How to date, mate and relate. Mixing race, culture and creed.
“Other from the occasional stare on the street and my kids wanting to touch my hair, no one really notices me. However, the Asian explosion or being surrounded by Asians has sometimes been overwhelming that one day I started screaming “Godzilla!” to quickly realize that I was in the wrong country.”
It was fun to go back to the place where it all happened…
The beauty of seeing the world is that, as a consequence, I continually have contact with people who are diametrically opposed to myself; people whose race, colour, and creed make them different to me in every way possible. These foreign environments lead me to interact with people, male and female, that I ordinarily would not have come to know had I stayed in my bubble back in my hometown. I roll in different social circles when I’m abroad, circles that cut across race, class, and economic status lines.
College girls, get on in here!
Ooomigosh, how could you NOT love a woman who has been instrumental in introducing so many black women to international travel? Formally named, Bella Italia, Black Girl Travel, founded by Fleace, has been instrumental in organizing the enlightenment of hundreds of black women who had absolutely no idea Italian men found them irresistible. They go to other places to, and recently made a visit down to South Africa.
I’ve had to deal with a lot of “noise” from people in my life who have something to say about my travel lifestyle.
Time to price out the Rosetta Stone…
Not sure any of you got a whiff of this fart cloud, but this is the clip from when RHOW of Atlanta went to South Africa. This a pack of ghetto black women put on display as something black girls should aspire to. OMF-inG.
Tips from the BB&W resident traveling guru
Measured my waist–30 inches. Two more inches to go. Will I then book a trip to Croatia? Nope. It’s too late for me, but not for you, my little chocolates.
I get a lot of people asking me how I manage to do it; no, I’m not rich, and yes, I fund my own travel. So how do I do it? The answer is multi-faceted, but REALLY SIMPLE: I have made travel a lifestyle and create opportunities to see the world using my abilities and resources.
To all the black women out there, instead of wasting your time reading on the latest statistic of why â€œwe are not marriageableâ€ (lies on top of lies) or arguing with trolls online, why not spend that energy on what you want? If you want to live abroad seek jobs that provide that? If you want a boyfriend or husband, spend time seeking that, if you want a new job, spend time doing that as well. This year 2012, black women should be singing a new tune, blogging on newer topics, and sharing their fun, fulfilled, happy lives online.
