As a white female, I have found that it is easier to keep my mouth shut
when it comes to my attraction to black guys. When I reveal this to people,
I am most commonly met with a surprised reaction, and then asked with a
displeased undertone “why?” The vast majority of the time this question
is brought up by white males. It seems as though interracial couples are
still taboo in a nation that prides itself on democracy and equality.
