No Wedding, No Womb!

So…Because I Married Interracially, I’m Not Black Anymore?

In all seriousness, people; really?

It has come to my attention that SOME folks who love the NWNW message are coming to THIS site and are flabbergasted and flummoxed that a black woman who married interracially has the NERVE to speak out against out-of-wedlock children in the Black Community.


Never mind that my oldest child’s father is by a man about a black as you can get. And then, forget about the white guy who loves her like his own (as in, just like the other three we made together). This is a travesty! The organizer of a movement to call black people to the carpet to put children first when procreating DOES NOT FIT THE PRE-APPROVED BLACK PERSON CHECKLIST!! Somebody call Al Sharpton, ASAP!

So let me get this straight, Oh Defenders of All Things Dark & Lovely, what exactly is it that you are offended about?

  • That my 12-year-old daughter’s father didn’t think it was necessary to marry the mother of his only child?
  • That my husband, who is as white as the driven snow, fell in love with me and my daughter and married the package?
  • The fact that my husband is a church-going, loyal and faithful provider for his family, works his backside to the bone so that I can stay home with our kids and pursue my dreams of world domination?

What is it? Is it because he has a melanin deficiency? We’re going to HAVE to get that looked into. Or maybe I should just divorce him so that I can please you.

But in the meantime, for those who support the NWNW message but shun the VERY IDEA that a black woman DARE seek happiness with anyone other than a black man, don’t bother with your support. I don’t need it. Because take a gander at all the folks who signed on to our historic event, despite that fact that some of you think I’m some kind of ‘race traitor.’
