I Dont Get Why Teenage White South African Boys Dont Date Black Girls And Treat Them Differently

I am a black girl and i live in the western cape, South africa. I find that the white teenage boys are very indireclty rascist and they NEVER date black girls. It's as if they have this "we can kinda be friends but we definatley cannot date" policy. I mean i dont get it. Maybe im wrong and maybe there are a few but the ones that i have seen and know, definately dont date black girls. I know at my school, i am the only black person and the rest are white. there are ecspecially two boys who always treat me differently compared to how they treat the other girls (who are all white). they are friendlier with them, more relaxed and open. the first guy is nice to me, but half nice then the other half the way he treats me is with complete meaness and i know its because of my skin colour, it's as if my skin is a disease that white teenage boys are trying to keep their distance from. The other boy at my school is not as mean as the first but let me tell you what he usually does. This has happened SEVERAL times. After school i would be talking to my friend Jessica* and the boys would b playing pool, he would come up to Jess* while we are talking, offer her to play pool with them, not even look at me, turn around and walk away. i know this may seem like something simple but how would you feel if someone continously excluded you from doing something? It doesnt only happen at school- its happened throughout my life. I have always seemed to like boys who are either white or coloured and i have always tried to be extra extra nice to them so that they could like me but nope never. a white teenage boy would rather choose to date a mean, immoral white girl (im NOT saying white girls are mean etc, im just trying to paint you a picture) over me. I may not be perfect but i am a good person, i may not be the most beautiful or hottest girl around town but i am attractive but because of my skin colour, the boys dont bother with me. most mixed raced couples in the wetsern cape are usually with guys from england, germany or the USA. Really, i promise you, if a good looking white guy ever asks me for my number, that will be the day the mountains move and the rain turns green!

How ironic that that is your land (your ancestors) and now your the one who feels like the alien there...
Teaching kids to hate is a heinous crime...
You think you have it bad... just imagine what it was like a few decades ago.... it doesn't even bare thinking about...
It must be tough for you to be surrounded by narrow minded cretins...
Why don't you just leave?

the education is really good
