Interracial marriages might have been unthinkable or even illegal when she was tying the knot--as they were for my grandparents who got married in the early 50's--so it's hard to take the opinion of someone even 40 years old on this in the age of constantly evolving Obama-era race relations.
Tyler Perry is a fairly young guy and even he got it dead wrong by trafficking in ugly stereotypes in “The Family That Preys Together” In the US there are almost 10 percent more eligible black women than eligible black men, meaning that in an absolute best case, never going to happen scenario, if every single black woman got married to a black man tomorrow there would be nearly 10 percent not getting married.

Believe it or not it's about the best way I can think of to sabotage a relationship.segregationist) aunt to completely embrace bw/wm relationships in general.Plus, if your grandmother is telling you this..much is she really and truly living in 2010 when she says this?
