Dating other races
I’m not sure what the weather’s like in your neck of the woods, but those woods look like this out here: Before you seek out a warm body for your bed, please make sure he or she isn’t an utter disappointment. Send your inquiries to [email protected], or find me on Twitter @etbowser. Here’s today’s question: It’s 2015 and y’all are still out here fussing about melanin levels? Complaining about who someone else is dating like it’s any of your business.
