The recent rise in thug culture also paints an ugly picture that acting thuggish is the key to a black woman’s heart.
Many good, hard working men go long periods without sex, love and companionship thus becoming a blunt end of the joke – “Nice guys finish last.” BUT in countries like Brazil, Black men finish first and will have no shortage of attractive women who want to date, hook up or marry them.
As a painfully self-conscious biracial woman, I had struggled to date at an Ivy League school, and studying abroad was as much an escape as it was a necessary academic endeavor for an international relations major.
But I am also a European Union citizen, born in Hungary to a Hungarian mother and Nigerian father, and my optimism was tempered by the reality of my experiences living and traveling in Europe, experiences that taught me I was both Other and object.
We are the target of hate crimes, discrimination, random killings, and a host of other awful problems. Looking at the other inter-racial couples attending those weddings, I can say that Neelam is not alone. This is not a new phenomenon, and for many, this is quite mundane and ‘oh so 90’s’. Or, as I said before, this could be one of the many ways the younger generation wants to express their freedom and their choices. Neelam haha .so happened…lol Me doesn’t make sense Neelam we only date white guys…clear nuff? Neelam me and may desi gals…my passé, Me All I can say is wow, again 🙂 Neelam I have seen worse reaction…lol ……………… During last two months of this summer of 2010, I also had the pleasure of attending two beautiful inter-racial weddings. Or you can simply call it the normal thing for the new generation – plain and simple. This could be a perfectly normal thing, based on how the families and schools are integrated these days for all races and cultures. Me Are u okay if I use this ‘chat’ for a blog post…a post on ‘Some Indians abroad dating whites only’ ? A friendly warning: Take this post with a grain of salt, especially if you get indigestion from racial mix and deviations from the strict social norms. The ‘chat’ above is the ending portion of the conversation below. Luckily or unluckily, I ran into someone online, someone who is a part of this ummm … This ‘chat’ on the social network site is a quick glimpse into the psyche of the new desi generation abroad. By the way, I wish I could say that these are uncut and unedited conversations, but that’s not the case. The ‘chat’ spans over multiple sessions, you may notice from the time-stamps. The name and place have been changed to maintain anonymity.
