Am scared of dating a black guy
The issue that we as Black women face is the disappointing reality that too often when the Black men does decided to date women of other nationalities, they feel compelled to bash and demean us in the process.Leaving us to question, “How hard is it to love her without hating us? Inside is one of the main Jewish prayers.” I’m not sure if he was impressed or shocked, but either way, his face nearly dropped to the floor. He looked exactly like Donny with an extra thirty years. I shared how I got started in my field, how I was inspired by a young social worker who helped my cousins when I was young. “This is a mezuzah,” he explained, pointing to the small doorpost affixed diagonally, “not exactly sure what it means, but it’s some kind of Jewish law.” “Yeah. This is Steven.” I gazed into the future as Donny’s father approached. A couple glasses of wine and a delicious main course later, the four of us were talking about my job as a social worker. About anything.” We got to talking about the party we met at. I only went because a good friend of mine pleaded with me. I knew he was an attorney, but I didn’t know he was a public defender. That’s when Steven put his fork down and turned to me.When our bodies are held in comparison to features of other women, not only are we made to feel like sexual objects, but his teaches those who are watching the behavior of the Black men that we as Black women are nothing more than a fat ass.The practice constantly forces us to defend her self-worth and piece together our deminished self esteem.
If he, meaning the Black man as a whole doesn’t honor us, how can we possible be upset that people outside of our community don’t either? I didn’t phrase it so sentimentally at the dinner table, but I got it across in a way that felt genuine. And for some reason, it gave me a bit of confidence. Even at a young age, I was moved by her selflessness and commitment to others.As I was scrolling through my newsfeed for what I am sure was the seventh time, I came across a video shared by one of my FB friends. Within the first 45 seconds, I could feel my body getting hot. By the third minute mark, I couldn’t figure out if the tears forming in my eyes were from anger or sheer disgust.For almost ten minutes, I watched a White woman shamelessly bash Black women.
