As I am always researching matters pertaining interracial families, I came across a post on The Salt Collective written by Liz Lin entitled. How Do You Raise A Multiracial Child?. As woman of Chinese descent, Lin’s experience differs from many of ours. But as a mother, it is not so different. We all want the best for our children. We want them to work hard, thrive and be successful.
Swirl Date and Marry has noticed that more black women are taking the chance at online dating. Some give up, some hang in there and actually find their future husbands. You can meet a mate almost anywhere like at the supermarket, library or bookstore, coffee shop, at a bar, or online. Although online dating is just one of many ways to meet other singles, it is one of the easiest ways to get yourself out there. There is still a stigma associated with online dating but that is fading fast due to the success of many couples who met online. Most eventually marry and many even have families and are happy.
How to Land (And Keep) A Man
When it comes to stereotypes, women were always made to play the role of the damsel in distress, and were always told to wait for the right man to come and sweep her off her feet. Today, however, things are slowly changing and it has become accessible to proactively search for someone. Here are some things you can try to finally meet and land that man, without acting like a psycho-stalker.
Are You on Welfare? Don’t be Ashamed to Admit it. Legal mediation consultant and practitioner Joan Amanfoh, host of The Awareness Show shares a recent, shocking experience. A single mother of two came to my office yesterday crying that her case manager cut off her benefits. Which means the monthly monetary assistance the government was giving to her to pay rent and medication had been stopped. I was not surprised because of the recent increase in these kind of cases.
Another precious baby is gone thanks to an abusive, pedophile father named Robert Davidson and negligent mother Lorena Thompson. Ten week old baby Aleah Thompson suffered so much during her little time on this Earth. A broken collar-bone and 34 rib fractures in various stages of healing? Really??? Poor baby. I am sick of reading or seeing these cases in the news. Some women would rather keep a man in their lives than protect their child or children. At 22 years old, maybe Lorena Thompson was a bit immature but I have seen little girls who would go from zero to sixty if anyone dare tried to touch or hurt their baby dolls. What do they know that this mother does not? Read the heart breaking story.
We are so pleased to hear that IMF friend Millie H.met her husband online. They had actually met before, lost contact and reconnected. Once they realized they had met before, they were dating and started a relationship. Over about a year and a half, Millie and her hubby became a couple, engaged and the rest is history as they say. Millie is a Jamaican native and where else could she marry the love of her life but on the tropical island paradise?

Enough! Prince Harry Says Leave New Love Meghan Markle Alone! I am absolutely thrilled to see that Prince Harry has found love across the pond with gorgeous American actress Meghan Markle. Prince Harry is a stand up guy it seems as he has acknowledged their relationship and spoken out against the racist and sexist hate against his new love. Everyone does have a right to their opinions, but at the end of the day the only opinions that matter belong to the two love birds.
Who knew that discussions and literature about zombies could spark a romance? Well that is what happened in the case of Allison and Amir, an absolutely lovely couple . I found their story on MunaLuchi Bride.
Relationship quirks black women married to white men will understand on its own may give one reason to reflect. Marriage is already a tough game, and interracial relationships have their own share of drama making it even trickier to figure out. In this modern-day and age, color preference in relationships should not be an issue anymore. Unfortunately, that is not the case. There are still a few struggles that black women married to white men face, and here are some of them:
I was browsing through blog posts and articles recently and I came across a question that said, “Help! My daughter is marrying a black man! What should I do?” Reading and re-reading the question out loud in my head, it surprises me how there are still these bigoted stereotypes like that in this day and age. It seemed like a really big crisis for that woman, almost comparable to asking a question such as “my daughter is marrying a drug addict, what should I do?”
This little gem was found on Facebook from the page belonging to Jessica Carter of Alabama. She works at Aldi , a discount grocery store chain, and shares stories of the Day’s events at the store. I am happily sharing such a touching scene which is especially because it is the South. It is too cute!
Because of my History of Horror and Sci Fi film class back at the University of Alaska Anchorage in 1991, I did some digging into Edgar Rice Burroughs and what I found was not very good. Yes he became a prolific Sci Fi writer, but his stories were rooted in some of the most racist mindset I have ever seen. I put it all in context considering the racial climate of the time but he does not get a pass.
Nigeria, Ghana and a few other African countries are excluded from many online dating sites because of the scams and schemes coming out of those countries, but those who persevere can find love. Micky and Faith were able to find love as many are doing despite the negativity from the various online sites. I say hang in there and keep going. We can see it pays off for many!
I supported the great American Veteran 95-year-old Ophelia Outley who served her country, raised children and grandchildren and from what I can tell led a wonderful life. That was until some thug decided to break into her home, beat and rape her. This woman witnessed a country change before her very eyes from Segregation and Jim Crow to a black man in the White House and probably had a million stories to share with her children and the world.
International adoption can be wonderful. Most international adoptions are not as simple as deciding to go to Africa or China or Guatemala to get a baby. Some governments have made it difficult to adopt from their countries. But most loving couples are willing to go through the process to offer love and a home to an orphaned child. Paul and Kara Scoville have done just that.
