Even a Puerto Rican, seemingly close in cultural traditions, was out of the question. Just months prior to our conversation, he'd tried dating a Jamaican girl and dating your own ethnicity the differences were too much to bear. Judging by his recant of their short-lived love story, if one can even call it that, the two were polar opposites -- but I doubt race was the sole culprit of their dismantlement.

I am not racist, plain and simple. The girl I'm currently going somewhat spasmodic over is native, for the most part. I don't even consider that when I think about her.

As much as I love my wild and crazy grandmother, I never listened to this specific piece of wisdom.
