This is a huge problem and you need to be aware of it before you enter into an interracial dating relationship with a white woman, especially if you are black.You might not have a bit of racism in you, and your reasons for dating the man/woman of your dreams has nothing to do with race at all. Be prepared for the stares, stupid comments, and maybe even violence (thankfully, this doesn’t occur often anymore in Western countries).You two will have to do your best not to let the racism of other people interfere with your relationship.The typical advice about interracial dating says to “just ignore it.” In reality, it won’t be so easy.
“There is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him” (Romans ).
However, if you can embrace these differences, then your romance can flourish. Fetish assumes that you are turned on by certain characteristics or things, such as people with a fetish for pantyhose or scat or whatever. It is a bit difficult to define the difference between a fetish and attraction.
You might even learn something too by stepping outside your cultural norms. We can’t help it if we have a preference for one type of look, such as one guy being attracted to skinny women with blond hair whereas another prefers curvy women with darker tones.
For example, one interracial couple in Houston said they stopped going to country music concerts together.
They just got tired of the stares and comments so decided to go on dates elsewhere.A colorblind church and/or a Christian interracial marriage can be a powerful illustration of our equality in Christ.
