Teens and interracial dating
People who imply this, usually have serious issues with my next pitfall. In regular conversation, I’ve been known to freely state that “I hate stereotypes”. In addition, stereotypes exist in that they are important in regards to social learning and the assessment of others.
Well this is not untrue…but it also doesn’t tell the entire story. So what I really have an issue with is the improper application and use of stereotypes.
I should start off with an apology at the negative tone of this post’s title; but I believe that people should know the negatives upfront, get past them (if they want to) and then go on to pursue their dreams.
I love sharing my experiences and opinions with others (hence why I’m a blogger).
Unfortunately the “battle for love” is one that is fought among people of all persuasions.
They do not care about what other people think about them and they are not deterred if no one (or if only a few) around them are doing what they are doing. Many people could simply care less about what their parents or family think about their life choices. Thankfully, in my experience, most families are at least quietly tolerant of interracial relationships. On one hand, you have absolutely no control or influence over how strangers treat you.
They may not like it, but most parents aren’t disowning their children over it. You are in a relationship with a person…not a family. If you go out with your significant other, be prepared for at least one grossly ignorant comment shot your way at least once per month. However under no circumstances do I shrink away from my status. ” with a raised eyebrow, I don’t hesitate to answer in the affirmative.
Rather than focus on blogging about this fruitless subject, I began to think about why these are such hotbed topics to begin with.
Why is it, on the heels of 2012, are we so fascinated with racial distinctiveness, yet not interested at all in what unites us?
