More black women dating white
We ended up hitting it off, but it wasn’t until our first date that I realized I had underestimated the wingman’s abilities.
” Against my better judgment, I assumed that the wingman just wasn’t very good at his job and started talking to his friend anyway.
Though racial microaggressions are felt by every marginalized group within the dating realm, I am building upon my own personal experiences with heterosexual, cisgender white men to offer suggestions on how to ease racial tensions that may arise in a white man/black woman pairing.
Once, I was at a bar with friends when two white men approached me.
He kept touching my hair without my consent, was legitimately disappointed that I could not twerk, and called me “sassy” whenever I voiced an opinion that was different from his.
Unfortunately, that wasn’t the first or last awkward date I’ve had with a white man.
Don’t ask us “Why do black people like or do _____?
