My computer blew up this weekend and I'm typing this on my phone, so I'm gonna be keeping this real short and sweet.
Have you ever wondered why white people date other white people? What deeply rooted pathological neuroses might lead a white person into the arms of another white person? Have you ever felt the need to classify and exam a white person's desire for another white person based on cultural analysis?
No? Then could please shut the fuck up about interracial couples?
The level of goddamned tired I am of this new internet fucking 'journalistic' trend of explaining why race + gender is attracted to other race + other gender cannot even be conveyed using these things we call words. Just fuck off.
If you want to explain and explore yourself and your partner, by all means go right ahead. But I do not need your help, thank you very much. And the chances of you trying to explain an entire group's motivation for dating an entire other group (especially a group you do not even belong to) and not coming off like a complete prick are less than zero. So stop trying.
Interracial relationships are not pathological just because you decided same race relationships are the default. If you want to delve into cultural influences or media representations, by all means please do so. But try to stop short of explaining a phenomenon. Because all the caveats in the world will not stop you from inevitably throwing one group or another under the bus in the process.
