I have noticed that for them it's important to brag they are not just with a black woman, but also a Latina from the Caribbean AND who speaks Spanish..are besides themselves!!!
Kellina Craig-Henderson: Very interesting what you refer to is the extent to which being "Black" in the US is undervalued, and even denigrated.
Kellina Craig-Henderson: Yes, I agree, and you are very fortunate to have had so many diverse experiences.
I believe that the source of a lot of anger (on both sides) are the stereotypes people have about others. After doing so, I think you'll find that the issue and discussion as I have treated it is not about being an angry Black woman. C.: What are the true statistics of black men dating non-white women?
I believe is it counterproductive and a point of unnecessary stress for African American women to agonize over this issue.
As African American women we need to channel these feelings and understand them.
As a person whose entire family (on both sides) has been mixed race for many generations now - I choose to distance myself from such attitudes because they dishonor my family history which includes Mexican, Native American and Anglo.
-And- possibly entertain the idea that our partner may be someone who is not Black._______________________ Observations from a Latina/Black woman: I am from a Spanish-speaking Caribbean island..my case, that means I am both black and Latina.So, I feel that I have a special insight in this topic.My African American grandfather migrated to Mexico looking for work in 1890.He learned Spanish and met and married my Mexican grandmother before coming back to the U. The history of mixture is similar on my father's side and the family into which I married.
