Broome, Relationships, Race Relations. I'm still single, dating still sucks and I'm starting to wonder: do I just make things more complicated than they need to be? You're letting someone into your culture, allowing them to see your world, and know your identity, which is really special. Whose job is it to speak up when racism rears its head? Throughout history, Aboriginal women and many white women also have had to protect themselves from white men.

That said, there is limit to how many ignorant racist perspectives a person of colour can endure, and I shouldn't have to continuously defend myself, my race, or my people.

Why dark-skinned black girls like me aren't getting married
But before I start getting jiggy with a vanilla slice, my thought bubble bursts and I catch myself thinking, is he attracted to black girls? But I'm dating someone who isn't Aboriginal, I dread other types of conversations because our whole relationship depends on how they pan out. I asked her if she would date a white man. Most couples will get to a point in their relationship when things start to get a bit more serious.
