Interracial Marriages

How do you Feel about Interracial Couples & Why?

How do you Feel about Interracial Couples & Why?

 

It is roughly 50 years since the US Supreme Court legalized interracial marriages. Before then, interracial marriages were illegal in the US and Americans had a low approval of such couples.

However, since the 1967 landmark ruling, the approval rate of interracial couples has significantly increased to about 87% to date. Despite such a high approval rate, I feel that interracial couples have more problems to grumble with even after Supreme Court rendered the ban on interracial marriages illegal.

The following are my views as to why I feel interracial marriages is only legal by the law but still full of challenges in the real life.

1) Random acts of cruelty against Interracial Couples

Despite that interracial marriages are legal in America, there have been random acts of cruelty directed towards such couples.

For instance, in April 2016, a family was forcefully evicted by a landlord in Mississippi on the basis of being an interracial couple. Another cruel incident was witnessed in the same year where an interracial couple was stabbed by a white man for kissing in public.

Such kind of incidences cannot simply be wished away. These acts explain an implicit bias that interracial couples have to contend with as it is difficult to capture it via public polls.

2) Offensive Assumptions made by others

For no apparent reasons, some people describe an interracial marriage as one driven by insatiable sexual desire.

For example, white females have been accused of being fetish when they date black partners. White men view blacks as sexual beasts and whenever a white lady is married by them, then such a lady is often perceived as-as having insatiable sex desire which could lower her dignity and self-esteem.

Throughout the 20th century, the majority of Americans expressed some reservations for the interracial couples. A case on record is when Abigail Adams- a white female expressed that she was horrified and disgusted at the sight of a dark man touching a white female in a theater production.

Though outright offensive reactions have considerably lessened in recent years, modern commentators on interracial couples still express some level of disgust when referring to them. It is often difficult to get the perception of people towards interracial couples since most of them are either uncomfortable discussing issues to do with gender and race or simply unwilling to express their biases.

According to a certain American psychological study, most of the white Americans express little or no bias on interracial couples but they often possess strong non-conscious or implicit biases.

3) Interference with the partners’ social life and self-esteem

The racial background significantly contributes to the growth and development of an individual. Interracial marriages require the partner to learn numerous issues including new music, new languages, and new histories and so forth.

Interracial partners are compelled to have a broader perspective of things than their intra-racial counterparts. Such a scenario may make a partner not to enjoy life to the fullest as he or she may be constantly worrying what the other partner expects.

Interracial marriages may make some relatives and friends uncomfortable to the extent that one might feel lonely.

Though interracial marriages are legal in the US, the startling challenges some of them go through is an illustration of how deep social attitudes are rooted in the human race and it might take a little longer to completely eliminate racism.
