What’s even more upsetting that this is not going away any time soon! I’m a tall white man, and when I enter the building or interact with certain white people, I get smiles and pleasantries but when I start speaking (since I have an accent) I see a drastic change in their body language and their true personality. My point is – with Trump supporters it’s not just white vs black it’s them vs everyone else.
OP, I completely agree and unfortunately can empathize with what you and your partner are enduring. I’m a white 33F from Texas who has dealt with sexism, assault, etc…and have always tried to do what is right. I was taught to stand up for myself and others. I moved to North Carolina and met a beautiful, gorgeous, loving man who is biracial. He’s the love of my life and has treated me unlike anyone else. He’s held me up and has completely opened my heart and mind. When we go out, we get looks.
