Don't forget to bring a dictionary. Exitement=Excitement?
I agree with scurvey about the environment thing. There was like one black family in my town, so if any of their kids wanted to date, they had no choice but to go outside their race. I think they turned out fine
I bet they didn't turn out as fine as you think. At least some of them have major identity issues, I promise. I grew up similarly, and I wish every day that I hadn't. We learned to cope, of course, but it really messes with your head to always be different and to be surrounded by people who don't like like you.
whoa they walked up to u and asked ...unacceptable
I thought interracial dating was common until a few weeks ago when I moved to Houston. We're the only mixed race couple in the entire subdivision. And I've been asked no less than 50 times whether or not my husband is black when I'm doing something simple like shopping at the grocery store. I can't believe people just come out and ask me when they see a ring on my finger. As if it's any of their business. Anyway, this is all to say that your perspective on interracial dating is largely influenced by the region in which you were raised.
Well, I guess the part of town I'm in is so small and I definitely don't fit in appearance-wise that they all know I'm from out-of-town. So they ask what I'm doing here. I say law school. They ask if I'm working. I say no. They say, oh, is your husband black? Somebody even had the nerve to ask me how I felt having so many black people around. WTF is that?
