Former Wall Street woman touts interracial 'dating' prowess
In these tough times, many people have been forced to reinvent themselves after a career on Wall Street. We've brought you some upbeat stories over the years, like this one and here's another. Many have found interesting, fulfilling work. To that list, we can apparently add J.C. Davies, who spent more than a decade on Wall Street only to leave in hopes of hitting it big with what she hopes will be the definitive guide to interracial dating.
She has just self-published a book called I Got The Fever which "offers a practical course of treatment for dating within five unique cultures: Latino, Asian, Black, Indian and Jewish," according to her Racy JC blog. "Plus, author J.C. Davies delivers the low down on every question you ever had about dating men of other races but were too PC to ask." Check out the racy cover.
Davies spent more than a decade managing money and writing stock opinions on Wall Street. She holds a degree from Harvard and worked for a stint at Goldman Sachs. But after the market downturn of 2008, she "began focusing on her other area of expertise: interracial dating. She has more than 20 years of experience dating men of different cultures."
The concept has generated some skeptical commentary in Bloomberg, which wonders if all this "is nothing but fuel for Wall Street troglodytes looking for another example of why women shouldn't be taken seriously."
