Interracial dating between black man and white woman
Sometimes, interracial couples may not even “look” like interracial couples — some multiracial people can read as “racially ambiguous,” or be mistaken for a certain race or ethnicity that they don’t identify with.All these kinds of pairings come with a wholly different context and meaning, as do interracial couplings between people who aren’t heterosexual or cis. These kinds of questions only perpetuate racial stereotypes (regardless of whether they’re “positive” or not) and turn the idea of interracial dating into a kind of experiment or phase.No, black men and women who date or marry white partners (especially after being with black people in the past) are not necessarily doing so for status or validation.There are a lot of reasons why people are attracted to other people.These are the images we see most in the media — cis white men with black women, or cis black men with white women.But we should bear in mind that there are kinds of couplings in the interracial dating world that aren’t acknowledged nearly as much, and that interracial can mean a black woman with an Asian man.
