Something to Be Proud Of - Interracial Dating

By: Keith Driscoll

Interracial dating is getting a lot of popularity and is not something that is frowned upon by society as a whole, and is not taboo in today's society, as witnessed by the countless interracial dating service websites. While interracial dating is becoming more and more mainstream, there are still some folk who refuse to accept these relationships and those who may try to physically or emotionally hurt the couple.

Yet anyone who dares to question almost any form of interracial dating is immediately challenged, criticized and dismissed by the "PC police. In today's world, interracial dating is more often seen than before, but that doesn't mean that a grandmother or grandpa is going to accept of such a liaison, they are from the old school and believe in dating your own kind!!


Blacks (37%) are twice as likely as whites (17%) to have an immediate family member in an interracial marriage, while Hispanics (27%) fall in the center of those 2 groups. Black men in this country have always been fascinated by white ladies, at times almost engrossed, because of the forbidden-fruit principle.

Among younger people there is even wider acceptance of interracial dating: 94% of those born since 1977 say it is all right for blacks and whites to date. While it is tempting to assign our view of interracial dating to the joining of a black person and a white person, it is noteworthy to recognize that this practice includes countless other cultures and colour lines. In Britain, 40 per cent of black men are married to or living with a white woman, versus only 21 per cent of black girls married to or living with a white man in the United States.


Asian includes so various distinctive groups that it comes close to being meaningless. Asians who live abroad are perhaps more liberal than their counterparts who still live in their country of birth. Ie, Asian women commonly date outside their race, as do black men, while it is rare that Asian men and black women date outside their race.
East Asians are seen as the most feminine, allowing for more dating choices for girls and fewer for men. In fact, I met a Chinese-American woman who once claimed that all non-Asians interested in East-Asian girls must have a fetish of various sort!!


Relationships should be based on mutual affection and love, not race. Interracial relationships have become more common over the past 10 years or so, but men and women still have comments to make when they see you out. At this point in human evolution and enlightenment, we should be long past prejudicial attitudes and antiquated ideas about interracial relationships. Opposition by family and friends can cause a terror of abandonment that is suffered by at least one member of the bi-racial relationship. If you are involved in an interracial relationship, you may feel pressure from both your own community and the community of your significant other. Many and various men and women respond to this pressure by trying to hide the union.


Today, nearly all African Americans (97%) believe that interracial dating is fine. It is my belief that interracial dating is a good thing. Online interracial dating is a comprehensive place to interact with other singles or couples that are also interested in pursuing an interracial relationship, romance or just wanting to love a person of a different ethnicity.
