Hello my name is Ailanna Ledé and welcome to my blog Life of Ailanna. The topic that I’m going to be talking about is interracial dating. I would like to say thank you for taking the time to read this post and thank you for supporting me on my endeavors. Be sure to share this post with anyone if you would like to. If not, then that’s fine too. In the meantime, enjoy the latest post and have a great rest of your day.
The type of discrimination that goes into this topic is from either guys or girls that you know asking you, why are you dating this person that is outside your race? After they would tell you that either way of dating outside your race or not. Or how and why they would do it. To be honest, it is none of their business.
The type of stereotypes that goes into this topic is people saying that or giving people the idea that you basically have to only date people in your ethnic group. It shouldn’t be like that at all. Whomever you like or love is your business so don’t feel like you have explain your choices to anyone.
I praise the people that have to deal with these types of negativity in their day-to-day lives because of whom they’re dating or married to. They post their responses on social media, talk about what’s it like to go through these types of things and how it impacts their lives.
Love is not caring about what other people think or say about your dating choices and still treating that person like a human being at the end of day. You have a right to like who you like and love whomever you want to love.
I’ve had a lot of people ask me why don’t I date men that are in my race and why do I date only men outside of my race. I tend to answer sometimes and other times I just don’t. Some people think that it is such a bad thing to date someone that isn’t in that person’s ethnic group. I’ve looked at the people who asked me those type of questions about my dating life and say something after differently. I was always told that if you don’t have something nice about something then don’t bother saying saying it at all.
It was a hard thing for me to talk about and explain to people because the conversation made me feel uncomfortable and curious to why people asked me about that question. These type of conversations make me uncomfortable, make me want to disengage and do not make me want participate in those type of conversation(s).
In my opinion, all that matters is that the person is happy with the person that would like to be with or is with and that person is not being abused in any type of way. Love is love at the end of day and we need more nice and positive things in this world nowadays.
If you see someone interracially dating someone, don’t say something ignorant to them. Say something nice or don’t say anything at all if you don’t nice to say.
