Anonymous asked: I literally have the same issues when i see an 'artsy' black guy, that he'll only be into white hipster type girls. uhhhhh
We always have to worry about whether or not a guy “likes black girls.” always, With white men, Asian men, Black men, or any other kind of men, that’s always something we’re forced to take into consideration. It’s so disheartening navigating the dating world as a black woman (cis, trans or otherwise) no matter how attractive you are.
and then when you do find the guys who are, you have to worry about fetishization and constantly checking them about their misogyny.
The phrases I always hear from the guys I date, which are mostly black men tbh are: “I’ve never dated a black woman before, but I like you because you’re not like the ghetto/ratchet girls.” ”I love that you don’t wear those gross weaves and stuff” “Yeah you’re black but you don’t really act black” “You’re kind of like a black white girl”
Like these are supposed to be compliments! Like they expect me to gush about this gross ass shit. It’s so exhausting, so damn exhausting and I have given up hope.

'I toss out a few more quick questions. Director you’d like to work with? "This Steve McQueen guy seems really interesting" Food guilty-pleasures? "All of them. I’m a foodie. I love it ALL" Binge-watched shows? “Downton Abbey, Orange is the New Black, American Horror Story, Homeland, Nurse Jackie. Yeah. I watch them all.” Favorite Holiday? "I have a six-year-old little girl and I try to keep as much magic in her life for as long as possible before the world intervenes. Christmas just allows so much of that."'— Gina Torres for Bello Mag
