A Throwback Post – Why I Don’t Date White Guys

Sorry guys – it’s been one of those weeks. But here’s another oldie but goodie for you.
Years ago when I was in school I had these two friends Adam and Cory. They were the kind of white guys I hate now…loved hip hop and thought that made them “down”, called each other “bro”, you know the type. I really only tolerated them because Adam was kinda cute.

Anyway, these dudes were responsible for the only two experiences I’ve ever had with white guys – which is amazing if you consider that I grew up in London Ontario. One was the fabulous Bobby who kissed me for the first time in his parents’ bathroom next to the Elvis clock and with whom I got down ‘n dirty in his jeep on the grounds of Brescia College – where the nuns live in London.

I know – I was scandalous.

Anyway, the other we’ll call JP. And JP was, well, straight up whiter than the whitest white man. Let’s take a look:

He was from PEI
He played hockey
He had some kind of mullet
But ole JP had two things going for him: he was adorable and he was riding my jock hard. So yeah I let him take me out a couple of times and yes I went home with him one night. 

We lay on his bed and it was lovely. Oh, so lovely. Until JP had um, an equipment malfunction?

“Poor thing” I thought. Because as embarrassed as I was, I knew he had to be absolutely mortified. “I’m sorry!” he nearly sobbed. “I’m so sorry!” “It’s okay” I murmured encouragingly. I really felt bad for him. Until this:


“I’m so upset! I waited my whole life to be with a black girl and here you are and look!”(gesturing southward)

Um, yeah. so not only have you wasted my time, and left me with blue “balls”, but you thought it was a good idea to tell me I’m the living manifestation of some massa-mammy fantasy you’ve been harbouring?!?

I was not impressed. But not wanting to kick a “man” when he’s down (literally), I calmly got up and left, not letting on just how much I wanted to smack his pasty face. 

but then
but THEN
but then he never called me!

bag lady. digital nerd. beauty junkie. shoe whore. i'm a sucker for big words and box-fresh kicks. know a little bit about a lot of things and have something to say about everything.
