Say no to interracial dating
Attitudes toward interracial marriage are so progressive that some people prefer to exclusively date interracially. There are a number of reasons not to date interracially, including for social status, because it’s trendy or to remedy a rocky love life.
Dating interracially with misguided motives will inevitably lead to problems.
It was only in 1967 that laws banning interracial marriage were deemed unconstitutional.
Long after this ruling, interracial couples were still harassed and discriminated against.
More people are looking outside of stereotypes and bias and dating people outside of their own race.
Gone are the days when racism was so prevalent that such dating would result in violence.
The following are some things a person should know when entering into such a relationship.
Today’s world is full of people of different races. But this doesn't mean that every relationship is the same.
David Daniel, a member of the Randolph County Board of Education and an electrician, watched the inferno from a distance as the wails of the gathered alumni on the hillside swelled around him. Wrenching his tie from his neck, Daniel elbowed through the crowd and seized a crate from the last man in the human chain that was working furiously to salvage school records from the maw of the inferno. When the last filing cabinet had been heaved onto the back of the truck that would transport the records to the courthouse for storage, Daniel pulled himself onto the flatbed, and the old Ford lumbered toward town.After all, cultures are different: whether you’re talking about blacks and whites or Spanish and Asians.Anyone entering into an interracial dating situation should take the time to explore the other person’s culture.As the sweating men screamed directives at one another, Daniel grabbed another box of files. As he braced himself against the hot rush of air, it occurred to Daniel that he was a perfect target for a sniper's bullet. It was a story of hostility between blacks and whites that had erupted in the 1960s only to be muffled by the placid social fabric that wraps the rural South."I had a strong feeling that I could possibly be killed or shot," recalls Daniel, 39, who's also the pastor of Big Springs Baptist Church. That's a very odd feeling for a person from a small town in the country. '" It began in February 1994, when the principal of the school was accused of calling a student of racially mixed parentage a "mistake" and canceled the prom because of interracial dating. It was a story of humiliation small and large that were whispered from one generation of black students to the next, along with other family truths.
