Debunking the myths of black women, especially black american women, was more than necessary. Debunking the myths of interracial relationships was extremely necessary as well. I have befriended american black women (I'm a black woman from Europe) and they are nothing like what is shown on television. I think it is a great thing that black women in America are encouraged to free themselves from that bondage. Women need men, women love men, a man is a man is a man. I don't think any woman has to justify why she dates who she dates. I commend the author for all the information provided through serious research. That was more than I expected. It's not just about her personal experience, which was interesting, it is also educational. I found myself nodding my head all the time as I went through the pages. I can't believe the double standards are still harsh on black women there like that. I say, bring home a white/asian/latino/indian/etc boy ladies!

Great read!

I was floored by some of the info in this book. I purchased 3 book about interracial dating because I am interested, this lady goes deep, she is bring it and I'm glade she really open my eyes. i have learned so much from her. There is a lot of interracial marriages in my family my oldest daughter is married to a white guy, my middle will only date white guys. i was married to a black doctor for years but i was very unhappy. I want a different experience so i am branching out my daugthers think I am cray for reading up on dating white men, but I am glade I did it open my eyes and this book has erase some of my fears but it brought to light insecurities I do have about myself she very clever.

This was yet another quick and interesting read by Karyn Folan. This book was written to get Black women to get over their issues of dating interracially (specifically, dating White guys) and to just open up their options.

Folan starts out well with using statistics and debunking myths about Black men who allegedly had Black women's interests in mind (for instance, she mentions how some Black male activists were raping Black women as "practice" for raping White women), but I think the book loses some of its steam from the middle to the end when she relies too heavily on excerpts from bloggers' blogs (such as Evia who runs "Black Female Interracial Marriage," a blog I've read in the past and think tends to border on the extremist side, for lack of a better term) and anecdotes from the same interracial couples (the issue of Greg's Cypriot parents disowning him for marrying Jacquetta, a Black woman, was repeated quite a few times) which started to come off as filler more than substance. Folan did interview experts for this book and in the Notes section at the end legitimate sources were cited, but I was disappointed to see that some of the sources were Wikipedia pages.

I did like reading the anecdotes of the couples used, though I think more people should've been interviewed to avoid the repetition noted above. Singles interested in dating interracially should've been interviewed to add to the diversity of the stories.

The reason why this book focused on the coupling of Black women and White men, as opposed to Black women and men of other races, is because there seems to be an animosity from Black women towards White men when asked to consider dating interracially. This book is targeted to them to get these women to stop worrying about petty things such as White men's genitalia color and size, to stop worrying about what their friends and family would think, and to stop clinging to superficial connections such as skin color.

Contrary to popular belief, this book is not about demonizing Black men - far from it. Folan notes that bad men come in all races, and warns women to not only keep their options open to dating a man of any race, but to use common sense to avoid those sketchy types as well.

Above-noted flaws aside, this book is a great read and I was already one of those Black women who dated interracially. I hope those who are still on the fence with dating interracially will give this book and the act of dating interracially a chance.

Disclosure. I am a 55 year old college educated AA woman who has been very happily married to the love of my life for the past 13 years. He is white, 68 years old also college educated and blissfully married to me. We have the standard of living and quality of life we want and have worked hard for. We truly enjoy or life together.

Mrs. Langhorn-Folen nails it. Approaching the arguments that too many AA woman use to dismiss the possibility of finding a loving relationship with a man of another race. The author uses an attorney's skill to analyze the facts and puts forth a sound argument for for AA women to consider expanding their dating pool to include quality men of all races. This book is well written and stays away from ranting against and denigrating Black men. (Wouldn't it be nice if Black men returned the favor?)

Ladies the facts and numbers are what they are and sitting around alone and waiting patiently "praying on it" won't change them. All that does is limit your options and that is silly. I agree with the person who commented previously that AA women have the option to marry out simply because they can. Further allowing people and institutions, who really do not have AA women and their interest in the forefront, to dictate how you live your life is also ridiculous. Sorry Ladies but the reality is that those same people and institutions who don't have your back really don't want you taking your time, talent and lets face it deep pockets any where. Their survival depends on you keeping those dollars your working hard,alone, to earn flowing into their hands.

Now, realistically most AA women will continue to be "Ladies in waiting" for the rest of their lives. It is always safe to run with the herd. Limiting but safe and that is fine....for them. But for the rest of us who know that there is a much better life to be had this book is an excellent primer to get you the life you want. It just takes the courage to put yourself first and value your worth. Believe me there is a man out there who will see it the way you do and want very much to share your life.
