Regina King recently raised the argument that we as black women still have not become completely comfortable dating outside our race.

Statistics show that white men usually date within their race and if they don’t, they are more likely to date a Hispanic, Asian or pacific islander.

The percentage of white men and black women that date is a very low one. Just not attracted to white men We are also guilty of just not feeling it.

To say that black people have made progress would be to say they deserve what happened to them before… There's been black people qualified to be president for hundreds of years.

The advantage that my children have is that my children are encountering the nicest white people that America has ever produced.

In New York magazine's November 2014 interview with Chris Rock, writer Frank Rich asked the comedian about issues ranging from the protests in Ferguson, Missouri, to Bill Cosby's rape allegations. So, to say Obama is progress is saying that he's the first black person that is qualified to be president. If you saw Tina Turner and Ike having a lovely breakfast over there, would you say their relationship's improved? But a smart person would go, "Oh, he stopped punching her in the face." It's not up to her. The question is, you know, my kids are smart, educated, beautiful, polite children.

But perhaps the most insightful part of Rock's interview came when he dismantled the idea of "black progress": When we talk about race relations in America or racial progress, it's all nonsense. Ike and Tina Turner’s relationship has nothing to do with Tina Turner. There have been smart, educated, beautiful, polite black children for hundreds of years.

The women I surveyed said they were naturally intimidated when it came to dating a white man because of their hair. Background/Education Statistics show that Caucasians have more money, better education, better jobs and more opportunities.

In the black community, we naturally have to work twice as hard and be 3 times smarter to achieve the level of success deemed to be successful.
