Black girls prefer white guys

opinion

I was talking to my friend, Kim, as we sipped cocktails at a bar in Hollywood. She followed my gaze. She raised an eyebrow and slurped on her vodka cranberry. Some background might be helpful here.

I'm black and my friend Kim is white, as was the guy in question. He also shaved his head and, apparently, that threw my friend for a loop.

Since I'd known her I'd mostly dated black guys. Black girls prefer white guys actor who'd given me his head shot as soon as he learned I was a TV writer. The musician who serenaded me at the Dresden between Marty and Elayne's sets.

And the one or two white guys in the mix had hair. Are you a veteran of L. We want to publish your story. Two weeks later, I climbed in the passenger seat of the bald white guy's truck when he picked me up from my apartment in Miracle Mile.

What’s changed in five years?

Hmm … he drove a pickup truck. And I knew from talking to him on the phone that he was from the South. I smiled as he told me he'd made a reservation at Ammo. So far, so good. I liked that place. As we drove along, I surreptitiously glanced at him — he was wearing a nice suit, having come straight from his office to get me.

He had mentioned he was a lawyer, so I'd already mentally checked the box for gainfully employed. But something else was on my mind. No matter how advanced a society we think we are, the "Black girls prefer white guys" that we're post-racial is laughable. Over the years working in numerous writers rooms as the only black writer, I'd become a pro at deciphering comments white guys made:.

This guy was from Georgia. To be fair, I'm from the South. Raised in Florida, I know about chewing tobacco, gator farms, 2 Live Crew, y'all, and the Confederate flag.
