I think that at a deep level, she truly DOES, MrAnderson.<quoted text>
Why wait until you're old and not much of a catch to come to this realization of self?
I'm not saying that it's too late for anyone, but why did this just dawn on you after you gave your good years to a non black man?
Do you regret your IR relationship?
Is she going to admit it? Probably not. Almost NO parent (at least in American culture) is going to say that he or she regrets having their son or daughter. That is like heresy among parents.
And I'm sure that Shalimarr's little girl is the light of her life and makes Mama so proud. And yet Mama still must come to terms with the fact that she is now the head of a broken family - and a family which almost NO *successful Black male* in the UK wants to join.
There are definitely Black males who want to sleep with Shalimarr, I'm sure of that. But she is clearly not getting serious interest from any successful or brilliant Black surgeons, architects, bankers -- or anyone who meets the exalted standards she has set for a future Black husband. She spends way too much time on Topix-AA for that to be the case.
This is not an enviable situation.
