Thoughts on interracial dating
Phillips of the Black Joy Mixtape podcast breaks down why Black men dating outside their race is still such a hot topic, even in 2017. We still got a lot of comments on our social pages about the story.
Hint: it has less to do about who you fall in love with and more to do with how these men are treating Black women. Why do you think this issue of black man dating outside their race still gets people so riled up in 2017?
Unfortunately, this is an issue for some Black women who are outright told that they “better not bring home a white boy.” If this is your experience, then you must decide if having outside approval is worth limiting your options to one race only.
For me, life is too short to be worried about who I’ll disappoint.
I’ve dated both inside and outside of my race since high school.
This shift in opinion has been driven both by attitude change among individuals generally and by the fact that over the period, successive generations have reached adulthood with more racially liberal views than earlier generations.My family has Black and non-Black ancestors and in Jamaica, the motto of “Out of many, one people” is actually something we live by.So, I never had to worry about opposition from my family.Breakfast Show host Tumi Morake also shared a story from the past.
We asked a few listeners to comment and share their thought's on the man's current situation.
So When I think about these comments or look over them, I think we think things like this are funny or a joke.
