Dating patterns and teen problems
At the same time, it’s irresponsible to seek out partners you know your parents would disapprove of just to rebel against them.
The mates you seek out certainly won’t appreciate being used as fodder in the war with your parents.
Rather than dating across ethnic lines for validation, such people need to learn how to feel better about who they are.
Seeking therapy, reading up on their cultural background and surrounding themselves with positive images related to their ethnic group may help.
If they could erase every trait that singles them out as belonging to their minority group, they would.
Since that’s impossible, they settle for seemingly second best—coupling up with someone from a different race to make them feel better about themselves or to produce children without their telltale ethnic features.
Such people are not only ashamed of their culture but of the physical features they have that reflect that culture.
Interracial dating isn't without its problems, but today interracial relationships enjoy more support in the United States than they have at any point in history.
