Interracial Love or Self Hate
A question of honesty...
Interracial dating or just self hate?
Let me start this blog by saying that I think when two people of any race, gender, or ethnic group can find love with one another there is nothing more beautiful on this earth. The links between two people that can last a lifetime are magnificent. In no way shape of form am I against interracial relationships; however there is something deep within some blacks (men and women) who enter into such unions I find extremely disturbing.
These are hopefully the minority of this group however loud they seem to yell. These blacks seem to be driven by what can only be described as a case of self-hate. They like to blog about how their choice in mates are far more superior to those in their own race. Strangely enough, you will rarely hear them talk up the race of their choice; instead they prefer to focus on the negatives within their race. Most of their rhetoric is contrived from what seems to be the media portrayal of black life.
The Black Man
Black men will spend countless hours writing about black women who are loud, obnoxious, and greedy. The gold digger who wants nothing more than his money, she is ill mannered, confused, and lacks any level of compassion.
The Black Woman
Black women take a different approach towards black men. To them black men are lazy, uneducated, unmotivated criminals. All black men want to sit on their couch and play video games all day while they work to pay the bills. They stay in jail or like to spend quality time sleeping with other black men (down low).
These people I have identified as race chasers. They hate who they are and feel that by dating or marrying someone who is white they are thus released from the curse of blackness. I say white because you will notice that 99% of these blacks are married or in a relationship with whites. Thus it is their duty to denounce that which is bad, that which they have boldly left behind. They speak ill of the black race as though this somehow lifts them out of black status into a status acceptable to whites. They are willing to denounce any person of color in order to cleanse themselves from the curse of blackness. They did not find happiness with a white person, they are happy because their mate is white.
As a black man, I can say that very few (some) but very few black people meet the above stereotypes. This is why I must pause wonder about the agenda of blacks who's motivation for choosing another race is the so called failings of their own race. Is this person seeking love or are they simply chasing the white race?
