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.
It’s a beautiful thing to see diversity, of course, and it’s even more encouraging to see the first black Ms. Israel.
Can’t call her “African-American” because she’s not, and you can’t really call her a Black Jew (but I guess you technically could if you wanted to use a kind of racist moniker).

Yityish Aynaw is actually of Ethiopian descent, but her story and victory is nonetheless (and some would say that her story is even all the more positive because of her journey) encouraging.
We won’t go into her story here, but it’s a news worthy story that the first black Ms. Israel has been announced. She is attractive, smart, and humble and deserving of the all the opportunity she gets.
Most people never think of this question because, quite frankly, they don’t have to. If you don’t participate in interracial dating (or marriage) you don’t have to deal with people shaking their hands, making sounds, saying degrading things (that of course don’t make any logical sense), or attempting to belittle or abuse you in some other way.

You don’t have to deal with parents treating you like a child and then punishing you to get you in line, you don’t have to deal with unseen repercussions (such as losing a job when the boss sees your wife or husband), and so many other forms racism takes in America.

I’m not current on women’s basketball, although I’m sure I’d like it if I watched a game.
Based on what this article states it seems entirely reasonable to make Jayda’s point that just because a sista couldn’t (or didn’t, for whatever reason) do the job previously up to expectations, it’s shallow and ultimately racist to conclude that based on what black woman’s job performance we don’t want to consider hiring another black woman for the same job again.
Just a woman as a woman.
One has nothing to do with the other, just as one black woman is not the same as another you’d find somewhere else. Grouping people together by how they look and their physical phenotype is racism.
