Race, Racism, and Online Dating, and The Erotic Life of Racism, by Sharon P. Holland

These two excellent pieces of writing: the article from Racism Review, and the book by Sharon Patricia Holland, speak to the issues raised in a recent post on attraction.

I'll write more soon but wanted to get this up now:

It speaks so much to me about why white folks encouraging other whites to practice being less racist with people of color in dating situations would be a detrimental, dangerous, and disastrous thing to recommend.
