My “I hate Black Women/Pro-Trump” hairline and I do not get along.

A few years back, I was at my favorite bar in Brooklyn. I had just broken up with my too-young, too-attractive girlfriend, and I was in my feelings.

The bartender, a Black woman who knew me and my ex, looked at me for a moment and said, “You know, to look at you, I wouldn’t have thought you dated Black women.”
