"I replied to Bantu’s post not because I am a black Rastafarian male dating white women, or intending to, but partly because I have a half-white daughter, and of course because I have been in an interracial relationship. There is nothing for you there to prove that I have shown a preference for dating white women."
"Me thinks thou doth protest too much." If her statement does not speak to your conscience, then ignore it. I live in LA and I used to think those relationships were the result of environment, LA-LA land being so Hollywood and all. B.K. however, lives on the East Coast, a part of the US much more amenable to the cultivation African, Afro-Caribbean and Afro-American relationships. I know, I once lived there. That she has observed a noticeable trend among East coast Rastas only lends credibility to her contention.
"MY ANSWER IS THIS: Yes, I am a Rastafarian. I don’t need your sympathy, but you have mine for failing to see that even a “Rastafarian” can have that behavioural inconsistency, and I don’t even mean my “behavioural inconsistency”, but general inconsistency such as having an affair with a white girl. Yes, it happens, even among married Rastafarians, and of course it is inconsistent."
I can accept inconsistency, and human frailty, but there is also some incongruity in the apparent inaccessibility of African females, even for an affair or one night stand, and the apparent accessiblility of European females in such judicious society.
