Interracial dating psychology
And I spent most nights below 125th Street, in karaoke bars and at poetry readings.
After living in Manhattan for a decade, I had dated casually but hadn't met anyone who fit my husband model.
But in my late teens and early 20s, this didn't prevent me from assuming my own racial blind spots, especially when it came to love.
Turns out that the girl who "looked like the world" had a very muddled view of it. When darker-skinned men wanted to date me, I assumed it was because they considered me a trophy for my light skin.
Antonio was turning around my perception of Mexican guys, but I could still hear my father's voice.In hindsight, my distrust of men didn't get me far.
