5 Reasons Black Women Should Not Give Up On Black Men.

1. They Can RelateBlack men and black women have a commonality that mixed couples do not have. Not to pose anything against interracial couples, but black men and women have worries and concerns that only affect the black race. They can deeply understand one another’s fears and apprehensions that only the black race experiences.2. Our Sons and Daughters Need YouOur daughters need their fathers to love them better than any man ever could. When fathers are there for their daughters they face a…See More

Top 10 Myths About Black America – A Must Read

AFRICANGLOBE – Black America, If you haven’t read the works of Chancellor Williams of George James, you may still be amongst the thinking Blacks who realize that misinformation about the standing of Africans and Black America has been the order of the day for centuries. But if you are a dead brained ignoramus who passes on the latest piece of mythology about Black America, you should do the race a service and either educate yourself or solder your ignorant lips shut. Black mythology is one of…See More

Is dating and marriage between blacks throughout the African Diaspora the future of black relationships? In my opinion it is and here is the reason why: It is no secret that black men and women in America are having difficulties in recent years in terms of what we expect from one another, and dating prospects within our community. Indeed there have been numerous discussions held on the internet, TV, in movies and magazines on this very subject. Typical in these debates will be statistics showing the number of African American men in prisons, the number of homosexuals in the African American community; single mothers raising children without the support of any male figure; the ratio of educated black women compared to that of educated black men; and arguments about the so-called shortage of black males.

In almost all of these debates, choosing to date different cultures is a proposed solution to the perceived shortage of desirable dating prospects in the African American community. By different cultures, the authors and participants of these debates are almost always refering to interracial dating. Whether it be whites, hispanics, or asians; the implication is that black people can not find differences of beliefs and experience among our own. Nothing could be further from the truth! It is not necessary to go outside of the race to explore different cultures and attitudes towards dating, family, and male-female relations. Black people are literally all over the world. Occupying over 50 different countries in Africa alone, as well as countries in Europe, the Caribbean, South America, and Canada. Each country has its own unique culture, beliefs, and value system.

This website was created to celebrate these types of relationships, and to recognize the potential they have to strengthen black families throughout the world. The potential and promise of African Diasporan relationships is that they allow black people to broaden their knowledge and experience of different cultures while simultaneously strengthening the bonds of black communities. African Diasporan relationships gives black people to opportunity to not only build bridges but to create communities. In short African Diasporan relationships are the future of black relationships....Let's Discuss!

Black Love is Under Attack

Posted by africandiasporan on September 13, 2011 at 5:20am 5 Comments

This is my 2nd blog in as many weeks, which is definitely a record for me.  Today’s blog was inspired by a story on a new book by Ralph Richard Banks, a stanford law professor who is encouraging African American women to go outside their race to find marriage.  Mr. Banks campaign message is "Don't marry down. Marry out".  While the book is new, the argument is not.  The author cites the same doom and gloom statistics which dominates the media (and demonizes black men) before making his ultimate… Continue

beyondblackwhite.com: sending mixed messages to African American Women!

Hello everyone, I hope you enjoyed your labor day weekend.  It has been awhile since I wrote my last blog; however, this weekend I came across an issue that I felt was in need of discussion.  While reading the news, I came across a story link:  Love & Marriage: 7 Signs You’re the “Obsessive Type”.   Out of curiosity I clicked on the story and came across some beautiful black couples, and some practical advice for black women.  It was obvious that the author must have been African…

Racism is the not the biggest threat to the prosperity of the African American community in 2010, the breakdown of the traditional family is!

Posted by africandiasporan on March 24, 2010 at 7:00am 2 Comments

Recently I engaged in an intense debate with the founder of a popular black website. This debate centered around two threads dealing with the breakdown of the traditional family. I commented on both threads. Speaking on the value of having children within wedlock, and the need for women in the African American community to choose better quality men. The founder of the site disagreed. Although in her disagreement with me, she stated that was looking for a solution….any solution….because this… Continue

I can't take credit for the title of this blog. This title was inspired by the reason one of our new members gave for joining this website.

I was particular encouraged by this member coming to our site, because indeed.....African Diasporan Relationships is committed to preserving as well as… Continue
