So, it is possible that we date the same people? An interracial date is one in which the two parties dating are not of the same national heritage. Maybe a Latino man and a white woman choose to date, a Chinese lady and a black gentleman. These combinations of interracial date situations have led to the marriage and subsequent births of some of the most stunningly beautiful people in the world.
Mariah Carey, the musical superstar born to a French mother and a black father, has been heard to say that she values her double heritage. Being of two descents of people broadens ones cultural base. Learning the interracial date etiquette is important for the two parties dating, and in some instances, even more important for those who do not experience interracial date situations.
Staring was a problem experienced by many who chose to date someone of a different race. This made everyone involved feel differently. The one who felt “discriminated” against (like they shouldn’t be with that particular person) would become angry. The man who was dating the woman people thought he shouldn’t, would feel angry and the person who was doing the staring at the couple who they thought shouldn’t be together could also become angry.
As if any of us get to choose for someone else who their life partners, dates, or even friends should be, we have preconceived notions about what is right and wrong. Where do the interracial date situations become wrong in our minds? What happens in life that causes us to think certain ways about things? Experiences. Plain and simple. If someone lives in an area where the population is primarily Caucasian, a trip to New York would be a culture shock! Italians, Mexicans, immigrants of all kinds walking the streets just like they belong there!!! If you, however live in New York and visit a small Mid-western town, you would be in awe at the lack of diversity in the people, their customs and their foods. You wouldn’t be able to walk down the street and choose from four different types of fare. You would only be able to choose from four different types of burger joints. While that is fine for some, it would prove extremely dull to others.
Exposure is another factor. Interracial personal ads are flooding the newspapers as people seem to be bored doing “the same old thing” to try to accomplish something different. If every guy you’ve ever dating is the same, boring, sports fanatically, ego-centric person, regardless of what his mother named him, you might take a walk on a different side. It’s amazing the differences in people when, deep down inside, we’re all the same; all looking for the same things, all wanting the same experiences; to love and be loved.
