Interracial dating to live
It shouldn’t surprise me that interracial relationships are here to stay, considering that I’m in one. When I started dating “Kevin,” I was concerned about the demographics of the relationship. I don’t hear about how those couples confront the elephant in the room and fight to keep it from trampling everything. How Black people are killed by police for sleeping in their cars. He listens and learns and he calls out my hypocrisy — not to silence me, but to remind me of who I want to see in the mirror.
I worried about how it would play out with our families and friends, the rest of the world. Instead, I hear odes to colorblind love and admiration for the white people who dared the ostracization of their white families and friends — something you don’t hear about the Black partner because it’s presumed that dating a white person is a come-up, not a downgrade. And I hold a mirror so he can see himself and ask if he’s being the person he wants to be.
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.
Before all of you start yelling about how I’m wrong, just take a deep breath, have a calming sip of tea and acknowledge that nowadays, in our millennial generation, we are actively open and accepting to diversity in a way that our forefathers would have gagged at.
The very fact that you would even argue against me about the extent of our progress is evidence enough that we are concerned with acknowledging the inherent humanity and rights of all people.
It’s fantastic, and we should be proud of ourselves for that!
