2. Of course it exists, anyone who claims otherwise is blind.
The last date I went out on, years ago, was with a dude who had a darker color than me (OK, black, but really just a nice deep brown). Places I had gone to before welcomed me without hesitation, but when we showed up together they reacted quite differently.
While waiting for an elevator to go up to a Cheesecake Factory when my True Christian™ hateful bitch sister came for a visit on another coast, she walked into the elevator, then ran out when some college guys got on. You guessed it, the college guys had dark tans, or lots of color, or whatever.
I was raised to be a redneck, a hateful asshole with a few bible quotes and an abhorrence to anything "other." I rejected that, and am still rejected by my asshole family.
I'm fine with that.
However, I do have a problem with the ongoing hatred among some in the POC who hate gays, using the same arguments used against them in the past.
