I saw Farhia and Jason’s beautiful wedding of April 11, 2013 in pictures. Many have seen this couple’s fab photos as they are in various blogs and Pinterest boards. I fell in love these pics and went directly to the outstanding photographer ‘s website and of course I wanted an interview. They are Canadian — Farhia is Somali and Jason is Japanese. This is one of the most beautiful Blasian couples I have ever seen.
From Uganda to Serbia, Rose Bugarčić’s Incredible Journey… In 2011 Rosa Josiah Mirembe Abbott Bugarčić or simply Rose, became the first black woman to be appointed to the Serbian government, specifically the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Originally from Uganda, is married to Serbian Zivko Bugarčić and they live with their 3 children in Belgrade. Minister Ivica Dacic officially charged Rose with the challenge to resolve issues mainly because of her expertise in European integration. She felt the need to do her part and contribute to Serbia’s application to the European Union.
I have lived in some beautiful cities most of which were great swirling cities within the US and visited several outside of our borders. I would like to share a few based on my personal experience as part of a swirl marriage. I have seen swirling black women from New York City, to Indianapolis, Indiana all the way to North Pole, Alaska. Here in Los Angeles, I see all kinds of swirls. I have seen swirling sisters of all skin tones, shapes and sizes happily in love white, Latino, Asian and other men of various nationalities (all races). I ain’t mad at ’em.
In a perfect world, interracial marriages and relationships would be happily accepted. Since we are not in a perfect world (far from it) some people have to deal with unaccepting in-laws, siblings and people who they thought were friends. How does his family feel about your relationship to date, court, love or marry a black woman? We always hear about how white (and other non black) families are reluctant to accept a black daughter in law but what about black families? Was your family accepting of your choice to marry a non black male? I believe that black people tend to me more accepting but…

“Obviously, he will capture some attention because he is Asian-American, a Harvard grad, accomplished, and married to a black woman.”
* I’m surprised whenever I see Harvard grads who get caught up in libertarianism, when they could take the careful approach by being a Republican or Democrat, while saying they have libertarian beliefs.
* Yes, I know some Libertarians are sure he will win. I shouldn’t say he won’t–I never expected that Barack Obama would be president of the United States, he seemed to be a nice-talking empty suit.
Meet Captain Nenh and Mrs. Ladi Trenh. I came by their wedding video uploaded by Ladi’s cousin Miguel Asua of Asua Light LLC. So, I set out on a search to find this couple. Miguel was nice enough to put me in touch with this beautiful bride. I contacted Ladi and she was so pleasant. Of course she agreed to an interview. What has to be noted is that Ladi is a natural beauty who wears little to no make up and is comfortable as she is. Her husband Nenh is obviously very much in love with the beautiful woman Ladi is inside and out. Ladi demonstrates that we can come as we are and attract, quality, marriage minded men who will love, honor, and protect us as well as provide for our families. Ladi was so forthcoming in sharing her story and pictures of her beautiful little family. She leads a simple, yet inspiring life as wife and mother. Thanks Ladi!
When I came across this couple I was actually drawn into the photo by the intense and deep love Danish Andreas Anderskou and South African Zani Suttle have for one another. Although they actually live in New York city, the Webersburg Wine Estate in Stellenbosch (Western Cape) South Africa was quite the perfect venue for this handsome and lovely couple to exchange their vows. Wow! Photographs by Christopher Munton Photography.
OMGoodness, a friend in the UK sent me this article posted on Essence.com. I could not stop reading. A black woman seeking advice wrote in to Abiola Abrams’ Intimacy Intervention column. Seems the writer’s wonderful, white husband likes to use racial slurs during sex. “Oh baby, nigger bitch, oh baby.” Come again? What the what??? I liked Abrams’ answer to the sad advice seeker and if she were real, I would hope she took the advice. I felt little sympathy for this sister as she did not know how to vet. Any woman who would put up with such from any man has some esteem and other issues. I don’t want to go a rant but, why anyone would allow and actually like this kind of behavior, treatment or talk is beyond me. That is the excuse the carefully crafted, deep seated racist author gave the writer Where is the self respect? I when I read this post, I couldn’t help but picture Django Chained.
This ad circulated from an organization called Chicks In Crisis on Facebook last week and must have given all the IR couples that saw it something to think about. It was looking for an interracial (biracial black/white) family for biracial twin girls soon to be born. I definitely considered if there was anyway for my husband and I to respond but we didn’t qualify for many reasons one of which was the family had to already have been home study approved. The response appeared to be overwhelming as there are obviously many loving couples ready to provide a happy home for a baby. The good news is that there are four families being considered and I am sure any one of them would be great parents and trust that all will work out well.
White DBRs Are In Great Supply
Black women who advocate for other black women to expand their dating pools to include all races are often accused of bashing black men; as some are quick to apply the DBR (damaged beyond repair) label to them. No one claims that all black men are dbrs. That would be unfair as there are some great black men out there. On the other hand, if the shoe fits……
I know that I installed the word “VET” into my vocabulary as I found myself coaching more and more women on finding suitable mates. What if someone does all the right things, asks all the right questions and still ends up with a shyster? Well, Joy Richardson, a dear friend thought she married the man of her dreams and in just two weeks it started unraveling. I would venture to say that it started before that. We are blessed with a God given instinct and anything and I do mean ANYTHING that gives us reason to pause, or question a potential mate is sometimes the only sign or red flag you will get.
When I first introduced you all to Lissette Gonzalez five years ago, her interview got the most responses ever. People were drawn to Lissette’s (Lisy or Lady Elle) outgoing, loving and crazy personality and the heart binding super love she and her husband share with each other.
Anta Majigeen Ndiaye or Anna Madgigine Jai Kingsley was not always the free Senegalese woman who eventually became a plantation and slave owner. At 18 years old, her owner Zephaniah Kingsley, one of the most powerful men in Florida freed the 18 year-old woman mother of his 3 children and married her. As Florida was under Spanish colonial rule where manumission laws were more liberal than American. Her husband saw slavery as a temporary condition related to economics more than race. Anna learned to operate the plantations as effective as Zephaniah. As a free woman, she petitioned the Spanish government and was granted land across from her husband’s plantations in what is now Jacksonville, Florida.
Albert and Lucy Parsons
Albert (1858-1887) and Lucy Parsons (1853-1942 were from Texas where Lucy Eldine Gonzalez Parsons was born into slavery. She met Albert and they married. They moved to Chicago due to threats from the KKK during Reconstruction. Albert was a former Confederate soldier who later fought on behalf of former slaves’ rights. Albert & Lucy were extreme radical anarchists.
Not only was Centralia, Illinois native Marcella (Marcy) Ng the first black woman military pilot (Army) in 1979; but she and husband Dennis were also Blasian trailblazers. Mrs. Ng shared with me that she found all the swirling and blasian terms interesting because she and her husband have been together 33 plus years.
Just look how she looks at him so adorably.

This is the second and third stories of former slaves who moved to and married interracially in Montana. Mattie Bell Castner is the called “The Mother of Belt, Montana.” My family and I had the opportunity to drive through the area in 2011. It felt good to be close enough to touch history, but most of us could experience the same sentiments by just going outside or a few miles away as the contributions of our ancestors surround us, but I digress.
Watch their video and you will see true love. What a beautiful couple and wedding. These two lovebirds are in college getting their teaching degrees. What better place to have their wedding in a school? Not to mention the money saved by choosing such a venue. What a bunch of supporters and well wishers! Sniff sniff! Pass the tissues.
