Can We Discuss Interracial Marriage Without Being Stereotypical?

3.     Has he even seen Love Jones/The Color Purple/Any other black classic movie?

This is a very common question. I’ve had girlfriends tell me that they could NEVER date someone who has never seen “Love Jones.” Interesting. When we met, my husband had seen some black movies, but certainly not as many as the average black person.  I watch black movies (and lots of other types as well), so he does too.  It’s been fun watching new and old movies together.  Sometimes I have to explain certain cultural references.  Sometimes I have to look up answers to his questions.  I don’t mind that at all. We were raised in different environments, so of course we have different reference points.  We teach each other things. Hubby hadn’t seen “Love Jones” until after we met. We have it on DVD now.
