By Petronella Wyatt. They say they saw it coming, those celebrity tittle-tattles who follow every whisper of Hollywood gossip. The glorious Technicolor love boat of Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas has, allegedly, been navigating the rocks for some time. But I disagree. Theirs was a marriage that was doomed from the start. And Catherine is certainly not alone in falling victim to the age-gap blues. Yesterday, it was announced that singer Bryan Ferry had separated from his second wife, Amanda, after a mere 19 months of wedded bliss. Last week, Clint Eastwood, 83, parted from his wife, Dina, And back in June, Rupert Murdoch, 82, announced he was divorcing his year-old wife, Wendi.

What do they do? Start rolling their eyes, tsk-tsking; shaking their heads in disgust. And some sisters who are bold enough, actually verbally attack right there.
Or just get up and move away. Others really do begin to miss being with Black women, the culture recognition that Black women have, as well as the joy of just being in a good relationship with someone they can relate to on all levels.
“There are good black women out there you know,” she says to me. This is the beginning of a short conversation I have with a stranger on the.
My cousins can be split into two groups: Ones who grew up with weaves and skin lighteners and ones who needed sunscreen and haircuts. Our family is a classic case of women and the black men who left them versus the white men who stayed. I remember being 6 and slapping my white uncle in the face to figure out why his face turned bloodred.
I wondered how men with such delicate bodies seemed to be the only ones who could endure the storm. When my cousin on the all-black side birthed a baby girl whose father had become abusive, we took a long ride to a shopping mall. She was looking to me for advice on raising a fatherless child, considering my firsthand experience. We rolled down the windows in her beat-up car and took in as much air as we could.

It was too hard to find an angle that could balance our contrasting skin tones. Rebecca is white and I am black. In several of our photos, that don’t make it to social media she can be seen glowing. We laugh about it. I tease her. It is simply the nature of things. In , interracial relationships should be the nature of things. This is the beginning of a short conversation I have with a stranger on the train after my wife kisses me goodbye and exits at her stop. These are the moments that have been a constant since we first met.
Not just with strangers but with friends. Well, former friends. Last Pride, I was showing a picture of Rebecca to one of these former friends. Her response, “Why does she have to be white?

The video showed Juanillo, who identified himself in a social media caption as a person of color, telling Alexander and her partner that they should call the police if they felt he was breaking the law. He later told ABC7 News that the couple called the police, who he says recognized him as the resident instantly. While Juanillo was fortunate to have been recognized and unharmed, calls like this could result in injury or worse, death. For Alexander, however, going viral as a Karen brought major consequences; she and her partner were both identified by their full names by online sleuths, which resulted in her skincare business being boycotted and her partner getting fired from his job.
It was disrespectful to Mr. Juanillo and I am deeply sorry for that. Within days after the video of Cooper was shared to Twitter, Cooper was fired from her job and temporarily lost custody of her dog ; on July 6 the Manhattan DA said she would be charged for filing a false report.

The weekend that the video of Amy Cooper in Central Park went viral was the same weekend that George Floyd was killed after now-former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck, suffocating him.
The Central Park video only highlighted the extreme violence — and potentially fatal consequences — of a white woman selfishly calling the cops out of spite and professed fear. In a larger sense, the mainstreaming of calling out the danger that white women and their tears pose has been building up to this moment. Meanwhile, the constant lies of white women like Kellyanne Conway and Sarah Huckabee Sanders in service of the Trump Administration have made it abundantly clear that white women can and are often complicit in oppressive systems.
Coupled with the rise of social media and the smartphone camera, the longtime narrative of white women as helpless victims in need of protection is now being challenged by video evidence of them as instigators of not only conflict, but violence.

I have several Black girlfriends who are extremely sensitive to this issue. So sensitive, that it is hard to have a rational conversation about it without someone inevitably stomping off in tears. I also have known several White women who only date Black men. I think that I understand where Black women are coming from on this issue, but I can’t understand White women who only date Black men to save my life. So, I hope that we can intelligently and respectfully discuss this issue because it is a big one.
I live in Minneapolis and this city has a reputation for these types of relationships. Recently I posted an ad on Yahoo Personals. I posted several ads designed to attract different types. In one ad I specifically stated that I wanted to meet tall, educated, White men. Someone responded who said that he was English and that is in his words “a true White man.
What does everyone think about that theory? I hope that the men who are part of this discussion group participate in this thread too.
