We're Going to Need More Wine: Stories That Are Funny, Complicated, and True By: Gabrielle Union

Let me start by saying, I never imagined knowing so much about her vagina and her period.  I have always thought she was absolutely gorgeous.  Sadly I was put off a bit with her obsession with race and shades of colors.  I have dated and been involved with women color of snow and the color of a plum and every shade in-between.  I literally had to sit back and think back to see if there was any in particular I refused to date. I always say that Hispanics are one of the most racist group of people but among each other.  Cubans (my heritage), Puerto Ricans and Dominicans are viewed as the bottom of the barrel from a "latino" culture.  By far Spain and Spaniards feel that they are superior.  I never knew this existed in the Black community.  

Although the book started funny, it does have its dark sides.  Her rape, the racial tension with her step-children and the death of her friend.  I enjoyed the book.  I could not put it down.  She was certainly promiscuous but good for her.  She owns it and I can respect that.  She is a beautiful woman and I think she was her worst enemy and critic.  Funny how she considers herself "dark skinned".  I don't see it, nor do I care.  I think she is stunning all the time.
