I went to a predominantly white high school where I was one of maybe five black kids.I grew up thinking that because I looked different, I somehow wasn't good enough.I was in a new city and in a completely new situation.
What does it mean to be uncomfortable about interracial dating in 2014? Why are so many people advocating a "stay with your own race" mentality?
I had dated a few guys before, all assholes, and I didn’t think many people would show interest in me.
I looked down at my fingertips, stained deep mocha from my foundation, and felt self-conscious.
After five years of my boyfriend and I dating on and off, I think my mom has come to love him almost as much as I do.
It didn’t seem to matter anymore what he looked like.
