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!
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.
Blasian is a term associated with a person mixed with black and Asian background. It also means a married couple or romantic relationship made up a person with a black or African and Asian. Blasian is more commonly known as Afro-Asian.
I have always admired African women who do not seem to have an issue marrying interracially. I have learned that African women sometimes get a bad reputation for any number of reasons and it seems unfair. But that does not stop them from finding love across racial lines. I also love to see when a white African man finds love with a black African woman like Namibian Sybre found his Charity from Botswana. Considering the fact that Apartheid was not so long ago in the entire region, their union speaks volumes.
It was love at first sight when Ada 23, 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.
