I have read many articles from an American perspective about the growing number of mixed race relationships in the UK.
I am, of course, pleased that it is now acceptable to date who you want regardless of their skin colour.
I am a Black British teacher, and many of my friends are also in professional vocations.
By: Carla Ford Have you ever considered if you lived in the UK, would men of others races be more openly receptive in showing their attraction towards Black women?
The eccentric, open-minded and tolerant reputation of the British is, in general, accurate.
Even more so, 50 percent of Caribbean origin children have one White parent.
I should also add here that Black people of African descent buck this trend slightly, and there appear to be more of them dating within their ethnic group.
But things are thankfully changing for Black women.
It is now estimated that 48 percent of Black Caribbean men and 34 percent of Black Caribbean women are in mixed-race relationships in the UK.
