friends telling me to not date a white boyWatch
I don’t think your friends are your friends. They’re meant to be supporting and accepting of your decisions tbh. Sure, they’ve got a point about the slave stuff but are we really going to resort to that mentality?
I personally think you should do what you want to do tbh, if they don’t like it then it tells you a lot about them.
ok so i'm black and my closest friends are also all black. there's this boy who has had a crush on me for almost two years. i have a crush on him too and i'm 90% sure he knows that i do and i know that he does and my friends are also VERY aware of the situation (and im pretty sure his friends are aware too). one of my friends asked me if i would actually go out with him if he asked me out and i said yes then she did this shocked face. and my other friends were basically trying to put me off him by saying why would you date a white boy, they're colonisers/slave masters stuff like that. i thought they were just joking so i brushed it off but then more recently we were talking about our celeb crushes and i mentioned a few celebs who i thought were attractive but then as soon as i mentioned a white actor they laughed as if i said something outrageous and then called me a white man's wh*re. then they were telling me that they would never date a white boy and that i shouldn't consider it either because his parents might be racist or if we get into an argument he'll call me the n word ????? i know i can choose whoever i want to date and it's not up to my friends but it's a bit :-/ when they say this type of stuff especially when they knoww i have a crush on some guy who happens to be white. and if i actually do end up dating this guy, it might be a bit awkward since my friends would have some type of grudge against him for being white. and im not really offended by them calling me a white man's wh*re but im just a bit confused as to why it's such a big deal that a black girl finds some white guys attractive??? is it 1832??
