This is a great post I found on another issue that interracial couples have to deal with – TOLERANCE

Interracial Relations have been a bit more visible and in the news lately and I have blogged about them before… Given I am so angry with our society in general for bigotry and racism and homophobia to name a few, and many other social ills I am still pleased that there has been considerable positive movement in being tolerant of differences in people in the United States… but make no mistake we have a long way to go and grow in this area.
Having not dated let alone anything… else with a woman who was not racially different from myself for 2 decades plus I find the trend to acceptance a good start, but ONLY a start….. and there are many many challenges in a relationship between 2 adults anyway, the racial and cultural issues further complicate this. add family to the mix and their biases and prejudices …. well there is a long long way to go in this society.
Hopefully the explosion in multi-racial children will help bring that about as long as they are raised with love and are taught that they are not so much the product of racial blending but are unique and special individuals born of love from 2 people who were bigger than the racial barriers that society has put up and that they need to be recognized for who they are as a person and not because they do not belong to a specific racial or cultural group.
