Meanwhile, throughout high school and college, the few black men I knew found my blackness as subpar to theirs.
As time passed, I realized that being black didn’t mean I had to look or act a certain way.
This wasn’t simply because I’ve always believed in inclusivity, but also because I grew up surrounded by white people.
His wife and I caught eyes, and I flashed her a smile.
I am not dating a black man, and I feel less guilty about it each day.
If I waited for a black guy who liked me to apparate out of thin air, I would have waited a decade.
But even if my options for black men were limitless, I’ve never viewed attraction as black or white.
