It seems that everywhere I go, whether it is Xanga, YouTube or on the streets, interracial dating has become this big discussion. Some are for it, some are against it, some might be in it for all the wrong reasons. Want to know my stance on it? If it weren't for interracial relationships, I would be one lonely, lonely man.
As a man whose love life consisted of women that were and were not of my race, I'm here to say that there is absolutely nothing wrong with dating outside of your race. After all, I'm not a commodity. I'm a man with needs!Growing up, it always seemed like I was not able to identify or connect with the girls of my race
. Not only that, but the girls that I asked out never really took to me or my personality. I'm a black boy who likes cartoons, rock and electronic music, soccer, and comedy. I was the kid who spoke to a black girl and was told back that I was better suited for a white girl
. I was the kid who seemed to have more white friends than black ones. Interracial dating, to me, was no big deal because it meant that you had a greater chance of taking somebody to the movies on a Saturday night.
To me, trying to denounce interracial dating is no different than the idea of voting to segregate schools. When I go out with a white, Spanish, black, Asian, etc. girl, I see and hear one of many different characters of women. I see someone who could be my match. I see someone who could be my good friend. I see them as being the same as a black girl deep inside. With this in mind, I found it shameful that the majority of black people I knew either agreed or have a habit of limiting themselves.
I watched a vlog where a white girl was looked at funny by a couple of black girls, and the black women said the reason they did so is because white women were taking all the good black men, as if we were hot commodities
. In a much different video, there was a man who commented saying he left a black girl hanging because she said his chivalry made him seem made for a white girl. Even worse, there were plenty of people from my race that were either against dating or condemning the act.
So, if there is any reason why interracial dating should be encouraged, it's to make it a cure for social ignorance and incompetence
because that's what's keeping us from being able to understand each other as boys, girls, men and women.
That's why I say that anyone who thinks that dating outside of your race is wrong, they can all shove it down their pieholes. I was raised to believe that people are people. We are all different because we were born different or raised differently. There is a somebody for everybody, and limiting yourself by race, religion or something like that just limits your chance of finding somebody you really like. Don't knock it till you try it.Have you ever been in an interracial relationship? Have other opposed it?
