…. Obviously she knows she is dating a black man. What I think she meant was he ain’t a street dude. Not all black men are from the hood or about that lifestyle. So I think she meant that he ain’t a gangsta but she said it wrong.
I’ve gotten to know her very well and she actually did clarify. She did not mean he wasn’t “hood or about that lifestyle.” She meant that she was a White woman who doesn’t see color, which she now understands is highly offensive. And she and I both know that not all Black men (or men of any ethnicity for that matter) are “hood.” That's a horrible misconception in this country that we are trying to eradicate.
