends, and he has been featured on this blog, and I like a lot of what he has to say. By no means should a post like this discourage you from what you desire, but I feel like I have a responsibility to make sure I'm not guiding black women from one frying pan to another. Does that make sense?
@ScorpioEnigma09 @Christelyn My goal is to ensure that BW aren't going into situations where they are begging to be loved. I'm sorry if that is off-putting to you.
@ScorpioEnigma09 @Cami2210 @Vivaforever What do you mean?
@LaShondaMatlock @Christelyn @Vivaforever Yes Rainer is my buddy. Classy guy.
@Vivaforever I'll also add, that I don't allow that mess on ANY of BB&W's social media assets. And because of this, low-hung fruit soon realize that's not the place for them.
@Vivaforever "Is it the AM/BW movement being pushed by some black women that's having some of these guys feeling over confident and as if their opinions are that valuable?"
I believe that some of it is. I had to leave a group on Facebook that I belonged to for four years because the black women were so thirsty and desperate the the Asian men where using it as a cheap hook up and ego boost. I was really, really disgusted to see all the black women on there, half naked, BEGGING these men to give them any lick of attention. It was horrific and self-sabotaging. When I made any mention that *maybe* this wasn't the best way of going about getting an AM's attention, I was poo-pooed. I'm done. Those pages are now doing more harm that good. I swear I think the admin of one is just using it for a steady piece of black booty.
@Neecy Hi Neecy. I think the difference is that son's responsibility to carry on the family name, plus take care of the parents. That same responsibility isn't put on the girls.
Funny enough, just got this note from an Asian man:
"I dated one black woman in my life. I find that the person in my life should be strong willed in order to keep up with me. I am strong minded, okay stubborn, and I find that most Black woman to be attractive.
I live in Brooklyn so I am surrounded by Black woman. I just don’t interact with them as much. I would like too. "
