This story articulated some deep feelings we all have had. You are right that we saw so many examples of white romance and saw less of this style of intimacy with Black couples.
When I was younger and my friends read Zane, I never did. Like you, I really thought that this seemed a bit vulgar. After all, I was only 12/13 when my friends started reading this. Still, this article makes me open to reading one of these books to see how I feel about it as an adult.
White supremacy creeps in even the most intimate parts of our lives. I think honoring Black love is powerful too. Our sex does reclaim and heal. I am so happy I read this.🖤❤️
