Fitting into this lifestyle felt more natural to me than living in Rochester ever did.In Rochester everyone appeared to me as clones, walking down school halls clad in American Eagle apparel with Aroma Joe’s coffee cups in hand, but at TU everything clicked. White Women are dating Black Men all aroundthe world as never before. And lets not talk about the wealthy ones who would rather marry a White female than a Black. Color doesn't make a bit of difference, and those who make it a big difference are racist.
Growing up in New Hampshire didn’t prevent me from making friends or dating guys who weren’t white.I felt a certain pride in hanging out with people who were Dominican, Indonesian, Laos, Filipino, Hispanic, etc. My parents taught me good morals, like not judging others by their appearance, though I did have to keep my jaw clenched when I visited relatives.announcements Art Ask Redditaskscienceawwblogbookscreepydataisbeautiful DIYDocumentaries Earth Pornexplainlikeimfivefoodfunny Futurologygadgetsgaming Get Motivatedgifshistory IAm AInternet Is Beautiful Jokes Life Pro Tipslistentothismildlyinterestingmovies Musicnewsnosleepnottheonion Old School Coolpersonalfinancephilosophyphotoshopbattlespicsscience Showerthoughtsspacesportstelevisiontifutodayilearned Two XChromosomes Uplifting Newsvideosworldnews Writing Promptsedit subscriptions Don't give a woman the opportunity to weaponize sex.Demand acts of apology that show appreciation and effort as payment for her shit behaviour.Although New Hampshire is over 94% “white alone”, (and zero percent Native American) my high school proudly flaunts the Red Raider mascot, a stereotypical Native American with a face tinted blood red (Census Bureau, 2014).
This was the place I was born and raised; where nobody had to whisper the “n word” or hesitate to stick some feathers in their hair and paint their skin red as a sign of school spirit.I began receiving attention from darker skinned guys, one even proclaiming with a wink that he had “never had a white girl before” as if conquering a white girl is some badge of honor or just something to check off a list.Dating a black man is not the same as dating a white man.No matter how anxious I was to tell my family about my boyfriend, I felt proud of my interracial relationship, like we were the result of the world uniting and becoming a better place.While some people smiled at us as we held hands in D. or walked side by side around the Inner Harbor, others just stared with disapproving eyes. Some people think that there are ulterior motives or reasons why Black Men and White Women date or marry each other. However the case may be, there is still in this day and age some resentment and ill will towards Black Men coming from the African American community. Until the world can see a man as a man and a woman as a woman, it will live divided.
