Dating a white man
Deep down I wish my hair were long and that it curled when it got wet so that I'd be a little less insecure.
These feelings make me self conscious about what white men think when they see me ...
I happen to have a very good relationship with my father.
Nor are white women trying to take anything away from black women.By dating a black man, we don't think that's an extension of “I have black friends, therefore I'm not racist." If we were racist, we wouldn't be dating a black guy in the first place.Who can really keep up appearances for that long just to prove a point? Dating has never been an easy feat for me, and as aware as I am of the fact that all men can be assholes, I'm forever wanting to try and experience something new.As much as I want to I've yet to date a white guy, I've continued to date nothing but black men despite constantly claiming to be open to other races.
A white friend of mine who was dating a black guy in school (who is now her husband) says that she was quick to experience pushback, when she would hear things such as “she's taking our good men! There are plenty of black men who exclusively date black women and in those cases, white women don't have any sort of edge.
