My name is Simone. I am 22 years old from Zimbabwe. I was fortunate to be born into a middle-class family in Zimbabwe. In Zimbabwe, I went to a private English school where my classmates were mostly white Zimbabweans. I’ve lived in Winnipeg for only a year.
DATING LIFE AND PREFERENCE
When it comes to dating, as a heterosexual single young adult woman seeking potential intimate encounters and relations, my preferences has been “white men," Euro-Canadian men and other non-African men. I prefer white guys because in the past I have dated African men who expect their women to perform stereotypical gender roles whereas white men and men from cultures other than African cultures I’ve dated do not adhere to such patriarchal norms.
Although Euro-Canadian men are just as prone to patriarchal norms as black men, in my assessment of race and masculinity, Euro-Canadian men and other non-African men are the most desirable sexual and romantic partners for me. In Winnipeg on my leisure time, I tend to go to lots of different clubs in the city and around downtown of Winnipeg whose patrons are mostly white, because I am interested in meeting white men.
MIDDLE CLASS PRIVILEGES
My mother lives a comfortable life in Zimbabwe and her status there allows me to do pretty much what I want in Winnipeg. She supports me
