My best friend is one of the sweetest, funniest, greatest guys in the world. He'd give his left leg if he knew someone that needed it. He has an awesome personality, a wonderful sense of humor, he's adorably cute, and he has determination that'll lead him to the edge of the Earth and back. He's also single, although he tries desperately to find the right girl, each attempt leaving him more heartbroken than before. And now, the real shocker (are you ready for this?)....he's black!!! ::Gasp!!:: While living in the south, he continuously still runs into racial barriers, his most recent being tonight. He met this girl online, he fell for her pretty bad. They had their first date today (a lunch date), and he was happier than I've seen him in a long time. He was giggling, for crying out loud! He sent her this sweet little email, saying he had a really good time, and he wanted to see her again. How does she respond? "I can't see you anymore, my parents don't allow me to date black boys." She knew from the beginning of his skin color. She couldn't have mentioned this before agreeing to meet him? She couldn't have mentioned this before he got his hopes up, and thought he'd finally found someone worthwhile? This is the 21st century, for Christ's sake! I myself am white. But I can see him for everything he's worth, and any girl would be lucky to end up with a guy like Rashad. And now he's heartbroken once again, leaving me to deal with his shattered self esteem, over things he has absolutely no control over. More than anything, I want to find Lil Miss Jenny Lou, and kick her sorry ass into the ground for hurting him. But more than that even, I want to be able to go to my friend, and tell him that evreything's going to be alright, and give him a big hug, because I know he needs one. Instead, I'm forced to send him an email saying what trash she is, and how he deserves better. Will he believe me? No. Because the same shit will happen again next week, or next month, or next year even, and he'll be destroyed once again. And there's nothing I can do to stop it...
As he so eloquently put it, "i have no idea when my skin color is gonna be done talking for me, but its really pissing me off."
I can understand that some people aren't into different races. That's a matter of opinion. But to let him think he had a chance, and then crush his happiness? Miss Jenny Lou, I'd like to think there's a special place in Hell for you, and you'll spend the next eternity being fucked up the ass with a big black dick*. I hope it hurts...a lot.
* I mean no disrespect to black guys, guys with big dicks, or anyone who partakes in anal intercourse. If it greatly offends anyone, I will willingly plead for a moderator to remove this line from my rant.
