FYI: This is a repost from my mission site, www.noweddingnowomb.com. I thought it was important to repost this here, because for rainbow daters, it’s good to be aware of the level of ignornace you might face. I plan to explore a bit of this in the future, but right now I’m gargling the throw-up in my mouth.
Here is my comment from this post. I guess I should really thank these people for martyring me. Anyone in their right mind can see through this.
Here’s the problem with your arguement about me and my husband (by the way, is so low a blow that I can’t even tell you) heis ancestry did not arrive in the U.S. until 1900. Should I hold him responsible anyway? Because some black women have killed their kids, because you are black, should I hold you responsible?
And another thought: Unless your date is 150 years old, I think its a little unfair to hold every white man accountable.
But thank you for doing this. In a way, you’re bolstering me, because any person in their right mind can see you’re using this as a smokescreen to deflect the issue.
So I guess I should say thank you.
But first let’s start with this little nugget:
So what would happen if the future mothers and fathers of our bloodline wholeheartedly followed this movement? Given the fact that they should not procreate until they are â€œemotionally, physically and financially able to care forâ€ children, that would significantly reduce the census of this already identified minority. Suddenly I got the image of the movement handing our youth loaded guns, safety off, with the directive to â€œKill yourself!â€
So…the ONLY way the Black Race can survive is through illegitamacy? Wow. This is so good. Just…wow.
The first place I started was with the movementâ€™s proprietor, Christelyn D. Karazin (see her bio here https://noweddingnowomb.com/) a black female journalist, self-proclaimed â€œbaby mammaâ€ turned wife and advocate of interracial relationships. Normally I wouldnâ€™t touch the latter but since I see it as pertinent to this discussion I think Iâ€™ll go there. After all, any movement will be led in the direction of the captain of its ship.
Pertinent to the discussion? How is the fact that I’m married interracially have to do with me caring about, organizing, working my arse off, calling, cajoling, rallying, planning, strategizing, sweating, crying to organize an movement to at least get “us” talking about the huge out-of-wedlock epidemic? In other words, what does that have to do with the cost of tea in China? Nice try though.

And just for good measure, let’s review:
“So, because I’m married interracially, I’m not black anymore?”
One day I asked her, â€œDo you entertain guests in a dirty house?â€ Of course she stated she would not to which I replied that as black people we have too much house cleaning to do before we can entertain guests, a reference to the psychological, emotional and financial healing of the community.
So…the millions of black women married interracially should have just waitedandwaitedandwaitedandwaitedandwaitedandwaitedandwaited until the black collective got their stuff right? Why should you care if they might have grown miserable, disallusioned and lonely? After all, YOU got yours, right?
