But I won’t use this post to discuss my disgust with a large percentage of black men.

I do believe the lack of interest that black men have shown black women, has forced us to look elsewhere. I’ve created this guide to assist those white men who are interested in dating black women but who are absolutely clueless.

That’s racist.”Do they want you to be the liaison – or would they feel more comfortable speaking for themselves?

If they’re cool with you taking the lead, what, exactly, do they need you to say? I was pretty sure I understood his tone as joking, and I was also pretty sure he knew that this was another ridiculous Degrassi question, but I still knew that I had to own up to that mistake – and apologize.

You probably know by now that having an Asian girlfriend is a rite of passage for all white men.

"Date an Asian chick" has become akin to "Go skydiving" or "Live in New York" in the veritable white guy bucket list.

And I’ve developed this habit of asking my partner if he’ll do things with me, based on what’s happening on the show: “Will you do coke with me? I’d love to be able to give you a formula – some kind of foolproof ratio of number-of-white-to-POC partners – to help you determine if you’re racist because you don’t date enough outside of whiteness or if you’re racist because you too often date outside of whiteness.

As a woman, I know that sometimes talking about gender with a male partner – even if he’s well versed in all things feminist – can feel exhausting.

Sometimes I don’t want to chat with someone who only has a theoretical understanding of gender oppression.

Sometimes I want to talk to someone who just gets it.
