You ever fall in love with someone of another race? Or haven’t yet, but really want to? Are you a white guy looking for a black girl? Or a black girl looking for a white guy? Why? Because you have heard all the rumors about what other races can do for you? You ever heard that white guys are gentler and a lot more caring? Have you heard that light skins aren’t loyal and have too many hoes?
What defines a person race? It seems that our society define race by a person’s skin color. People don’t get treated certain ways because of their race, but because of their skin complexion. Race is usually categorized as black, white, or Asian. It is also define by social class education level. This factors are what society uses to judge you. The amount of money someone has defines their race. You ever called a black person white just because they have so much money or act a certain way? They don’t talk like “normal” black people. Doesn’t this effect your view on things?
Kumiko Nemoto’s article, “interracial romance,” explains how and why these interracial relationships occur. Also explains how these relationship cause for false impression because people start to think that racism and discrimination is lessening. That doesn’t seem to be the case. There seems to be a lot more cases still happening in society where blacks and whites are against each other. When events like Ferguson occurs, it causes society to compare black and white punishments. How many white people got off for doing greater crimes, while blacks are getting a greater punishment when they did something that isn’t viewed to be very bad?
In the article is tells us that Times Magazine the “new race of America” is the mixed race. Have you ever heard a white person say that they aren’t marrying someone of another race because they want to keep their race alive? More and more mixed kids are being born each day. This means that pure races are shrinking. Black and white couples seem to me the most observed. But why? One reason is because now, both races have more freedom amongst each other so it’s possible now. Black and white interracial relationships aren’t the only focus. White men are getting partners that are Asian. Asian women are viewed as hyper feminine and subservient.
Why are we more attacked to people of a different race in present day than years ago? Is racism not supposed to exist anymore?
I connected this to the “sex and power” article (NSS) because I think that this is a great example where sex is used to gain/have power over another race. Men who go after Asians because they are stereotyped to being very catering is an example. These men don’t want love. They just want power. You think this is fair? Will he be identified as weak? Having power is all that our society focuses on. We want to be higher than someone else. Having control over someone is what we want and long for. Wanting a white guy instead of a black guy because you think he will praise you is another great example.
I personally have a huge crush on Dirk Nowitzki. He is German and he is married to a black model/ actress.
I am mixed with black, white, and indian and I have a huge crush on a German man who just so happened to have long hair. I have always been attracted to guys of diffent races. I think this is because I am curious about how they treat their lady. This can be the reason why others are interested in other races, because they are tired of the guys of their same race. Ever heard of the “typical light skin”? What does that mean? Well many black chicks don’t want a “typical light skin” because they don’t feel like they must to offer. But when you have rich white girls who don’t need much but an image, it explains why our society is the way it is.
Do you agreee with these statements? Why are these interracial relationship looked down upon? How will these interracial relationship change the future?
