You’ve Been Black-Listed

| Romantic | May 18, 2017

(I’m on a first date with someone I’ve only spoken with briefly before this. Things already aren’t going well when he notices a black man sitting nearby.)

Date: *quietly so the man doesn’t overhear* “I’m scared of black people. Not because I’m racist. Just because I’m white.”

(Awkward silence.)

Me: *waiting for him to say that was some very poorly thought out attempt at a joke or something*

Date: *completely serious*

Me: “But isn’t that pretty much the definition of racism?”

Date: “No, of course not! It’s just being practical. You see-” *launches into extremely racist diatribe*

(Unfortunately, I didn’t feel safe ending the date early due to some things he’d said earlier. I had to sit through his whole rant, along with the following two on “the illegals” and “the libtards.” Needless to say, I did not call him back or answer any of his calls.)
