In 2012, 15.1 percent of new marriages were interracial.To many, interracial relationships are now almost a non-issue; just love whomever you want to love.Incredibly, anti-miscegenation laws remained on the books until the latter half of the 20th century, making interracial relationships taboo and posing barriers to mixed-race couples.A major reason interracial relationships continue to carry stigma is their association with violence. Within the relationship there may be disagreements about who's values/beliefs are more important Direct comments: "You should be with your own kind," "You are a sellout," "You are disgracing your race/culture" and possibly other insulting comments. One partner may feel uncomfortable telling their family and friends about the relationship. Legal Disclaimer This Website is for general information purposes.
Being asked by family or friends not to bring your partner over.
Don’t write off every friend or family member who raises an eyebrow in your direction; instead, anticipate objections and be prepared to respond graciously, articulately and without defensiveness.
Some old-school families will consider interracial dating a form of cultural betrayal.
To date outside of your race is no longer the controversial decision it once was.
