I decided to write about this topic because it plays a big role in society today. Believe it or not, some people are still against interracial relationships which are surprising to most but not all people. I’m actually in an interracial relationship myself. When I would go out with my boyfriend to certain places we get weird stares. I don’t know if it’s because they are shocked to see an African-American woman with a Hispanic man. Or maybe they dislike seeing us together.
There are times when it’s uncomfortable because unwanted attention is on us. In my opinion, I don’t care if someone dates another person outside of their race. You can’t help who you love plus all that matters is if the person treats you with respect and loves you unconditionally. I think it’s beautiful to see couples happy without being judgmental about who they choose to be with.
It is more common to see interracial couples in big cities like New York, Miami, and Atlanta plus more but y’all get my point. Then you get into a state like mine which is South Carolina. You don’t see too many interracial couples and if you do it’s a Caucasian woman with a black man or vice versa. Then you will see a Hispanic man with a Caucasian woman. I had Caucasian friends in the past that were told by their parents that they could have black friends. When it came to dating a black person then that will be a problem. That would be so crazy to me. I do not see a difference between dating a black person or being friends with them. I’m not trying to throw racism in here so I don’t need anyone to get offended.
In conclusion, I support interracial dating because it shows how others have courage dating someone outside their race to get a new experience or love they haven’t gotten from anyone else. By me saying this I’m not trying to say I’m against anyone that dates within their race. That is totally fine. I just don’t want anyone to get any misunderstanding. So I want to know what’s y’all opinion on interracial dating by commenting down below.
