I think it's time to have another discussion. This time I'd like to talk about intercultural and interracial marriages. Please remember to keep your comments respectful to others.
Do you think that in our society intercultural and interracial marriages are still looked down upon? Do you think that they have a tendency to face more persecution? Do you think it makes a difference what race or culture they are? What do you think about intercultural and interracial marriages?
For my part, I believe that there is certainly nothing wrong with marrying someone from a different race or culture. I believe that as with any marriage, communcation is essential because of the differences that the two may face in what they think and believe and how they react. I think that there is still a lot of prejudice towards mixed marriages, but I believe that it is mostly towards African American/White marriages. If you see an Asian person who has married a Hispanic person no one cares. I believe that in the case of African American/White marriages, that the couple is looked down upon from both directions. I have heard (although I have no first hand account) that other African Americans feel that Whites are stealing all their best men.
I dated (for a very short time) a man from Puerto Rico once. It was interesting because when I met him, I knew where he was from, but I didn't even think anything of it. However, in discussing back and forth the subject came up of teasing. Apparently some of his friends were actually ribbing him a little bit for dating a White person. It hadn't even crossed my mind before that that there might be prejudice in us dating.
