There's something fishy about interracial dating. I wish I could pretend it's open-minded progression, but what I see from the streets and studies prove otherwise. There is a huge bias for certain groups, the same ones promoted by the media (see here).
Is this fiction portraying reality, or human
beings being easily influenced by outside sources? Which came first, the
chicken or the egg? Or perhaps certain ethnic groups are just naturally superior.
We are all encouraged to be with anyone we want. This is an admirable notion in itself, but somewhere along the way, many have lost sight of why. Why are they attracted to certain traits? It's too easy to brush this off as biological preferences, but statistics show numbers that shouldn't occur naturally.
Whatever is the root cause here, to the
unconventional couples out there, the ones never promoted on
TV, I hope their relationships withstand the whispers and stares. As for
the popular couples that are in true love, I hope they manage to
separate themselves from the fetishistic ones, although that is
not easy these days.
We may be in the 21st century, but judging people by their skin color is still trendy. Very trendy.
