It is a event, and it is current. I posted it because I felt like it. Why are you posting if you don't like the topic

Strange current event.

I thought this type of strife was always (and always will be) part of ANY CULTURE. Parents want their kids to marry within there race...what is the Great Mystery ???

I can relate to the guy who wrong that letter. I'm a late 20's Black male, and a large amount of women I've had crushes on have been non-Black women. And it doesn't stop there. There have been Black women of immigrant parents(Africa, the West Indies) who said that their parents don't want them to date African-American men. There are times when I find myself say "Man, we're despised by everyone, even foreign-born Blacks". Now, there are no absolutes. However, there are times when I find myself wondering how I fit into society as an American Black man.

Now, as I said before. At the end of the day, I care about where I will end up. Should I have to work twice as hard to get as much as anyone else in this regard?
Take a look at the sign up date, don't feed.

Back to the OT, I love how blunt and honest he is. I'd probably react in a similar way if that happened to me.

On the bright side, if you meet your dream girl, and she happens to be black, her family is going to LOVE you.

Prejudice does suck. Sorry, but it's out there.

I was channel surfing one night and stopped on a show where the woman host was talking to six black men, in their 20's for the most part, who had fathered 87 children with 50 different mothers.

Yes, that's a problem.
