Real live my cam online - Completely interracial dating
That is the one topic that can take a discussion from straight-forward fun to completely contentious.
This week, a writer named Ernest Baker, typed a 2,600 word manifesto on his affinity for caucasian women titled “The Reality of Dating White Women When You’re Black.” In his article, he rambled about many different topics in a disjointed manner when he really just wanted to say, “I like white girls and I cannot lie! ” After many years of writing about interracial dating on my website, This Is Your Conscience.com, speaking on relationship panels all over North America and the Caribbean, hosting a weekly podcast on relationships and writing one novella and one full book on love and dating, it is easy to say that I’ve immersed myself in relationships.
I don’t say any of that to come off like an expert (because I don’t even believe there’s such a thing as a relationship expert) but I want it to be clear that I’m fully aware of the explosiveness of this conversation and the one thing I’ve learned is that interracial dating conjures up a world of emotions and insecurities, no matter how hard we all try to act like we are “post-racial” and unconcerned with it.
I absolutely detest when people say “no one cares if you date someone from another race” because that comment is not supported by fact in any way.
Another article titled, “Nobody Cares That You Date White Girls” ended up getting way over 400 comments, much more than average piece.
We need to stop pretending that people don’t care, because comment sections on blogs are all blowing up with discussing this supposedly irrelevant issue.
The truth about interracial dating that no one wants to admit is that the issue is still extremely sensitive because very few of us have engaged in a completely honest discussion about how it affects the many different aspects of our collective lives.
Although there are many different cultural, historic and psychological dynamics at play here, there are two main reasons why most of us DO care about interracial dating, as much as we pretend it’s not a big issue, and it all begins with the collective cowardice of men and women like Ernest Baker.
Over the last several decades, the American public has grown increasingly accepting of interracial dating and marriage.
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.
Millennials are no exception to this trend: Large majorities of 18-to-29 year olds express support for interracial marriage within their families, and the level of acceptance in this generation is greater than in other generations.
