“Mother Concerned About Interracial Dating” : My 15 year old daughter wants to date a boy who is very nice and one she has known for several years, but he is Black (she is Caucasian).I didn’t mind when they were 10-12, but dating in high school feels wrong to me in this situation.
How can I not let this get out of hand without coming down too hard? One is that you are concerned that your daughter is willing to participate in relationships where she might get hurt because a boy has led her on before.
It’s such a kind thought, but it also often comes with an underlying “they’ll be gorgeous because they’ll be mixed” vibe.
And, yeah, mixed babies are adorable, but so are full-on babies of any race! I still take it as a compliment, but I know it rankles some people in interracial duos.
Moses' wife was of another race and in Numbers 12:1-15 Aaron and Miriam were punished for criticizing this interracial marriage.
The book of Ruth tells a delightful story of a foreigner who became part of the lineage of Christ.
