I started dating a black woman. I'm a white male. Things were going well, then we got into an argument.?

We were watching TV and my glasses broke and I was upset about that. But then it escalated and has become horrible where she just acts like I'm a terrible person because we watched the TV shows that I wanted to watch. She divorced and has grown children.

But then it escalated and has become horrible where she just acts like I'm a terrible person because we watched the TV shows that I wanted to watch. She divorced and has grown children. I'm taking care of my mother who is 99 years old. My girlfriend and I do not live together. We both do similar kinds of work - in the healthcare industry. Maybe she's really kind of 'bossy' and I'm not the kind of person that will be pushed around. I have 25 years of management experience in the corporate world and in the healthcare field. Is there any chance of our relationship getting back on track. In an email I suggested that she pick the next movie we watch and she just launched into a lot of nastiness toward me. I am also an artist, a painter and she knows nothing about art. With her there are a lot of topics that she doesn't want to talk about. Any suggestions as to how to get things back on track? She's turned into a perpetually angry woman.
Update: I've decided to end things with her. She just became too nasty. Even on things we agreed on, she wanted to order me to do them. She is very bossy. I decided she's not worth the trouble. She doesn't value education except as a ticket to make more money, but not to be able to discuss issues intelligently.... show more I've decided to end things with her. She just became too nasty.

She doesn't value education except as a ticket to make more money, but not to be able to discuss issues intelligently. She never watches the news, feels it does directly impact her life. There were just too many differences between us. Thanks for all the good suggestions. I think everyone made good points.
