I went to homecoming with my best friend, who happens to be black. One woman asked my mother if we were dating because she was concerned about our relationship. First time I experienced racial discrimination (though not the first time I had seen it).

    Jaden, your mother had an opportunity to confront racism by pointing how to the woman how ignorant she is. Did she?

  • My Japanese boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year. He still hasn’t told his father because… I’m American.
