Remember when Ralph Richard Banks shared an excerpt from his controversial new book “Is Marriage for White People?” with The Wall Street Journal and ignited a heated national debate? We do, because you expressed you’re outrage and concerns with us too, and the topics quickly became one of the most covered dating issues this year.

Watch their discussion here.
