Can You Be Pro-Black and be in a IR PT. II
dim. 30 septembre à 23:00
Hey W.O.K.E. Members, Had a little break! Hope you enjoyed your summer. Well, since we had a great discussion last meetup on this very topic, I decided to have a Part II and continue the discussion! Can you be Pro-Black/Brown/Asian/Native and be in an Interracial Relationship? Lately, I've seen videos and articles aimed at women of color who are open to the idea of being in an interracial relationship. Some videos are encouraging of dating outside your race/culture, and others are making points why you are anti-Black/Brown/Asian/Native if you choose to date outside your race/culture. Last year, I read a book called; "Is Marriage For White People" by Ralph Richard Banks. Here are some of the points that he is making in the book. * During the past half-century, African Americans have become the most unmarried people in our nation
More than two out of every three black women are unmarried, and they are more than twice as likely as white women to never marry
Black educated women tend to marry black men with less education than their Latinx, Asian, and White women counterparts.
Black women rarely marry men of other races
*Black women are less than likely as black men, and only a third as likely as Latinos or Asian Americans, to marry across group lines. “Is Marriage For White People?”, explains why black women marry down more than any other racial groups. The underlies are, can you be in an interracial relationship and still be proud of who you are as a woman of color? Have you dated outside of your race and struggled with the underly themes of being anti-black, brown, Asian, or native? Have you been shunned from family and friends for doing so? You don't have to read the book, "Is Marriage for White People?" to join this discussion! I would post a few videos of the author and how he further explains his research on this very topic. Please join me at Harlem Coffee Co. in Harlem on September 30th from 5-7: 30 pm. Look forward to meeting with you all. Bring a friend! And tell them about W.O.K.E. (Women of Kolour Empowered)! Best, Amy Afua
