Boy dating sasha obama
Malia Obama, the daughter of former US President Barack Obama, was recently pictured kissing Rory Farquharson, a British former public schoolboy.And now, it has been revealed that her 19-year-old British boyfriend has links with the royal family.Due to a host of societal conditions—from early death to mass incarceration—twice as many black women attend college as black men.Among all demographics, African American women are the least likely to date outside their race—with barely 12% marrying non-black spouses.“In short, no matter the personal cost,” Banks said, “black women are encouraged to marry ‘down’ before they marry ‘out.'” So far, Obama’s kiss is been met with relatively little backlash.This decorum, however, is likely to fade if Obama continues to date—and ultimately marry—outside her race.Many, including other first daughters past and present, have argued quite reasonably that the press should leave Malia alone. Never before has such a high-profile young woman of color navigated her way through the Ivy League dating pool.
So Malia Obama boyfriend should go through a lot if he would really want to become a part of her life.Williams may be rich, famous, and stratospherically accomplished, but for many black Americans her romantic decisions are not fully her own.Like Williams, Obama cannot escape the optics of her new boyfriend’s whiteness.On a community level, explained Stanford law professor Ralph Richard Banks in his book , black women often face a type of pressure to marry within the race that white simply women do not experience.
“There is still enormous social pressure on black women to only marry black men—to ‘sustain’ the race and build strong black families,” Banks told me in an interview in 2011.
According to , Rory's second cousin was one of the Queen's most trusted aides, Andrew Farquharson.
