“My Father Fell in Love with an Image”

  DAVID writes: I must thank you profusely for your insightful posts. The interracial marriage discussions are of particular interest to me as a product of miscegenation. My father is a Jew and my mother Chinese. I am a college-age male living at home and my parents have been fighting recently with the looming threat […]

A Marriage of East and West

  SEBASTIEN writes from France: I have read some of the commentary regarding interracial marriage at your site and wanted to add my own perspective as my wife is of Asian origin. I married a woman who is ethnically Asian but culturally white. In Russia, there are several Far Eastern Republics originally colonised by the Tsars […]

The Stubborn Realities of Race and Marriage

  IN THIS interesting entry about interracial marriage and the movie Mississippi Masala, the reader Jane. S. described the racial dynamics in the film. She used the phrase, “race trumps everything” to explain the end result of the interactions between the movie’s African blacks and Indians. A reader was very upset by this particular comment. She […]

A Young Man’s Dilemma, cont.

  MORE COMMENTS have been added to this entry about the efforts of a young black man to find a wife. Also, in that thread, I emphatically reject a statement made by a commenter yesterday that black women are “sexually unappealing to men of all races.” I unfortunately scanned over that comment when it was […]

Conservative, Black and Looking for a Wife

  A YOUNG MAN from Massachusetts writes: I decided to write in response to the race and marriage conversation that has been taking place on your site in the past week. I am a black young man in my early twenties who has been wrestling with the idea of interracial marriage for quite some time. I get […]

Advertisers Love the Thrill of Black Man/White Woman

  JEANETTE V. writes: The man and woman in the back seat of a car is an ad for Jaguar. You can see more here. The next one is an ad I received in my e-mail hawking Photoshop actions used to enhance photos. I will not be purchasing any of that business’s products. Adriana writes: […]

Mississippi Masala

  JANE S. writes: Mississippi Masala (1992) is a movie that explores the issue of biracial marriage rather well (Spoiler alert). It’s about a man who is a third-generation Indian immigrant in Uganda. He spends his entire life in close relationships with blacks. As an attorney, he valiantly defends the rights of blacks. Then Idi Amin comes […]

Why Race and Marriage Should Be Discussed

  PAUL writes about the recent discussions here on interracial marriage and relationships: This is an extremely important topic for me and the West. I recall many years ago attending yet another wasteful business conference. I am white, and I date white women only. I met a very dark but wholly European-featured Hispanic young lady […]

Race and Love, cont.

  COMMENTS have been added to two of the recent threads on interracial couples, here and here. In the first, a reader says, in addition to arguing that there are no innate racial differences in behavior or psychology, that it is simply wrong to discourage interracial marriage for the sake of some utopian goal of preserving […]

Race and Love Reconsidered

  MICHAEL D. writes: Thank you so much for bravely discussing the topic of miscegenation on your website. Of all the subjects covered, this has had the most significant impact on me. When I first encountered your website in 2010, I was dating an Asian girl and at the time, whilst I am a conservative, […]

More on Why White Women Fall for Black Men

  THE discussion continues in the entry on the increasingly familiar phenomenon of white women pairing (“marrying” is often not the word) with black men. This phenomenon is evident in small rural towns and big cities throughout America. And yet no one ever discusses it. In the media, it is verboten to mention, let alone analyse, this […]

White Woman, Black Man: It Must Be Love

  KAREN I. writes: Your post about white women with black men brought this to mind. This is Kelly Ripa with her new co-host, Michael Strahan. Ripa, a married mother of three, apparently has no qualms about publicly embracing her new co-host. In fact, she did so with great enthusiasm on his first day, leaping […]

Pushing Diversity in the Bedroom

. HANNON writes: I have noticed over the last year or so a clearly deliberate attempt to market miscegenation to the TV viewing public. The commercial above depicts a couple in bed enjoying cream cheese, a classic American breakfast treat. Is it just a coincidence that the man (sorry, “male”) of the human pair looks […]
