If you hate people in your own race and have a bias toward dating them, then you have a serious problem. There is nothing wrong dating inter racially but there is something wrong with having unhealthy bias about people of your own race.
There is a problem that needs mental adjustment if you do not find beauty in people of your own race.
There is a problem that needs mental adjustment if you fear having a child with someone of your own race because you do not want them to look like your race or fear that they may have hair like people in your race. You would be embarking on a deep rooted self-hate and possibly genocide of your own race as well.
In fact, cross-culturally, there would actually be a notable degree of classical conditioning rooted within any person who holds such fears in dating someone from another race or culture, particularly Black/African American culture.
The daily thought about classical conditioning resulted in a large email response from persons of all races. Black/African American’s wanted to know if they had been “classically conditioned” now that they too date outside of their race.
There is nothing wrong with dating outside of your culture or race. An article was produced earlier in 2012, Dating in Sacramento (http://rootshed.com/article/dating-sacramento) that highlighted Black women and their feelings about dating outside of their race. I encourage you to read that article if you are curious about the details.
Sacramento is one of the most diverse cities in the Nation making interracial dating almost inevitable. Furthermore, the ultimate goal of any and all of my examinations is to bring unity amongst all people, not divide them.
The focus on examining Black/African Americans is primarily the result of the repetitious mistreatment of Black culture and the need to highlight the way Black/African Americans are treated so that people will recognize the problem and consciously move to change it.
In any situation where improvement is needed, one must turn their attention to the areas where improvement may be needed and it is those issues that are examined, highlighted or disproved.
For example, it is a very common controversy that Blacks had no contribution to civilization or humanity so, History of Africa was started to provide a thorough review of history that reflects the Black contribution.
Everything produced works to the goal of unity. Interracial dating itself is the understanding that we are all the same and worthy of love. Can classical conditioning exist within the interracial dating realm? Yes, because classical conditioning can exist in any and every realm.
It is often said that too much of anything is unhealthy for you and I too subscribe to that ideology.
All things should have middle, only dating a certain race will be unhealthy just as choosing to not date a certain race would be an equal extreme.
Being honest about our bias and working to remove them should be a common goal.
U-N-I-T-Y…is always the common goal.
