Interracial dating rates
But still, interracial romantic relationships present a whole new set of challenges.
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?
If this is the case, take the high road and be polite, kind and thoughtful. Sadly, the minority community will label those who date outside of their race as “sellouts”.
This makes no sense, but many people still hold on to this. From a personal perspective, I never saw interracial relationships as problematic…in spite of having grown up in a place and time where it was relatively rare (although this is, thankfully, no longer the case).
I love sharing my experiences and opinions with others (hence why I’m a blogger).
Dating interracially is one of the topics I have no issues talking about.
With a divorce rate of well over one-third, we all have a lot on our plate when it comes to maintaining a healthy relationship.So basically, people’s opinions about interracial dating became more enlightened, but their actual dating habits weren't.Ok Cupid’s founder, Christian Rudder, wrote in 2014 that dating preferences don’t necessarily make a person racist, but “the trend — that fact that race is a sexual factor for so many individuals, and in such a consistent way — says something about race’s role in our society.”And simply dating someone from another race or ethnicity doesn’t automatically mean a person has transcended all forms of subtle racism.Notopoulos writes about tech and internet culture is cohost of the Internet Explorer podcast. 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.
