This is a touchy topic, as Ernest Baker wrote in Gawker:"There are self-hating Black men who date white women for contrived and pathetic reasons, and I hate them.
The fact that you are Black and your partner isn’t doesn’t mean she or he isn’t prejudiced against other people who look like you or that your partner can't commit racist acts.
A person could hold on to racist beliefs and still believe that “you’re one of the good ones."I met my first girlfriend during my sophomore year of high school. Race wasn’t the only reason why we broke up within weeks, but the fact that I was a Black boy certainly didn’t make things easier.
Racism is a beast whose tentacles touch everything, from public policy and interpersonal interactions to academia and the Academy Awards.
People interact with that monster in various ways, including ways that reinforce white supremacy.
