Covering up interracial dating
Greedy brats like these could sour one on having kids. Some joker at one of New York City’s greatest cultural institutions tweeted a photo of a big-bottomed statue that’s more than 6,500 years old and 8.4 inches tall.Its booty is a dead ringer for that of reality TV star Kim Kardashian, who displayed her heinie in all its naked and oiled glory on the cover of Paper magazine’s winter issue.“Here at the Met, we have artworks that can #Break The Internet too!
She said, “I’m excited about” the Web-based matchup service.
“It will be fun — and I’ll get some dates.” But two days after we spoke last week, a WNBC spokeswoman informed me that Reid no longer planned to accept the dating service’s challenge because she was “busy.” A friend told me that she’d changed her mind about it. The answer may be found in the dating service’s name: Interracial Dating
Reid had talked about the challenge on the radio and publicly accepted the service’s offer.
She agreed to be featured in a news release announcing that she would go on a series of blind dates with four New York-area bachelors of all races, including African-Americans. In this day and age, some people are vehemently against the idea of a woman of color going out with men of other backgrounds.
But Karazin does not believe that black women should be limited by race when choosing partners. Skin color should not matter when it comes to love.
A judge has ordered the divorced parents of Caitlyn Ricci, 21, of New Jersey to fork over ,000 to pay for tuition for each year she attends Philadelphia’s Temple University — although she moved into her paternal grandparents’ house two years ago and doesn’t talk to her folks. This is like the case of Rachel Canning, also of New Jersey, who moved away from home and took her parents to court this year to shake them down for tuition money and other expenses before dropping her lawsuit.About twice the number of black women attend college as black men, according to the National Coalition of Black Civic Participation.And the Pew Research Center determined that black men were more than six times as likely as white men to be serving time in prisons and jails in 2010.Reid, who is African-American, had opened herself up to the possibility of going out with men who are not.Except for one white guy, she has dated only within her race.Yet criticism — some of it hurled online, some of it in Karazin’s face — for “marrying out” can be cruel. “Black men date or marry interracially at more than double the level women do,” she said. They can date anyone they want to — black women, white women.” The purpose of the dating challenge, she said, was to expand a woman’s choices.
