One of the things that have always fascinated me since I was a kid was interracial love. I always thought that it was one of the coolest things to engage in. I mean it’s not cool to seek it out for the color factor alone. Yet if it came your way, why not go with the flow? There are some out there who would never cross the ‘color’ line. “Racial’ pride…Memories of slavery….You name it. Yet there are others who would do it just because they found the person likable. Back in Washington DC and many cities in the northeast, you see a lot of ‘mixed couples’. When you think of the word mixed, one automatically thinks of black-white hookups; But there are so many other kinds of hookups, it’s interesting; Black-Asian, Asian-Euro, Native American-Black, Latino-Asian, Black-Latino, etc. It’s like opening a bag of multi-colored candies. The combos can be amazing. Most interracial couples (And what is up with that term? Inter means between…..How can humans be between their own species? The term interracial would apply only if a human got involved with a being from another planet…..A member of another ‘race) will be the first to tell you that they ignored their lover’s skin color.

I don’t want you to compare it to someone being ‘color blind’. There is no way you can miss the color of anyone’s skin unless you were truly blind. The key word here is ignored. They saw the skin color differences, but choose to ignore them. That’s kind of a wonderful thing to say when you think about it. I saw the skin color….but chose to ignore it. They will also tell you that once they saw past that superficial barrier, they were able to see the person within. Something about that person did it for them. Maybe it was their niceness, their personality, their smiles, their humor or their goofiness. (Hey, don’t knock that last part. Goofy doesn’t mean stupid….Just goofy! (lol) ).They saw really nice qualities that went past the skin color.

Summer is when they appear to come out in droves. Many of them make such nice couples because of those different physical differences. One of the most attractive interracial couples I ever saw was on the train one warm summer’s day in the nation’s capital. It was a white man and a black woman. The man was a classically handsome blue-eyed blond and the woman was beautiful, dark ebony with pretty black eyes. The differences between them made them even more attractive. It was looking at humanity at its best; just two human beings enjoying each others’ company. I never forgot how beautiful a couple they made. How happy they seem.

I mean if God made us in so many different colors and shades, he had to have a Master Plan. Or maybe he liked seeing his creations in different colors. Kind of boring if everyone had the same color skin.(lol). I don’t think that ‘interracial’ love is problem-free, you know? Like most couples who are drawn towards each other, you’re going to have problems. That comes with the territory. And with the added stupidity of ‘race’ and color added in….Still there is a certain beauty is such couples. It proves that you can’t build a barrier high enough to separate people. They’re going to find a way to get together. I have heard plenty of people who said they would never date outside their culture let alone outside their race. Whites top the list for obvious reasons (lol). Yet they would avoid Asians, Native Americans, and Latinos (Which still mystifies me seeing as how many Mexicans, Dominicans, Cubans, and Puerto Ricans look just like us. No one said anything about such attitudes making any kind of sense).That’s their right.

But what is annoying is when they get on those soap boxes slamming those that do. It’s not your thing? Not your cup of tea? Cool, just don’t badmouth those that do. I have dated outside my race before and truthfully, I enjoyed them. My longest relationship was with someone of a different color and ethnic background.  You never know, I may still end up with one of them given how much bad luck I have had with the ladies (Twisted Fate).

And for those of you who think that it’s totally different to date a white person, it isn’t. The same is pretty much the same except this time she enjoys giving head, and she enjoys getting slapped during intercourse, and getting her hair pulled. Lol. But besides that, the activities remain the same. We spent the time going to the museums, the zoos, movies, outdoor sports, the parks, and the tourist attractions. We also checked out the nighttime concerts in the park, nightclubs, pubs, bars, etc. I have nothing bad to say about those women because they each contributed something to my growth.

I am not trying to tell you to go out there and try it, but if one comes your way and you’re free and available…Why not? Forget about all the bulls**t reasons for not doing it. Everyone should have at least one interracial encounter in their lives. If they did, then racism would die a whole lot sooner.

    I can honestly say I have dated outside my race and it was without drama. He knew what he wanted and I did also the only reason it ended was because I moved back to miami.(Sorry I don’t do long distance relationships period)But he was the sweetest person in the world and i do hope he finds a good women because they would be so lucky. So I agree that sometimes you have to see past the invisible line called “color”. Because in the end we are all are looking for the same thing ” LOVE”.

      I guess you couldn’t sacrifice for love huh? If it was so “perfect” why did you decide to end the relationship and not have him either move with you or you stay with him over there for the betterment of the relationship?

    It’s funny to me when people stress that they do or don’t date outside their race. You should just date whoever you connect with. When a guys asks me that question, I always have one answer “I don’t discriminate”. Finding someone you communicate freely and have great chemistry with is hard enough without stopping to think of their skin color. If the look in their eyes, their smile or conversation pulls me in then Black, White, Asian, Latino… who cares?

    honestly, he didn’t want to move and I wasn’t going to give any demands…they relationship was fairly new 6 months and in the end we both knew that it was going to work out ..but we enjoyed each other and the time that we spent together …We are still good friends and talk often.

    Wow this one really hit home….. Throughout both high school & college I was always attracted to the nerdy white guys. I always partnered up wit them during group assignments & even hung Out wit them outside of class. But could never bring myself to date one. My friends & family would always that I would end up wit a white guy, I of course was in denial. Up until recently….. I have to say that no man has ever gone out of his way to ensure my happiness like my white guy…. In Monica’s voice “I come 2nd to none,when it comes to him :-)

    I always imagined what it would be like to be with a white man. I have always been attracted to them but never pursued anything. I would not mind being with a white man,its the underlying issues outside the relationship that has always got me. Afraid, what would people say, the enhanced forms of racism on both sides(white and black). What issues would we have concerning race( culture and traditions are important to me). but if the chance ever comes up, I would definitely not mind getting some milk in my coffee. Thanks for this post, it was wonderful.

    To me my blood don’t even let me try it. I always think maybe it’s just the color,sometimes I think I’m old fashion, sometimes I think I’m racist, I know it’s wrong however I cannot stop it. I have different kind of color of friends but I can date only black with at least 50% Haitian culture in them(loll) it’s just my blood that can’t go along with it. Beside I went out with a puerto rican once and that guy was 2 nice and believe me I was fighting it but I could not let go so I gave up the same week.For some people like, it just that your blood don’t that race even though you try. Nice topic Blake! :)

    lol, interesting how black males are so opened to dating outside their race but white males are not that easily accepting, their numbers are fewer. Most thing black females are too fat and their hair feels like brillo pads…hmmmm interesting!
