Interracial dating in washington dc

30 Dec

In the time allotted, however, I'll do my best to give you at least a summary of what I uncovered in my research and how I hope this information can generate some much needed fresh discussion on race and relationships.

_______________________ Arlington, VA: What effect, if any, does an inter-racial marriage have upon the children that result?

As someone else I interviewed said "Screwed up parents, screwed up child." This is absolutely correct, I think. Folan, As a black woman who recently graduated from Harvard Law School, we have a lot in common!

We need to make sure we have stable loving relationships with our spouses. I appreciate your perspective and wonder if I could ask what your thoughts are on the statistic quoted in the article regarding the percentage of black men with white women (I believe 73% of black/white relationships? As a person who is currently in a serious relationship with a white man, I embrace your motto!

To me, they're just "my family" not my "interracial family." _______________________ Washington, DC: I am a white man in a relationship with a black woman and we recently were out with four other couples celebrating a friends birthday. I suspect that there is a huge shift taking place, and I personally believe this a huge step toward greater racial healing in our country.

_______________________ Woodbridge: How is it that black women feel wrong for considering white men, but black men don't feel the same way if they have a white woman? Karyn Folan: Hi Woodbridge, I certainly can't speak for black men, but several of the women I interviewed spoke to a double standard in their families.

Submit your questions and comments before or during the discussion.

Karyn Folan: I have found that the longer my husband and I are together, the less I notice things like this.

In fact, now when we're out with our family and someone stares, I start looking to see if a button has popped off my blouse, or if one the girls' noses needs wiping! It takes me a minute to remember why they might be staring.
