How to date, mate and relate. Mixing race, culture and creed.
Several of you ladies have sent me links to a few trending stories about how “mystified” some black women bloggers are about all the “hoopla” surrounding interracial dating, particularly when it comes to white men. Now normally I don’t address haterade every time it’s thrown my way because I have better things to do, like have that root canal and colonoscopy I’ve been putting off. But when the target of the ire really isn’t about me, but about attacking the message–that black women are entitled to have happy, healthy relationship choices just like every other man and woman on the planet, then you’re going to get me showing my fangs and claws.
This is by far our most amazing event to date. Ritzy location, upscale clientele, a chance to meet that someone special. What more could you ask for?
As an aside, I have to give props to the online black media at large who [mostly] remained open to the message of the book, and upon reading it, realized that this book was not about white knights and white-man worshiping, nor was it about black-men bashing. There is one blog magazine in particular that has it out from me, but I’m heartened that most people can see through their agendas.
I guess just about everybody has a what-da-cuss family moment…
“Sadly, as much as I enjoyed reading “SWIRLING” and found myself laughing and slapping my knees in agreement with the author’s and their experiences—I became very upset when I tried to get other Black women to read the book and found myself met with walls of stubborn resistance.”
“Swirling” co-author Janice Rhoshalle Littlejohn with Conney Williams, one of the event organizers.
