London england interracial dating
I know I’m a little sensitive on this issue, as I am half Korean married to a white guy.
I think everyone *thinks* they’re ok with it, but if that were true, people wouldn’t be so surprised that my husband is white instead of Asian. If I go 5 miles into Garden Grove, (a largely Korean city), I’m white.” I’m not sure what question I’d put to your other readers, maybe “Is the US (or US film industry) *really* ok with mixed race couples? S., for that matter — but that is absolutely reflected on British TV: interracial familes are far more prominent, and treated far more casually, than on American TV.
For example, some cultures may seem more ‘aggressive’ than others. After all, racism is still alive and well in our supposedly post-racial times.
Which is pretty silly, considering the fact that if I were to actually go to Korea, they’d think I was white. Actually, now that I think about it, there seem to be more gay couples on TV than mixed race. But I sure would like your ideas on the subject, since you used to live here, and now you’re in the UK. (That generally extends to film, too.) I’m sure there are many and complicated reasons for the differences — racism in the U. does not have the posionous legacy of slavery and the institutional dehumanization that went along with that, for one — but it’s still worth talking about here.
First thing I’d note right off that is that I’ve seen far more mixed-race couples with their mixed-race children in London than I ever saw in New York. So: Why does British TV (and film) seem so much more comfortable depicting interracial couples than American TV?
They are more obsessed about their interracial love than learning the truth.
Not to mention, their obsession with having mixed children.
