So I read a profile the other day and didn’t hesitate to send a message to him. Here it is:
*single blink* Ah yes, mild racism on Christmas Day via an online dating site. There is nothing I like more than dealing with this but not today.
While I would’ve blocked this guy after his first reply, I was bored and thought this would make a great post just to show y’all who think this is no longer an issue…that it’s still, in fact, an issue.
The rest of this conversation string went on and on because he needed to know the largest penis I’ve ever had. I said if I told him, it would come after him and force him to sit on it. While this conversation was happening, another lovely man reached out to call me a nerd but told me he could make me pretty. This philanthropist also implored I “quit speaking properly” because I’m black and should let my Africa show.
Racism isn’t just someone saying/typing “nigger” or whichever other paint-by-colour term goes with your race. Let’s be real – it’s a belief system that infects everything that rules your life. But let me tell you about MY belief system: your intent to make me feel anything less than worthy speaks volumes about how little you think of yourself. *triple snaps*
World, be better.
With that, I’m happy to announce the following after 12 years of online dating:
Hello, 2013. You. Look. Marvelous!!!
