It does not elevate status unless he is rich and has a status of his own, otherwise, all it does is just gets you noticed in public.
People point and gossip and some even go as far as saying you’re better because you’re with a person from a different race. Do you think that dating a person from a different race changes your social status?
But at some point brothers have to stop reeling off stats about college and prison, and resolve to be something more. I've met very few (if any) black women who need a lecture on asserting themselves.
We all have a moment, as black people, where we have to stop the process of bemoaning what the world thinks of us, and start asserting that which we think of ourselves. Which is why I find this constant "plight of the black woman" bit bewildering.
When we bemoan Reggie Bush's relationship, we overstate our knowledge, understate our ignorance, highlight our lack of a serious life, and low-ball our own worth.
It's petty gossip masquerading as social commentary, and unbecoming of a "welcoming and open-minded" people.
It's totally out of whack with what I see/hear in my daily interactions.
Scott goes on to detail the history of black women, racist degradation, and beauty standards. But I think the key problem here is a common one--a kind of collectivist approach toward something as individual and private as marriage.
I admit when I saw his wedding ring, I privately hoped.
But something in me just knew he didn't marry a sister. My body showed no reaction to my inner pinch, but the sting was there, quiet like a mosquito under a summer dress. Did the reality of his relationship somehow diminish his soul's credibility? One could easily dispel the wince as racist or separatist, but that's not how I was brought up. I was taught that every man should be judged by his deeds and not his color, and I firmly stand where my grandmother left me.
The point about "African people worldwide" is a tip off.
Now I ride for my folks, but we certainly are no more "welcoming and open-minded" than any other group of people.
One thing I've come to understand, through my own relationship, is that for people who are really working at commitment, a relationship quickly ceases to be a political statement.
