So, if you know me, you know that I am a person who enjoys the company of any and everyone. I have friends of so many different cultures, races and backgrounds. I love that because each and every one of them brings something new to the table.
Now I want to get to the fact that I am seeing someone who’s white; I don’t have a problem that he’s not black one bit. Neither does my family or my close friends. It’s the people who don’t know me, that have a problem with who I’m seeing… it happens a lot. I would think that we are in an age and time, where people should be free to date and be around whoever the hell they want too.
I’ve notice that it’s mainly black men who have an issue with me dating someone who is not the same color as me. I never get approached by black men, and when I do, it’s on some ‘damn girl let me holla at you, or you phat as sh$!, type mess.’ I’m a grown woman, and if you don’t know how to approach me, then I will pay you no mind; I don’t care what race you are! But I do notice that when I’m sitting beside someone that’s not black they want to try to be all up in my business. I just don’t get it. One guy even approached me, when my date went to the restroom. “What are you doing with him, you should be sitting here with me”… WTF does that suppose to mean. I kindly told him, “I’m here with who I want to be here with, and I hope that you have a wonderful evening.” I don’t believe that people actually have the balls to say things like that to people.
I want to know when today’s society will learn to accept that people can’t help who they fall in love with, or who they like, and want in a mate. If you’re dating someone of a different race I would love to hear your story. Or even if you know someone who is in the same situation, how do feel about it?
