What’s with the double standard and the disconnect?
Actress and talk show host Tamera Mowry-Housley has openly spoken out about the criticism she faces as the wife of a white man.
The infamous Black man and white women couple is often a center of conversation in Black groups, and I’m sure people on the outside have always wondered why?
Most would just chalk it up to racism, but is that truly what it is and if so, where did that disapproval come from?
And we all know what they say about those who make assumptions.
I myself have heard a great many times from Black men especially some variation of the statement, "I want a daughter with good hair," meaning of course,"I refuse to date a Black woman, because I don't want my daughter to have hair line mine." Statements like that also include the fact that many Black men want lighter skinned children because they perceive dark skin as unattractive.
Kodak Black semi-recently made a comment on an Instagram live stream that he didn't like Black girls, in a sexual way.
We also often see a similar reaction from Black men when they come across a Black woman in a relationship with a white man.
So, if it’s okay for other people to date outside of their race, why isn’t it okay for Black people?
