Cause of interracial dating
I should start off with an apology at the negative tone of this post’s title; but I believe that people should know the negatives upfront, get past them (if they want to) and then go on to pursue their dreams.
Here are ten of them…and this list is far from being exhaustive. When you enter into an interracial relationship, you have the strength, courage, tenacity, and patience to deal with the issues that being in an interracial relationship poses? If you family is accepting, can you deal with the disdain from the public? Do you have it in you to be an “educator” or a “token” of diversity?
In all honesty, some people deal with this splendidly. But you have to know what type of person you are; you have to know what your social limitations are, before you can consider dating interracially. Without a doubt, the impact of family on your relationship has a lot to do with the emotional independence of the couple.
Rather than focus on blogging about this fruitless subject, I began to think about why these are such hotbed topics to begin with.
Why is it, on the heels of 2012, are we so fascinated with racial distinctiveness, yet not interested at all in what unites us?
Dating interracially is one of the topics I have no issues talking about.
