I mentioned that too her and asked if it was my imagination ..... she said it was true, and it po'd her ..... sometimes when I wasn't looking a black man would come up to her and ask why she was dating white, when there were plenty of black guys out there who would want her.

Neither of us noticed any dirty looks from people of other races - white, asian or miscellaneous.

I've never seen or heard anything like that from middle or upper class people in Seattle though.

Nowadays I don't appeal too much to women, since I seem to have morphed into the twin of Jabba the Hutt. But on the rare occasions when a woman has shown interest in me, she was Asian (usually after we've had a "clever" type of conversation). Not in general by any means, most Asian women are as disinclined to look at me or talk with me as anyone else! But sometimes. I've always been caught off guard by that.
That shut the conversation down. I don't think anybody else could relate to that. A crackhead? Where do you even find one? I hope you did not mean to use a crackhead as an example of a typical black woman, nor a crackhead with a homeless man as a typical black female/white male relationship.

Sorry about that. It was a late night post ...... I think I mentioned that I'm a manic-depressive, so ordinary people might not relate easily.

We met at a Harborview Hospital dual-treatment addiction/mental health facility, she was a crack cocaine addict and supposedly schizo. We were released together and got a hotel room but were both homeless within a week, and wandered apart.
