All I can say is that I hope I never make any of my friends feel as though they have to choose between their sexuality, race, or friendship. I hope that if I were ever with a woman of any race she didn't feel like I considered it some sort of titillating fetish thing. I value the heritage of those people in my life. I value what I learn from them as I learn from those people in my family from different religions. BTW, I don't think any of the stereotypes of the black man would ever come to mind if I had to describe you.
