That’s the most hurtful and ridiculous kind of comment I’ve heard.
According to this report in the April 2014 issue of EBONY, today’s youth just might put me out of a job, and I couldn’t be happier. Magrid Associates, Inc., today’s teens are more likely to interact with a diverse circle of friends, and according to the Pew Research Center, 15 percent of new marriages in 2010 were interracial, compared to 6.7 percent in 1980.
I have received a few rude comments in the past and so has my husband, but it’s not a regular occurrence or anything.
Once someone asked my husband if he was sure he wanted to have kids with me, because our kids wouldn’t look like him.
"I'm of Indian/South Asian ethnicity, born in the US, and I dated a black guy for three years in college.
However, at that time, I lived in a different area that was extremely diverse and interracial relationships were so common that no one really blinked at us.
