Interracial dating peoples opinions on it
I would love it if our children had his hair, or his eyes, not because they are “black features,” but because when I would look at their faces, I would see their father.I would like to see a Harvard that recognizes that, even though we have checked the legal box of interracial marriage, there is still much to be done.
The study made it clear that Black approval of such unions has always been higher, but the gap between the races has closed dramatically.
I did not choose for my face to be a source of irritation, discomfort, or pain for the peers in my classes.
I did not choose to date my boyfriend to be provocative or to make a statement.
(This comment itself makes people bristle as if it is impossible for a white woman to experience microaggressions in the first place.)Too many of my friends here—even after recent developments in racial discourse on campus like the “I, Too, Am Harvard” campaign—seem comfortable being vocally critical of my decision of whom to love.
I will never forget sitting in the Quincy dining hall with two of my (nonwhite) friends who spent about 10 minutes picking and choosing which features from my boyfriend and I would create the “perfect baby.” I remember sitting there, feeling extremely uncomfortable, because although the comments of “Your eyes, your hair” and “his lips” were meant as compliments, I was hurting.
