The twisted rules apply to different types of men and women.
Black women, for example, must play an entirely rigged ball game as compared to black men when they only date outside their race.
The reason was because those people worshipped idols, not because of race; the Hebrews, Amorites, Canaanites, etc. The apostle Paul encouraged Christians not to marry unbelievers (2 Corinthians ), but here again, the reason was religious, not racial.
Jesus and His apostles taught that we must respect and show compassion for all people of God's creation without regard to artificial distinctions like race and nationality.
For some reason, many ugly misconceptions about black women’s characters have continued to occur.
No matter whether you’re the black woman in this scenario or the one judging the hell out of her, chances are, you’ve stumbled across these societally skewed perceptions of black women while they’ve been dating outside their race: Because black women have historically claimed the matriarch role in black families, they are expected to be completely devoted to that.

Our joy in our relationships, ANY relationship, must come from the surprise and delight of finding someone we have a spiritual, mental and emotional connection to. Choosing someone to love and someone to care about you should be your first priority, not race. There are no particular advantages to choosing a partner of a different race just to experience a new joy per se that I can think of offhand.There is nothing in the Bible saying it is wrong to date or marry a person of a different race.There are a few incidental mentions of race in the Bible (e.g., that Ethiopian's skin was different, Jeremiah ), but there is nothing saying one race is superior to another.Please watch your footing as we step into the land of crooked double standards.As you may already know, double standards seemingly haunt us in every aspect of our lives, whether that’s at work, school or the already difficult world of dating.In His Parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke -37), Jesus told of a Samaritan man who was kind to a Jewish man even thought they were enemies of different religions, nationalities and racial backgrounds.At the end, Jesus tells us, " You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.
