His Parents don’t like white girls

Rachel in Honolulu

I have encountered this many times dating other races. I have white (well really pinkish) skin. I’m attracted to all ‘races’. Many times when I have dated other races, I have been told that they are afraid to introduce me to their parents because their parents don’t approve of them dating white girls. “Why don’t you date black/filipino/your own race girls ?? ” They tell him. They seem personally offended. I haven’t met anyones parents yet from another race of a guy I’ve been dating. We haven’t gotten that far šŸ™ If my parents said anything negative about me dating other races, I would stop talking to them. I don’t understand why so many brown and black skinned people are so afraid to date outside their race and upset their friends and family. Why so much pressure to only date your same race ? We aren’t all evil (white people) !! I love other races, I’m attracted to men that look different than me. I wish more people were accepting of inter racial dating. Its stupid to tell people only to date within their own race. Its a big issue here in Hawaii too, its acceptable to talk bad about dating white people but if anyone said it the other way around, its a big deal. White people have feelings too šŸ™ And yes I’m aware of the long entrenched history of racism of white against other races and yes I know what the concept of white privilege means. Me being upset that others don’t accept my white skin does not mean I am ignorant of these things. Everyone is eager to call out when white people are acting racist but when other races do it, its like the elephant in the room. Everyone makes excuses for it or accuses the ones of calling it out as being insensitive and trying to change the subject. All racism is wrong. Lets end this b.s. !
