Dark Girls Documentary on Netflix

Dark Girls Documentary on Netflix

The documentary film “Dark Girls” is finally on NetFlix, and for those who don’t know what the term refers to or what the documentary is about, it refers to the fact that, quite simply, racism is alive and well and being actively promulgated within the black community itself. Black men are statistically abandoning black women as fast as they can, by either unconscious (or conscious) lifestyle choices or simply refusing to date them. Black women on the other hand, for the most part, are still not yet open to interracial dating that their male counterparts have no issue with whatsoever and can’t embrace fast enough.

And of course this varies from US region, city to city, and state to state. Some countries are blatantly racist (throwing bananas at soccer players is not cool wouldn’t you agree), while some are more open and liberal with interracial dating. Some US states you still wouldn’t be advised to openly embrace interracial dating (areas of the south), and others are fine with it, such as New York. But the issue of black girls not valuing their own inherent beauty or femininity is problematic to be sure.

Anyhow, Patti recently shared her views with a geeky reporter and here is the link to the piece.

Single and Living Fab: Jacque Reid talks with author of ‘Why All Black Women Should Marry Jewish Men’

Dr. Nazaree Hines-Starr is an interesting lady. Not only is she living an unconventional life, daring to date “outside her race,” marry a Jewish man, have a biracial child, but she’s got the fortitude to write a book on the topic and interview on her book and belief that all black women should simply date and marry Jewish men.

Are Black women giving up on Black men?

Are black women giving up on black men?

Not from what I can see, or from the simple statistics that would seem to communicate an actual reverse trend: more black men are dating white women then they are black women. But anyway, here’s the link to an article by the folks at the New Pittsburgh Courier Online asking the question.
