Thoughts on interracial dating
They didn’t marry interracially because they truly loved their spouse, outsiders say, but because they wanted to get back at their parents.Are there white people who bring home a person of another race because they know it will drive their parents crazy? But it’s unlikely that these people would have a sustained relationship with someone of a different race just to spite their parents, let alone marry interracially to do so.They have dated both intra-racially and interracially and just happened to end up with partners who don’t share their ethnic background.They don’t have a pattern of choosing solely white mates or solely Asian mates or Hispanic ones.Of course, a number of such couples exist in real life as well.Famous examples of interracial couples of color include musician Carlos Santana and his wife, Cindy Blackman, an African American; and Wesley Snipes and his wife, Nakyung Park, a Korean American.
While minorities in interracial relationships are often accused of hating themselves, whites in such relationships are often accused of rebelling.Given this and the fact people of all races are more likely to romance those who share their economic and education background, it’s inaccurate to suggest that minorities in interracial relationships marry or date down. When slavery of blacks became institutionalized in the U.S., however, anti-miscegenation laws surfaced in various states that barred such unions, thereby stigmatizing them.Miscegenation is defined by sexual relations between people from different racial groups.
