Regina King encourages black women to date outside their race. This is a blast from the past (2010) but just as relevant as if spoken this afternoon. Black women are the last to date out for a number of reasons. One is a misplace loyalty to black men. One’s preference is one’s preference. But if a single woman wants marriage and family, it is only logical that she opens up her dating pools to include all races of men thereby increasing her chances of finding a good friend, husband and father — of course after extreme vetting him to determine his worthiness. After all we are talking about a life partner and possible father to your future children. Although she faced some backlash for her opinion, what Regina Kings says here is on point.
Scandinavia – Find Your Love In The Faroe Islands is quite the challenge these days. Are you up for a visit to the Faroe Islands? I may be. . I was interviewed by Anna Poulsen of KVF, Faroese media two weeks ago. I should have the link but the interview is in Faroese so I doubt most would understand anyway. I am trying for a project later this year in Iceland and the Faroe Islands. I would like to take a few ladies who have expressed interest in finding love in the Faroes for a visit to see what we can see (and who we can see)
Technically, Indians are Asian too. So this Beautiful Asian – Indian wedding of Mr. Teh and Miss Anbalagi and these unions are nothing new. In fact they are quite common all over the globe. I met one such couple at my children’s pediatrician’s office. The man was from India and his wife was Chinese. We had newborns and enjoyed watching the children grow into toddlers and preschoolers. I loved looking at these fabulous photos of JyTeh and Anbalagi.
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.

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.

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!

Relational aggression is a relatively new term usually related to bullying. These are a few terms I have coined describing relational aggression when it comes to black women in interracial relationships. Because of the lasting psychological effects this subtle and covert manipulations can have on the uninformed, the These types should be avoided whenever possible. But if avoidance is not possible, learn how to deal with them and keep it moving without skipping a beat.
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.
I am saddened to see the amount of vitriol Derek Luke recently received about his Latina wife Sophia after posting their photo on Instagram. They were high school sweethearts and have been married for 17 years. That is quite an accomplishment and they are to be congratulated.
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.
