Black com dating interracial man white woman
As I explained above, many can maintain prejudiced and even racist ideas while also having relationships with people of other races.
And contrary to popular belief, there are more southerners who marry outside of their race (13 percent) compared to northerners (11 percent).
For people of color who live in a White-dominated country, many of those experiences will be plagued by racism.
A significant other who dismisses or trivializes those realities could never provide adequate support for their non-White partner in relationship.
(“He’s not your typical Black guy.”) That, of course, is very problematic.
No relationship can be built on or sustained without acknowledgment, acceptance and respect: including the respect of the race and background of the person you are with. Your partner may be of another race, but your relationship does not exempt you from being racist or exploring White privilege.
