The topic of inter-racial relationships still strikes a nerve in most peoples’ psyches, and remains a red button issue most would rather avoid regarding race relations in AmeriKKKa. To truly understand this issue we must go back to it’s origin; back to an era that a vast majority of Euro-AmeriKKKans would like to keep swept under a rug of false democracy and equality, but that “Blacks” are constantly reminded of on a daily basis.

We begin with the age of slavery, or as the ol’ boys put it, “the good ole’ days,” when “blacks knew their place,” which was definitely not with a “white” person, intimately or otherwise. By the late 18th century, all of the 13 colonies banned interracial relationships via statutes they called anti-miscegenation laws. These laws not only outlawed non-Whites from marrying Whites, but also outlawed sex between Black and white.

Most anti-miscegenation laws were deemed unconstitutional within 20 years after the passage of the Fourteenth Amendment in July 1868; except of course in the Confederacy.

It was no problem and quite common, however, for “massa” to go into the “slave quarters,” abduct a Black woman from her husband, and rape her to satisfy his curiosity; but when white women wanted to cure her same “curiosity” by being sexually involved CONSENSUALLY with a Black man, it became a criminal trial in a court of law. In this era, for a Black man to even think about approaching a white woman in any other way than in a servant role would have literally meant death, if not worse.

The relationship between Black and white was established based on these two roles: the servant, or slave (Black); and the boss, or master (white). Some fortunate white children even had personal little Black play toys. Blacks were regarded as playful pets with simple needs (similar to the domesticated dog nowadays), no matter their age; thus the young white male calling a middle age Black man “boy.” As interactions and intimacy amongst Black and white increased throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, the number of whites who began seeing through the fables and falsities about Blacks, also increased. These positive relationships between Black and white is what started the cycle of progressive thinking on the part of both parties. Black and white children played innocently with one another and developed long lasting friendships. It was also the “Mamie” (a Black female house servant usually middle aged) who was the actual nurturer and de-facto mother of a vast majority of white children, which also contributed to this progress. These mother-child/boyfriend-girlfriend types of relationships gradually transformed to more intimate, personal encounters. These relationships commenced out of sheer curiosity and convenience (based on the “slave” relationship) for the most part, and turned into lasting, fruitful relationships at a mutual human level.

Blacks were and still are to this day portrayed as savages by white males; nothing but uncontrollable beasts, who lacked the mental capacity to even survive on ones own. But in today’s age this imagery is glorified by both Black and white. It is common knowledge that these white male slave owners were forcing their female (and sometimes male) slaves to have sex with them, and the wives of these slave masters knew this. What else could explain the eruption of lighter hue babies amongst the dark female slaves that shared the slave masters eyes?

Most of the heavy players in the slave trade shared stories of the physical and genetic make up of Blacks. Often times false statements and stereotypes were made ranging from abnormally enlarged areas on the body, to extra muscles in the legs that aided in running. The well disseminated stereotype, “all Black men are packing downstairs” is by far the most famous. Though personally not knowing if this statement is true, most Euro-AmeriKKKan males must have thought so based on their sexual assaults on black males and those same Euros being the only ones with the power to spread and perpetuate any propaganda they wished. 

White male slave owners’ relations with both the Black male and female was concentrated on domination and white supremacy. For instance, on most plantations a male slave had to have permission from his master before he could even get married, and on some occasions before he could even have sex with his own wife. On far too many occasions, before marriage the slave master had to sleep with the bride to be first.

During the Willie Lynch era, drunken white mobs would hunt down innocent Black males and publicly display their brutal, savage nature by hanging another human being for sheer entertainment purposes; acts still carried out almost daily by white police all across the United States.



Sometimes when the hanging wasn’t entertaining enough to them, they would go to the lengths of castrating the dead body. Their reasoning in doing so is to cut off the gene pool. I find it a very difficult task for a dead man to impregnate a woman. All of these brutal, savage acts were performed in front of women and children, which is likely what transformed the white woman’s relationship with Black males and females.

Historically, the white female in AmeriKKKa has also been disenfranchised and, for the most part, in virtual bondage by white males in their own right. Most of these women during slavery times and Jim Crow, and a good portion of white women today, just went along with what their husbands did. They, as the good ol’ boys would say, “knew their place,” as well and didn’t dare disrupt the order of things.

White women’s relationships with the Black masses of that day were concentrated around curiosity and piety. The curiosity came from the everyday personal interaction with Black people. It was unlawful for a Black person to learn how to read or write, perpetuated by a stereotype of Blacks not having the mental capacity to learn, but truthfully based on the white supremacy structure of not wanting Blacks to become too knowledgeable and “get out of place.”  Regardless, a good number of white women secretly taught young Black children and adults how to read and write knowing full well doing so was a crime, in some cases punishable by death. These acts could be construed as kindness and human decency on their part, or as piety and guilt towards the Black masses. White women gradually saw the hypocrisy in their Christian beliefs and the savage treatment and living conditions of Blacks with no foreseeable end in sight. These interactions began to shatter the shell of negative connotations of Blacks, created by white males. These incidents of “white kindness” by white females, along with the breaking down of the myths of mentally incompetent Blacks, led to the passing of those aforementioned anti-miscegenation law by all-white male U.S. Congresses, which was just another tool at their disposal to keep Blacks “in place.”

Romantic rendezvous were mostly initiated by whites due to the fear developed in the minds of most Blacks. It’s this fear that is still in the psyche of a vast majority of Blacks and whites alike today. White people’s deepest fear has always been being caught helping or laying with a Black person, and subsequently the fear of being “excommunicated” or “thrown out” of the white race. Whites were seen as “unclean” after laying with or even associating with a non-white person. Blacks, on the other hand, had a sure death in their immediate future if caught with a white person. The August 28, 1955 murder of 14-year-old Emmett Louis Till in Mississippi showed not only the true barbaric nature of insecure white males, but that Black males didn’t have to do much in sealing their slaughters.

Mr. Emmett Till, Christmas 1954. All of the killers were
acquitted a month after savagely murdering Mr. Till.

The reports on how the incident transpired between Till and 21-year-old Carolyn Bryant, the white woman Till reportedly whistled at, or as she reported “grabbed by the waist and asked on a date”, have been highly disputed. Nevertheless, none of these scenarios validates being kidnapped from your home, brutally beaten, having your eyes gouched out of the sockets, and thrown in a river to drown to death. Cases like this and many others went to show that these white male savages wanted to make the message plain and clear: “don’t touch our women.”

Though these barbaric murders happened often and openly, this still did not deter black men and white women from forming romantic relationships. The abolition of anti-miscegenation law moved quickly after the Fourteenth Amendment passed, and states (in the Confederacy) with active anti-miscegenation statutes after 1950 were not enforcing them. But it wasn’t until the year 2000 that Alabama voters lifted it’s ban on inter-racial marriages, this after years of not enforcing the law, making Alabama the last state in the USA to have an active anti-miscegenation law. 

Modern day views on inter-racial relationships are dominated by present day stereotypes, reminiscent of old age views. Nowadays, the adages go this way: “white women are too passive,” “black women are too head strong,” “black men are lazy,” and “white men have no rhythm.” It would be fair to state, however, that all sides have their share of bad apples. The battle in dealing with an inter-racial relationship is more so now between the individual and his or her own psyche. We have all been instructed and programmed to not venture off across that fictional boundary line of color by the Euro-AmeriKKKan male power structure for decades.

Black men and women are looked at as being “less down”, or “less black” for dating a white person. If one’s dating preference determines one “Blackness,” I can recall one very famous black civil rights leader who had dated a white person in the past and still to this day is labeled as one of the great “Black Leaders.” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. himself was advised to “reconsider” his serious romantic relationship with his white girlfriend who was of German origin due to the inevitable “blacklash” that would come from both the Black and white communities. Seeing how King wanted to return to the south and become a pastor, you could see why he strategically married Coretta. Make no mistake, I believe that King truly loved Coretta, but his own personal agenda played a strong factor in the tipping of the scales.

Fears of public ridicule and discrimination towards inter-racial relationships are just as scorching today as they were when first initiated. I feel that before two different groups, families, or races come together, they must first make sure their respective parties are in order. Only when that is done can there be a peaceful, productive relationship between Black and white as a whole. In the meantime, individual black men and white women will most likely continue their natural comradery, regardless of government and public dissent.
