And since I don’t have the full story, I can only leap to some conclusions.Forgive me if I get something wrong, because I really like my advice to be responsible. One has to do with whether you should let your parents come between you and your boyfriend.Blacks are mostly Roman Catholic, and the Indian’s are Hindus – I don’t know that you can get much more different than that, maybe Jewish and Southern Baptist?
In the September issue of Essence Magazine in a special report on sex and love, four couples talk about interracial dating when the woman is black, and the man is, well, not. I haven’t seen that combination outside of Caribbean heritage.So we have a Polish guy, a Vietnamese guy, a Caucasian guy, and an Indian guy. I remember visiting my cousins in Arima (Trinidad) when I was a teenager, and meeting a “Dougla” (not a nice word depending on the circles you travel in – so don’t use it.Without even reading the rest of the story, WHY did I assume the couple was from Trinidad? That is what I was told that he was, and that was the first time I had ever heard the word.) boy that couldn’t stop professing his love for me. I couldn’t see that there was any black in him, just that his hair had a slight curl on the ends, but my cousins made sure I knew he wasn’t “all the way Indian.”Being raised in the states, there were some nuances of Trinidadian culture that I didn’t understand.It's funny because my next film that I'm writing is all about online dating so I'm learning all about it.I am Indian girl and my boyfriend is an older black man. He is a great guy – sweet and caring and thoughtful.
