One of my best friends has a sister she was involved with a black guy. She was gorgeous and I actually fancied her myself for a while till I realised we were poles apart in personality, she was a knockout though. One night she snuck home early from work to surprise her guy with an outing, as she worked shifts, and she heard her guy referring to her as his "whitegirl-stunner" to his mate over the phone. Obviously she was very hurt at this and even though she didn't break up with him immediately it obviously had been catapulted out into the open the fact that they were different races, was an issue in some shape.
Maybe that is laughable, and it is certainly not indicative of ALL mixed race romances or the people in them I know that. However, the thing that makes me think it was a bad idea was her family were not very enthusiastic about her dating a black guy, which is sort of understandable, but she tried to prove them wrong in their concerns and she succeeded. So in a way her relationship was a personal victory.
That is one reason why I am wary of them. But that could have happened to any relationship really, it was just the fact that he brought the different race matter into it that made me feel wary like I do of mixed romances.
I don't oppose to being friends with people of other races in the least, certainly not, in fact I think its beneficial. Another good friend of mine, his family was from India, and since being friends with him, I can't get enough of Indian food!! When I visit him, I buy him his favourite cigars and he feeds me Indian food! Its win win!
I know all relationships are different, and I wouldn't deliberately try to sabotage a mixed race romance because of the peoples feelings involved. I wouldn't try to sabotage any relationship. But, when it comes to mixed races, I am wary because of what I saw my friend and his sister go through when her relationship ended like it did.
