Once you go Black?

30 January 2013, 09:01
For those who don't know me, my name is Semonatenate Monate. Since I know most of you better now, I regard you as my cyber family and thought it is time to extend our relationship by telling you a bit about my life. I hope you will also tell the family about yours, just to strengthen our family, you know what I'm talking about, knowing each other better.

I was married but now single..that means I'm now divorced, for about 15 years now. I was married to a white lady, not because of the depth of my pocket as some may assume, my looks? I still have six pack up to now. You know coming from North pole and the other from the South pole and you meet each other in the equator, my goodness it is something very hot, mind blowing.

What I mean is , me and my x-wife we had no experience of whatsoever about each other in terms of upbringing. She had her own pre-conceived ideas about blacks and I had my own about whites too and the two combination, I can't explain it you need to be in it to experience it. In bed wow! Third World War, lightnings, to heaven and back as I said I have no enough words to explain it.

The biggest problem was when we are at my in-laws, I was interrogated like I have just tried to cross Kruger National Park illegally, she also was aware of the treatment her family was portraying to me/us. But when we are at my families she was treated like a queen, in fact she preferred her in-laws visit more than her family visits. We kept on and we were blessed with a handsome boy, Sean Semonate he is called, then things turned sour from there on.

Her mother would call our home and puke insults for no apparent reasons, she was bitter, she never sent a single blessing to her daughter let alone her grand son. As a result we grew apart, I also did not want to spoil the relationship she had with her family and we decided to part. She is married now, bless her, the good thing is my son is keeping my second name even though he is staying with them.

I am pleased with both input he is getting from me and his step dad, he is a nice guy to be conscientious. But in all those years we've divorced, we see each other secretly, she often calls me for humpty dumpty and I also do if I feel like. The question I am having for those who have been in a mixed race relationships, do you have difficulties to let go off your bedroom life? Or is it because once you go Black?.......

Why I love Cambodia’s capital

There are so many reasons to hate Cambodia’s bite sized capital of Phnom Penh. Open sewers, naked children, piles of burning garbage on every street. Its a dirty, smelly, noisy amalgam. But Phnom Penh grows on you and by the time you leave it will occupy a special place in your heart. Read more...
