So, I was at a triple birthday party on Saturday. Two of my girls and a girlfriend of theirs. Homegirl # 1 is married to a man in a fraternity. Homegirl #2 is dating one of his frat brothers from the same chapter. So naturally a bunch of members of their frat also came out to celebrate. It was a college reunion of sorts, everyone's sitting around, drinking, having a wonderful time.
I walk in about an hour after all my peeps got there and the first thing they do is hook me up with my buddy Pat, Patron that is. So the drinks get to flowing and everyone's feeling WON-DER-FUL.
In walks another of their frat brothers and he's on a date. *side eye* Now, you can't just be bringing new dates to parties without giving folks fair warning. We're a tight knit group of folks and, though I'd love to say we welcome everyone with open arms, that's not necessarily the case. Now folks, not only was she new, she was white.
T, OMG, how can you even call out that she was white? You're a reverse racist for saying that. What if you were dating a white guy and his friends called you out like that on a blog? Are you going to treat your kids, brothers and/or nieces gfs and bfs like that... OMG, T, OMG?
Yeah, yeah, yeah now that you're finished judging me, let me just reiterate that I have no philisophical problem with interracial dating. I found out that night that I have an emotional problem with it, but I can't control my emotions, only my reactions and I had no intention of reacting. None whatsoever. The problem is you can be extremely well intentioned, but what you can't do, is plan a reaction for the unexpected. Stuff just comes up and you're like oh boy, this has never happened before and look at me, I'm acting an ass.
So the scene was a party full of black women who were drinking heavily and feeding off each other's ignorance. I'm not going to lie to you, our reaction, no matter how appropriate or inappropriate, was HILARIOUS.
It went a little something like this:
Me: Did Bubba just walk in?
Friends: Yeah, and he brought a date.
Me: A date? I thought he was still with ex #2?
Friends: I don't know girl, but he brought a date and she's white?
Me: He brought a white girl? WHERE?
Friends: right there
Me: *Falls out all over my seat like a baby having a temper tantrum* OH WOW
Friends and I: Laughing uncontrollably, dramatically cupping our mouths, eyes widened, taking shots and drinks to the head to keep from saying something ignorant, rude or heartlessly cruel.
*Bubba leaves his date seated at the head of the table and walks over greet the group*
Bubba: Hey T
Me: HEY BUBBA, GOOD TO SEE YOU BOO!!!
