Join us for a discussion of Thanksgiving and all the little and large thngs that can go...completely awry! Whether you are cooking the dinner, preparing for the dinner, or forced (sometimes it seems) to attend the dinner, the holidays can often be a "trying" time.
Holidays are full of traditions and people we know, don't know, and sometimes are a surprise, but the energy is prime for emotional upheavals and offhand remarks. You might hear things like: "Oh don't be so sensitive!" or "I was only joking" and the ever popular "Do you think you should be eating that, or having another, or Haven't you had enough?" Yes it's the prime time of people releasing all their "judgemental" skills that may not be appreciated. Still---we all are grateful deep down that we are connected to someone even if they are far away. Thanksgiving is just that: Giving thanks for what's brought us to where we are or are going!

Karyn Langhorne Folan brief bio
Karyn Langhorne Folan graduated from Harvard Law School a couple of years ahead of President Obama. A former law professor, Karyn became interested in the many questions and issues surrounding interracial relationships after her marriage to her Irish American husband in 2004. After receiving hundreds of comments from readers after an essay in The Washington Post on the unique ways black Americans reacted to her relationship, Karyn decided to explore the issues further. The result is her book “Don’t Bring Home A White Boy—and Other Notions That Keep Black Women From Dating Out.” Karyn is also the author of two interracial romance novels, A Personal Matter and Unfinished Business, and two other novels.
For Hank Bullard and Jaquiez Douglas, Women are no longer that much of a mystery.
"Give us a woman and tell us her situation and I bet we can tell you the reason why she's single," claims Hank Bullard. "Once you deal with women for as long as we have yousee a pattern and break into the science. Now we're not saying you learn everything but you do learn enough to understand. "
As two regular well to do men both Bullard & Douglas hold steady jobs within the medical field while living well within their means.
"We give a 100% man's Point of View to black women, as to why they can't get a man, or keep one," states Bullard. "We're telling women what's really wrong while trying to help them see what we see. Basically, seeing things in another light."
IN AN AGE WHEN AMERICA HAS EMBRACED a mixed-race president and a strong, independent black woman as first lady...when black women are on the move and more empowered than ever before...there remains one hot-button topic that stirs up cultural resistance and intensity of emotion like no other: interracial relationships -- or, specifically, when black women date or marry white men.
What is it about the black female/white male dynamic that sparks such controversy and depth of feeling? What keeps many single black women from exploring relationships outside of their race at a time when the pool of eligible black men is at an all-time low?

In our second segment we will feature Karyn Langhorne Folan, the author of Don't Bring Home A White Boy: And Other Notions that Keep Black Women From Dating Out. Black women have more choices than we realize-and it's time to pursue all of them-just as black men do. This book is written in the sincere belief that it's time for African American women to broaden their horizons beyond black men and become open to experiencing romantic happiness from any man whose character and interests are compatible with their own... even if that man's skin happens to be white.

Join Candidly Candace for her interview with Karyn Langhorne Folan. DON'T BRING HOME A WHITE BOY: And Other Notions that Keep Black Women From Dating Out by Karyn Langhorne Folan will be released by Simon & Schuster in February 2, 2010. The book is an attempt to delve deeply into the roots of our cultural resistance to black women and white men. It's an effort to harness the theories and emotions behind the controversy, analyze them and offer them up for deeper discussion. The title reflects the deep and long-standing cultural message stamped deep into every black daughter-"Don't Bring Home a White Boy." At least on some level, these cultural messages play role in why so many African American women are single.
