Every time I see an attractive white woman on OkCupid, I think about those inevitable moments when hanging with white folks when everything is cool and the close friend says something wildly racist and I just gotta get up and leave.

And I pause...

@amsomniac You know, I generally like Kat because I think she is trying to do some good, but I got into it with her a few years ago because she has a really high tolerance for negotiating with white people's bullshit, to the point where, I felt, it puts Black folks in danger.

Her patience with racists really rubs me the wrong way because it feels like she really wants to be the _special Black_ that prioritizes white acceptance over what is right.

But maybe she's changed. It was some time ago.
