For a long time, online dating carried a stigma which made many people embarrassed to say they met their significant other online. Have a swipe through Tinder profiles and you will see many people suggesting, “We’ll say we met at the movies” – anywhere else but on Tinder, POF, Facebook, Twitter, or any of the other places people have begun relationships online.
I have been raised in a very open-minded family. My mother, has always been exceptional. Even during the 60’s when the Civil Rights fight was raging, many kids of color would not help the Caucasian kids learn about their culture. Our school was now integrated school and the questions and interest was sincere. My mom, took a stand and bridged the gap.
My name is Selena G. About 20 years ago, I had a white boyfriend named Matt Z. We loved each other very much and I could see us married. My parents and brother did not like him from the start and always gave me a hard time about him. I should not have been surprised because in my home there wasalways hatred of white people.
Walking down the aisle, between my two mothers – Rose, the woman who’d given birth to me, and Renee Loux who’d adopted me, I couldn’t have been happier. My identical twin sister Teyolla, Tee for short, and I had talked about this day from as early as I could remember. My only sadness was that Tee, 20, couldn’t watch me get married, because she was waiting outside the door, preparing to get hitched herself.
Outrageous what Tyron Smith’s family expected of him financially according to ESPN.com. There is absolutely nothing wrong with helping your mother or family out if you make it big in any career; but Smiths’ family felt extremely entitled. They expected him to care for their needs and wants and became greedy. Tyon Smith did the best thing by cutting off his family so he and any future family he has could have a life, retirement savings and live well. He doesn’t owe his family a thing. Good for you Tyron Smith. I applaud you for your courage and your efforts to show other up and coming ball players (and other parvenus) how to stop the money trains.

My name is Kristi Thompson, I started dating my husband Terrell on October 22, 2004 — our senior year of high school. But I had a crush on him since the 6th grade. I knew it would be a problem with my parents but I did not think it would be as big of a problem as it turned out to be.
Antigua is quite the place to have a wedding!
If you are going to be a superstar in the spotlight, you have to take the bad with the good. Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea has had her share of bullying on social media sites like Twitter. A few searches will reveal beefs with Azealia Banks, Snoop Dogg, Q-Tip and even Papa Johns Pizza.
Eddie Murphy and Paige Butcher
I have to give it to Eddie Murphy for his refusal to depict Bill Cosby in sketch comedy on the Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary special.
Thanks to Raynika for sharing her romance story with Interracial Marriage and Family. Brandon is truly my soul mate. His love, ability to accept me for me and his willingness to help me to grow as a person is the greatest feeling in the world. He asked me to be his last girlfriend ever and I happily said yes!
The beautiful Dorothy Dandridge, was legendary. She was a multitalented woman way ahead of her time. Dorothy’s mother Ruby and her lover Geneva Williams were abusive and taught Dorothy nothing about vetting good, quality men. Tragically almost every man in Dorothy’s romantic life left her heartbroken and broken.
By Ashlyn Sully of the Ashlyn Sully Blog. I work as a waitress. Last night I had a table of about 6 extremely drunk guys come in. Although they were not my table, every time I would walk by them to fill someone’s drink (They were sitting in a table right next to our pop machine) they would cat call me. I started out by ignoring it, why fuel the fire, right? However, when one of them blurted out that I am a “fine piece of ass” my patience was wearing thin. I turned around, smiled, and stated “Yeah, my boyfriend thinks so too.”
In all honesty, looking back I should have just remained silent like I had been doing. But hindsight is always 20/20. The guys then all started laughing and saying that they were just trying to “compliment me” and that I didn’t have to be “such a bitch about things” *This is when I started getting angry and probably should have walked away, but sometimes I have a smart mouth.*
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!
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.
