I'd imagine the great majority of interracial unions are solely based on true love because I couldn't imagine a relationship lasting on anything less than that, but even so, there are still stigmas in the Black community that we have placed on ourselves and interracial relationships.Now, the question that I don't know the answer to is, is it up to us to change how we view these relationships or will those stigmas wither away when we no longer live under the cloud of white supremacy?grew increasingly concerned about the secularization of higher education and the influence of religious liberalism in denominational colleges.Children of church members were attending college, only to reject the faith of their parents.I recently came across a Facebook post asking Black people what they thought of a cartoon image depicting a Black woman in a relationship with a white man. Even though I, personally, generally don't care about Black people dating outside of the race, I, as a Black women, ABSOLUTELY saw where many of those people were coming from.Initially, I thought it weird that someone would even ask a question like that, but after sifting through the comments, and I mean COMMENTS, it was clear that many people really did have thought-out and serious opinions about it. I imagine that if you were to ask a random Black person what they thought about interracial relationships in general, they’d say they were indifferent, but I think we’ve all noticed the *humpf* Black women often make when they come across a Black man in a relationship with a woman outside of his race.
Now, if we are being completely honest here, white women are stereotyped as being the weakest of any group of people.
We see it everyday, but I think it happens to affect Black women and Black men differently.
There are many Black men out there who actually feel Black women are, and forgive me for being so blunt, generally ugly.
So when a Black women ends up with a white man, we are often looked at as not being able to "handle" the Black man, who is himself looked at as the strongest of any group of people.
Mowry-Housley is not the only Black women in the media to be labeled as this.
