Black men who date white women
Thank you for putting the important issue of interracial marriage in the spotlight (NOW, November 10-16).
I would, however, like to flag the fact that Black women were excluded from this piece. The only mention of them was by “JJ,” the white woman in a relationship with a Black man who is quoted as saying that, in Toronto “A certain demographic [young women of colour] give me a little stink eye, and another demographic [young white men] give it to JJ.”
Really? So your piece read by thousands of people chose to frame Black women as bitter and envious of Black men who date white women? I can tell you as a young Black woman that Black men who date white women aren’t my problem. Susan Geria Toronto
