"There are many influences that have shaped, affected or strained black marriages, according to marriage and family experts. Among them: African tribal traditions, the horrors of slavery, racial integration in the U.S. that paved the way to more freedoms and the migrations of thousands of African-Americans that fractured or reshaped communities."
How can this nation be color-blind when this still exists?

OK this is getting a bit ridiculous. We don't need any color day to celebrate whatever. How about we are all just human!

I read the first article from the cafemom post, what did their marriage have to do with being black? All marriages go through turmoil at one point or another. I'm white, very happily married to a black man. In my race and ethnicity class, a black girl told me that she didn't like mixing in marriages because the black family was already strained. How is that my fault? She said the black family was broken from divorce and being raised by single mothers, etc. And? my parents divorced and I don't blame black people or get mad when I see an interracial couple. I dont' see what slavery has to do with modern black marriage....
