Im in an interracial relationship and I've overheard and directly received so much negativity and hatefulness- It makes no sense to me. Why should it matter what color you are if you love someone? That's just my opinion though.
Because some people are narrow minded and think one race is different from another.
Thank you :)
on this site,called a black ****........may be its because of the avatar.
Well...white mother, black father...even in San Francisco, in the early 60s there were places we couldn't go as a family; it wasn't legally forbidden, but it was more trouble than worth. My parents are both originally from Louisiana, met in college in New York, where they married, because they legally couldn't in Louisiana. They moved to California a couple of years later, where I was born, and later, my siblings. When we'd go down South to visit the relatives, there were places we legally could not go as a family, and places my father and I couldn't go at all.
I'm in an interracial marriage, and white men stare my husband down, and Asian women stare me down. I've also been told that my marriage is idiotic and pointless and not worth it. And that I have "yellow fever" and it's a "fad" and I must wish I was Asian. I try not to make eye contact with people in public, but it's hard not to notice. And some men actually try to start fights and talk smack under their breath to my husband when we are at bars or whatever.
Also back in school, I used to be harassed by Latino girls who made fun of me relentlessly--calling me "pastey" "lesbo" "Hitler's daughter" "white trash", among other things. It's funny how ONLY Latino girls did this to me, even though my schools were very diverse. I still wonder what made them (about 6 different girls between 5th-12th grade) hate me so much. I don't remember ever starting anything with any of them. They were always calling me out, and getting in my face, trying to fight me. And I would only calmly defend myself or ignore them.
I wish I knew what word you were saying when I only see these *********. Darn you EP censors! I am all all for interracial families-- someday no one's race will matter because we are all mutts. And the sooner the better, I think.
wow, people are pretty insane and hateful. I never heard that before, but I am in a pretty diverse area, to start with, so I am a little ignorant to how bad it is in other places. And I don't think there is much worse in the world than p-philes-- that takes the cake along with people who torture and rape... which is what active p-philes basically do.
On that other note-- At least in my experience, for every 1 bad looking biracial person, I see maybe 3 good looking ones. It's like evolution agrees that they are the next step.
I work at an excavation company - there is a staggering amount of thinly veiled racism still prevalent in the New England blue collar community, though people tend to keep it to themselves unless provoked.
Being a blond-haired, blue-eyed heterosexual white male, people with this mental affliction tend to assume I am likely to agree with their prejudices. Its an odd place to be in when your boss asks you how you feel about the n***** in the white house with a conspiratorial grin.
Naturally it is possible for white people to be the target of racism. However, I've never personally experienced that and doubt that its prevalent here in the northeastern united states. @Fish - Maori? You've got some far-reaching code in your genes.
what is fish-maori ?
Numerous time in my working life I was discriminated against in favor of "minorities" who got hired, promoted, and paid more because of anti-white racist policies of government and industry. Over 40 years the anti-white racism probably cost me more than a million dollars. And its gotten worse. The Odumbo regime is the most racist government in my lifetime.
I was called a honky in school once, i hit the kid and we later got on.
In college I was called white trash which upset me.
As a Christian my faith and my God are often mocked which annoys me.
A lot of people don't really like my kind of lizard so they usually try to grab me by my tail to make me drop it.
you should let me move in
yeah those dirty cane toads need to remember their place
