    I would say that the person that is in that type of relationship would be at odds with his/her self, on one hand the assimilator and on the other pro-black, the question then becomes to who do you hold your alliance? your white mate or your own blackness. this is just my opinion lol

    I live in Germany and am married to a German since 1980.My being married to her doesn´t cause me to hate,or be indifferent to Black people or our "causes",and I couldn´t if i wanted to.We think that the racism and prejudice we experience is unique to American,but Africans and people of color go thru almost the exact same things we do in Germany,France,Holland,Denmark to name a few.The only difference is that for every bigot that gets loud in these countries,there is an equal number of people that will get just as loud and say"this (racism) is not the answer to our problems.

    My two cents...lets whites do their own thing and let us do ours.
    In regards to business, yeah sure....blacks and white can work together for the benefit of their communities and even socially, have a laugh should they click outside the realm of work but romantically, stick with your own IMO....otherwise you create for yourself a conflict of interest.

    Your allegiance should always be, must always be unequivocally to your African people.

    Thanks...peace and love

    UNLESS YOU PROVE IT WRONG EVERYDAY OF YOUR LIFE, like HARRY BELAFONTE,& RICHARD PRYOR{2 Unapologetic WARRIORS of OUR STRUGGLE}have done ESPECIALLY in their PRIME....then YOU ARE DEFINITELY A LIVING CONTRADICTION in MY opinion.

    To Soul deep3:
    are you implying that I´m "suspect" because I married white?? That I can´t be as "commited"??Even if I was to "turn",I´ve had plenty of opportunities to "prove" myself with idiots who tried to walk over me because of my skin color.Although I´ve always tried to live my life in a way where I wouldnt give Black people a bad name,especially brothers,I think I´ve done a good job of proving myself.Try and walk over me once,and that´s enough.Not a "tough guy",not a punk either.

    On another note,there are plenty of people here in Europe interested in Black history and culture because of our music and the few films seen(Rosewood,The Color Purple etc).But I try to stay informed for ME!

    Reproduction and life sharing with the people who are part of a system that was and is used to oppress our people overtly and covertly isn't Pro-Black.

    Maybe Pro-Fraud or Pro-Confusion or even Pro-Mentally Ill, but not Pro-Black.

    A girl I use to date, her mother was white. Her father is a man of a historically black Fraternity. Alpha Phi Alpha. He still fights for he cause and from my knowledge he isn' in any kind of conflict with himself. I can't say that I would or would not date a white woman. But the girl I use to date was inbetween. A part of both cultures. Would I be untrue to myself if I stayed with her.
