Badejo writes: I first came across the encouragements to go to Europe and “swirl” when I was a junior in college preparing to study abroad in Sweden.Though I cringe to admit it now, I was excited by the possibility of a semester spent flirting with Swedes.For the past few years, the media has seemed to be on a campaign to convince African-American women we are the unhealthiest, least educated, most undesirable, and least likely to get married women on the planet.And while the numbers don’t bear this out (we are kicking ass in college, and by 35, 75 percent of sistas are married), the media keeps harping on our supposed crisis.Unfortunately, many, including a fair share of Black women, are buying into the false notion that we have a harder time finding love than other women. Folks are waiting longer to get married, instead choosing to focus on careers and attaining financially stability before saying, “I do.” Despite this, the media has played up the “woe is Black women” meme so long that some of us are starting to believe that Black American women need to go to drastic lengths to find a man.Recently, Buzzfeed’s Anita Badejo penned an interesting article about several Black women who’ve found love and a newfound appreciation for their beauty after traveling (and moving) to Europe.
