BAY AREA IR Dating Convention with Keynote Speaker Deborah Cooper

Just in case you’re in the area and interested in attending …  I think there is a LOT of swirling in San Francisco, so hopefully there will be equally… if not more …. men than women at the convention or subsequent dance party!



Single Professionals of all ages and all races are invited to America’s First Interracial Dating Convention, Friday, October 14, 2011, at the Marriott San Mateo/San Francisco Airport, 1770 S Amphlett Blvd, San Mateo CA 94402.

Dating expert and author Deborrah Cooper will keynote the convention. She will discuss:
•The Pros and Cons of Interracial Dating
•Dating and racial stereotypes, such as “Asian Women are Submissive” or “Black men are sexual studs”
•How U.S. media negatively impacts the romantic options of women of color
•Why Black/White interracial relationships are the most fraught with tension
•How and why Black churches keep African-American women single

“Interracial dating is neither superior nor inferior to dating within your own race,” says Ms. Cooper. “There are advantages and disadvantages, as well as special challenges to each. People who exclusively date a different race usually have a fetish for that race, which is no less foolish than refusing to date a particular race because of unfair stereotypes.”

Deborrah Cooper is the author of the award winning Sucka Free Love! How to Avoid Dating the Dumb, The Deceitful, The Dastardly, The Dysfunctional & The Deranged. She is a dating advice columnist for She is the veteran of numerous media interviews, including CNN, BET, Ebony, Essence, Dallas Morning News, Oakland Tribune, The Tom Joyner Morning Show, The Rev.

    I’m too far away, too. I wish someone would record this and put it on YouTube. We could search the YouTube by Deborah’s name or by “IR Dating Convention” or something.
