So I decided to talk to interracial relationship expert, Christelyn Karazin, Brand Ambassador for Interracial Dating Central.com, who gave her thoughts on the subject and why she is an interracial dating advocate particularly for Black women.Unlike other dating experts, hers is a success story. Here’s what she had to say: Candice: Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and how you’ve become an advocate for interracial couples?He concludes that "single is the new black", which poses serious problems for the African American community.He recommends that black women open themselves up to be willing to enter serious relationships with men of other races and backgrounds, and he argues that it will improve black men and women alike.
This blog will be devoted to examining historical and current issues related to dating, marriage, and divorce between African Americans and whites, with a focus on black women and white men. Supreme Court invalidated any laws prohibiting interracial marriages in the Loving vs. ‘Loving Day’ is celebrated in several places across the country and my blog celebrates this decision, too.
Christelyn: As with most advocacy, my motivation comes from having my own experiences.
When I started dating my husband back in 1999, there was absolutely no place, discussion or support for Black women who were dating and/or married interracially.
She says a lot of black men are not marriage material, so black women should date white guys.
