Your parents sound like mine only my mom grew up in a Christian household. My dad got saved being with my mom but his level of commitment is not nearly what hers is. Their relationship has never been ideal in my lifetime. My parents are two people who should never have gotten married. I love my parents and I hope the best for them but I am determined not to have an unequally yoked marriage like they have. I have to marry someone who shares my faith and who is preferably as committed or more so than I am.

I know that most black churches are a "patriarchy". However I happen to attend a black church where a black woman is the head pastor and we have several women ministers as well. It is a gem that is not perfect because no church is but I'm glad to have found it. :-)

That's what I suspected. Second generation and beyond tend to be more open-minded than the newbies. I would like to start shopping at asian markets too. You can only find so much on the "international aisle" at Kroger. Lol. I wish we had a H Mart. :-( I'd be all up in there! We have a few Asian local markets though mostly NOT on my side of town though, booooo. I'm not surprised about the underlying prejudiced feelings of your white friends or many southern white people in general. I know that they are not all card carrying members of the kkk but........ You understand if you're not apart of their klan.

Do the Asians in Atlanta seem to be more recent immigrants therefore less inclined to interact with non Asians? I know the one's straight from the motherland will probably be more standoffish and sometimes prejudiced towards other people of color especially black people. Also older Asians can be notorious with their racial prejudice and this may affect their children's choice in mate. Maybe the Asians back home in DC are more acculturated into the mainstream culture. I do know that the DC AMBW meetup group was/is pretty popular so maybe they are just more open-minded there. Plus you live in the dirty south and maybe they get discriminated against alot by white people and other groups and it makes them standoffish. I'm just speculating but these things may have something to do with it.

I visit a number of AMBW groups from time to time and they have meetups all the time. Especially in Cali where you live, New York, DC there even used to be one in my state. Maybe you should try to get in contact with some of the sisters and Asian men who set these meetups. They may be able to give you the lowdown on how to set up these events. If meetups for AMBW groups can be set up and successful then certainly WM/BW can be set up since it's much more common.

Jimmy Uso is pretty hot. A little too jealous for my taste but he definitely loves him some Trinity. Polynesian men can be super foine! You're right that Trinity would probably be passed on or at least not been wifed up by a black man. She is "regular black" and therefore not exotic enough for most black men to consider wifey material. I'm always happy to see black women get married to men who really love them. :-)

That annoyed me too. I was like "why they just gotta be white? " People often seem to think interracial relationships have to always include a white person.

 I feel the same as you and Christelyn. I also have the apple shaoe. No Butt At All. SMH. I used to tell myself I had an hourglass figure but I don't. I have broad shoulders too. A bountiful bosom I have so at least my shape is not totally manly looking. lol.  But I would be lying if I said that I was never insecure about my lack of curves. I guess we can't all be like Beyonce. ( shrugs shoulders.)
