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.
Last year, the cereal brand Cheerios released a commercial that featured an interracial couple and their biracial daughter. The racist backlash against seeing a black man with a white woman was so severe that Cheerios had to disable comments on its YouTube account. During the Super Bowl this year, the brand double-downed on its efforts to be reflective of a diverse nation and released a second commercial featuring the same family. In the new ad, the mother is pregnant with the couple’s second child. This commercial was marked with far less backlash.
