Is constant hate the price of dating interracially?


Is constant hate the price of dating interracially?

I started dating a guy who is mixed black (but obviously looks black) and I'm a Latina that looks mixed and a lot of times when we go out not even holding hands or doing any sort of PDA I get the DIRTIEST looks from middle aged black women. Even black men give me weird looks sometimes too. Is this normal? This is the first time I've ever dated interracially.

Updates:
@anon Your unecessary comment about whether or not I'm as pretty as the latina depicted. What does that have to do with my question? Lol and also, excuse for what? I'm not trying to prove anything at all. Step off, anon. 😂

  • You might be getting SOME looks, but you might be imagining a lot of it.

    Still... whatever. Whatever. Who cares.

    I am most mixed pony. I am 1/4 of four different things. No matter what, I am dating "interracially". Don't give any fraction of a shit.

    Here's my suggestion:
    I suggest that you are paying too much attention to random middle-aged black women, and not enough attention to YOUR MAN. Girl.
    Solution:
    (step 1) move eyes away from middle-aged black women.
    (step 2) move eyes toward man.
    (step 3) give man some lovin'.

    lather, rinse, repeat.

    let the haters hate.

    • oh, also, if you are getting dirty looks, it's probably because you're hot as hell.

      because... mixed latina.

      we're pretty hot.

  • It's normal. Every interracial relationship I've had was met with glares from black ladies. Some even have the nerve to try to step to you when you're with your girl. Post-racial society my ass. . .

  • I seriously doubt anyone cares who you date. I've seen every combination you can think of and i never once cared. People should date whoever the hell they want. Its no one elses business who you date. Good luck with your relationship.

  • They're jealous. Remember that humans are technically animals. We have instincts and we prefer our own groups. Obviously they find your date interesting, and look at you as a threat to their group.

  • Maybe it has nothing to do with your colors people give me dirty looks all the time... I'm not gonna assume its because my color. If I made assumptions like that people would give me dirty looks more often..

  • That's never happened to me. Maybe I just don't give a fuck though... They aren't the ones my focus is set on. My husband has brought up men staring at us, but again, I've never noticed. There was once when we crossed path with another interracial couple (black guy/white girl) and me and the other black guy tipped heads at each other with smiles of acceptance. Lol

  • Ignore them. Some people accept interracial dating and others don't. If you're happy don't worry about what anyone else thinks. Good for you for being open minded enough to date interracially.

  • Everyone will look at you funny. That's the way society is there is no way to avoid it other than to be oblivious to it. The choice is yours you can only change yourself

  • You still have people that are stuck in the stone age. You might not get it everywhere you go. But if your into him then don't let it bother you. Those are just some people that are small minded.

    • I doubt you look as pretty as that latina

    • Show All
    • That's a random stock photo I pulled up because it's relevant to the question. So salty. 😂😂😂

    • Salty about what? Sounds like a childish excuse

  • I don't recall encountering this when I dated an Asian guy, Latino, or black man. Then again, we didn't really pay attention to what others did or said. We liked each other and so did our friends and family, so that's all we cared about. Maybe it's the area you live in?
