Today, Americans profess unprecedented levels of tolerance toward interracial couples when asked about them in surveys.
But a new study suggests that the responses to such surveys aren’t always entirely true.
For instance, I felt the need to defend my relationships to my mother who, like Baker’s mother, wondered when her daughter would bring home someone who looked more Michael B. My mother will resent me for saying this, but I know there is a part of her that wanted to see me settle down with someone black, someone who looked like me.
I couldn't stop repeating the first part of the Clutch headline over and over again in my head. She wrote in a Huffington Post blog late last year: It is the same sharp tug of disappointment that gets me every time I see a black man with a white woman on his arm.
What does it mean to be uncomfortable about interracial dating in 2014? Why are so many people advocating a "stay with your own race" mentality?
As a young woman of color, I can attest to the fact that many people in this world feel it is their duty — no, their God-given right — to decide what is best for me, and especially whom is best for me to date.
“There was a general tendency to implicitly dehumanize interracial couples relative to same-race couples,” the researchers wrote.
In a survey given at the start of the experiments, most of the students indicated they were accepting of interracial dating.
Yet, fewer than 10% of them (out of 152 college students surveyed, 87% of whom were white) said they had dated or lived with a person of another race themselves, and more than a third said they would not date, marry or have a child with person of another race even though they thought it was okay if someone else did it.
