I am not quite sure how to start this post. I this is just a rant and I've had a kind of crappy week and I don't think that I can handle much more stupidity at this point and if this offends you then I am terribly sorry.
Okay I am a black woman married to a wonderful white man. But since I have always dated white men I tend to know a good few black men who have only dated or mostly dated white women. You can talk to each other without having to explain why you date who you date. I don't know why but lately I have run into a few men that I know and it seems like every time I speak to one of them their girlfriends (white women) sit there and stare at me like I'm crazy. Not just that but I work in a library and if a white woman comes in with her significant other and I have to help them she keeps looking back and forth between the two of us like there is some black sign language that we are using to hit on each other. I really want to turn to them and go "you would have to be more worried if he were white" but what is it that it seems that a lot (not all but a lot) of white women seem so insecure when they are with black men or is it just that these type of women would be insecure no matter who they are with? I think I would go crazy if I got upset every time Andrew talked to a white woman. How can you have that kind of energy to stay jealous? I don't know but I just needed to vent before I go back to work.
