So I've been see in this guy and on our first date it was sooooo awkward. I wanted to have a regular date and treated him the same as any other person. But he kept trying to talk about politics, he was talking about how he has black friends and how do I feel about the whole Michael brown and Eric garner situation. And I kept trying to change the topic. Then i was telling him how im multiracial and he kept on going about politics and the cases on how he was on garners side. After it ended he called me apologizing about it. He said that it was his first time dating interracially and he didn't really know what to say. This was my first time to but I wanted to get to know him and it was as if he was trying to prove to me that he wasn't racist or has nothing against minorities. Should I go on a second date with him? Maybe he was just nervous?

The fact that on impulse he can't see past race and politics shows he might not be very good long term fit for you. He needs someone who will nod her head on the receiving end and view minorities as "the other", just as he does. That date would have ended much differently than yours did.
Nerves do play a part in screwing up badly. But they also tend to reveal where the mind is at. He could be nervous about you or nervous about the ideas that surround you, superficially. I think it's the latter, and that's not a good thing.0
