He teaches me about German beer and soccer chants; I familiarize him with my Caribbean culture and Jamaican cuisine.Together, we like to listen to Lauryn Hill’s music and watch soul-stirring documentaries on incarceration.It’s not that I am not happy in my current relationship. Rather, I am torn between the progressiveness I naturally pursue and the regressive nature of a society that still makes me feel “less black” for dating a white man.That day in the grocery store, I stood in the checkout line behind that handsome black man with the Rice Krispies.If I waited for a black guy who liked me to apparate out of thin air, I would have waited a decade.

How can I support the advancement of black people if I have never let down my walls for a black man myself?

None of them have been the right fit for me, but that wasn’t because they weren’t black.

For us, that means learning about each other’s cultures.

Nevertheless, I still feel that, by not dating black men, I’m neglecting the shared history, solidarity and future prosperity of my fellow people.

As a young girl and even throughout college, I was frequently annoyed when my peers would suggest that I would magically find a partner if I exclusively pursued black men.
