After interracial dating
He gave me polite answers and told me, a white boy from New York, that I should really make it over to Asia at some point."Do you speak Hebrew? I laughed at his question because I hadn't even said that I was Jewish yet, and I definitely didn't speak Hebrew.I'm one of those young chosen people who qualify as "Jew-ish" at best."Oh, I have a huge thing for Jewish guys.Actually, I stopped by their house before our second date and he thought I was just her friend and we had a blast, chatting and laughing and watching sports while she got ready.But the next time I stopped by to pick her up, after she had told him we were seeing each other, I felt the chill from him.
I had asked a friend who lived in Chicago if we could crash with his family. This friend was Mexican-American and came from a middle-class family.Of course, there are always the people who meet us for the first time and automatically assume the odds stacked against us. Wow." But what those people see in us says far more about who they are than it does about who we are.I'm a black girl who grew up in a predominately white neighborhood.Love their noses too." I quickly chugged the rest of my beer so the date could be over.I am Asian-American, and my college (and post-college) boyfriend was (and still is, I guess) half black and half white.
