After deciding to enroll at Towson University, friends of mine joked about me going to “the hood” and the violence in the Baltimore area, but I was never worried.
Fitting into this lifestyle felt more natural to me than living in Rochester ever did.

I love arguing about whether “Love Jones” or “Love and Basketball” was the greatest Black love story of the ’90s. But of course eventually I entered a relationship with him because it only made sense. My family slowly began to pick up on the fact that this was more than a collection of dates and did not necessarily approve. Though I never felt “inferior” throughout the course of our relationship, race was an issue.
I could never date outside of Black men, I thought. My two closest friends were shocked but very supportive and liked him a lot. I remember the first time it was brought to my attention. When I would experience “exotic otherness” at work, I would talk to him about it and he would suggest that I was overreacting when I knew I wasn’t.

This was the place I was born and raised; where nobody had to whisper the “n word” or hesitate to stick some feathers in their hair and paint their skin red as a sign of school spirit.Growing up in New Hampshire didn’t prevent me from making friends or dating guys who weren’t white.Summer of 1998, I exited a Target store with a guy I was seeing at the time.“Hey, come over here and talk to me,” a guy said standing with a group of friends. As I prepare for a Summer stint across the pond, I thought I'd repost this lovely piece written exclusively for The Creamin My by my favorite New Zealander, not to confused with Zoolander, Jim O'Don...
