I wouldn't want to cause trouble with some relatives so I tend to date within my kind. I admit though, I find Rihanna attractive.
However, my younger 19 year-old brother has been dating his girlfriend for 5 months. I'm concerned that it's gonna cause some friction in the family. We're keeping it a secret but they're gonna find out at some point. This isn't the first time he has gone after a dark skinned girl.

I believe its not a problem, but other people might make it seem like it is. My dad is racist as unfortunate as that is I clearly don't care if he has a problem with who I'm with because at the end of the day I have to be the one happy with whom ever I chose. I actually love dating out of my race and not because it makes my dad mad but because most times they have a different culture they teach me about.2

I've dated outside of my race. Some of my family was uncomfortable at first, but all of them seem to have come around to it.
It still doesn't seem very accepted by the black community for a black woman to date a white man though, at least from my own experiences and from other stories that I've read on the Internet.1
