Free Your Mind

Free Your Mind: The Black Girls Guide To Interracial Dating popped into my email inbox last week. It is a movement of sorts, started by Fleace Weaver. All I can wonder is why I didn’t think of it first. But then again, I’m not so sure I would have attended such a seminar when I was single. Dating someone of another race wasn’t as taboo for me as it may be for others. I grew up on military bases and didn’t give race much thought as a child. My parents did not pressure me one way or the other.  I think those are just two of the reasons I dated  — and then married — someone of another race.

Black women lined up in L.A. to see what the men had to say. The tour is supposed to swing around my way at some point and I just may check in and see how it is received.

    I have to agree with you, but there are tons of books on the shelves about how to have good relationships. Much of it is common sense.

  • What “lessons” and “guides” are required to date someone of a different race? How is dating someone of a different race different than any other dating? Don’t you get to know each other, spend time doing things of mutual interest etc. when you’re dating? I would assume that’s what folks of any color/race/ethinicity do when dating.
