How to date, mate and relate. Mixing race, culture and creed.
A BB&W intern goes to Matthew Hussey’s online event…and got a HUG!!
Culture has dictated for over 400 years that black women are property, of low grade and value, and are more male than female. That mindset, although it may take another 400 years, must change and that starts with you and me.
Every time I see a white woman with a black man, I must admit I get a little jealous. Not because I want her man, but because I wish it were just as easy for me to date interracially so my mind began to wonder: why is that? Why is it easier for black males to pursue IR than their female counterparts? Why or how are non-black females more easily able to pursue relationships with men outside their race than black women? It’s got to be more than a European standard of beauty.
I’ve recently come to terms with the fact that I am an awkward, black, female introvert.

On location at the film screening and panel discussion of “The Souls of Black Girls”, BB&W had the opportunity to speak with Panel member, the lovely Demetria Irwin, former Managing Editor of MadameNoire.com and mentor at Girls Write Now. We discussed role models, media images, family, and of course, writing. Its time for black women to start telling our own stories and defining our sexuality. Ms. Irwin is definitely one of the leaders to take up that great task!

Recently, I was on location at the A.M.E. Zion Church on the Hill in Harlem to attend a panel discussion and film screening of the “Souls of Black Girls.” Negative media representation of black females and other women of color is nothing new to the BB&W community, but this news documentary was very refreshing in that opened doors to the minds of younger girls and teenagers and their critique of the media.

“I got the ‘Welcome to New York’ speech twice. Thank you, but I was welcomed by the drunkard who shoved me into a concrete wall and countless homeless men pissing and masturbating on the train a long time ago. No matter what, this is not okay and no woman should be subjected to that.”
