    I heard it said, "How can you fight against the enemy when they are sharing the same bed as you?"

    Is there a conflict of interest?

    Can one be in an ir and still work unapologetically towards the liberation of black folks?

    What about the non-black companion. Do you think they put themselves at risk?

    ...Thoughts?

    Brother Raptor, this is a great thread, thanks!
    My thoughts are that when a White woman is chosen, by a Black man to be his mate, and he is a fighter for the cause... this woman has ascribed to his way, beliefs and thoughts. That her love for him rules over all else. She sees, feels and wants what he does.
    If she's doesn't, then the brother has been blinded, more than uneqully yoked and is no longer effective in the struggle anymore. Now I love to see Black with Black, but that wasn't the question. See, I believe love conquers all!!!

    I feel you MsInterpret.

    I will try to encourage participants to stay on subject matter.

    This is not an indictment (or witchhunt) on those who choose to be in ir's.

    We are clear that what we want to discuss are the prospects for conflict (or no), of such a relationship in regards to 'the liberation'.

    We do not want to get into all the "yt devil" talk.

    Iono Butterfly. Do you know of any examples of where the white is on the same page as their "problk" spouse.
    I just don't believe there's a white person in the world that is so in love w/ a black person that he/she will help them destroy their white privilege.

    Bro, we shouldn't even have to have a "witchhunt" or "indictment", because why in the UNIVERSE would any negroe laying up with our enemies for thousands of years,and engaged in all out oppression and suppression of black love,unity,and power which produces survival, be anywhere near black folks at all.....this is my last comment on this here, because this the type of thread, that will definitely get me banned, if i go any further......i've already run into negroes on here who are in love with white people and mixing, and i'm makin sure to stay well clear of em......

    But the answer to your question is undebateble....if anyone debates or tries to backdoor this, then they are not for the interest and survival of black people anywhere.

    Only thing that needs to be read:

    I do know of couples where the wife has chosen to live the husband's lifestyle. I don't know that her privileges were disbanned. She probably lives the best of both worlds. Coming and going in both but not against her husbands will or desire. If he chose to ask her not to participate in her world of privilege, I know she would honor his wish. He is treated like no other Black man I ever met, including my late husband. And I know he appreciated our union.

    NO, before anyone ask... Im a true, sister in every sense of the word.

    Most of us would be surprised as to whom of our Black men are married to White women. And are very successful (in our viewpoint) in their professions and respected. So, if this is true, does it not mean that their spouses are in their corner all the way?
