Do you really think inter racial couples are gross?
I’m in an interracial marriage and my child is mixed so not neccessarily. The thing that grosses me out is the amount of white partners that fetishize their partners of colour or are unaware of how racist the shit they do is.
This is something i struggle with a lot, determining appropriate boundaries in participation in my husbands culture and balancing the cultural embrace for my children and husbands benefit.
People (usually white people) in interracial relationships that use their partners culture as an accessory or think they are now somehow a representative of that culture are gross
People that use their partner of colour as an excuse for why theyre not racist are gross
The love in interracial relationships can be amazing! For my own relationship there is minimal integration of Canadian culture, and we do almost everything the same as they would in Burma, or an adaptation of some cultural practices to be able to work here in Canada.
I dont think interracial relationships are gross. But I personally will be extremely weary if my children want to marry other races, especially white people (even though my child iss so far whitepassing) because even if that one person is not racist, white people will always fuck up in one way or another, and this I know. And you also dont know if that persons family isracist either
Obviously issues of antiblackness and antinative especially in Canada and America exist in people of colour as well but its not my position to talk to about since I am white. However, these issues still in the end support white supremacy so im
still more concerned with white and people of colour interracial relationships.
I know very damn well from the amount of white girls chasing Karen guys that want to be friends with me because of I am also white how disgusting and dehumanizing they can be. And I will always use this to analyze my own actions because i recognize my privilege.
So no I dont think interracial relationships are gross! But some of the people in them definitely are.
