Henson in his recent movie, "I Can Do Bad All by Myself"; in "The Princess and the Frog" featuring Disney's first black princess, the prince's indeterminate racial origins inspired commentary; and there was the 2006 movie "Something New," in which characters played by Simon Baker, who is white, and Sanaa Lathan, who is black, fall in love.
In encouraging black women to date and marry interracially, the book has joined a broadening debate in recent years fueled by the blogosphere, the entertainment industry and comments by prominent African Americans.
And in this case, we are the commodity and the new market is men of other races." Folan is the author of "Don't Bring Home a White Boy: And Other Notions That Keep Black Women From Dating Out," published this month by Karen Hunter, an imprint of Pocket Books.
(By contrast, my husband’s and my generation, the baby boomers, did tend to date and marry within our race.) While intermarriage is becoming more common, black women in America still face significant challenges in their relationships with black men, and the problem is doubly difficult for women in the church.
According to David Morrow in , “a staggering 92 percent of African-American churches in America reported a gender gap.” According to Morrow’s sources, “75 to 90 percent of the adults in the typical African-American congregation are women.” That means black Christian women face a low probability of marrying black Christian men.
Does the race really matter when it comes to infidelity or lying? Now, when a black man hooks up or marries a woman of another race he’s trash. Well, is it possible that he feels the same way you do towards men, better yet black men? No need to make him feel like less of a man for dating a white woman. Not everyone of a different race acts the same way as our clown ass celebrity-in-chief.
Don’t get me wrong, there are some low down shady ass people out here, but everyone isn’t the same.
We ain't using Black women's dating habits for pageviews in 2017, fam.

Oprah Winfrey has encouraged black women to explore "what is out there." While the discussion includes men of all races and ethnicities, the focus is primarily on overcoming taboos against dating white men. Get over those old images of slavery and stop blaming every white man for sins perpetrated by others.
By promoting interracial love for some black women, Folan explains that she is not suggesting that there aren't any good, single black men out there, or that every educated single black woman will not find an educated black mate.
Rachel Lindsay, the first black female to participate, broke down in tears.
