Talk about apples not falling far from the tree. Well, these two parents, Bradley and Wendy Knudson refused to put up with their lovely daughter being bullied. They did not just offer lip service and throw their hands up in helplessness and disgust. The Knudson’s took action. When attempts to communicate were not effective, Brad took to Youtube and called the bully family out. Let’s see how the bullies deal with the public backlash and being outed for their shameful and despicable behavior. Some of us will have to deal with bullies relating to our children regardless of the racial aspect. Bullies are mean – period!
Some states allow first cousins to marry. Some of those states allow it with restrictions and some have none. A Spanish speaking couple I knew had asked me to help them learn what they needed for a civil ceremony in Denver back in the 1980s. So I checked into the process for them and found out all this other information about marriage laws in Colorado. I always found it funny about the cousins getting married and just tucked it away in the back of my mind.
Let’s face it, many of us never consider obtaining and education abroad. Some of us just never think about it. If you have never been exposed to the possibility it is no wonder that you may never know that there is a world of options available to you. But for those some the cost could be a deterrent to those who do know about universities overseas. I found a Facebook Fafsa International Universities page that doesn’t update much but has good information.
A friend in one of my Facebook groups recently asked members what kind of music was played at our weddings. I had not thought much about it in nineteen years but it was refreshing to think about it. We did not have Youtube in 1995 so it was serendipitous to find all the tunes online.
It was love at first sight when Ada 26, saw Yan Yang 58, an artist from China visiting her home town of Freetown, Sierra Leone. Ada was so sure that Yan, significantly older was the love of her life, that within one month they were married and moved to China. Did she have any idea that her wedding would rival that of a Chinese empress? Probably not. But that is what she got.
Brennan Shares: I’m a happily married man and a recent father. My wife’s name is Ivy, a half-Panamanian and half-Mexican young woman. Her Panamanian mother has been remarried to a Caucasian man for nearly 20 years. So her parents were not remotely concerned about their daughter dating a white man.
Both Fawn Stone and Lakesha Yvette Walker were featured as singles on Interracial Marriage and Family, formerly Swirling and Marriage. I have not been single for quite some time but as a dating and life coach understand that it is quite hard out there for women everywhere to find love. Throw in beautiful, successful and accomplished black women, the odds rise even higher. I had lunch with Fawn and Lakesha in the summer and am still blown over in amazement as to why these young, sexy, gorgeous women at their age and in their respective professions were still single. I encouraged them, strategized and discussed a game plan for each. That game plan included swirling for these smart, hot, gorgeous women. Half the battle is won as they are very much open to interracial relationships. Neither Fawn nor Lakesha have limited themselves to dating black men only, but are inclusive of love in whatever skin shade they find it. That is a very good thing!
Stories like this are so inspiring and leaves one with such hope for our future. But it also makes me want to go back in time and punch some folks in the nose. Joan Williams will finally take her place atop a float in the Pasadena Tournament of Roses on New Year’s Day 2015. I am thrilled that Mrs. Williams is alive to receive this honor. Here’s to good things coming full circle.

Your customers are hugely important. And your key employees. As well as the industry you’ve chosen, politics, macroeconomics, and education.
Super shout out to all nurses. Sometimes your job can be thankless but know that the majority of folks appreciate, love and honor you. All CNAs, LPN, RNs, APRNs, NPs, CRNAs and CNSs have attended to millions with the utmost patience and care and you deserve the biggest shout out for that. I came across some information while looking up some things for my friend who was completing her BSN. Evidently, the value of post graduate education in nursing was deemed doctorate level work.

One Drop Rule? No Thanks! In our race obsessed country, I have recently noticed more and more discussions about that infamous One Drop Rule for whatever reason on the various blogs. Passing is still quite relevant evidently and some of the now obsolete terms that accompanied certain percentages of Negro blood. lol. I still say let people call themselves what they want to be called regardless of appearance. Back in the day, Hollywood’s famous Bennett sisters had no use for ‘one drop’ or anything that came with it. They successfully ignored their African roots.

Exceprted from Love is (colour) blind: A look at interracial relationships in 2013 February 13, 2013 by infinitom
It was 1983. Deborah Wallace, a second-generation Canadian of Scottish descent, had fallen in love with Stephen Hinds, a black man from Guyana. When Hinds walked into the insurance company Wallace worked for, it was love at first sight.
Right from the start of period, competition and numerous civilizations have joined into significant and effective associations. Despite the fact that some have now been fulfilled with uncertainty and numerous resistance, there has been an infusion of interracial interactions with every competition and tradition. What’s most significant may be the love each connection stocks. Are interracial interactions a problem in the culture of today’s? Whenever you visit a handful of another competition together in the culture of today’s, what’s your thought?
Farhia and Jason were astounded that their beautiful wedding photographs went viral on the Internet. The pics of this chic and hip urban couple are on many many Blasian and interracial couples Tumblr site as well as bridal and wedding websites. I even covered them here on BBW. Amal and Nada, the fab female photographers who make up Black Earth Studios deserve an award for The Koyama Wedding Shoot. These photogragphs are absolutely beautiful. I did not want to just piece together facts and display photos, I wanted an interview. So now I am sharing a little of Farhia and Jason’s story with you. Farhia is very open minded and had no inhibitions dating or marrying interracially in the least bit.
