Interracial dating white
I felt this most acutely in communities I’ve developed as a feminist.
When tennis star Serena Williams, a black woman and arguably the greatest athlete of our time, announced her engagement to Alexis Ohanian, the white co-founder and executive chairman of Reddit, she was hit by a furious backlash.
His reply—”no, I don’t think they’d care”—filled me with dread.
And when he admitted that I’d be the first non-white woman to meet them, I almost jumped off the train.
People of color are not seen as desirable, funny, or smart.
And we’re not past the point where a white co-star or love interest is sometimes necessary to get the funding for movies telling the stories of people of color.
