5…4…3…2…1…Ah, fuck it.
Happy new year. I don’t see the big hype about the thing. On Sunday when the ball dropped in Times Square, me and my mom was like “okay, time for bed”. That was the end of it. Maybe I’d feel a tad different if I was not in my house when it struck 12. Or in my house making out with someone fucking gorgeous. Either way…I probably wouldn’t be so bitter. This is my down months. Up until March. So if I seem PMS-y, don’t mind it.
In other news, it doesn’t even feel like January here. It’s been so warm that the freaking trees are confused! How so? Some trees in Central Park are blooming. Yes, blooming. In January. Even some green stalks are visible in my own flower bed. Global warming has fucked this place up so lovely, that nature doesn’t know if it’s coming or going. In this pace, it’s going to snow in April. Wouldn’t be surprised. It has happened before. Not to mention that we might break a 118-year record. That poor record. It won’t have a chance to play again.
So besides the disappointing New Year’s Eve festivities, nothing much has been going on. Nothing much except I’ve been playing more video games than anything else. Twilight Princess=freaking awesome.
Questions Answered: Would you be offended?
On the last blog, I gave everyone a chance to post their opinion on what this girl said about “black men date white women because they can take advantage of them”. I got a good amount of replies on that. So here are three of the replies.
I’d be offended but I wouldn’t even let it show. I’m open-minded enough to have no problem letting
someone else make a fool of themselves – it’s not just the attitude I disagree
with, but the way in which she presented herself.
I’m African-American and I have dated outside of my race, my sex, my social
class, whatever. I think anybody has the potential to be manipulated and that
has little to do with race and more to do with the fact that there are some true
assholes on this earth. I’m a historian, and I think that all of the attitudes
on interracial relationships can be traced way back.
yes I would be offended. I know personally, I tend not to date black guys because of the way all of the ways Iâ€™ve spoken too have approached me. Itâ€™s usually with a, â€œHey babyâ€¦â€ And Iâ€™m not into that. I am no oneâ€™s baby, at least not until theyâ€™ve dated me long enough to claim I am. I donâ€™t see what the big deal is about a black girl dating a white man. Iâ€™ve dated both black and white men and honestly there is no difference. Like I said it depends on how you approach that determines if Iâ€™m going to want to exchange numbers with you.
Iâ€™m a white girl, who is racially OPEN – white boys, black boys, spanish boys, whatever – lol it gives me more options that way.. I donâ€™t go after any kind of race specifically, I just like who I like and give whoever is DESERVING a fair chance.. I would be offended, but I wouldnâ€™t throw a fit over that remark, just because I wonâ€™t lower myself you know? Iâ€™ve heard it ALL – black men will use me, white girl just goes after black guys to take them away from black women, etcetera.
I never met a guy who said he was attracted to me just because I was white, & I would never let anyone â€œbeat my assâ€ or use me or any of that lol – I would never pay anyone elseâ€™s bills, sorry!
Some guys have said itâ€™s their preference, & EVERYONE has preferences so thatâ€™s okay by me!
I donâ€™t know where that whole stigma came from, but it annoys the fuck out of me badly. It makes NO SENSE whatsoever. Iâ€™ve even gotten some comments that I wish I was black thatâ€™s why I give black men a chance.. Um Iâ€™m proud to be what I am, white Irish girl from Boston lol, I love myself & I love my history.
I wish it was that easy to say itâ€™s just skintone, because I truthfully feel that way lol, but idk people always gotta make something from nothing.
Thank you, ladies. I’m glad more people think that that girl is ignorant. Well, so is 50% of the world’s population. What can you do about that?
And with that being said, I leave you with this:
Two peanuts walk into a bar. One was insulted.1
1Was insulted=wasn’t salted, for you slow individuals. I know, sad joke. Sad, but clever.
