Racist dating black girl
But in this episode of her True Tea series, Kat shares how she’s since come to realize how her “preferences” were actually informed by white supremacy.
Her honest reflections offer a lot to think about – like how you’ve been influenced by the beauty myths society teaches to all of us.
I, again, am not someone who gets upset with people being like, “Oh, I don’t like black girls,” because okay, good for you.
Why would I want to deal with somebody who’s not interested in me?
Why do you prefer a person of this race or that race or that look? I think when you really start to think about these things and really start to digest these things and really start to be honest with yourself about that, you can start to realize that this is messed up. Why are you even feeling the need to put that in your profile that you prefer a person of this race or that race, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera?And to me, you have to really think about why you have these preferences.Whenever I ask someone, whenever I see someone who has racial preferences and I ask them why, when you ask somebody why they have these preferences, usually you’ll get an answer and that answer will usually reveal that these racial preferences are actually quite racist.If you’re not already subscribed, please feel free to subscribe so you can get your True Tea every single Sunday in your subscription box.
