I seriously considered giving up my blog this week. Not because I was tired of it or because I'm too busy or too lazy to keep it up. LOL well okay the last two reasons aren't too far from the truth. But rather because I wondered if I was being a hypocrite.
Let me explain. Recently a friend of mine posted an article about interracial dating. She's been doing online dating on and off for the past year and the majority of what she posts on her FB page is often relationship-based articles. This particular article talks about how black women are "warming up" to the idea of IR dating. After reading the article I found myself pretty annoyed. I'm not sure if my annoyance is just an overreaction/irrational or not. I'll let y'all decide.
What bugged me wasn't so much what was in the article. It’s that fact that there is yet another article like this. It seems like every few months there are articles or studies that constantly remind Black women that we're shit especially when it comes to dating. It's so sad and pitiful that Black women are single and not getting married. The solution? Be open-minded and date non-Black men!
And this shit is pissing me off.
