Interracial dating effects colombian dating girl
LAST week’s column piece was written on problems interracial children face and I was so surprised by the amount of good feedback it received, that I decided to write on the reason why we actually have interracial children to begin with; interracial couples. Compared to the times of our grandparents, I wouldn’t say we’re better but at least we are more informed and a bit more accepting when it comes to these relationships.
Whether or not these couples are legally married is not the point, it’s the issue of society, how we perceive these relationships as ‘taboo’.
Interracial couples produce beautiful girls and handsome boys.
Much can be said about these kinds of relationships, it depends on the society and individuals in the relationships.” For some things, size does matter.
As the relationship progressed I asked questions like “So are there any mixed persons in the family? The young lady said, “There is a first time for everything and rules were meant to be broken.” In my alone time, I would relive this moment and try to comprehend her response.
The daunting question and I’m pretty sure you are thinking about it too was: what is the rule about dating or having mixed children?
In 2013, 12 percent of all new marriages were interracial, the Pew Research Center reported.
According to a 2015 Pew report on intermarriage, 37 percent of Americans agreed that having more people marrying different races was a good thing for society, up from 24 percent only four years earlier; 9 percent thought it was a bad thing.
Love has no colour, racism is not born; it is taught. We must realise that strength lies in our differences, not similarities.Everyone is different but when it comes to race and culture, it is the baggage of ancestral and ritual practices, thoughts and emotions.It is important for these couples to research and educate themselves on the culture/race of one’s partner.She was a proud Indo-Guyanese, brilliant, wealthy and an only child to her parents, quite compatible since the same can be said for me.The relationship blossomed and we soon fell in love, desperately trying to spend every moment with each other.
All the signs that the relationship would become problematic were there but I chose to ignore them, clinging to the hope that things would be different; that we can effect some change and show individuals of her family and others that interracial relationships are filled with love and excitement as with any other relationship.
