In the entertainment industry, there are plenty of celebrities that date outside of their race. Actress Regina King has expressed that she sees absolutely no problem with it. And she has made it a point to convince other African American women that there is nothing wrong with dating a man that isn’t black.

King believes that some of us give too many excuses as to why we don’t give man of other races a chance. Here is what she had to say:

“They never really say it’s because he’s White, or because he’s Spanish or something like that. It’ll be more like, ‘Well, you know he works at such and such, and our schedules don’t match.’ But we’ll know really what it is. It’s ’cause he’s White.”

Is Regina King on to something? Should be step outside of our comfort zone and date men of other races? Or is it not as realistic for African American women as she may make it out to be?
