Millions of black women went to church last Sunday; and chances are that 99.9% of the single ones went up to the pulpit for the pastor, deacon, or minister to ‘lay hands on them’ and pray for God’s favor in finding them a good black man. A good black man who never seems to materialize.
Additionally, Atlantans of all races who are interested in interracial dating never venture out for fear of negative comments prom passersby, retaliation from people that oppose interracial dating, and more importantly, pressure from friends and family.
A panel spearheaded by Christelyn D. Karazin, popular blogger (beyondblackwhite.com)
The panel will discuss:
• The preconceived notions people have about interracial dating that keep them single
• How and why are Black churches keeping African-American women single
• Why Black/White interracial relationships are the most fraught with tension
• How to handle your mixed relationship when your family or friends do not approve
• How to bypass the shortage of available Black men and Date Who You Want!
• How to deal with the social pressure that interracial dating attracts
• How to make yourself interracially approachable
• How character counts and why you should date who you want!
The Atlanta, Date Who You Want! discussion opens at 7:30pm with a meet & greet cocktail hour. The discussion starts at 8:00pm and ends at 10:00pm.
