With all this yapping about the tragically single black woman and how she’ll never, ever find a mate unless she sinks all manner of expectations for black men or goes on the hunt for a white husband, I found this video, produced by Lamar and Ronnie Tyler of the MyBrownBaby website fave BlackAndMarriedWithKids.com, to be absolutely refreshing. Beautiful. And necessary. (And I’m not just saying that because they used one of my favorite songs for the music, or because my husband Nick and I are one of the couples featured. Seriously!) Love and marriage between African American men and women is possible and the Tylers’ video is a testament to the fact that is real. And I’m proud of BlackAndMarriedWithKids.com for celebrating it and saying it out loud.
