Irrational fears are a natural part of life. They are reminders to consider boundaries, look over rules, pay attention to societal pressures and, most importantly, to keep you from getting yourself killed.
You can, also, respectively break the hell out of ‘em. They are, of course, IRRATIONAL fears. They exist to be regarded, considered and, most likely, ignored.
There is nothing to be afraid of in Black men dating any woman, let alone a white one. But even in 2013 there still seems to be a stigma attached to the Black male/white female relationship.
