*Enter the scene*
SBM and his good friend Denise are driving through the local bar section of their Alma Mater, a Primarily White Institute in the ACC. There are currently Lets take a look at their conversation.
Denise: *pointing out the window* “Ugh … that just makes me sick.”
SBM: “Please tell me your not talking about what I think your talking about?”
D: “I’m talking about him right there!”
SBM: “Please tell me your talking about the guy throwing up on that dog.”
D: “No, I’m talking about that black guy talking to that white girl! What is he doing?”
SBM: “Idk … finding out the time?”
D: “He is disgracing every black man everywhere … that’s what he is doing!”
SBM: “We represent some 10% of this campus. Dude looks like he is more in tune with white culture also … whats the problem?”
D: “Ugh … don’t let me ever see you doing that.”
SBM: “Their in abundance. Why can’t I?”
D: “Well we won’t be friends anymore and I’ll tell every black girl here you have herpes.”
If there is one thing that I learned during my time in college is that white people have given up the title as the most racist group of people in America. Sure you have small sects which still want to “exterminate” us, but their kids are great. Their all nice, introducing themselves, letting them call them crackers and whatnot, and just so interested and intrigued by things we see as normal (like a wave cap … a 2 week explaination). You still run into a healthy dose of ignorance, but overall the race boundary has started to come down a lot.
All of the other minorities are too worried about only representing 3% of the school and too busy getting in touch with their parents culture through cultural societies and other events.
But there is one group that continued to discriminate and hate. One group that continued to spew their hate filled message to every ear that would listen. One group that worked hard to errode Martin Luther King’s dream along with the dream of countless black athletes men in search of “something new”. So, besides financial derivatives and the laws of polymorphism … I learned that:
Black Women are the most racist group in America
Yes … pure racism … when it comes to dating at least!
As a result of the programs I particiapted in, the make-up of my school, and the virtual rainbow coalition that was my dorm freshman year … I’ve befriended someone in all of the major races (except Native Americans … where are ya’ll hiding?). As race always comes up at some point, when it comes to relationships … their almost always open to dating outside the race. Even if its not their cup of tea, they often pine for someone outside of their own race and rarely ever detest others for doign it.
But not when you ask a “sista”. For a black person to date a non black person is a crim worst than spitting on Martin Luther King’s grave. It’s worst than not knowing who Bernie Mac is. According to them, it will get your black card pulled quicker than admitting to never watching “Good Times” or detesting “Sanford & Son”.
I wish I had some insightful explanation, some humorous reasoning, or just something to explain this disdain for interracial dating by black women … but I don’t. They’re crazy … throw rocks at them.
And that’s it … I’m out!
