Karyn Folan: I have found that the longer my husband and I are together, the less I notice things like this.In fact, now when we're out with our family and someone stares, I start looking to see if a button has popped off my blouse, or if one the girls' noses needs wiping! It takes me a minute to remember why they might be staring.I do hope that you will pick up a copy of "Don't Bring Home A White Boy (And Other Notions That Keep Black Women from Dating Out).I spent almost a year working on it, and it goes into far more depth about things like the "double standards" between how black men and black women view interracial dating, the issues facing bi-racial children, and why it is that some women who should know better choose "bad boys" instead of the "nice men" they say they want!I think a lot of those resentments stem from insecurities about our value-- and as I well know, we ALL have to work on that. Acknowledge your feelings, and then try to understand where they come from.Not to sound too "granola" here but the work is always within.
One of the experts framed it perfectly, however, when she pointed out that we ought to ask ALL prospective parents "what about the children? As we all know, same-race parents don't necessarily insure that a child will have a happy or secure childhood.I also think, however, that the black community RELIES on black women.And there's a perception that there will be real problems if too many black women date or marry outside of it.Even more surprising to us, was that three of the five were comprised of white men and black women. I worry that dating a white guy may adversely affect my son.I also worry about the ability of a white male to relate to the personal struggles - as a black male - that my son will have to endure and deal with.
As someone else I interviewed said "Screwed up parents, screwed up child." This is absolutely correct, I think. Folan, As a black woman who recently graduated from Harvard Law School, we have a lot in common!
