In thinking about the show Scandal, the notion of interracial love and sex has been a contemplative one. As I once noted, white supremacy has conditioned society into accepting whiteness as pure and perfect; black men desire white women because they have been the ultimate prize…. That has been the teaching of Hollywood and Miss America, as I pointed out here
…but I particularly like this post regarding interracial romance and the show Scandal. Hence it empowers black women and interracial romance — or does it create a caricature of it?
They share a dynamic relationship. It is a toxic one due to their own lives. And in truth, it is easy to forget about race when watching them together. It is an affair; but it is subscribed out of real love and not a caricature. Though some will look at what is wrong with their relationship, it is nice knowing that race is not it.
What do you think? I am waiting to hear from you. Are you out there?
