@girl1015 @Blanc2 Precisely. He sounds neurotic, or at least neurotic about the fact that she's black. I say either go for it or STFU.

Thicke is a plaigiarist, a privileged talentless yob, a disgusting pig, and by all accounts an unapologetic philanderer, She's lucky to be done with him.

All this talk of "interracial" or "intercultural" relationships, but those of us in them know that the biggest "race" difference in any relationship is the difference between the male race and the female race.

Any parent will tell you that it is a blessing for the family if the family can figure out a way to enable the mother to stay home full time with the kids while they're young. Parents know that nature trumps nurture and that, for young kids, nothing can substitute for a mother's love.

LOL. I remember this thought process when I was with my first black GF, back in college. After that first night, when I awoke in her room and saw the photo of the ex on the dresser and it occurred to me that prior guys, at least one, was/were black. Then there she was wanting some more and I reckoned that as long as she was wanting what I was serving up it was all good with me.
And that is pretty much always the calculus that men should follow. Mostly, there will have been men before you. If you wonder how you compare to them, you'll drive yourself crazy. If your woman tells you that she loves your body, and that the things you do to her in bed take her places she's never been, you silently thank the guys who came before you for being bad lovers.

Why not also eliminate gender descriptions. After all, most "strong arm" type crimes are committed by men, and I'm sure that there have been a large number of innocent men who have been stopped, detained, and/or questioned simply because they resembled a description given by a victim.
Of course I'm being facetious, but to illustrate the point.

The woman in the picture, with the locks and the red, she's stunning.

Exactly what I've been saying all along. The enemy isn't carbs, it's processed carbs. The reason "no carb" or "low carb" (such as Paleo) diets work for many is that the carbs consumed by most Americans are highly processed. Eliminating these from the diet is always a good thing. Few Americans even understand a dietary palette that includes unprocessed carbs.
For a start, try adding some tabouleh salad to the menu -- whole wheat grains, stone ground and cooked pilaf style, with herbs and veggies, seasoned more with vinegar/lemon juice (acid) than with salt. A part of the Mediterranean diet, high in healthy carbs, low in fat, very nutritious. Make the same with quinoa for a variant.
Try cooking a hot cereal that is half steel cut oat and half steel cut wheat berries.
Buy a grain mill (relatively inexpensive) and sacks of whole grain kamut or spelt, and use that to grind your own fresh whole grain flour for making bread at home. If you have the ability to sustain a sourdough culture, these whole grain flours work marvellously with this starter for breads, pancakes, etc.

Humans in the paleolithic era lived to about age 30-35. Birth, early life reproduction, death. Their diet worked for that short life span.
The health issues that face humans who live to the better part of 100 are profoundly different, mainly focusing around cardiovascular issues such as BP, cholesterol, etc. The Paleo diet, as touted by the Paleo folks, gets big negatives in this area.
I believe that your success with this program is an example of the adage that "proximity is not necessarily causation". What I mean by that is that a diet that focuses mainly on fruits and vegetables is going to be healthy no matter what the balance is comprised of. Further, you have also been focused on watching overall caloric intake. Thus, your success isn't because of Paleo, it's because of the plant-based, limited caloric nature of your diet.
As I've stated before, carbs are not the enemy. Processed and refined carbs are the enemy. In the US, the vast majority of carb-rich foods are made using highly processed and refined carbs. Very unhealthy. However, every organized society that has found a sustainable nutritional balance for a life where life expectancy is over 60 uses a carb-based diet, for the simple reason that it is sustainable.

Gabby has consitently made bad life choices, and not just in men. From what one sees in the media, at least, she comes off as a vacuous party girl who is pissing her life away, living off the bling that her good looks can reel in. I doubt she brings much more gravitas to the marriage than Dwayne Wade. She's aging well, but at some point age will make that lifestyle difficult to sustain, at whcih time she'll realize it's too late.

@onmywayup @Blanc2 Thanks. I probably should watch the show, but I actually almost never watch television, at all. 60+ hour per week job, a daughter in travel soccer and a son who plays music all over the place. No time for TV.

Okay, I've listened 1,000 times but I still don't know what word she utters at 1:22-1:24 and of course because of my OCD this is driving me nuts. "It's because you have _______ fantasies." What is "______"? I get the gist of it. I want to know the actual word she says.
By the way, having not seen "Scandal", I don't know what she says about "Scandal".
She's insanley cute. If I was 20-something I'd be all over that.
I can identify with 100% of the points in the video. I'm sure I faced every single one of those issues back in the day (1981 or so) when I had my first black girlfriend. WM/BW relationship were quite rare back then. We faced some overt racism too, such as "n-word lover" scrawled on my door.
I recall the moment of realization, just before sex for the first time in her room, with the pictures of an ex boyfriend (a black guy) in a frame on her dresser, that guys before me were likely mostly or all black. A moment of intimidation because of my own insecurity and the racist mythology around black men and their sexuality, but I got over it pretty much as soon as I saw her nekkid. "If she's happy with what I'm serving up, I reckon I'll just go with that."
I have also faced the question from other WM "what's it like with a black girl?" Uh, aside from the fact that she's female, meaning irrational and unreasonable and maddeningly impossible to understand? Really, the problems with interracial relationships come from the fact that the two races -- the male race and the female race -- are fundamentally incompatible.
@Conor Flannery @Blanc2 By the way, sister-in-law is now married to a white dude. And she eats pork. But not gluten.
