Dear MADiary #1

Dear MADiary,

Scene: 125th St subway, 3 train downtown platform. A melanin-enriched and fortified woman with a beautiful smile walks past me, accompanied by her bald dark-skinned, presumably friend.

Him: So you like light-skinned guys better than dark-skinned guys?

Her: No! I like DARK-SKINNED guys.

Me (not minding my business): Excuse me, Miss. Would I be considered light-skinned or dark-skinned?

Her: (She smiles, beautifully.)

Me: Please tell me, I really need to know.

Her: (Pauses for a second to think) Not dark enough.
