Regina King Tells Black Women To Not Date Only Black

Published by Clay Cane on Friday, May 7, 2010 at 8:55 am.

reginaking2.jpgLegendary actress, Regina King, has some advice for her single, Black ladies — date outside of their race! Interracial dating is a hot button topic again and according to King’s blog entry on VIBE.com, Black women are the least likely to date outside of their race. White, Asian, Latin, or other are more than happen to get down with the swirl.

King says:

I have about five Black friends who date outside of their race. But all the other friends of mine, it’s either they vocally say that they won’t or every time an opportunity comes up for them to date outside of their race, there’s some excuse why it’s not going to work. They never really say it’s because he’s White, or because he’s Spanish or something like that. It’ll be more like, Well, you know he works at such and such, and our schedules don’t match.’ But we’ll know really what it is. It’s ’cause he’s White.

She continued:

I think Black women need to open up. A lot of Black women still carry a lot of pain when they see Black men with women who aren’t Black and that’s really unfortunate that that could make us so upset. It has to do with self esteem. With women on a whole, what a man thinks about us means so much to us. Does he think my hair is right? Does he think I look right? Does he think my ass is big enough? Does he think my t*tties are big enough?

King makes some good points. We live in a world where there all so many variations of brown people — unlike it was forty years ago. Now, we live in a world where Black folks who were considered Black twenty years ago are now “mixed” or “multi-racial.” Anyone who is finding strife in dating, one of the best solutions is to expand your horizons, not lower your standards — but expand.

Do you agree with Regina or should Black women make men Black their priority?

GOD IS THE GIVER OF ALL THINGS. HE KNOWS WHATS BEST FOR YOU AND GUIDES YOU THE RIGHT DIRECTION. SO IF YOU HAVENT FOUND A WHITE GUY THAT RIGHT FOR YOU ITS BECAUSE YOUR NOT PRETTY, ITS BECASUE GOD DOESNT WANT YOU HAVE A WHITE GUY. LADIES AND GENTLEMAN THIS SITUATION IS BEYOND YOUR CONTROL. JUST LIVE IT UP TO GOD. GOD IS GREAT.

i do not like to date any man outside of my race. of i am a black girl but i refuse to date any man that is not black. to me it’s all about the breed and the whole genetic makeup of white people. they are not the same and our natures are totally different. naturally i just can’t be with a white man. to me black smell better than they do. black smell like banana bread and white men smell like onions.

I am sorry for what I am about to say, but I have to keep it real. Sandra sounds like she is a very young. When you have gone through a few more years of waiting on the right black man, and come up with nothing, then you will realize that life is too short to pass up anyone that might be good for you no matter what race they are. To me no race is any better than the other and I believe that because its in the way you were raised. You have to be taught the value of money and that you have to work hard for the things you want. If you don’ t have that understanding, then you will never have anything. You can have anything anyone else has if you work for it. There are no differences.

she is right, i already got that planned

OMG!!! If a woman wants to date out side of her race, so be it.. I am from the south and that is something we do not see a lot of. White men are not into black women. If they are, it would be behind close doors. I am happily married to a black man and he has white friends that make comments when he is not around, but what ’s so funny, they still date their own race. My husband’s white friends tell him that I am gorgeous, and my husband tell them he knows that. Regina King has to understand don’t no White man want a sister that don’t have any money and if she is not a STAR, then we can hang out to dry. Same thing with some of the NFL, NBA brothers, they don’t even want a sister, even though she work hard everyday, just don’t want us.. We are not good enough for their money… I LOVE MY BLACK HUSBAND, because he truly see the woman in me…



Sham God Said on

To suggest that there isn’t a difference between races, is really being naive. That’s not to say sister’s shouldn’t find love and hold on to it. If you find love and he’s a different race so be it. However there are realities and the black experience is just that a black experience and you have to be black to fully understand that.



keverno Said on

It’s ironic that this topic came up. I have never dated outside of my race as an African American woman, and I recently told my 17-year-old son that Mama is going outside of the box. Hell….90% of our black men are doing it all day long, hey way not.

This is pretty much the same thing I’ve been telling my EDUCATED CAREER HAVING BROTHERS to do. I mean seeing how the GANGSTER LIFESTYLE is the most preferred by BLACK WOMEN between the ages 18 to 40. WHY ELSE DO YOU THINK MOST BLACKMEN DROPOUT OF SCHOOL??? To be like the fellas you are BIRTHING BABIES BY (Tupac, Biggie, 50cent, T.I., Li’l Wayne)!!! Not trying to PUT ALL THE BLAME on the LADIES. Certainly the fellas have just as much of the SIN to carry, if not MORE. But YOUR PHYSICAL AFFECTIONS for such MEN(using this pronoun for them sparringly) added to the FIRE. Along with TURNING your noses up to us CHURCH GOING EDUCATED CAREER SEEKING AND LANDING ONE BROTHAS did not help much either. I wish I received a PENNY for everytime it happened, I would be RICH enough to pay the NATIONAL DEBT and still have MONEY TO BURN. Quit giving yourselves to OUR COMMUNITY BACKSTABBERS and maybe they’ll go get educations!!!



vanessa Said on

all i have to say is that we are sad black people ,with so much self hate.when we do get another man from a different race he is not going to be top notch ,everytime i see mixed couples they are both low class .not good looking ,and the black man and white woman it’s all about sex ,we need to love us because they don’t.



tiffany Said on

WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH THE PPL WHO ARE STUCK ON RACE AND COLOR??? ISNT THAT WHAT WE HAVE FOUGHT FOR ALL THESE YEARS AND ARE STILL FIGHTING FOR?? WHO CARES IF WE MIX AND MATCH..THAT IS WHAT MAKES US MORE BEAUTIFUL..NOT THE IMAGE BUT THE LOVE AND ACCEPTANCE OF ALL PPL NO MATTER WHAT COLOR,OR ORIGIN..TO EVOLVE,GET ALONG AND APPRECIATE ALL THATS DIFFERENT!.”REALLY” ALL OF THIS SLAVE MENTALITY! WE R QUICK TO JUDGE THE KKK BUT WE HAVE ALLOWED THEM TO PLACE THIS HATE ON US EQUALLY…BY HATING WHAT WE DNT LOOK LIKE OR UNDERSTAND..DISGUSTED..LOVE ALL! THATS WHAT WE NEED TO TEACH OUR KIDS TO APPRECIATE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN ALL AND TO LOVE OURSELVES NO MATTER WHAT WE GO THRU IN LIFE!



virgolady Said on

LADIES!!!!! Listen…….Love comes in ALL COLORS, even your own. NEVER let anyone (or a movie) tell you who to love. The deciding factor lies in the two of you, and no one else. It’s simple………follow your heart and you can’t lose. Common sense is still the SIXTH sense!



Talmadge L. Darden Said on

In this United States that I know about it is not colorblind society; therefore, many dynamics play into dating outside the race. Knowing and loving who you are first will enhance the importance of who you may date. There are some pros and some cons for interracial dating that one should factor into their equation as well. Dating someone as the same race has some pros and some cons as well. The most important question is what makes you happy and fulfills you because at the end of day does the person who give you the things that you need or want to feel complete as woman is the one you are going to be with regardless of race or sexual preference. What is done in the dark will be shown in the light, so never do anything out shame or regret because someone get played or hurt in the end. As an 53 year old, African-American male, I definitely see just as many women dating each other; interracial dating is just a buzz word. There has always been interracial dating whether by choice or by force. Many blessings of happiness regardless of the choice you make in dating! Peace and joy,Talmadge L. Darden
