All Canadian women acquired the right to vote only in 1960, when Native American women were then given this right. In the United States, it was in the 1920s, though multiple structures stopped women of color, mostly African-American women in Southern states, from freely exercising their right until the 1960s. For many people, certain turning events in the history of oppressed groups seem to mark the end of the oppression against these groups. For Black people, it was the end of slavery; for Jewish people, it was the end of World War II; and for women, the right to vote. Now that all of this is behind us, why are these groups still complaining? Obviously, it is not that simple. In 2018, many women consider themselves feminists and aren't afraid to say it. But is the identification with this group a deal breaker when it comes to finding a boyfriend? I wanted to know what relationship young heterosexual men have with feminism, and I was quite surprised by the result.
If you’re a brown girl who’s into guys, you probably know what I’ll be talking about here. Coming from a predominantly white area with a past of internalized racism, your quest for the approval of the white man is just something you need to go through. Though I try not to care about anyone’s acceptance anymore, I will say that as a chocolate girl, I have a thing for chocolate colored hair. In other words: I kinda dig white guys...sometimes…but not only, obvi. Even if I wish they all had the social intelligence of Trevor Noah, most of them just don’t. Being close to my 21st birthday, I can say that I’ve seen a few try to slide into my dm's and red flags were usually quickly raised. After wrapping up my encounters, I’ve come up with a list: The 5 types of white guys you will date as a black girl. ENJOY!
