It is surprising that people can react so negatively to an interracial couple these days. Science has all but proven to the world that people originated as one race. The majority of religions back up this theory as well; as the Lord was said to have created one man and one woman. Keeping that in mind, the Lord obviously did not create one African, one Asian, one Causations and so forth. Add to that the fact that not one Caucasian is indeed truly 100% American. The only people that are true Americans are the Native Americans. All other races that are living in the United States are people who’s families once lived overseas; thus making them foreigners and of a different nationality. Whether it is Italian, Polish, Australian or other, Caucasians are actually a wide variety of different nationalities.
A lot of the people, who disapprove of interracial dating, do so because they feel that a person should only date, have relations with and marry someone of the same ethnic background in order to preserve the ethnic race. Parents of interracial couples seem to have the most influence and strong feelings about such matters. The older generation, is most likely going by what they were taught by their parents. It is for that reason that current generations learn that color does not matter.
America, as is most other countries, a huge melting pot of many nationalities. If all people of the past generation had only married those with identical ethnic backgrounds; half of the people in the world would not longer exist. Their parents would have never gotten together. Each day, the world becomes closer together. Each day more and more people travel to live in countries other than the one they were born in. AS this continues, it is only natural that races will mix. It appears that it is a natural process of life. If one keeps this theory in mind, one day in the future, as all races mix; the human population may actually go back to what is thought of as its original state. Whether a person believes in science or religion, if the races continue to mix, eventually people will all be one; just as God or science created the human race.
An interracial couple who feels they are right for each other should never allow anyone to sway their feelings and thoughts about the relationship. If they have the most essential key elements, such as love, trust, understanding, respect, mutual support and companionship, nothing should get in the way of that. It is amazing that one can even think of talking of color, when love is such a difficult and wonderful ting to obtain.
