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!
60 years is so long to wait but in this case late is definitely better than never. 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.
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.
I’ve said it numerous times. And I didn’t think it was possible. It certainly isn’t possible with that attitude. But here’s an interesting modern statistic: 1 in 5 relationships start online.
According to research recently published in the journal “Psychological Science in the Public Interest,” 20% of all relationships begin on the internet. Apparently, the stigmas once attached to dating online have disappeared and been replaced with a real appreciation for the effectiveness of finding love digitally. No longer is internet dating an escape for the desperate, the lonely and the dirt-bags of the world. These days single people all over the world find each other in that vast digital environment of 1s and 0s.
Could You Live On An Island For Love? Woman Shortage In The Faroe Islands according to recent reports, women seem to be disappearing from the Faroe Islands, an island group and archipelago set between Norway and Iceland (and about 200 miles from Scotland). Young women leave the Faroes to pursue their education or work elsewhere and they are not coming back. Their departure has resulted in a shortage of women on the Faroe Islands. They have such a shortage of women, that some of the men have taken to importing women from the Philippines and Thailand to marry and increase the population. Living on these beautiful but isolated islands is not for the faint or weary of heart. The climate is windy and colder but not all the time.
Want to break some ice in Iceland? As I am always encouraging black women to explore the world outside the United States, I finally get to discuss Iceland, first in a series about Scandinavia. Before you envision a permanent frozen tundra, be aware that the temperature in Iceland is closer to that of the US Atlantic Seaboard. Anyone from Maine to Virginia should be used to the winter weather and elements experienced with cold. Iceland gets all four seasons. And there is a warm current from the Gulf Stream so you are actually able to withstand the temperatures. There is a lot of darkness in the winter, but midnight sun brings light in the summer for long days.
I first met Paula when I came across her post on Weddingbee.com talking about she and Mr. B., her hubby moving to his country, Macedonia. I introduced myself and the next thing you know we were friends on Facebook. That was 2013. I have gotten to know Paula over the past year through our posts and pictures. As a black American woman married, living and working in Eastern Europe, Paula’s story is especially fascinating. She is holding it down for the sisters over there and doing a fantastic job of it I might add.
I came across a fab blog by a woman named Grace Buchele Mineta. She gives the good, bad and ugly of Asian Male white female relationships as she sees it. I found her post very refreshing. It looks like she has loads of fun with her Japanese husband. Read her story…
Excerpted from The Learning Community.
The size of the typical American family has gone down significantly in the last two centuries. In 1800, the average number of children was 7, in 1900 it was 3.5. With the widespread use of contraception, today the average number of children per family is about 2. However, despite averages, family sizes vary widely and some couples have a large family.
My husband is great for so many reasons. But tonight, it’s because his hands are in my fro! It feels like the good ‘ol days when I’d spend hours in front of the television as my sister would braid extensions into my hair. Oh, the nostalgia!
I recently learned about Semester At Sea from my dear friend and mentor Madame Angela Shaw of France. She reported about an SAS presentation in Hungary. I became an information broker for a reason. If we don’t know about the opportunities available out there, then we lose out on possible life changing experiences. This information is for everyone, but minorities in particular need to be encouraged to participate in international programs that add to life experience and possibly make them more competitive in the various global arenas. I am so pleased we have more exposure to information just at our fingertips, but somehow that is still not enough.
If you grew up in the 90’s like me, you may know of the twin actresses Tia and Tamera Mowry. Recently the twins sat down with Oprah Winfrey to discuss their lives in one of Oprah’s “Where are they now?” segments. The twins, born into a multiracial family with a black mother and white father, discussed what it is like to be married to their own husbands amongst other topics. The interview took a tide for the worst as they began to detail the response to their marriages. You see, Tia married a black man while her sister, Tamera married a white man.
