If there is only one thing you take from this article, I want it to be this: being in an interracial relationship is the same as being in one with someone of your own race.
As a romantic, I feel that everything will work out.We both come from different cultures, but I believe it makes our relationship stronger and balanced. He has taught me how to salsa and much of the Mexican culture as I have taught him mine.The school I attend, The University of Texas at Dallas, is very diverse but has a small Hispanic and African-American population.The only affiliation my boyfriend and I had in common, and how we met, was through Greek life.That being said, there are things that I do slightly worry about the future. What other traditions and holidays would I learn by messing up?
These are some of all the different things I wonder, but, luckily, I have a man kind enough and patient enough to help and teach me along the way.
There are historically black organization and historically Hispanic one, too.
I am sure they are friendly to each other, but outside of Greek life I do not notice many Hispanics and blacks with relationships as close.
They make it sound like I am dating him just for a mixed kid.
I never understood this, because I cannot even think about procreating with someone I did not love.
As a mother, I know that whatever my kids look like, I will think they are the cutest kids on the planet.
