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
