Ta-Nehisi has been saying some interesting things about relations between black men and women, and I thought I was hearing echoes of arguments from inside the Jewish community. So we had the following conversation because we're both so into black-Jewish dialogue :. Jeffrey Goldberg : Why do people go outside their groups to look for mates? What drives it? Ta-Nehisi Coates : I think most men I know, to some extent, have this thing with what's exotic.

When I was kid in West Baltimore, we prized the black girls who lived out in Baltimore County - they were white girls before there were any white girls. They were supposed to be more refined and more classy. Once I came to New York, a lot of the dudes here had this thing about Asian girls - they were just the new exotic "other. This was especially true when it came to black men and white women.

It wasn't seen simply as you hooking up with someone different, but an almost wholesale rejection of your history, culture, and way of being. Like a rejection of the idea that black people are, as Ice Cube used to say, an endangered species. Marrying black was just an extension of the whole "buy black" thing. The idea was to keep resources in the community. Popular Latest. The Atlantic Crossword. In Subscribe. Frankly, I think that's still a powerful force. I hate to say this, but the interaction with Obama would be a lot different - in many, many, many ways - if his wife were white.

At the same time, I don't think it's the way of the future. We will be integrated. Whether we like it or not. Seeing any parallels here? My comparison is based on a basic theory that people under duress - or people who have experienced a history of duress - are altered in certain ways, and that those ways extend across race.

Some of it's likely different. But a lot of it, I think, has to be the same. Or not. You probably weren't even alive when Woody Allen made "Annie Hall" a. The father with the Ben Shahn drawings. In fact, I didn't really date any Jews until I moved to Israel, where Jews are pretty much unavoidable. We didn't "date," per se, at our socialist Zionist summer camp, though there was a lot of Bolshevik sex. In double-fact, I didn't really date very many white girls at all, until I met Mrs. You know the old saying, "Once you go black, you end up marrying a Jewish girl from Providence, Rhode Island.

But weirdly, and maybe you Jewish men who love black women analyze this for me, Dr. Coates, I didn't get pissed off at Jewish women who dated out, only Jewish men. In retrospect, I guess I felt sorry for the Jewish women who intermarried, because I sensed that they tried, and failed, to convince Jewish men that they weren't, in fact, their mothers, that they were intelligent and sexy and all the rest.

Jewish men who go outside, I think - and this is not everyone, obviously - are looking beyond the tribe not because they really think they're going to end up marrying their mothers if they find a Jewish woman, but because they're scared of Jewish women, especially the intense sort my friends and I all seemed to marry. They're scared that these women will see right through them, among other things.

There are upsides, of course, to marrying out - all those new and exciting genes, for one thing, and the opportunity to bring someone new into the fold. And you allude, of course, to the ultimate promise of real integration. Anyway, it's complicated, and I'm getting the sense you believe, as I do, that blacks and Jews have a lot more in common than lactose intolerance and hard-to-manage hair.

TC : Heh, you just made the textbook black argument against interracial dating. I basically wrote a piece saying exactly this a few years back. I argued that black men should not date out, but that black women should do whatever. My sentiments were much like yours - there really is no doubt, that in most cases, black women are looking out after having at least given the neighborhood a shot. The same couldn't be said of the dudes, however.

Now, I think that long-term relationships are really, really hard, and should not be subject to ideology. It just seems like, in my experience, relationships rise and fall over dumb practical shit. A lot of black folks worry about disappearing. Not disappearing, I think, in the manner that Jews worry. But like, that we'll basically slaughter each other and those of us that are left will go to jail. So when you have the chance to build a stable black family, the idea is you've got to do it.
