At the time, I needed someone who would "get it," and he just couldn't relate.
Because who's to say my husband isn't, IDK, Tim Riggins?So while my knee-jerk reaction in times like these is to hold down my own and make sure black men feel the intrinsic love I have for them, I can’t trash the wonderful experiences I've had during my intimate affairs with non-black men. No matter the color, the wedding dress isn't guaranteed. You’ve found someone you want to date who wants to date you back! Actually, you don’t get bonus points for being in an interracial relationship (IRR).Interestingly, people scrutinized me as much as they did him.I was naive in thinking I was exempt, but we were picked on for our relationship.
