You too nice your dating partner
Those stories ring hollow, because they ultimately amount to a futile attempt to amass enough exceptions to disprove the rule.
I think of all that CRUNK club-hopping I did in ATL back in the early days of the CFC.
It was clear to me that he wasn’t really that interested in a serious thing with any of the girls at the bar that night. But why the cold shoulder, from a brother I’d never met?
Why the unique snub reserved for the one fat girl in the crew?
Even so, one could argue that these mainstream films reflect the desires of white America, or more to the point, white men, and not Black men, which up to this point is the only group of men I’ve dated.
But with brothers I find, that they, too, have internalized a particular relationship to the body-type most associated with the mammy figure.Nothing can make me dance with abandon like a smoke-filled club strung out on CRUNK.
