Dating someone different race
After publishing this Expert Q&A, where a young, black reader asked for advice on ways to attract a white man, we took to Facebook and posed a similar question to our fans. Below, a snippet of the general views and opinions.
It seems race – particularly interracial pairings – is still an issue in our society.
They’re cute, funny, and sincere with similar interests and values. But for all the praise and comments my husband Vaughan and I have received throughout our relationship (he’s Black, and I’m a Korean American adoptee) about our future adorable biracial babies and how cool and progressive our relationship is, you would think we had achieved ultra-super-special dating status. Race is certainly a hot topic today, and it seems especially paramount to Millennials to prove how racist we are. I fully believe we are called to initiate, grow, and maintain healthy cross-cultural relationships, and that being part of the kingdom of God means experiencing more than just your little corner of it.
There are a lot of reasons for this fear, including prejudice and racism among your family members, ignorance about other cultures, or a fear of cultural incompatibility.
If you are worried about your family's reaction to the news that you are dating someone outside your race, you may want to initiate a conversation to let them know and to reassure them about any concerns they may have.
Dating interracially with misguided motives will inevitably lead to problems.
You’ve dated a long line of losers—deadbeats, cheaters, manipulators.
