ATR 108 – Remembering Michael Jackson

Love and sex: what’s race got to do with it?

by Carmen Van Kerckhove

A few years ago I was at a conference to deliver a workshop. During the break, a man came up to me and asked me what topic I’d be speaking on.

“Interracial relationships,” I replied.

As soon as the words came out of my mouth, his whole manner changed.

He started leering, and asked me in a low, suggestive tone, “Is this based on personal experience?”

Actually my workshop was all about debunking sexual myths and destroying racial stereotypes. But the minute he heard me say the word “interracial,” all he could think about was sex.

What is it about the combination of race and sex that makes it so explosive? How is race getting in the way of your relationships without you even knowing it? What racial dynamics are driving the unconscious choices you’re making when it comes to your relationships?

ATR 107 – Iran demonstrations, politics of hair, The Hangover, white guys

Update: link to MP3 is at the bottom of the post. Thanks Jan!

Can we tell an Iranian woman’s politics from the looseness of her headscarf? Why is the way a black woman wears her hair still such a political choice? What’s driving the popularity of white-men-behaving-badly movies, such as The Hangover? Is there such a thing as race-approved white guy? Carmen Van Kerckhove, Tami Winfrey Harris, and Latoya Peterson discuss.
