How to date, mate and relate. Mixing race, culture and creed.
A white man’s perspective…
I’m going to take a temporary break from my no-sugar protest for this…
“Move over Steve Harvey “Think Like a Man’ and Watch out “Sex in the City” Swirling is a Tipping Point waiting to HAPPEN! This could easily be a BLOCKBUSTER FILM!” says Jessy
For those of you who weren’t able to make it, yesterday’s Swirling book signing at Eso Won in Los Angeles was standing room only, and there was a line out the door. LOVED that my BB&W peeps, Elizabeth, Lorrainne, Czarina, Masha, Demita and Kimberly came! You guys rock!
Hmmm…what to make of this…
did this interview after my bedtime, so I’m pretty proud that I remained conscious.
Okay, you can put Grandpa’s monocle away.
Nothing it more fun that drunk tweeting, so…WHERE’S MY VODKA?!
You’ll have to squint to read this, or get your old-lady monocle out, because we won’t be able to see the article in full until next week. But here’s what you need to know: Maclean’s, Canada’s leading and most-circulated weekly magazine (it’s like our TIME magazine) LOVES “Swirling,” the blog, and thinks you single black women should move the heck up there. And guess what? My buddies at Chonilla got a great quote in, too!
Black women in America are more likely to be unmarried than women of other races. They are also least likely to marry men outside of their race although a Pew Research Center report suggests that interracial marriage has more than doubled since 1980.
Released in February 2012, the report suggests that there are specific gender variations within some racial groups. Asian women are twice as likely to marry out as Asian men and Black males are more than twice as likely to marry out as their female counterparts.
The folks at SheKnows.com asked me to lend them some wisdom on the oft studied, oft misunderstood, oft discussed, oft debated tangle of that, that, and the other regarding interracial relationships.
Here’s a bit:
After May 15, I’ll be expecting to be on your Christmas, Kwanza and Hannukah cards because the mother of all book signings is happening in Los Angeles, and boy oh boy, we’ve got some goodies for only the first 25 people who arrive at Eso Wan book store–you know that one, where BARACK OBAMA and BILL CLINTON came down from Heaven to sign their books. And because I know people, I’ve got some folks really, REALLY excited about getting all of your First Date Ready (FDR). We want you to be FDR inside AND out, so get a relationships book like “Swirling” to get your mind right, and I’ll take care of the rest.
