I had no idea that suggesting black women date outside of their race would, well, cause such outrage. Sure, I knew some people wouldn’t take the message well. I just didn’t think there would be hostile postings across the Internet about it. A front page Washington Post article really irritated some folks. Some call it propaganda; others consider it racist.
When I posted an update about the release of Don’t Bring Home A White Boy on Facebook, a black male friend who is married to a white woman, took me to task for suggesting black women check out the book. My goodness. I didn’t argue with him, because I didn’t — and still don’t — need to. I just happen to be one black woman who was open to interracial dating and found success.
