MashogaNubianPrince saidWhen I was younger and more closed minded I used to think that black men who exclusively dated non white or mostly white women were either ashamed of their racial background or felt no pride for their racial heritage. Like a lot of the community leaders tended to have white spouses and I thought 'how can you claim to be proud of being black and married to a white person?' However I have moved on that line of thinking and now people direct the same comments towards me. Apparently dating white men makes me less black,lol.
Anyone else know what I'm dealing with?
man, to me, i never really got why interracial marriage was a big deal begin with. *shrugs* maybe that's because there were people in my family that were doing it and it was just normal. *shrugs* i have a couple of mixed first cousins. they never married the people that they were with because they're white or whatever. my relatives that married white guys married them because they saw something in them that they loved, had kids and now have a family. it wasn't about black and white. but a part of that had to do with them being in another country. in this case, england. it appears to be more acceptable over there than over in the states.
people are going to say whatever they're going to say and feel how they feel. keep it ignant and etc. like it or not. don't let that stop you from doing what you feel. love is colorless, genderless, and etc etc. as long as you're in love with someone who is of age and can consent for themselves where they know what they're getting themselves into, who cares. i just want a guy who loves me for me and i love him for who he is. he can be black, asian, white or whatever. however, something as simple as that gets fucking complicated when it doesn't need to be because it seems like the world likes to make issues over nothing. people get bored and they have nothing better to do than to give a fuck about things that they shouldn't give a fuck about. after awhile, you just have to say fuck everybody and do whatever you have to do instead of worrying about what other people think. they're gonna hate anyway.
