Minister Louis Farrakhan interviewed recently with TV One. Farrakhan spoke candidly to Cathy Hughes sharing his views on the presumed answer to the ‘Single Black Woman’ dilemma–interracial dating. Much of ‘SBW’ commentary suggests Black women limit themselves by only dating Black men. Actress Regina King recently stirred debate urging Black women to date interracially. Speaking exclusively to Vibe, the actress said Black women need to open up and explains Black men are willing to date everybody. The Nation of Islam under the advisory of Elijah Muhammad teaches strict rules against dating outside of the Black race, but these days Farrakhan’s views on the matter seems to have evolved. Farrakhan recalls actor Cuba Gooding Jr. asking the Minister’s thoughts on his marriage to a White woman. The Minister said, “I’d love to see the Black man with the Black woman but love transcends race.” On the other hand, Farrakhan says the bedroom has been integrated but the boardroom has not. The Minister questions is interracial dating based on lust.
