Why hello, there.
I just finished reading J.C. Davies’ book, I Got The Fever. If you’ve ever wanted to know, but were too shy/PC to ask, Davies exposes what it’s really like to date someone of the following cultures: Latino, Asian, Black, Indian, & Jewish.
Having dabbled in online dating and not really seeing race as a barrier, I knew that I had to read it! I was curious to see if my experiences matched up (or not) to what was written in b&w.
Aside from curiosity, another reason developed for reading the book: I wanted to know if it was going to tell me anything that I didn’t know about the above ethnicities. The answer? There were 2 new things that I learned, I counted.
I grew up in Mississauga, in a neighbourhood that was primarily Italian/Portuguese. At my all-girls Catholic high, Caucasians seemed like the minorities. And not meeting any Jewish, as I was educated in Catholic schools up ’til high school, I made up for that by going to York U…where even Gentiles had the High Holidays off!
So getting back to the topic of interracial dating, is “who’s coming to dinner” even an issue here in Canada?
Currently, I Got The Fever is only available through amazon.ca.
