How to date, mate and relate. Mixing race, culture and creed.
Last weekend I had the BEST and REALEST conversation with just about the cutest couple I’ve ever seen, Justin and Joy, otherwise known as “The Love J’s.” We had a really great discussion about the blog, interracial relationships, black men and black women dynamics, and the astronomical out-of-wedlock rate in the black community.
