Dating is so much better in post-race America. Wow, this might take a few entries. So, I got set up with this white dude who is a friend of someone I work with. I didn't want to go out with him, as my track record with white guys is kinda ugly. We do pretty good until he decides to nickname me "cocoa" or talk about my caramel coated skin. I mean, I guess it's nice to be thought of as delicious, but really, I'm not food. That's just usually the start of it.

But I went out on this date, why not give things a chance, I figure if a black man can be elected to President of the United States, anything can happen.

"So am I you first black girl you've dated?" I figure I just cut to the chase.
"No, that's silly. What would make you think that?"
"Okay, the second?"
"Actually my first girlfriend was South Asian, then I dated two white women and three African American women. After a few years off, you know not taking anyone seriously, I dated a Native American woman who was older than me and that's why it didn't work out. I still wasn't ready for that kind of commitment, which she really wanted. I tried, but had to admit that I wasn't mature enough at that time in my life. My last girlfriend was Korean but that was long distance, and that was too hard. I just wanted to be close enough to hug her every day. Her parents loved me though. My ex-fiance, (I finally did become mature enough) was Mexican. I think I'm not forgetting anyone...oh, wait, Sue was also black. But I often try to forget her....psycho...."

I pinched myself under the table and ordered another drink.
