White girl asian dating
White men have preoccupied me my whole life, from the schoolyard to the subway, but these days I’m seeing them differently.They’re no longer the object of my affection, a mirror for my self-worth, or an affirmation of my beauty. The night Trump was elected, I wrote about feeling lonely.
In the past, I’d have sought that comfort out in a white man, but that night I knew it wouldn’t be enough.
Despite knowing I can feel intimacy with white guys, right now what divides us feels like a chasm.
In every relationship I have with a white man, there comes a moment when they come to understand a simple fact of my life: that racism is an intimate part of my daily existence.
Later, I tried to convey how hurt I was that he didn’t say anything, but he didn’t seem to understand how bewildered I was.
There are, in my relationships with white men, so many moments like that.
