Black and White Relationships

Posted by Jack Stephens on March 19, 2007

On the blog Rachel’s Tavern the author states:

My research is most concerned with how contemporary racism also called colorblind racism or laissez faire racism affects family approval of interracial relationships. However, we cannot understand how contemporary racism works without acknowledging the extent to which racism is interconnected with other forms of oppression. Multiracial feminist theorist Patricia Hill Collins refers to these complex connections as the matrix of domination. After interviewing couples it is evident that opposition to interracial marriage is not just about racism. The issues of gender and controlling Black women’s, White women’s, and Black men’s sexuality is ever present in the discourses that families use to oppose interracial relationships.

    Black Crime
    (Re: David Horowitz, “Racial Profiling: The Death of the Civil Rights Movement,” 9/5/00)
    Although blacks are 12% of the population in reality it is just 2% of the blacks that commit 50% of the murders and a greater percentage of other crimes…BUT there has not been a black woman raped by a white male in anybody’s memory (going back over 20 yrs.)
    [Editor's Notes, Jack Stephens: Wow, this is one fucked up comment. I have no problem with people posting their views on this blog that are contrary to ours, as long as it's done respectfully and makes some type of sense and isn't lashing out or anything of that manner. I just caught this comment right now. Needless to say it was a horrible comment and I removed most of the garbage from it. But Yolanda decided to comment on it so I don't want to delete the whole thing since Yolanda's comment is very good and basically blows this comment out of the water. So I'm just included a little bit from this long comment to get you guys an idea of the absolute trash this person was spewing.]

  2. Jane—you have no idea if white men have raped Black women or not, since nearly ninety percent of rapes are never reported to police. In fact I can think of one rape of a Black female by a white male off the top of my head: the rape and murder of seven-year-old Sherrice Iverson in 1997.

    As for the rest of your post, Horowitz’s writing has been discredited time and again.

  3. Yolanda Carrington and others,

    Here’s an another example of rape of Black women by white men, just come to this article at my website:

    More on the Racial Hate Crime in S.C.

    Refutes the common conservative mythology of the “black rapist/criminal.”

    This comment is for Jane, white men raping black women goes back to slavery days…. Hell, I don’t have hazel eyes for nothing, and my grandma’s skin is not yellow because she hates the damn son; oh and my grandfather’s eyes are blue, (yes blue) because his father’s eyes were blue.
