Among black newlyweds, there are distinct gender differences in intermarriage across education levels. Take a look in the comments section of Baker's piece, and you'll see that people are very passionate about interracial relationships and racial issues. Now what? Image: Gallup There's a belief among some members of racial groups that one who dates outside of that race is disloyal, self-loathing, or has, for lack of a better word, been brainwashed. This is a good thing to recall when you hear about a preacher cheating on his wife or a violently anti-gay black man who is on the down low.
None of the white wives in either setting described similar experiences with previous same- or different-race partners. This appeared in the March issue. That's one more white person who knows why I'm going to arrogantly list off my academic and professional achievements if some white person asks me if I play basketball. Why do you have to make everything about race? The experience felt like an extension of my undergraduate days at McGill, so I picked the University of Toronto then and there.
