Black and latina dating
I have spoken about Latinxs extensively over the past 2 weeks on FB and have commented on a few of your posts. A little background about me so you can contextualize my perspective. My mother is black and my father is a non blk Colombian.
I’m engaged to a Latino man who is 1/2 Mexican and 1/2 Spainiard. I attached a photo of myself for context so you can see I understand this subject quite well from all sides. He let the cat out of the bag and any Latinx in this country who says they’ve never had a family member express similar sentiments is either lying or comes from a rare unicorn family. I was told that my fiancées mother cried when she found out her son was dating a black girl.
My theory is GL realized he told the joke in “mixed company” and knew it wasn’t supposed to get out. She asked his family in Mexico to call him and talk sense into him.
We’ve been together 6 years now and his mom admits she was not happy at all. Comparing men of other races (dated most) I find Latinos most open to dating and marrying bw. The moms don’t like it but worship their sons and want them happy.
In a nutshell- it’s the Latinas that don’t want their sons with black women. My fiancés family loves me and would be devastated if we broke up. Latino men are passionate, sexy, family oriented, great dancers (important to me lol) and take pride in providing. Issue 3) Current immigration problems with POC and their prior relationship to bp.
That’s a long story I’ll have to go into another time.ran on Gawker earlier this month we received hundreds of comments and emails objecting to, agreeing with, or otherwise responding to Baker.This week, we're publishing some of those responses as part of a conversation about race and relationships.Thirteen years of dating boys outside my race and it took sitting down to write this essay to have the first, real conversation with my parents about interracial dating.I used to say I didn't have a type, but if we go off consistency, I do.While I've dated other races, I'm mostly attracted to black men.My eyes and heart tend to steer me in that direction.I can't pinpoint physical features or characteristics of black men because that's not only wrong, it's just not the entire case. Have I come across one that's caught my attention? I have strong Mexican men in my life, too—my father and my two brothers—that I hold close, respect, and admire.What I'm attracted to can be found in men of all races: strong arms (sense of protection), a great smile, nice build (healthy), ambitious, passionate, a sense of humor—a touch of sarcasm helps—and a kind heart. My brothers never seemed to have an opinion as to the type of men I dated, and were only concerned with how each guy treated me. My dad has always been a quiet man, and his only insertion in conversations about my dating life: "Are you happy, ?I've dated other races aside from black men—my first and only boyfriend of two years was Korean. "My parents, I should say, have never forbidden me from dating black men, or a man of any race, but their silence, more so my mother's, has been felt—it rendered each guy invisible.But I've never dated someone of my own ethnicity: Mexican. And I would say Colombian, but that courtship never blossomed into much after he came over my house and serenaded me with his acoustic guitar. Time and again, after being introduced to a black guy I was dating, my mother either let out heavy sighs or foretold my future under her breath. My dad used his seasonal, strictly temporary passport for work and came to Arizona to pick fruit.
