Introduction
This story by Junot Diaz’s seems to highlight and play into the racial stereotypes that impact the
manner in which Americans view one another. Nonetheless, the author is without a doubt
working to prove that even individuals who think they comprehend the scope of stereotypes,
particularly males, find themselves lesser to those they are stereotyping. The author demonstrates
how female stereotypes indeed control the activities of men who are looking for intimacy. This
presents a detailed analysis of the story by Junot Dia, “How to Date a Browngirl, Whitegirl,
or Halfie.”
Open Questions

Is the speaker a sexist and a racist?

How to Date a Brown Girl (Black Girl, White Girl, or Halfie) Analysis
This story by Junot Diaz’s seems to highlight and play into the racial stereotypes that impact the
manner in which Americans view one another. Nonetheless, the author is without a doubt
working to prove that even individuals who think they comprehend the scope of stereotypes,
particularly males, find themselves lesser to those they are stereotyping. The author demonstrates
how female stereotypes indeed control the activities of men who are looking for intimacy.
Addressing the question of objectivity and subjectivity in this story is like discussing a case
where appearances are influenced to the degree that objectivity becomes impossibility (Weber
108). This presents a detailed analysis of the story by Junot Diaz, “How to Date a Browngirl,
Whitegirl, or Halfie.”
Writer and Dramatist: As mentioned above, this story is written by Junot Diaz. Diaz is
very amusing and straightforward. He writes short fiction stories for the New York Times. Diaz
is one of the top writers in the world. He wrote this story to offer a life lesson to the people in
America. Junot has also written other stories that are almost similar to this. He writes to reflect
his experiences as a child. Since he migrated to Dominican, he always felt like he did not belong
to the people he met in Dominican (Diaz 308). This is because his family was different from
other families and they were poor. In essence, this has been the biggest motivation in his life. He

writes the story in a type of instruction manual type using embellished stereotypes and
stereotypes. He uses irony and satire to deliver the story meaning which is that people cannot
depend on stereotypes to classify other people. The title of the story is ironic. The title is how to
date, but the story itself is teaching the opposite of this.
Poet: This story is written in the second person perspective. The narrator or poet of this
story directly addresses the reader as if he is speaking to “you.” The narrator in this story is a
metropolitan Hispanic teenager. Nonetheless, just like many successful stories written in the
second person perspective, the “you” is general. In this case, “you,” is used to refer to the young
man who is living in America (Diaz, 309). In reality, this story is a façade that illustrates that if
an individual’s desires a real link between any sexes, they cannot achieve this through
manipulation and tricks. By describing his surrounding neighborhoods and the apartment, the
narrator creates meaning and mood for this story. The poet makes, the reader experience the
embarrassment he feels as he is preparing the condo.
Genre and period: The story is a fictional short story. Besides, the story is also
subversive. The narrator portrays his character in a manner that it is not concerned with any
specific race. The primary concern of the character’s needs is to achieve what he desires from the
girl. Mainly, the writer rebuts racism to a limited extent. He demonstrates that it does not matter
the girl's complexion. This story is written in the present times, the author says “Shower, comb,
dress and Sit on the couch and watch TV” (Diaz, 306)
What does the title of the short story suggest? As mentioned above the title of this story is
ironic. The title indicates that the story is all about teaching how to date but the story itself shows
otherwise. Is the speaker a sexist and a racist? Inevitably, to a particular extent, the story portrays

the narrator as sexist. His stereotyping about the girls shows that he is a sexist. Nonetheless, the
narrator is not a racist (Parrillo N.p). The only thing he does is highlight the distinctiveness
among girls. He is more of a stereotypist than a racist. This is because the narrator is asserting
certain things concerning special girls. The story demonstrates stereotypes of popular girls.
These stereotypes are explained based on social class and ethnicity. They impact me...
