I am currently dating an African American man, but what I want to know is why is there such a commotion about "akata". There are plenty of bad ones, but there are good ones. I don't know why it matters if I go out with one or marry one, because I am not a son in the family, so i do not know. Plus I mean, I was raised in America, of course I am going to have "american taste" and find interest in an African American. My dad said it's a taboo in my culture, but I don't want to dissapoint him with my "likings", but if that is where my love falls, what can I do? You know, so I just want to know you guys views on this.
