These relationships are caring and genuine, and surely bring happiness to the individuals involved in them. Whiteness has been a privileged and prized identity in the U. They are interested in moving up in the power structure, and one way you do that is through intermarriage with the dominant group.

This is not a cut and dried issue. First Lady Michelle Obama is a glowing exception to these daunting data and a beacon of beauty in this skewed aesthetic environment. Social science researchers posit that black men's attraction to white women as evidenced by dating behavior and growing intermarriage rates is in part historically rooted. In a perfect world, love would be blind. We love the idea that relationships go beyond race and we value the uniqueness of each and every one of our members.

This is due in part to the unsettling evidence that many groups of men do not prefer black women.

African American women are plagued by persistent, age-old stereotypes that represent them as too strong, argumentative and unfeminine. But this collection of happily ever after stories does not mean that love is blind. Another of my male relatives brought home a woman for Christmas who seemed like a modern-day, socially progressive southern belle.

You can also spend your extra time reading through interracial dating articles and trending news. Last holiday season gave me plenty of food for thought on this all too familiar and often uncomfortable racially-tinged question.
