By now, we know that a physical connection is just as important to Rachel as an emotional one (hi, Bryan). She asks Will what kind of women he’s attracted to, and he responds, “I’ve typically only dated white girls.” So in response to question about his type, his answer is basically: white.

Rachel follows up with an inquiry about the kind of boyfriend Will is.

I responded saying, “What are you talking about man?

” “It’s because you’re black bro; girls like her only date white guys.” Until that point I had not looked at dating through a racial lens.

I’ve never heard him raise his voice, but I have heard him tell many racist jokes— jokes which I very vocally disapprove of and have asked him numerous times to stop telling.

I know that out of respect, my dad would never say anything degrading or offensive directly to someone of another race, but it’s a different story when he’s sitting in his living room.

For a growing number of people, that’s definitely the case.
