Something Old (Racism) for "Something New"



Estimated reading time: 28 seconds.

"No matter how cute the guy, dating another race can be a hassle. But sometimes you have to shake things up." 
-Description as posted on Netflix


As poorly worded as the first part of this description is (hassle), personally I can excuse it because it seems like a misguided attempt to acknowledge the difficulties of engaging in a romantic relationship that some see as anomalous.

But "shake things up"??? I'm not some mammy carnival ride for you to bring home to your racist family to " shake things up " from your normal white girl routine. Yuck...
