“Not for nothing,” someone said to Kia, “but if you’re a black woman signed on to OkCupid, chances are, you weren’t really trying to get with a black guy. Kia, if that was your intention, you’d ought to try out a interracial-specific dating site. Just a thought.”
To which Kia replied:
Look, I was on OKCupid because it is a free, well-designed and heavily populated dating site. Not because it was lousy with white dudes. So what, if I were looking for black men I would have been where, FriedChickenLovers.com? What the hell person? I was looking for men. Who gives a shit what race? The fact of the matter is that in the DC area (and in every area, really), the men who share my interests are generally white. If I meet a BLK or AZN or whatever guy who likes Daft Punk and Flipcup and 30 Rock, then lets get familiar with it. And no I’m not going to go to an “inter racial dating site” because again, I DO NOT GIVE TWO SHITS ABOUT RACE.
I, despite my fondness for Colonel Sanders and his competitors, and my actual possession of a couple of Daft Punk tracks, will not make the grade here, partly because of geographic considerations, but mostly because I’m surly, uncooperative, unappealing, and twice her age. Still, she’s making it impossible for me to ignore her completely:
I am going to slaughter each and every one of these wasteoids in their sleep with a dull rusty blade so as to cause as much pain as possible.
And it isn’t paranoia if you know the knife is coming down.
Disclosure: I have, somewhere, a profile on OkCupid, but I haven’t been to that site in well over a year.
