"..had white friends and boyfriends"? So you too slept with the enemy, and now condemn him for marrying and having children with one? How strange indeed!
Raised by a Caribbean woman who loves white people more than life and had virtually no contact with my family ....ergo my socialization was no choice of mine and I went to 13 different schools where I was usually the outsider in the 1970s....I was usually the ONLY non white kid....this was before Asians, Indians and Latinos.
Funny thing is I was THRILLED to see other Black faces....my first crush was Michael Jackson and the kid that played Newt in The Learning Tree and Sidney Poitier not the white males that society said I should adore. Sure I watched the Brady Bunch It's only now decades later now that I understand that on several occasions my glee at seeing another Black face that was met by dismissal was due to those Black people not wanting to share their special token status or remind people of their Blackness.
In regards to the snark, I may sound like a British Valley Girl(???) at times, but I'm actually more pro Black than most Black people that never walked in the predominately white spaces I've been in. I lived in the 1980s without seeing another Black person in HS for a year until this mixed girl who ignored me came. I find it odd that people that were raised in mostly Black environments actually put white people on pedestals while an outlier like myself that knows them intimately is so not impressed nor ever desired to actually make a life or children with them.
I'm a kung fu, anime, sci fi geek Trekkie who loves rock, punk, classical music, foreign movies, museums and galleries... I can get a white man....but I'd rather a Black one, hopefully Caribbean.
....I also own The LOTR and Matrix special edition boxed sets and Godzilla is one of the great loves of my life.
