So I'm standing in line at the grocery store, and I see this gorgeous black woman in line behind me. She appears to be in my preferred age group, I establish eye contact. I smile and say hi. She says:
"Don't even think about it. I am not interested,"
I said, "I know you're not interested." She said, "How do you know?"
I said, "Because you're a black woman in Oregon. Black women here go for white men."
She said," That's a broad generalization."
I said, " I know about 9 black women here. They all either date or are married to, white men. And my 4 black male friends here- they all date or are married to white women."
She said, "I do like white men, but why did you smile at me and say hi?"
I said, " I was just saying hi. That's all."
That wasn't all. I lied.
I was hoping she was one of the rare black women here in Oregon that's interested in black men.
