Great article. Very interesting to read about how young people perceive interracial dating.

Unfortunately there are enough NBABM women out there who will make these jerks rich. Would be fun to find out what type of women they date. Most likely not BW. There are so many better ways to spend our hard earned $$$.

@Loveinmosaic Agree that the fact that he's "conservative" is irrelevant to his anti-Black women viewpoint. He's just a hater.

@PJDeanwriter Perhaps not. I doubt any of the people who frequent this blog are attracted to someone like Peterson. I doubt his popularity will rise -- except among folks who already share his hate for Black women.
"wacky, right wing conservative sock puppet"
Naw!! Better you than me. I think I'll pass. LOL.
P.S. I've heard of Peterson before and he sounds crazy -- which probably has little to do with his politics.

Is Tony okay with this post and his picture being publicized? I think we can move on from the AM/BW discussion since we seem to be repeating ourselves. It's clear that AM/BW relationships in the US are difficult and appear to be very rare. Move on.

@keimiasmoon Perhaps because some BW have had negative experiences with Asian men and are vocal about it. Plus, many women were reacting to the Asian Letter Writer's over-the-top "all BW are ratchet" statement highlighted in Christelyn's last post about AW.
I don't think anyone here is claiming that WM are never racist or anti-BW.

@lily ot valley Great advice. He needs to tell her that he was disturbed by her comment about holding WM to a higher standard if they abuse their spouses. Be honest about his feelings and see how she reacts. Perhaps, she'll understand where he is coming from and apologize.
I've heard similar comments from Black women. One BW told me that she would have flashbacks to slavery if a WM ever raised his hand to her. Race is still a very big deal here in the U.S. so it's not shocking that some BW have these views.
The Letter Writer is pretty much West Indian and I assume that makes a big difference. I know of several Indian men from Jamaica, Trinidad, and Guyana who are married to Black women. Not really a big deal in the Caribbean.
@BeautyIAM 50 Cent not only told the BW to shut up, he called her the "b" word. Pathetic dude.

I'm on the fence. I loved THE TEN COMMANDMENTS despite its whitewashing and I love Christian Bale. It's good that Ridley Scott has been challenged about his casting of this movie though. Perhaps he and other directors will get a clue the next time around.
@jisamuel3 Good luck to you. Here's a nice website that features AM/BW.
It often posts AM/BW meetups.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Asian Men…I’m Getting To a Certain Point Where I’m Ready to Throw it In.
Interesting that the Asian letter writer feels that Black women in general are "ratchet". I guess that would include those who spend their money at Asian-owned businesses (like beauty stores, nail salons, etc.). I have two Aunts and a cousin married to Asian men but I assume this is because the men are from Jamaica where it's not such a big deal to marry outside your race.
I agree with Christelyn and most commenters that Black women need to stop wasting time trying to be in relationships with men who don't want them -- for whatever reason. Life is way too short for all that mess.
She was so beautiful in that before photo. Sad.

Just read that Ms Lauten had her own run in with the law when she was a teen. She is not in any position to be running her trashy mouth about two young ladies who have more class than she'll ever have. Plus the Bush girls weren't classy and yet I don't recall Democrat Officials attacking them. There are photos of them rolling around in a bar for goodness sake.

Some articles are just too dumb to deserve any response. I couldn't even read the entirety of Mr. Douchey-Guy's write-up.
It is becoming obvious to Black women-haters that many Black women are living well and choosing well when it comes to romantic partners. Haters are going to hate. They have nothing else to do. Black women just have to keep focusing on being happy with themselves and ignore the haters.

@Adamw Yes, and Robert DeNiro who has married two African American women (and had a long term relationship with another African American woman) is another great example.
You look great, Matthew!! Congrats on the dramatic weight loss. If you're healthy but a bit overweight like Amber Riley, it's okay (love that she won her season of Dancing With Stars). But the Black community shouldn't accept obesity as the norm.

Jennings sounds like a horrible human being. If Black men commit crimes then they deserve to be in jail. I don't care about criminals of any color. Not sure why he seems to think that Black women should care about whether or not Black men suffer if they commit crimes -- especially when it comes to rape. My fear is that too many Black women don't speak up when they're raped and therefore too many Black rapists are roaming the streets seeking additional victims.
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Latest Foot-In-Mouth Cuisine Highlights How the BC Blames Black Women for Everything.
Sometimes you have to block negative comments/people/situations and find media/people/situations that uplift you as a Black woman. Thankfully there are loads of websites and Youtube videos in which Black women are uplifted. I'm really happy to see how many young Black women have their own websites where they feature Black women in interracial relationships (i.e., Blackgirlwhiteboylove.com).
Black Women Empowerment blogs such as this one are clear about the fact that there are racist people out there (Black men and non-Black men/women) who have a vested interest in putting Black women down. Focus on the positive. Internalizing anti-Black woman hatred only wounds our souls and destroys our self esteem. I hope this young woman and other Black young women learn how to filter out the garbage and luxuriate in the pro-Black woman resources that are out there.
Never let the bastards get you down.

2 months, 3 weeks ago on Honest Question: What Do Folks Expect Quality Black Women to Do? Shrivel Up and Die?
Well put. I don't care that a White woman who is featured in the video. Not surprised at all that some Black women are focused on protecting the Black men appearing in the video instead of on how street harassment impacts them.
I think by now, we all know that White women get more attention in regard to every issue. That's not going to change. We just have to highlight our issues the best way we can.
Wow. Thanks for that update. Hadn't heard anything more.
I thought that video was great since it brought attention to a serious issue. I don't begrudge White women speaking their truths. Perhaps a Black woman could also make a similar video highlighting how street harassment impacts us. I don't think it makes too much sense to always be upset just because White women get more attention than Black women. We already know this is how things work.
What I find nightmarish is that video that I saw this morning of that young Black lady in Pennsylvania who was dragged literally kicking and screaming into a car by what appears to be a Black male. I just pray that she will be found alive soon.
