In case the imagery didn’t immediately click in, the term describes two men of color experiencing one anglo woman.
This is obviously upsetting…Two men of color in such close proximity–very un-Oreo! Not an Oreo experience at all.
It also brings up a philosophical conundrum in the mind of male Oreos. Regular black guys love white women. So a male Oreo really should date a lady of color to as not to seem to be an RBP. But lady Oreos like myself really can’t date men of color or we become RBP.
What’s an Oreo to do when it comes to dates?
My suggestion for the gentlemen is not to jeopardize the hard work of ladies like myself and therefore, to make sure that your chosen light-skinned date is especially so. Brunettes will do, but a redhead would be great. Bonus points for a
Scandinavian–especially if you can work a few words of Norwegian or Flemish into the conversation.
Or to be gay. Your average RBP and the Friends of Dorothy don’t tend to commune. Except, of course, when they’re getting their hair did.
