We have visited the subject of black love and dating here on On the Road to Queendom and I have made my position very clear. In case you are new and need to know it is the following:
While I am proud and love who I am I embrace all of God's creations. I simply believe in love, no matter the race, creed, or color. It just so happens I fell head over heels with and have married my equal, a beautiful black King.
My ideology came at a price while dating. I lived for quite some time in the South where there is still a lot of prejudice and segregation. I have dated outside of my race while living there and have received all kind of flack, black on black prejudice and some more. But I stand firm in my beliefs. I have had friends tell me that I was a sell out for dating outside of my race, and that I should wait for a good black man. I could not wrap my head around this. Why should I sacrifice a good date, going bowling, to the movies, out to eat simply because the man isn't black? I just shrugged it off and kept on stepping.
Now fast forward to 2009, here is a long list populated by afieldnegro.com that lists the majority of black men who are dating or married to non-black women. I don't see anything wrong with it but it is shocking to see the pattern. I commend afieldnegro.com for putting this list together, and opening up the floor on this subject.
I want to ask you about how you feel about this? Are some of you still adamant about only dating black men? Let's discuss this...
Stay Blessed & Happy Locing!
