Oh I see we're going there!   :D  Very well...

Interracial dating?  I think you'll find not too many people on this board have a problem with it.  Folks are into dating whoever they have chemistry with at this point.  I say do you.  Whatever floats your boat.

Alright, how about this for a change of pace

How do you guys feel about interracial dating...

whatever floats your boat

Recently I have been criticized by black women for always being a "light chaser"  i e ... I only date light skin black women or latinas

I've faced that criticism from a dark skinned lady I was pretty serious with.  Even though I'm like Wu Tangs Ice Cream with mine.  Women, go figure.

now honestly I don't agree I find all women pretty including "dark" sisters

come again?

But I'm not going to lie my track record pretty much is mocha to white for the past couple of years...

I'm equal opportunity

A smart woman of color who I respect highly says it is do to the slave master favoring the lighter skin black people over darker ones..

bull


So what are your thoughts on the subject?

That I'm fonna get mine regardless

Journeyman, I am dumbfounded as to how you got into IU and W&L with your numbers. 155 LSAT and you applied to Vanderbilt? Honestly?

I've found in my experiences that most black women are very loud and obnoxious. For the most part they seem to be rude, crude, and biyatches.

Lol..really?


Well honestly I catch a lot of hell from black women..and even I am concerned say if I'm waking with someone from another culture  and I get some stares it seems like I don't want to portray the whole "I'm not into sistas" thing but I like what I like.. I do see a point though in trying to preserve the african family unit. Black man, Black Woman etc.. But it seems I'm meeting a lot of brothers who only date white girls..and that pisses me off.

I want to be an idealist for a minute. What if at the next SOBU they actually focused on a specific city like D.C.? Instead of inspirational talk, established goals in education, crime, and economic empowerment for the next year. Lobby for change. Then move on to the next concentration of black people.

That's what I'm talking about!  Vision translated into action...ideas and ideals worked out in the context of the right here and the right now.  You'd get my vote!  ;)

to bring back the topic of black male role models....

Does anyone remember that comment Rosie O'Donnell made about their not being many black role models and that is why black folk rallied around O.J.?

When the heck did she say this?

*Exercising restraint*

I think it speaks to the lack of cohesion in the black community.  Dedication goes beyond the financial, political, and spiritual realm.  It also includes relationships...relationships with the community.  If you were to compare the percentage of black men who date outside their race to white men and hispanic men who do the same, you would see that the numbers are exponentially larger for black men.  When you are proud of something, you take ownership of it.  No, you cant help who you are attracted to but to use that as an excuse is inexcusable.  I know a plethora of educated, sophisticated, and beautiful black women who are left twiddling their thumbs on a Saturday night because they refuse to settle for anything other than a black man.  It would be nice if one day brothers would come to appreciate the fullness of the black woman and embrace her worth.

And finally, cause the BLACK in ME just has to be heard.  A guilty conscience needs no accuser so if it bothers you this much...
Just accept that fact that I am better than you.
