Hello again and thanks to those who are reading this entry. Years of work and travel have put this blog on hiatus,but alas, I'm here to post some thoughts on what I deem a curious phenomenon: an equal if not higher incidence of interracial dating between black women and white men in red states than in blue. This isn't to say that relationships between said people don't occur in more liberal parts of the USA. Go to California, and it's not uncommon to see a black lady with a white man; on the opposite side of the nation, IR dating between both is also common in parts of NYC. Indeed, in gentrified parts of Brooklyn, it seems that the BW/WM pairing is becoming the default one, especially with those younger than I.

 

Nevertheless, when I was in Atlanta, Dallas and Houston for conferences the past couple years, I was somewhat surprised by the number of BW/WM couples. Granted, some would say that none of the cities are an accurate barometer of the south, yet I also noticed aforementioned pairings in rural Alabama, Florida and Mississipi, too. Perhaps on account of my liberal political and social views, I presumed that no black woman would ever accompany a Southern good old boy in public. Suffice it to say, this assumption was disproved on numerous occasions in a cultural, historic and social milieu one wouldn't think was cordial to such a coupling. Yes, travel does broaden the mind, and one cannot assume that black women only listen to soul, RnB, rap

and hip hop.

 

Anyhow, I thought I would get this off my chest. Finally, this phenomenon has me thinking the following as well: is interracial dating more a political expression in more so called liberal parts of America? I suppose I should probe this in another entry.



This is where things stand in my opinion.

WoW

 

That's the first time I've heard that assumption & I'm not a young "chickadee". I'm in Tennessee. Many of us BW are educated and professional. Therefore; we are working or running our businesses and you may not see many BW/WM couples in public as much unless we are sightseeing or attending an event.

 

We certainly don't hide our men.

I'm from NC and growing up most of the time I was the only black female on a team are in some clubs that was offered at school but I can honestly say it never was an issue I was always treated with respect it wasn't until I became grown and travel the world that I experience negativity my mother and father always told me and my siblings I don't care what color just as long as they respect you so for me that's the bottom line I love all kinds of music I were cowboy boots all year round and I love it. So tell me who are you interested in who do you hope that you can make a connection with
