I also advocate because Black women are at a unique dating disadvantage in America.Marriageable Black women outnumber marriageable Black men by the millions.If she wants to be married, have children, etc., the numbers just aren’t in her favor to remain exclusive to Black men.

The internet has been an absolute boon for people who are open to dating interracially.

Places online like Interracial Dating allows for men and women to take all the guess work out of wondering whether or not a non-Black person is open to them.

Since Black women have been hesitant to date interracially for so long, I do consider it “progress” that many of them are discovering that different races of men are willing to love and cherish them. Candice: Something I’ve also noticed lately is that more of my Black female friends have begun to look outside their race specifically due to their frustrations with dating Black men.

I feel like this approach could be a bit problematic (because I don’t believe race determines the quality of man).

Candice: Another question I get a lot from Black women who are looking to date outside their race is how can they put themselves in the position to meet a man?

Even in my own experience I feel like men either assume that I don’t date outside my race or they have hangups about how they’d introduce me to their friends/family (which presents another issue).

Candice: There seems to be a stronger reaction to Black men who date outside their race than Black women who do the same. But when men do the same, it’s often seen as a betrayal. Christelyn: Actually, I’ve experienced that in the reverse.

Historically, Black men have been dating and marrying interracially at higher rates than Black women for the last 40 years.

I often hear the old, tired line that black folks need to work on themselves before they can mingle romantically with other races. You can still advocate for change and love your blackness if you have a non-black spouse.
