SORT BY Relevancy
Interracial sexual contact likely peaked sometime during the early colonial Period, when white indentured servants and black slaves were in close contact in large numbers. The practice of keeping white indentured servants was on the decline and African slavery was on the rise, leading to a transitional period in which the two groups often lived and worked in close quarters. This interracial exposure at a time when folk ideologies of racial difference were still in their infancy probably produced the highest level of interracial sexual contact ever observed in this country. As Edmund S. Morgan notes, “It was common, for example, for servants and slaves to run away together, steal hogs together, and get drunk together. It was not uncommon for them to make love together.
We would like to believe that all people knew and understood the specialness of all races. But such was not the case. Because of the two laws, European men who wanted to marry African women fled to Maryland and European women who wanted to marry African men fled to Virginia
Who are the elites?
The rise of interracial sex led white elites to create ant miscegenation statutes in an effort to define boundaries between white servants and black slaves, whom slave-owners feared might band together in open rebellion. The children from such unions also posed a potential problem for the emerging racial system as elites grappled with a classification of people that would reinforce the institution of slavery. Efforts to reduce the level of interracial sex were assisted by a decline in the practice of white indentured servant hood, which increased the segregation of black slaves from white laborers. Some interracial sexual contact persisted, however, both on and off the plantation.
Interracial relationships are on a rise in the United States. Interracial married couples grew by 28 percent from 2000 to 2010, making 8.4 percent of all current U.S. marriages mixed-raced.
So, it’s no surprise that there has been an explosion of television shows featuring interracial couples. However, mainstream television series that portray Black people in interracial relationships – with Black women in particular – appear to far outnumber programs depicting Black couples.
In 1975, “The Jefferson" was the first television series to garner attention to featuring the first African American/Caucasian marriage. The series ran for 10-years. Just recently, there has been a huge influx of television shows that promote interracial relationship – with its most popular and most controversial – ABC’s "Scandal".
On this episode of Hot Topics Talk Radio, we’re going to examine the rise of shows which promote interracial relationships, and the decrease of shows that depict Black relationships and marriages. We are asking the question, “Is Black marriage going away in mainstream television?”

With mental illness affecting roughly 1 in 17 Americans, this 8-week series targets the way our nation and its churches confront the conversation surrounding mental illness and is designed to clarify broad misperceptions and shed a new light on the topic - Biblically and psychologically. The National Institute of Mental Health reports that one in four adults, approximately 57.7 million Americans experience a mental health disorder in a given year.
The series includes professionals who discuss such topics as the six stages of grief, chemical imbalances, the effects of mental health disorders on a child's education, and suicide. Additional discussions include pastors, leadership and members within the church who suffer from mental illness. The workshop is hosted by Pastor Seneca who leads the discussion utilizing Biblical references of mental illness. Reference John 9.
The workshop series also includes featured guests, psychiatric doctors, therapists, couples, teachers and families that have encountered and live within mental illness circumstances.
The business of putting together weddings is a huge and profitable industry. Magazines, TV programs, bridal fairs, books and websites by the hundreds have surfaced to ensure that all the details of a couple's special day are done right and done well. From the right color of ribbon for the reception place cards to the type of flowers in the bride's bouquet to the best kind of filling in the wedding cake, couples have a plethora of voices offering opinions, advice and options-and each couple will spend an average of over $20,000 to see that all the loose ends are tied up neatly and everything comes out picture-perfect.
When did getting married get so complicated? Have we lost something in the process of trying to create the picture-perfect day? Weddings are, without a doubt, one of the most significant and life-changing events a man and woman will ever experience-but have we focused on the trees so intently that we can no longer see the forest? When everything is said and done, what's a wedding really about?

On this episode of The LADY JAZ LIVE Show, its the ladies turn to approach this question. So we now know what REALLY turns the men off and yes we we're definitely surprised at what some of the fellas had to say.
Is it eaisier for a women to tell her husband or boyfriend what he does to irritate her than a man? When women confess what "really" turns her off, are men able to receive it, proccess it and move on? What toll does it take on a mans subconscious?
So now that the tables are turned "WHAT REALLY TURNS A WOMEN OFF?" and in keeping with this topic healthy communication is key and it’s important for couples to air their grievances. So let’s take another journey together. And just like we told the ladies; fellas don’t think of this show as a way to point out things women DISLIKE about you, think of it more as things that will bring you closer to your women, by not doing them!
