American dating muslim style

After trying to talk to her parents about the idea of being introduced to me, she said her parents were not budging on the “racial issue.” To clarify on what she meant by that, I said, “So her parents didn’t want her to talk to me because I am Black.” My friend was quite apologetic over the phone after confirming this as the reason, but she deserved no blame in this situation as she was just trying to help a brother out.

The gist of the critique is that both of these South Asian actors from Muslim backgrounds chose white women as their main love interest, and by doing so, they perpetuate the idea that those with fair skin, and more specifically white women, are the epitome of beauty and desirability.

About three days went by and I did not hear anything.

In my experience, silence after a few days is a subtle yet definite way of saying “BYE FELICIA.” Therefore, I texted my friend to follow up.

The Muslim American community is extremely diverse by the numbers.

Even though there are vastly more opportunities to meet people now than there ever were in the past, it’s still hard to connect with others.

She began by saying “I’m so sorry but,” which is never a good sign.

She continued to say that the reason for the hold-up was that the girl was trying to talk to her parents first.

Although she assured me not to worry, as the girl was probably still thinking about it, I already started losing interest.
