I feel like the movie Pariah shows how hard African American homosexual women have it in the world. Even though I am mixed, I have friends that have told me that in an African American family, their parents would prefer if they marry another African American. Which I also believe is a regional thing, because in the North I know plenty of mixed kids and I haven’t encountered anyone having a problem with dating outside of their race.

Unformatted text preview: have boy tendencies is one thing but to have your daughter do that and be a²racted to girls is a di³cult thing to cope with.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
