Don't knock it before you try it!
Have you ever noticed how the people who oppose interracial relationship or interracial marriages have never actually been in one themselves? We have all heard the familiar “you must hate yourself and your race” comments because we have chosen to date interracially. The majority of people who make these comments have no clue what they are talking about. Have those who criticize interracial relationships ever tested the waters, to understand fully, what it takes to be in an interracial relationship? Have they ever experienced the need to find a deeper connection than the initial attraction to physical appearance? Being in an interracial relationship is not a piece of cake, they must believe that it is easy to have family, friends and strangers alike oppose our relationships. They have never experienced being in an interracial relationship themselves; therefore, they do not realize there is a deeper connection than what is on the surface. Maybe it is difficult for them to believe that our outer skin doesn’t give sight to what lies within each of us. So to all those who want to speculate why we choose to date interracially I say this “don’t knock it before you try it”.
