Dating black man experience
One night, a date and I decided to hit a local New Jersey bar.
As we approached the secured entrance, a white couple was also entering, walking only steps behind us. Ds, the white security guard informed us that we could not enter, as my date was violating the dress code; mere seconds later the white couple reached the door and was promptly let in – with the guy outfitted in the same ensemble.
I ended up reading your "The Burden of Dating Black" which brings me to the reason for writing you.
I am just now completing editing on my latest book about human nature.
She blogs about sex(uality), intersectionality and invisibility every other week. Tweet with her at @Iam Bea Hinton and @filthyfreedom.
Like us on I first came across your writing in your article on being a biracial child of an absent white father/black woman and was curious to know more about you.
Over time I’ve found that the easiest way to change my ethnicity – change the way people treat me – is to change my company.
And the company that most defines us is, in fact, our choice in a mate.
