Indian dating black man

17 Dec

Dark skinned people of my country have always been looked down upon as ugly, inferior and untrustworthy in that particular order.

At that moment I admit, I didn’t feel like I did anything out of the ordinary.

In addition to the negative color bias, society has defined a particular standard for beauty which can be seen on every billboard from Maine to Washington.

Invariably always, the standard of beauty tends to be Caucasian.

Until I met Shalonda, I never dated or attempted to date any black woman.

While I couldn’t care two hoots about peer acceptance, prejudices (based on false assumptions about “date-ability”) always restricted me.
