What's Your Flavor?

Now I'm an equal-opportunity kind of gal. Ever since I was young I've appreciated the opposite sex, regardless of race (shoot, my first kiss was with a Caucasian boy in the 2nd grade). It's funny because I remember telling my new African-American friends during my first semester of Uni that I had a thing for Caucasian boys. Some were shocked because they couldn't understand why and others were rather upset because they saw me as some kind of sellout; apparently I was insulting Black men by appreciating White ones. Not the case. I simply believed then, and still do now, that attraction and compatibility draw us to one another and they are not as limited by race as many like to believe.

 I encourage people to step out of their limited, prejudicial boxes and get to know people of different cultures/races because I assure you it is an enlightening experience. You feel more connected to this world as you expose yourself to new people and customs outside of your normal environment. This makes you more understanding and considerate of others, no matter how different they are from you. And in the case of dating/relationships, it definitely spices things up as well. So peeps, have you ever been in an interracial relationship? Do you think it's easier for people to just date outside of their race but then only marry within their race? Share your thoughts please, I want to know!:)
