Blog on interracial dating
It’s 2018, and we’re happy to say interracial relationships are far more accepted than they once were.But let’s be honest: Members of mixed-race pairings are definitely still vulnerable to ignorant, invasive and often infuriating comments and questions.It’s upsetting to tell my significant other the microaggressions said to me; people assume who he is before even meeting him,” said Sanchez, a Filipina-Mexican woman whose boyfriend was born and raised in India.“He’s mentioned that he’s faced comments along the same lines, such as ‘I heard Latinas are crazy.’ I wish people knew that our relationship is not defined by where we are born or how we are raised individually.“I wish people would understand that we are in a VERY loving and healthy relationship.I have been in toxic relationships before and ours is nothing but love, growth, and mutual respect.People should understand that it’s about what we learn from each other through our experiences.
