    Why date outside of your race?

    Did you just happen to fall in love with someone of a different race or do you simply not dating your own race?I dated and married for all of the wrong reasons. I guess I deserved what I got.I'm a light skinned black woman. I've faced discrimination from both blacks and whites. For most of my life I dated guys that were black, white, Latin and Asian. It was my last experience with a black guy...
