Consider the following examples - do you see your relationship in any of these?
Nobody Believes You're A Couple For interracial couples, public displays of affection (PDA) is almost a requirement.
You may think "To heck with what everyone else thinks.
I'm going to do my own thing." However, the hits you will take from those who don't understand can be too much to bear for some couples.
You will more than likely endure hate, criticism, and unintended racism like never before, and it is important to be aware of this before going into a relationship,so you aren't blindsided later on.
And when these couples do engage in PDA, they may be subject to racist backlash like ignorant strangers yelling epithets at them or engaging in violent behavior.People may mean well when they try to stop a man who looks nothing like his biological daughter from picking her up at the park and bringing her over to the family van, but ultimately this is both insulting and heartbreaking for both the father and his child. This can be both upsetting and infuriating for all involved, and it has the potential to steal a child's innocence even earlier than it might otherwise have vanished.Parents may have to endure questions like "Am I your daughter? The child may think: if a stranger is reacting so negatively to Dad picking me up, then there must be a problem. It's true that anything worth having is worth fighting for, and the same goes for interracial relationships.Signed, Race Relations " Dear Race Relations, Like interreligious couples, there is no question that interracial couples face special challenges that same race couples and families do not face.And some challenges are more difficult to overcome than others.
