Yet we’re statistically the least likely to date interracially. My goal is to encourage Black women to exercise all of their options. Discount no one because of melanin, or lack thereof. Candice: What advice would you offer women who don’t date interracially because of what people might think? I know a few women who would never date interracially, despite the knowledge that men of other races are interested in them.
Candice: Why do you think there are so many Black women who don’t consider dating outside their race? Our country’s shameful history of slavery is often used as a club to beat Black women into submission about dating interracially, particularly when it comes to white men. I would say that if you’re the type of person who is overly concerned with what other people think about your life, then interracial dating is not for you.
Christelyn: Black women have a unique set of challenges in the dating market.If she wants to be married, have children, etc., the numbers just aren’t in her favor to remain exclusive to Black men.Why is it “problematic” to open yourself up to other men who might love you?It’s time to have an honest, open discussion about interracial relationships.No, I don’t mean gabbing about the latest drama between Olivia and Fitz.
