White celebrities dating black men break the ice online dating
By her own reckoning Jill Scott's friend is "new." All she knows about him is that he's nice-looking, well compensated and loves his mother.He could have a trail of baby momma's from Oakland to Kansas City.My new friend is handsome, African-American, intelligent and seemingly wealthy.He is an athlete, loves his momma, and is happily married to a White woman.It's totally out of whack with what I see/hear in my daily interactions.
But something in me just knew he didn't marry a sister. My body showed no reaction to my inner pinch, but the sting was there, quiet like a mosquito under a summer dress. Did the reality of his relationship somehow diminish his soul's credibility? One could easily dispel the wince as racist or separatist, but that's not how I was brought up. I was taught that every man should be judged by his deeds and not his color, and I firmly stand where my grandmother left me.I’m not an avid follower of Chris Brown’s seemingly endless list of public hijinx and screwups (for starters, who has that kind of time?), but I'm well aware of his status as a man who has beat up at least one woman.Writing about this has helped me get clearer and clearer on this.
To be blunt--I think people who spend their time stressing about the DNA admixture in other people's relationship need to give some thought to boundaries.
Although my guess hit the mark, when my friend told me his wife was indeed Caucasian, I felt my spirit...wince. African people worldwide are known to be welcoming and open-minded.
