Black love is one the most powerful unions in the universe. However, Black couples are not as praised and magnified as they should be.
Black love is real. Appreciate each other Love each other Have fun with each other Joke with each other Uplift each other Communicate with each other Enjoy each other Travel Fall in love -@Shi_wortham
“I appreciate all Men who have integrity and morals and just dependable…I enjoy witnessing Black Love /Marriages… And not those who only practice in public and behind closed doors.” -@BiancasTalite13
There’s definitely a stigma when it comes to healthy, Black relationships in America. The images that we see in the media don’t ten show images Black love, let alone celebrate it.
NPR did a whole report on why so many Black Women are single. The article stated:
Dating is hard for lots people, but for black women in the United States, it can be uniquely horrible. For one thing, we’re ten expected to conform to white beauty standards. For another, we’re up against a hold parade racist stereotypes: that we’re angry, overbearing, lazy, prudish and hyper-sexual and emasculating all at once.
Those stereotypes and expectations do two things. First, they limit the pool people who are interested in dating black women. And second, they ten create situations where we, as black women, try super hard not to fit into those categories. So rather than relaxing and trying to have fun with potential dates, we’re caught up in the impossible game trying to seem fun and ambitious and feminine and flirty…but not too flirty.
But don’t fret— there are still some brothers out that love them some melanin. Couples like Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union have had many ups and downs throughout their nearly decade long relationship, but somehow they’ve managed to prevail and look like a Black Barbie and Ken doll in the process.
