Can We Discuss Interracial Marriage Without Being Stereotypical?

1.     Why do you hate black men?

The short and sweet answer is that I don’t hate black men. My father is a black man as are my brother, a boatload of cousins, most of my male friends and about 85% of the men I’ve ever dated.  There are lots of good black men in my life. I do not believe the hype of those skewed statistics that certain media outlets feed us. There are good black men out there, ladies.  They do exist.  Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t have a good black man by your side.  I chose my husband because he is kind, smart, handsome, ambitious, funny, etc.  For some reason people assume that if you are with a non-black man, you must have sworn off black men at some point.  I never did that.
