Love it! A beautifully done and fun looking show!
Kurt and Quintana shared the fears and concerns many do about IR dating. Most of the time, you find out that the things you claim seem so different, really aren't anything but your own fears. Typically, some of the issues are more of a concern for you than the other person.
I can't wait to see how their dates with each other and others went.

I wish BM would stop talking about what is "best" for black women. So, they have a pulse on every black woman on the planet now? Who is he to talk for any black woman, let alone one who is not even American? Since when did black American men become so concerned with black foreign women's experiences? You can't even get black American men interested in the black women's life unless it is tied to her being with a non black man. Then he becomes "concerned."
I am so over BM talking about ANY fetishes when we know that they have some of the most well know very pervasive and very vocal thoughts about their "types" What they desire is not all "g", "pg" or kosher either.There are men of all races that fetish/fantasize women of all different looks, sizes, colors etc. What I wonder is why they don't spend time dissecting the Black male fetishes since they are black males. Stay in your lane, keep your eyes on your own paper. BM equally fetish/fantasize non black women and somehow they are only "concerned" that black women are "victims".
More than that, fetish has become such a bad word but, the nature of desire is steeped in some sort of "fetish" thoughts/behavior.
These types will never be happy. Even biracial/lighter/brighter women are "off limits" to non black men.

The tourism video for Faroe Islands make me extremely happy. So much so that I had to revisit it! Not sure about permanent "isolation" since that is a high consideration but, I could live there part time. It would be so amazing and serene to hike, climb and walk that island at my leisure. The video is good...real good!

@oekmamaLolz about bad clothing not weather.
Weird that I woke up wanting thick snowflake leggings to go under my skirts and a pair of Joan of Arctic snow boots for no good reason.
Especially odd attire for a girl that prides herself on living as a typical So Cal native who is planning a beach day tomorrow. In fact, I was just bragging about our perfect high 70s bikini beach weather and our odd but, welcome Indian summer-like winds yesterday.
I do love my native So Cal weather but, I think it could be fun living in a different climate.
@Conor FlanneryI wish I could have been a fly on the wall!! It was both of their lucky days to have you there so I am glad you were there and I get to read about it! Oh, but, I wish we could find out the outcome.
Congrats on the engagement!
I love this post! You did an awesome job of pointing out that if Iceland is not for you, elsewhere might be. I am so busy right now but, I personally want to do a Nordic and GB tour. I have been to Belgium and Switzerland and loved it.
Also, some of the HGTV International House Hunter shows have showcased interracial couples with black women.
I definitely have seen this in my own family and it is obviously going to be the same in dating or marrying someone with privilege. In many ways, it is just one of the things we shrug and accept since it is not going to change. On the other hand, it is something I don't always feel completely settled about since that essentially leaves you vulnerable if you don't have your privileged "shield of protection".
I don't deal with as much when it comes to being targeted for discriminatory treatment. I do see the difference with having bio family/siblings that looks white or non black as opposed to those that are more obviously considered black.
There has never been a comfort level in the idea of me exercising some genetic privilege. On the other hand, with the lack of protections in this society for American black women, I do realize the value of having privilege;borrowed or not. I do realize the benefit for black women to have access to her husbands privilege that extends to his her and/or children.

I have just heard bits and pieces about this but, its like prophecy come true. The attacks on black women like this is emotional warfare. Put fear and sme where there is peace, hope and joy. Why? Because we are moving on in all areas of life. The moment we wake upis one day closer to the end for some of these entertainers. BW fund, support and hold up the broken fragments of the black community they built their empires from. If BW and our children are not supporting them, who will? Educated women,
Swirling women, traveling women, progressive women...we are a threat to their livelihood. Want to talk slave talk? I bet. Its hard for slave owners to imagine being without control and power. BW are in slavery and bondage but it is to the system of blackistan, not white men. To shame and ridicule us so openly is a good sign. They see us leaving. Their greatest fears are our freedom and hope. Black women living in peace and joy won't

Thank you MILV!
Paper? people have never lived in a time where women and children found themselves homeless and hungry before there was laws to protect them. Spoken by those with the privilege of a welfare system safety net. Those that never saw true poverty may say that. Those that have never seen it modeled and tested to protect. Those that saw marriage through chilhood pains wont see the benefit. People who have no thoughts of the inheritance and legacy concept.

I agree...black women have such a fear about fetishes that there is a loss of the benefit of being sexy, gorgeous and different to the men that find her attractive.
I had always seen exotic as positive. Maybe I am a bad girl or maybe I saw the label put on things valued. I also tend to think that people are plain when they use the term as a negative.
I had someone say that about my name and then commented about my sisters name being so. It is a name given by generations on my Scottish side and is as Euro foreign as it can get and is a darn title. Yet, it didn't seem like a compliment the way it was said but, I also considered the source to be plain and not just in that area. Please...please men....don't say that on a first date to a black woman unless it is with a wink or a smile.
Context and personal experience is so ingrained that I don't usually even give second thoughts to what someone else sees something as.

Why they think we are off limits???? No...why they think we may be cray cray!
Well...to be honest...I am a bit so but, not on this order. Gah.....the struggle!
7 months, 1 week ago on This is one of the Reasons So Many White Guys Think Black Women are Off Limits.
Wow....this really sounds so deranged. The way people carry on like this, you wonder how sane they are for going so deep. As if men of other nationalities, other than black, are harboring some antiquated experiences from their ancestors. Seems BP are the ones carrying on the mystical, evil, sorcery, bewitching tales while everyone, including black men, have moved on. Those sordid tales are reserved only for black women/white men pairings while conveniently leaving out the partnering of black men with non black women. The sad thing is how many black women are so wrapped up in themselves and the tales, are even in therapy to convince them not to lock themselves away from life.
Everyone else is living life abundantly. I see them out everywhere every weekend. Last weekend...for miles and two beaches, I rode my bike and saw zero black women on the path or sitting in the front of a vacation rental with friends and family. What I saw is the rest of life's participants that were out vacationing with husbands, riding bike paths with boyfriends and standing in ice cream lines hugged up. I see them because I am out there.....living in the present. I can't understand who would want to go in a tower and lock themselves away...becoming their own jailor. Even black men have just about abandoned that post unless they want to troll while their non black mate is busy doing other things.
@Christelyn Chantelle is another brand I used to sell on Ebay. I actually had to buy brand new sizes and had nearly new ones in all colors so, I am starting over. Now I am motivated! Shame on you!

@Christelyn OMGGGGG!!!!! This is sooooo pretty!
@Jamila @Christelyn @mzsunshine Check on ebay. You can get better than VS at or less than VS on there. I used to sell bras...Wacoal and LeMystere and a few other brands here and there on Ebay. They can be had for really reasonable prices.
Once it starts, you never can go back! I have a collection that started with one La Perla that I found at an amazing price. Then a trip to a lingerie section in a glorious department store in France. I never returned from the dark side!
It can break the bank but, the unseens make you feel oh so pretty and girly!
