Black men will not be graded on a curve or given extra cool points or favored positions simply because they share a similar shade of melanin with us.
They will know the world is their oyster and know they can bring home a boy whose purple with pink polka dots, and as long as he treats her well, he will have a place at our dinner table.
They’ll know because they saw their mother treated well, and will know instinctively when a man comes along all shiny and glittery on the outside and full of crap on the inside.
While I will never discourage my daughters from dating black men, I WILL encourage them to date ALL types of men.
You both need to decide if this relationship is worth pursuing.
It’s not realistic to totally avoid political discussions.
