Because we are at such a diverse college with a small Greek life, on campus we have not really encountered any huge confrontation or uproar due to our relatiomship.
Most of the time we even forget our relationship is considered abnormal.
Have a Happy Año Nuevo, everyone, and try an ano nuevo, if that’s your thing!
By: Courtney Griffin I am a 19 year old African American woman, so I have many prying, or curious, friends and family that want to know all about my dating and college life.
When they ask me who I am dating, their ears immediately perk up to the sound of his Hispanic last name when I state his name, and I immediately notice the surprised look on their face.
They expect me to be dating an African American man and are taken aback when I state otherwise.
I am sure they are friendly to each other, but outside of Greek life I do not notice many Hispanics and blacks with relationships as close.
That could just be because there are so few of us compared to other races.
Isn’t this crude, low-class, and tantamount to prostitution?
At least us white Americans of European descent know how to wine, dine and make a girl feel special before asking for the hot biscuit. Are Mexicans only interested in getting their rocks off?
