They had 7 children and only 2 of those 7 married other South Asians.
The rest, including my grandmother, married and had children with Black Jamaican men.
I should start off with an apology at the negative tone of this post’s title; but I believe that people should know the negatives upfront, get past them (if they want to) and then go on to pursue their dreams.I love sharing my experiences and opinions with others (hence why I’m a blogger).People who imply this, usually have serious issues with my next pitfall. In regular conversation, I’ve been known to freely state that “I hate stereotypes”. In addition, stereotypes exist in that they are important in regards to social learning and the assessment of others.Well this is not untrue…but it also doesn’t tell the entire story. So what I really have an issue with is the improper application and use of stereotypes.If you are in an interracial relationship, you cannot discount the power of stereotypes.
Even if you yourself do not put a lot of weight on them, others around you do.Now an interracial couple that includes an Asian woman has a fight on their hands no matter what in this regard; because if the woman is not the submissive and obedient type, then they have to decide how much effort (if any) they are going to put into combating this stereotype.If the woman is in fact submissive and obedient by nature, then they are going to have to fight for the legitimacy of their relationship in that it means more to them than just a man trying to get a woman who will obey him.Dating interracially is one of the topics I have no issues talking about.However, in the past 24 hours, I was censored from another blog that focused on interracial realtionships — specifically Black women who date interracially — because of my comments regarding White and Black men and the disparity in their penis size (which is ultimately a non-issue: read on, and you’ll see why).People who make such statements have some sort of issue with other people being happy, even though it is masked as “wisdom” and advice.
