One thing I've come to understand, through my own relationship, is that for people who are really working at commitment, a relationship quickly ceases to be a political statement.

There is certainly part of me that feels my partnership with a black woman says something about me. The problem is that no committed person goes to bed with black spouse or a white spouse.

Although my guess hit the mark, when my friend told me his wife was indeed Caucasian, I felt my spirit...wince. African people worldwide are known to be welcoming and open-minded.

We share our culture sometimes to our own peril and most of us love the very notion of love.

By her own reckoning Jill Scott's friend is "new." All she knows about him is that he's nice-looking, well compensated and loves his mother.

He could have a trail of baby momma's from Oakland to Kansas City.

A short while ago, Drudge Report tweeted out this quote: “When my friend told me his wife was Caucasian, I felt my spirit wince.” Intrigued, I clicked the accompanying link to find a column the singer Jill Scott wrote for about her feelings on interracial dating posted in March of 2010.

At first, I wondered why on earth Drudge Report was interested in a year old column by a singer.

But something in me just knew he didn't marry a sister. My body showed no reaction to my inner pinch, but the sting was there, quiet like a mosquito under a summer dress. Did the reality of his relationship somehow diminish his soul's credibility? One could easily dispel the wince as racist or separatist, but that's not how I was brought up. I was taught that every man should be judged by his deeds and not his color, and I firmly stand where my grandmother left me.

It's totally out of whack with what I see/hear in my daily interactions.

It's as if all our complainers, all our naysayers, all our insecurities got together and went into journalism.

If you haven’t been following the story, Michelle Obama’s event is set to feature poetry readings by a number of public figures.

One of the figures, the rapper Common, has come under intense scrutiny because of an old video in which he raps about carrying a gun and threatening police officers and then-President George W. The controversy also touched on a 2005 interview Common gave in which he came out against interracial dating as a detriment to “self love.” Some industrious soul decided to search through the other attendees’ public comments and came up with Scott’s article which is now being widely shared and denounced.

Then it hit me; she’s going to the White House, isn’t she?
