A "romantic" relationship where the two people are of different races.
Someone pointed out to me the other day that I am in a interracial relationship
again. I was never aware of that in the first place. I guess then all my relationships have been. I was first kind of shocked that something like that may be one of the first things people think of when they see my boyfriend and I
Later on I talked to a friend about it. He asked if there was a reason I only dated white guys. I never thought about it before. I guess the fact that I am asian, I lived in a pretty homoginized
world until I moved away to college when I was 16. My parents are white (I was adopted as a baby), and grew up in a far from ethically diverse town. So my ideas about what I found attractive were based partly on that. I like tall, pale lanky unix.boys
/artsy guys. Sometimes I waivered to the suit and tie corperate types.
I don't think that there is anything wrong with interracial relationships, except using it as a label. For some reason when I think of this term, I get a overly politically correct
aura from it. It gives the same vibe affirmative action
does, to me at least.
