What is the Color of Love?|Interracial Dating

So, if you know me, you know that I am a person who enjoys the company of any and everyone. I have friends of so many different cultures, races  and backgrounds.  I love that because each and every one of them brings something new to the table.

Now I want to get to the fact that I am seeing someone who’s white; I don’t have a problem that he’s not black one bit. Neither does my family or my close friends. It’s the people who don’t know me, that have a problem with who I’m seeing… it happens a lot. I would think that we are in an age and time, where people should be free to date and be around whoever the hell they want too.

I’ve notice that it’s mainly black men who have an issue with me dating someone who is not the same color as me.  I never get approached by black men, and when I do, it’s on some ‘damn girl let me holla at you, or you phat as sh$!,  type mess.’  I’m a grown woman, and if you don’t know how to approach me, then I will pay you no mind; I don’t care what race you are!  But I do notice that when I’m sitting beside someone that’s not black they want to try to be all up in my business.  I just don’t get it.  One guy even approached me, when my date went to the restroom. “What are you doing with him, you should be sitting here with me”… WTF does that suppose to mean.  I kindly told him, “I’m here with who I want to be here with, and I hope that you have a wonderful evening.”  I don’t believe that people actually have the balls to say things like that to people.

I want to know when today’s society will learn to accept that people can’t help who they fall in love with, or who they like, and want in a mate. If you’re dating someone of a different race  I would love to hear your story.  Or even if you know someone who is in the same situation, how do feel about it?

  1. Brava! I had to leave a comment because it truly spoke to me. I was raised to believe that love is colorless! If he/she respects and loves you who cares? I married a man outside of my race. I fell in love with him not the color of his skin and he loves me for me. For those who have a problem with it…I say I live my life for me not you. :-) Viva la différence!

    • Thanks so much Amanda. I just really wanted to get this off my chest. It’s something that I’ve wanted to get out for so long, and finally just had the courage to let it out… :-)

      Thanks for reading, and sharing…

    • Thank you for posting this.. I’m so happy that my mom raised me to just love people, no matter what color they are. It sad that I still know people who dont understand why I dont like dating my own race…

  3. Wait, your reply says that you don’t like dating your own race??? that does not strike me as the true colour of love unless I misinterpreted somehow. If he’s hot he’s hot regardless of skin colour–end of story. Things are looking up though in my opinion, there is much more interracial dating so that in a generation or two we should not have this problem at all. For example i now see teenagers dating whomever they like and it’s nice to see a Chinese guy dating a Black girl..I never saw this as a teen..so the tide is surely changing, just not as quickly as we would like!
