Basketball Wives’ star Evelyn Lozado wrote an interesting article to Globalgrind about interracial dating.
“I recently had a discussion with a friend and the topic of interracial dating came up – and I had to share my thoughts.
As an educated Latina – who is literally colorblind when it comes to dating or friends – I have a huge issue with this topic! It’s 2010 – and I can’t believe that the issue of interracial couples is so prevalent today – as it once was back in the 50’s – before we were born.
It’s such a shame that race still comes up. I think it’s important that when seeking a partner – the deciding factor should be whom you are attracted to, who loves you, and who respects you, and your family.
My future husband will be a man of God who loves me, his family, and puts his family and our family first. I wish everyone felt this way – however we still live in a society where it’s discussed, frowned upon, and often judged.
Coming from NYC – the issue of dating across the board, is less of an issue in my experience, given that it’s the melting pot of the world.”
