Right.
I know I'm going to get a lot of flack for making this thread, and this probably will not end well, but I'm not here to win any popularity contests.

Before I go into this, I will say that I have nothing against multi/bi-racial people, and I believe that they have as much right to exist as anyone else. In fact I have mixed race cousins who I love very much. However, I am sure we all know that many people go into IR for the wrong reasons, and this can have an effect on any children produced as a result.

Over the last few years, communication between men and women seems to have broken down somewhat. This has occurred across all races, however it seems black people have been affected the worst by it. Running to other races will not solve the issue. In fact, it will make matters worse.

Another thing is, IR has increased over the last couple of decades due to media trends. I can remember a time when whites didn't even want to be seen TALKING to a black person (unless it was for business purposes), but since hip-hip videos became more popular, and IR couples were shown on TV, that changed. At the same time, black couples are shown on TV less and less. Nowadays on the rare occasions you do see a bm/bw couple on TV, they are ALWAYS unhappy. The relationship always ends, then, hey presto, a white partner comes along and saves the day. This gives out a message that blacks should not be together, which is wrong. Yet white, and other couples are shown having perfectly healthy relationships with their own. Unfair? I think so.

Media trends are not a good base for any kind of relationship. At the moment, biracial celebs are favored over blacks, but what if that were to change? What if suddenly mixed babies are not "trendy" any more?? It is a little known fact that here in the UK, there are many mixed race children in the care system, mostly dumped there by white mothers who realised they coudn't cope once their "Mandingo Fantasy" did not work out.

A popular myth being advertised is that "IR will end all racism". Sorry, but that is bull sh!t. You only have to look at Brazil to know that is not the case. I actually think that is propaganda that people use to try and get black people to do it, because I notice nobody tries to say this to any other races. IR, ever since slavery, has been used AGAINST black people, why should that change now? You see, we black people have seen this before. During slavery, black women were encouraged to have children with the white masters so they would have lighter skin, straighter hair, better chance of freedom when the master died. This did not work, because the mixed race children were more often than not, enslaved themselves, some were used purely for sex and breeding. Likewise, there were a small portion of black men who were encouraged to marry indentured Irish women, as this would "help the plight of black women. Again, it did nothing to help blacks at all. So, we have seen all this before. Nothing new.

Call me paranoid if you will, but I believe there IS a worldwide campaign to stop black men and black women from getting together and progressing together. This may have something to do with the powerful black family in the White House, that would explain a lot of things. In the UK, hardly anyone even acknowledges black couples. This article just about sums it up:

So, all you bm/bw bashers better wake up, and see what you are doing. You're just playing into the white racists hands...

So, I don't know how it is in London but here there is too many OOW babies left by BM who refuse to support these babies or the Baby Mama..

I think as this sad reality is whats causing BW seeking Non-black men.

They grew seeing their mom struggle and refuse to fall into that living breathing stereo-type.

If anything BM need to step up and start taking responsibility for their actions, stop diddling Tyrone down the street while YO baby is hungry and your baby mama needs support financially..SMH

Remember Rap videos are not reality, either is some fantasy about Blacks taking over the US or Afrocentric histories nor is all these conspiracy theories you mofos cling to.>SMH.

I invite all BM, hell, ALL MEN(If you are in need)Strike up a conversation with KennyinBmore he will give the adivce you need to be a successful, positive role-model for your children.

BW are fed up..I don't blame them.

I don't know what is 'new' or not for you, but you definitely don't have a clue about Brazil & Brazilian history. Don't compare Brazil w/ UK or even the Caribbeans, because it's different. What you said about 'mixed women as sex objects' is also not true. Often African women HAD FREELY CHOSEN themselves to marry Europeans as a way to help their families in Africa, some fell in a genuine love, some decided to move away from the slavery during the colonial times, some have married maroon European/Amerindian/African men, etc. In Brazil there was a lack of women during the first period of colonization, & there was a lot of African & Amerindian women, so they have intermixed especially among poor European settlers & freed African & Amerindian women. Again, you had it wrong.

Some women like light-skinned men, some don't. Some men like dark-skinned women, some don't. As for the racism, or in general discrimination. No, it'll never go away. Even in Africa among different dark tribes there was always racism. IR is about freely choosing & mating w/o any pressure from the society. If you can't a dude/chick in your village, move to the next one, & the next one, until you finally find the right woman/man for you. It's how it has always been among humans.
