Interracial dating marriage is wrong - online dating matchmaking

Let’s face it: when it comes to reporting about “Jungle Fever,” this virus is only at epidemic proportions in the African American press.

We have unhelpful comments from people like Taye Diggs "jokingly" perpetuating the stereotype that black women are harsh and hard to deal with.

Here is the standard disclaimer: I don’t have a problem with two folks of different races – or same gender for that matter – hooking up. How we empower our people is by teaching self-love and by erasing those mental chains that tell us that “we” are inherently bad.

Some people really do date outside of their race out of love and not some underlying motive. We heal the world by recognizing cultural differences, and yes skin tone, and by ensuring that our differences do not lead to inequality. However, if you are using love and sex as some sort of political statement, position for advancement or weapon of revenge and conquest, than you are no better, and odds are, you’re more part of the problem than you think.

This short article will examine a few of the assumptions and conclusions made by those who firmly believe God does not approve of interracial "mixing." Perhaps the greatest assumption made by those who thunder that interracial dating is wrong is that the Israelites had a "pure" heredity which God wanted them to maintain.

The Bible shows, however, that the group who left Egyptian bondage was anything but pure genetically.

Source: Why are black folks so infatuated with interracial dating? Of course, all black folks aren’t obsessed with interracial dating.

However, it seems like almost daily I come across a news post, and columns in magazines and blogs dedicated to black folks, speaking about the glory of dating outside of the black community.

A black woman attending a predominantly white church must find her security in the Lord.

This, of course, is no different from anyone at any church.

And if there are folks willing to read it, than you can place the blame solely on black media for continuing to cater to their audience. So much for thinking that the milk is less spoiled on the other side.

Which leads me to ask: If the color of the person we choose to date doesn’t matter, why do we talk about it so much? Truth is, championing dating interracially to empower the black community, particularly black women, is no more logical or rational than the colorblind racists, who believe that breeding ourselves into one in-between race will fix the world (yeah, like that worked for the Chinese and the Japanese).

So obviously these stories are very popular, which is why these publications continue to put them out. Let’s face it, no matter how far we think we have come in this society, as a race, too many of are still looking, waiting and idolizing the white savior.
