What do tennis star Serena Williams, U. Kamala Harris and businesswoman Mellody Hobson have in common? But despite these real-world examples of interracial relationships, a Pew Research Center report found that black women are the least likely group of women to marry, especially outside of their own race. Despite this, Judice said race was not an important factor for most of the people she interviewed for the book. Black women are the only group of women in America who cannot take for granted that if they seek marriage to a black man that there will be an ample supply of available men from which to choose. It is almost like the plight of black women looking for eligible partners is the elephant in the room. Between issues related to skin color, hair texture, and low self-esteem, it is more difficult for black women to talk about it publicly to draw attention to the problem. I am tired of meeting so many women who have suffered in silence and simply given up on having someone love them for who they are. I am writing this book because I have seen first-hand the sadness many black women live with who have never experienced a fulfilling romantic relationship.

Jesus and His apostles taught that we must respect and show compassion for all people of God’s creation without regard to artificial distinctions like race and nationality. In His Parable of the Good Samaritan Luke , Jesus told of a Samaritan man who was kind to a Jewish man even thought they were enemies of different religions, nationalities and racial backgrounds.
At the end, Jesus tells us, ” Go and do likewise. You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. NIV, Galatians
By Ian Zelaya. Like many brands, dating apps have posted social media statements and pledged donations in support of BlackLivesMatter since global protests began last week in response to the killings of unarmed Black people in America, including George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25; Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Ky.

Inside the dimly lit room, a group of well-dressed men have turned up to try their luck at walking away with a new connection or two.
Tonight looks like any regular event, except there’s just one minor detail – it’s customised date night for Asian women. Shaun Comerford, general manager from Fast Impressions said race-based events are really popular.
If someone asked you to describe your identity to them, where would you begin? Would it come down to your skin color or your nationality? What about the language you speak, your religion, your cultural traditions or your family’s ancestry? This bewildering question often pushes people to separate their identities into two parts: race versus ethnicity. But what do these two terms actually mean, and what’s the difference between race and ethnicity in the first place? These words are often used interchangeably, but technically, they’re defined as separate things.

The modern African state is the product of Europe, not Africa. To attempt at this late date to return to ancestral identities and resources as bases for building the modern African nation would risk the collapse of many countries. At the same time, to disregard ethnic realities would be to build on loose sand, also a high-risk exercise.
Is it possible to consolidate the framework of the modern African state while giving recognition and maximum utility to the component elements of ethnicities, cultures, and aspirations for self-determination? Ethnicity is more than skin color or physical characteristics, more than language, song, and dance. Deprive a people of their ethnicity, their culture, and you deprive them of their sense of direction or purpose.
Traditionally, African societies and even states functioned through an elaborate system based on the family, the lineage, the clan, the tribe, and ultimately a confederation of groups with ethnic, cultural, and linguistic characteristics in common. These were the units of social, economic, and political organizations and inter-communal relations.
In the process of colonial state-formation, groups were divided or brought together with little or no regard to their common characteristics or distinctive attributes. They were placed in new administrative frameworks, governed by new values, new institutions, and new operational principles and techniques. The autonomous local outlook of the old order was replaced by the control mechanisms of the state, in which the ultimate authority was an outsider, a foreigner.
Dating has always come with challenges. But the advent of dating apps and other new technologies — as well as the MeToo movement — presents a new set of norms and expectations for American singles looking for casual or committed relationships, according to a recent Pew Research Center survey. Among them, most say they are dissatisfied with their dating lives, according to the survey, which was conducted in October — before the coronavirus pandemic shook up the dating scene.
