It’s time to have an honest, open discussion about interracial relationships.No, I don’t mean gabbing about the latest drama between Olivia and Fitz.If she wants to be married, have children, etc., the numbers just aren’t in her favor to remain exclusive to Black men.Why is it “problematic” to open yourself up to other men who might love you?The internet has been an absolute boon for people who are open to dating interracially.

I would say that if you’re the type of person who is overly concerned with what other people think about your life, then interracial dating is not for you.
