Dating black women cape town
When I took my partner to England for the first time last year, an uncle reproached me for not "warning" him that she was black.
Even more strange, my English friends kept mistakenly calling my partner by my black ex-girlfriend's name. These are the types who will openly shake their heads and turn up their noses.
Over the past 3 years, I've seen this fact made manifest countless times. People literally stop in their tracks, their jaw falls open and their brain suddenly seems to malfunction. Some days I can make myself ignore it, but sometimes I'm tired, and I just want to be able to hold hands with my partner without feeling people's eyes on us from all sides. Other times I think about telling people that if they're so damn interested by us, we'll let them take a picture for R20.
They've joked about my "jungle fever," or implied that I obviously just have a "thing" for black girls, or that I always have to be different.
In their eyes, this is confirmed by the fact that I just so happen to have had two black girlfriends in a row.
Again, they don't seem to stop to think that maybe I love my partner for who she is, not for her color.
They just think I have a thing for "black girls" so therefore they also have a chance to be with me.
