What is interracial dating
Disappointingly, prejudice has evolved along with our mindsets and has adapted to become subtle and internalized.
What’s shocking to me is how sneaky racial discrimination is when it comes to encountering a couple in an interracial relationship. Though you might never say one hateful word, your mind will endlessly wonder what their freaking babies will look like.
There is a lot to be learned and gained from having deep cross-cultural relationships.
One second you’re looking at young lovers holding hands, and then suddenly the deep dark part of your brain whispers, “I wonder if their kids are going to be white or black? Interracial relationships and marriages may be on the rise, but we still see them differently.
Additionally, the person who’s actually in an interracial relationship is going to have a different set of experiences than a white, heterosexual cis couple, and that’s solely based on the fact that the entire universe can’t seem to get over it.
And if you are intentionally seeking out an IRR, you could be contributing to racism by using your significant other as an object to exploit for your own purposes.
How ironic that the thing we do to show the world we aren’t racist actually ends up perpetuating racism.
