Daughter is dating a black man
While I've dated other races, I'm mostly attracted to black men.
My eyes and heart tend to steer me in that direction.
They settled in a largely Mexican neighborhood in San Jose, California.
Thirteen years of dating boys outside my race and it took sitting down to write this essay to have the first, real conversation with my parents about interracial dating.
I used to say I didn't have a type, but if we go off consistency, I do.
Both minorities have been reported to confront more than cooperate in certain areas; reports have pinpointed competition for jobs as a factor.
What's crazy to me is that both groups, Mexicans and blacks, have been marginalized historically, and dealt with levels of oppression by systems, yet tension is between individuals.
