Dating someone of a different race
subject to politically correct thought control in America. I believe this thread implies that only ONE way of thinking is OK. David Gracie, racists are people just like you and me. it is sad, and something you want to be careful of as you explore how people think even when they nicely say otherwise... Have you thought about encouraging Krystal to talk with her mom about it and maybe offer to be there with her if they'll allow you to be? and loud racists, and very nice little old lady racists (my gramma is one) You are getting a taste of how deeply ingrained, and subtle that racism is.But I took a bite and quickly learned interracial dating involved the same basic ingredients as any other relationship: a new learning curve, some compromise and, well, understanding of differences.The only consequences surfaced with my lack of emotional responsibility and naïveté about the whole ordeal.
Still, dating outside my race felt like playing hooky for the first time.
Not only was my upbringing littered with a constant reminder of our deeply convoluted roots (see: any Spike Lee Joint), but I also matriculated through predominantly white primary schools, survived “Southern Rites”-like neighborhoods (in both Georgia and Maryland) and bumped rap music in my CD player obsessively.
It made the thought of being black and dating someone not black intriguing, but extremely painful to digest.
She said " why would you date Ty when there are other cute white guys that you could date." Ofcourse Krystal is still gonna date Ty and everything no matter what her mom says but I was still a little confused by it. (I like tall guys and most of the guys I know are older because of school). Sorry but I don't wanna offend anybody and most of the stuff racists say about race are offensive. Well, I just dont want anyone to say anything offense. She said she doesn't care what her mom says or thinks. I know that Krys' mom isnt a mean lady and that she's always liked Ty. He told Neil that if an Englishman ever saved his life, he coud not like him, even then, but (according to my friend, Neil), he was very kind, polite, friendly and helpful to the people with whom he dealt. ) David I dont mean to make it seem like only one way of thinking is okay David, really. I like most people here, I think you're all smart and different and you know alot of stuff about alot of different things. You could say what you think without being hurtful or mean about it, or you could atleast try to, right? I hate them sometimes but then other times they're really nice and sweet. I thawt the Las Vegas Strip lit up at nite 'd be a good contrast for her.) The 3 of us also went to a gunnery range there and worked out with a lot of fully automatic weapons.
Like, I know her mom isn't racist because she likes Ty but It sounds like a racist thing to say don't you think? Presumably, he 'd not want his child to date an Englishman. It's just that I know how people are sometimes. I didn't want anyone to say mean hurtful things on this thread. That's why whenever I'm curious about something I come here.

Or maybe your partner has to go through almost a “coming out” process around dating someone white or outside of their culture.
