This week we will attempt to go in on a very sensitive, touchy and emotionally charged topic indeed. The issue of the Successful Black men who prefer to date exclusively out of their race with White women only.
First of all, allow me to clear a few things up proactively about the intention of this particular episode…….
This week’s show is not about playing a race card or using the color issue as some kind of divisive tactic in a show based in negative energy! NO WAY!
Here at LanceScurv we pride ourselves on tackling the tough issues that others are afraid to speak on that are usually embraced in the shadows or in whispers away from the public ear.
This happens to be one of them.
Secondly, this is not an attempt to knock the reality of interracial dating or marriage because we are ALL God’s children and there are MANY factors as to why someone chooses an individual as a life partner, husband/wife or just someone to explore their emotions in a non pressure type of relationship. It’s not just about skin color, even though in some cases the contrast, societal implications and taboo effect of a union that is forbidden according to an American culture that so far behind those of the world on the issue of interracial love, is a turn on for many.
But there are too many variables that affect how two people can feel about each other and in no way am I lumping every person who may be in an interracial union into one basket as though this particular type of union all have the same motivations/origins which cause them to feel the way that they do for each other.
Third, not ALL Black men who date out of their race are driven to do so because they are “rejecting” Black women.
So as we move forward into this topic we will attempt to surgically dialogue in a precise manner to figure out the variables and factors that have motivated “SOME” (Not all!) successful Black men to proclaim that they prefer to date White women only in the light of the many Black women who get secretly and outwardly upset at this in the light of their “perception” that there are not enough good Black men to choose from in the first place in the current dating scene. Please note that I said “perception!”
And yes, there ARE many angry Black women out here who just can’t understand why they are scratched off of the list of being a potential mate to a man to whom they have supported, loved and dealt with over the years while too many of these same men after struggling to make it in their quest for success sadly turned away their Black Sisters as someone who was not adequate enough as far as their refined status or cultural pedigree while “upgrading” to having a White woman on their arm for life.
This alone for many Black women is a big slap in the face because the fact of the matter is that Black women in America outnumber Black men in the areas of higher education and career achievement.
As you can see, this program will be of a very cerebral nature and will not be one that will tolerate any ignorant “ghettofied” hateful confrontations or race bashing as I invite people of ALL races, viewpoints and statuses to call in and participate to boldly share their views so that we ALL can put this issue to rest and answer the questions that we all have secretly asked!
