People of different races have been falling in love for centuries, but it has only been in the last 30 years that interracial relationships have become acceptable in American society—not to mention by local police. This book addresses the problems facing interracial couples from a black perspective. From interracial dating to marriage and child rearing, it talks frankly about racism and discrimination, deals with the disapproval of relatives, discusses the challenges of blending cultures and traditions at home, and celebrates the richness that an interracial relationship offers. Based on interviews with hundreds of biracial couples, this invaluable, savvy handbook will help black Americans navigate the challenges of having a white partner.
