You might not have a bit of racism in you, and your reasons for dating the man/woman of your dreams has nothing to do with race at all. Be prepared for the stares, stupid comments, and maybe even violence (thankfully, this doesn’t occur often anymore in Western countries).You two will have to do your best not to let the racism of other people interfere with your relationship.They just got tired of the stares and comments so decided to go on dates elsewhere.Or, if you are the woman in the interracial relationship, the women in your boyfriend’s life will probably shun you.We stick to our “tribes” and people feel rejected or jealous when they see someone from “their tribe” dating someone who looks different.Meeting your partner’s family is when you two are of a different race.The typical advice about interracial dating says to “just ignore it.” In reality, it won’t be so easy.
However, if you can embrace these differences, then your romance can flourish. Fetish assumes that you are turned on by certain characteristics or things, such as people with a fetish for pantyhose or scat or whatever. It is a bit difficult to define the difference between a fetish and attraction.
Of course, this isn’t always the case – but you should be prepared for it. When the white protagonist in the movie starts a relationship with a black guy, the guy’s female friend responds with:“White girls like you, creeping up, taking our men — the whole world ain't enough, you've got to conquer ours too.”Sarah James talks about this in her article for the Huffington Post.
She puts the comment in the context by pointing out that Other stats show that 42% of black women are unmarried – which leads you to understand why black women might feel like a white woman is “creeping up” on their men.
Successful minorities love to say, “You're privileged but I'm so smart and awesome and financially secure that I have the same, if not better, house, car, and woman as you.”Need evidence that some black men see dating a white woman as a sign of their success?
Just listen to the lyrics of rap music from the likes of Kanye West, Chris Brown, We Dem Boyz, or Wiz Khalif.
