As a white person dating a black male, even my family has unconsciously been biased against our relationship with questions like, “What will happen if they have kids? The preconceptions about a race do more than deter relationships—they also hurt people (read more about Curtis and you’ll hear firsthand).She talked NPR in January and recounted some of the baseless things white men had to said to her: “He was like, ‘Oh, yeah, my family would never approve of you,’ and ‘Oh, so we have to bring the ‘hood out of you, bring the ghetto out of you!’” that they’re being more accepting than they actually are.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.I’ve often been called by my critics, “The Chief Bed Wench,” because I’m seen at the forefront of this issue. But many Black women are sensitive to that kind of insult and outright disapproval. We want the people in our lives to approve of the men we bring home. It comes down to what makes you happy and what makes your heart feel like it’s found its home.It kind of throws a damper on the inclination to explore interracial dating if you know your parents said they would disown you if you ever brought home a white boy. I’m seeing more and more Black women finding their bliss with the men who love and accept them, regardless of race. If you’re lonely and sad, but your entire peer group (including family) approves of the idea of never dating a non-Black man even if he was utterly kick-ass amazing, can you really say those people in your life want the best for you?Author's NOTE: Please feel free to read Part 1 if you like, though both work as stand-alone stories. "Mmmm, I've always had fantasies about my male teachers." "We do command the classroom." "Well, command me then." She set her glass down and playfully drew her finger down the length of his forearm, pulled his hand to her lips, and slowly wrapped her lips around the end of his index finger. With two long, slow strokes of her tongue, she gave him a preview of what she had in mind. Even her long, dark hair danced to the same drumbeat.
