Interracial dating trends in america
As liberal as your partner and community are, there is much to be said about the decades of internalized racism that his/her parents might harvest.
In this article about meeting the parents when you are in an interracial relationship, David Schiller gives some good tips, like pretending that you like all the food and refraining from mentioning race at all. Even if you think your family is totally cool and not the least bit racist, it might still come as a surprise when you show up for dinner with a person from ___ race. Some of these questions might be well intentioned, but ignorant and painful nonetheless.
You might not have a bit of racism in you, and your reasons for dating the man/woman of your dreams has nothing to do with race at all. Be prepared for the stares, stupid comments, and maybe even violence (thankfully, this doesn’t occur often anymore in Western countries).
You two will have to do your best not to let the racism of other people interfere with your relationship.
Or, if you are the woman in the interracial relationship, the women in your boyfriend’s life will probably shun you.Successful minorities love to say, “You're privileged but I'm so smart and awesome and financially secure that I have the same, if not better, house, car, and woman as you.”Need evidence that some black men see dating a white woman as a sign of their success?Just listen to the lyrics of rap music from the likes of Kanye West, Chris Brown, We Dem Boyz, or Wiz Khalif.Once again, this is really sad as it just reinforces a society in which women are pitted against each other.This can also be a problem with men, such as you getting shunned by your girlfriend’s male friends.
