Hey guys, meet your first black girlfriend! Her name is Akilah Hughes, and she’s a writer and comedienne. Lucky for you, this isn’t her first time at the interracial relationship rodeo — so she knows exactly what to say when it comes to the “unspoken anxiety” and those “cringe-worthy moments” that are pretty much an inevitable part of the “white guy falls for black girl, foot-in-mouth syndrome ensues” narrative. In fact, she’s so familiar with it that she’s gone right ahead and cleared some of the big questions up for you in one brief, hilarious video. So go ahead and get the fried chicken. She doesn’t care! [via Refinery29]

  • The man I married was also a “first timer”, but it didn’t make a difference because he is respectful. He was open to learning about me from me as opposed to making ignorant comments. In other words, he was openminded.

    Black women in IR relationships just do the most.

      My opinion of the piece, other than the girl being very pretty, is that it is meant to be comedic (in other words, don’t take it personally). While this may be the experience of many, it is also not the experience of many.

    I’m prepared for the thumbs down but I just can’t. Too much trouble and explanations. Latino sure, white I’ll leave him to you.
