About this submission

Things You Only Know if You’re a Black Girl on Tinder takes place somewhere in suburbia where the grass is very green and the people are very white. Except, of course, for main character, Samara. Finally in college, she’s giving Tinder a try. However, even with Tinder’s radius set to 20 miles, the majority of her potential matches are white males. And the black ones, well, their bios usually say “no black girls” or, in the best case scenario, “lightskins only.” To Samara’s dismay, almost all of the white boys she’s matched with have a case of Jungle Fever.
