I sat down with Renee from @RxWithRenee to discuss interracial relationships and how race impacts the way men and women interact romantically. Renee shares the challenges she experienced while being married interracially, as well as some of the lessons she learned in the process.
I recently sat down with @Itgirls_online to discuss colorism on her weekly podcast.We went over the different ways colorism affects men and women today and answered the following questions:
Today, black families hold only 1.5% of national wealth and the average white family has 8x the wealth of the average black family.
When I found this out, I was shocked and wanted to do something about it. Since then I’ve been supporting black owned businesses as much as possible.
Twerking represents the sexual freedom modern women enjoy.
We see ladies all around expressing their femininity through sensuality, and it's totally acceptable to find women--especially women of color--twerking whenever and wherever they feel the urge.
When Miss Teen USA, Miss America, Miss USA, Miss Universe and Miss World were crowned to black women the same year, it felt like real social progress. FINALLY black women are recognized for their beauty! FINALLY they're portrayed as dignified, honorable and beautiful!
I remember sharing this excitement with my fiancé, only to be met with apathy. He simply asked “ what does this change?”
