Black men against interracial dating
I have noticed that for them it's important to brag they are not just with a black woman, but also a Latina from the Caribbean AND who speaks Spanish..are besides themselves!!!
Kellina Craig-Henderson: Very interesting what you refer to is the extent to which being "Black" in the US is undervalued, and even denigrated.
I believe is it counterproductive and a point of unnecessary stress for African American women to agonize over this issue.
So, I would agree, that for some Black men with "mixed" women there is a certain delight in vicariously being something other than just an African American _______________________ Washington, D.My African American grandfather migrated to Mexico looking for work in 1890.He learned Spanish and met and married my Mexican grandmother before coming back to the U. The history of mixture is similar on my father's side and the family into which I married.As a person whose entire family (on both sides) has been mixed race for many generations now - I choose to distance myself from such attitudes because they dishonor my family history which includes Mexican, Native American and Anglo.
My mother is Afro Mexican and her native language is Spanish.
There are Black men out there for us if we are willing to think outside the box - I did not say compromise our values and principles - but we may find partners where we least expect.
