Because I had a nice conversation with a good friend.

Titled that because I’ve had other friends get heated for no reason about the same subject.

Interracial dating. It’s a thing, get over it. I have never dated someone who was black, not because I don’t want little gorgeous chocolate babies or because I want other colors of the rainbow children… IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH CHILDREN DAMNIT!

I haven’t dated anyone who was black because I just haven’t. Simple as that. I’ve had crushes on many boys from different races but because of whatever reason I just have not dated someone who was black. I have dated Spanish guys, Asian guys, and white guys though. One “friend” suggested that I must not like that I am black… false. I come from a very awesome family of Black/Asian people. A proud lineage of people of a mixed culture. Although I am “mixed” I do identify as black solely because that’s what people see first and I choose not to try and fight that assumption because it does not affect me in any significant way. I love me for all of this bodaciousness. 

So, I do not date outside of my race because i hate my race and I do not date outside of my race because of the potential babies. Where does that leave me, I wonder?

I must just date people that I click with? No possible way, right? No way there is some kind of ulterior motive!

But that’s the thing, I DO just date people I click with. It’s not a controversial statement of me being “color blind” it’s a plain, matter of fact statement that I just date the people, regardless of race, that I have a lot in common with. 

This is a picture of my manfrand [boyfriend for those who are not familiar with me and my terms lol]. He is obviously not black. He is half Mexican and half Filipino which is kind of dope being that the other half of my family is also Filipino. I love him not for that but because he loves me and we share a common love for a lot of things. 

Being in an interracial relationship has not changed my life to some overwhelming degree. Being part of the BWAM/AMBW group has not made me more worldly or anything ridiculous like that. The most we have ever spoken about race is when he looks at my tumblr and sees all the race war stuff. Culturally, we don’t have a lot of differences. Lifestyle wise we don’t have a lot of differences… I just don’t get what the huge deal is sometimes besides the aesthetic and novelty of seeing the different, beautiful shades of people in general. 

This post is not meant to offend anyone at all. I just think that if you out actively seeking a romantic relationship with someone BECAUSE of their race then you’re idea of what true, unyielding love is got thrown into a paper shredder along the way. I think that when you make a genuine connection with someone, you shouldn’t be looking at outside factors such as, but not limited to, their skin color, what they are wearing or how much money they make. All of that shit, minus the skin color, can be changed. Now, if you are worried about what others in their cultural background may say, again, look at the connection with that person and tell everyone else to screw off. If someone told me I couldn’t be with my SO because his ancestors came up from Mexico a long time ago and make their food with a lot of spices I think I would actually ask them if they were stupid. Seriously. I’ve had similar discussions when I dated white guys, “But his people enslaved blacks.” Well, HE didn’t so… what do you want. 

TL;DR: Don’t date someone FOR or BECAUSE of their race. Don’t date them because you could make beautiful mixed babies with them. Don’t date them because you maybe hate your own race (I hope that isn’t a thing). Date them, connect with them, love them for their personality. Love them for the love they give back to you. Whether you are black, white, brown, green, gay, trans or otherkin THIS SHIT 

And fuck the haters. 

HAHAHAHA JUST DUMP AND BAKE! I’m laughing so hard. I swear I’m an adult!

"At Rio Americano High School in Sacramento CA, a student named Dejza, was violently assaulted by a vice principal, Matt Collier, for attempting to take back a piece of art with a political message that the administration didn’t like. She was put in a chokehold and slammed against the desk. When she tried to resist this unlawful abuse of authority, she was slammed and held onto the ground. Matt Collier laid on top of her, crushing her with his weight. Dejza could not breathe, and begged Collier to get off of her. Luckily, another faculty member came in and ended the situation. Dejza went to see a doctor for severe whiplash, and yesterday was her first day of physical therapy. Despite this being blatantly wrong and illegal, the administration has put her on suspension for resisting, and Collier was not disciplined. On the fifth day of her suspension, she will attend a meeting held by bias members of the administration to determine if she will be expelled.

They have tried to silence anyone who speaks out on social media, but today we have gathered in person for a silent sit-in protest.

Dejza has been wronged, and brutalized, and now she is receiving punishment. They’ve tried to silence her. They’ve tried to silence us.” -Grant Wright 

One of my friends Grant posted this on facebook and even though im not in Sacramento I want to help. This girl has been mistreated by a full grown man who may never be punished. I want to help spread awareness. So please, spread this around. Let people know that this is NOT okay. The more support we have, the better. 

i’m so proud to have been a part of this today but you guys please please please please reblog/spread this around any way you possibly can it’s so important and her story needs to be heard by people outside of our city because what this man did is so so so incredibly far from okay

arrest Matt Collier. protect and redeem Dejza.

If he doesn’t go to jail I think we can all clearly see that there is a huge, unyielding problem.

Take 5 minutes out of your morning/night to educate yourself on this young man LL. The brother was LYNCHED. “Crackertown”, North Carolina. Been gone since the morning of Aug. 29th. Day of his first football game of his senior year. All that hard work in the summer for nothin’. #JusticeForLennonLacy

This needs more light..

A little more information, 17-year-old Lennon Lacy was found hanging from a swingset on August 29th and cause of death was identified as asphyxia due to hanging. Police are calling it a suicide - as in no foul play involved. HOWEVER, Lacy’s mother, while looking at her dead son in the body bag, noticed a lump on his head that she hadn’t seen the day before. It was not noted in the autopsy. He was also found wearing different shoes, not the size 12 gray and neon green Jordan’s he bought a few days before, but a pair of 10.5 white sneakers with the laces removed that his family did not recognize.
Lacy was also in a relationship with a 31-year-old white woman. They were forced to lie about their relationship because in the small North Carolina town of Bladenboro, where 86 Black people were lynched between 1882 and 1968, an interracial relationship between a 17-year-old and 31-year-old caused some “tension”. Lacy’s neighbors were instructed by police to take down a confederate flag and sign that read “N*****s Keep Out’.
Just days after Lacy’s funeral, his grave was desecrated, taking the flowers 40 feet away from his burial site and digging a hole in the plot. (x)
Keep doing research. Keep spreading the word. Don’t forget him. #JusticeForLennonLacy
