The Book "Swirling" How to date Mate & Relate, Mixing Race, Culture & Creed, is making waves all across the World! The Buzz is like Wildfire, its even making waves in Hollywood Land!
I had the pleasure to sit back and watch these two women educate, inform, and inspire women. Particularly Black Women to expand their dating options outside of "Race". Take it beyond race, when you only see race, your missing the whole point. The advise you get is "See Love" allow yourself to be in love with a human being even if they don't look like you. When you leave "Race" attached to Love you miss out on so much, including LOVE.
I wanted to take this article to really talk about the Energy/Spirit behind what they are doing. There are other Black Women Empowerment Movements doing some really powerful awesome things. They are creating Movements in Blogs and on the Internet. It's wonderful. However Janice & Chistelyn have taken this movement International. With this sort of movement particularly with a group of women that have been loyal, still, dedicated, and stuck to the people that look like them forever, is a challenge beyond itself.
Black Women have been left holding the bag forever. Black Women are more likely to be single parents and have children without being married more than any other group of women, because of the pickings they have been left with. Christelyn & Janice are not only going to have an uphill battle with "certain" groups of people that have benefited from Black Women without paying or giving them the relationship, safety, honor, and protection they deserve. Christelyn & Janice are going to be faced with the Energy/Spirit that has been in place for so long that is comfortable feeding off of the "struggle" energy that Black women have been cooking in for so long as well.
Christelyn & Janice are breaking boundaries, bloodline habits, and cultural obstacles. This is huge. If you look at the pattern, Black Women are the ones that have carried the Black Community, without even signing up for the job, by raising children by themselves, working 2 and 3 jobs, being faithful to men that did not reciprocate and carrying the emotional and spiritual burdens as well.
Christelyn & Janice are bringing the book "Swirling" to life with humor, a-ha moments, fun, and interest. Educating Black Women to look beyond the walls of what they have seen and see more.
There are no shortage of men! Christelyn & Janice shows that "It's truly raining men" if you allow yourself to see Love beyond Race.
My personal note to Christelyn & Janice! Thanks for being the culprits for breaking down "chains & walls & obstacles to finding, dating, mating, and having true LOVE in Women's life. You will go down in History, and you will be sitting Oprah's couch one day!
