BOOK BACK COVER:
Have you ever wondered what it is like for an African American woman or a white man to date or marry interracially?
If so, this book will provide some insights.
Black women are the one group of women least likely to marry outside of their race. There are many reasons for this, some explored within this book; nonetheless, romantic relationships between black women and white men are becoming more commonplace.
This book contains vignettes on the lives of black women who are dating, married to, or divorced from white men. Black women and white men in interracial relationships were interviewed between 2014 and 2017 to learn how they met and how their relationships progressed. These forty interviews offer thought-provoking insights on the lives of those who are willing to cross the racial divide in pursuit of personal happiness.
Very interesting read and I appreciated the various perspectives from her participants, especially the white male. Given the current climate of human relations I would have never thought while males were attracted to asian females.
Bethany Beckham, Contains great relationship advice
Illuminating in many ways, shatters myths and provided insights to me (a white woman) concerning college(+) educated asian women. Further, as an attorney working in the area of employment discrimination, I have addressed instances where employees felt discriminated or harassed because they were in interracial relationships.
Mario Craigen, Powerful Book
This is a scholarly and thoughtful exploration of the topic. It is strengthened by the objective presentation of the personal accounts of white men and asian women in serious interracial relationships. Particularly illuminating are the facts presented on the shortage of dating and marriage options available to asian females if they date exclusively within their own race.
