Philly interracial dating
But after the announcement of the engagement of Prince Harry and actress Meghan Markle on Monday, we might be taking our fandom a little too far.Markle, a divorced biracial American television star, will be the first women of color to be married to a living heir to the British throne.I’m working on a master list NEVER BEEN DONE before (not sure why, tho) on an interracial dating blog.Back when I co-work Swirling, we created a list of interracial-friendly cities and states, and some of them were not really a surprise–Los Angeles and pretty much all of California, parts of Texas, some fly over states, and swaths of regions on the East Coast and South. So today I thought to myself, So I’m off building the MASTER IR-FRIENDLY LIST of CITIES, COUNTIES, NEIGHBORHOODS and TOWNSHIPS that you can feel free to pursue employment, real estate, and vacation spots and know for certain that no one will throw stones, harass you, or otherwise make you feel miserable.We wallow in the pageantry, the quaint customs, the bold gowns and over-the-top elegance.Like the British invasion music of the 1960s, royal weddings have wormed their way into a permanent home in the American psyche.
(Insert That means Markle will be the first woman of color to enter the notoriously stodgy British monarchy.
(Never mind the fact that Obama just may like 19-year-old Rory Farquharson.) Kaufman trudged out all the expected facts: According to a Pew Research poll, only 30 percent of black adults were married as of 2015.
And, yes, it’s really hard for black women — especially those with degrees — to marry an equally yoked brother, because black men don’t go to college and they all end up in jail. So this is why I sat at yet another Thanksgiving dinner table without a partner at my side — because nobody finds me attractive? If black women are so undesirable, why is everything from our cornrows to our curvy behinds being appropriated by the likes of the Kardashians?
(Sarcasm intended.) And then Kaufman threw in this almost four-year-old factoid pointing to OKCupid: black women are America’s least-desired group by men of all races. These stats continue to reinforce the jacked-up notion that the single, college-educated woman is on the fast track to old maid status, and that makes happiness more and more elusive.
“The negative cycle — especially in dating — sucks us in,” said Pax Tandon, a Philadelphia positive psychology expert and wellness coach.
