Not to start anything... But it seems like I always got the MOST attention from sistas when I was dating a white woman. When I was single looking for a black woman I couldn't get the time of day. This lasts for a year or two and then I meet another white woman. Then I get attention from sistas again.
That is so damn true, and then once I'm with a white woman, sistas want to give me a hard time. I'm always thinking, "Where the hell were you when I was single! Oh yeah. Now I remember. You wouldn't give me the time of day."
When I've gone out with a white or non-black woman, I haven't noticed that as much. I chalk it up to my "racially-unclear" look. If I'm with a non-black woman, I don't think people assume right away that I'm black, but maybe Middle Eastern or Latino. When I went to Puerto Rico, I had a couple of American tourists try to ask me directions in Spanish... That was comical!
It works the other way too. One of the only times I was ever stopped by a state trooper for a bullshit reason was when I had other people (all black) in the car with me. When I'm by myself driving, I almost never have that problem.
