In the summer of 2016, Jesse Williams accepted the Humanitarian Award at the BET Awards and gave a speech that floored the entire audience.
Williams spoke about the importance of Black men being supportive of Black women.
I mean actual, real-life interracial relationships. Despite its higher representation on TV and in pop culture, this is still a taboo subject, and one that is often met with a range of emotions that are not always positive.
So I decided to talk to interracial relationship expert, Christelyn Karazin, Brand Ambassador for Interracial Dating Central.com, who gave her thoughts on the subject and why she is an interracial dating advocate particularly for Black women.

In the film, several prominent men such as Jay-Z, Chris Rock, and Williams discuss their relationship issues.
In the short film, Williams said, “I was in a relationship 13 years ― 13 real years, not five years, not seven years, 13 years ― and all of a sudden mother f—s are writing think-pieces that I somehow threw a 13-year relationship, like the most painful experience I’ve had in my life like with a person I’ve loved with all of my heart, that I threw a person and my family in the trash because a girl I work with is cute.” But after Williams was spotted with Kelly following the film’s release, he was blasted on social media because of his new relationship.
Christelyn: As with most advocacy, my motivation comes from having my own experiences.

Good God, Twitter is a constant source of news and drama.
This bit of news generated after former KKK grand poo-ba David Duke tried to shame Chris Evens, the actor that plays Captain America by suggesting that he “hates” the women of his own race.
