For a long time, I have toyed around with the idea of writing a blog about this subject and I have finally decided to take a plunge and just do it. I love interracial couples and have friends that are either married or dating out of their race, and I have noticed that lately, there are increasingly more interracial couples at my church, in my suburb, at shopping centres and other public places than at any other time (at least in my lifetime). They even have a programme nowadays that tells love stories and have featured at least two interracial couples. Could it be that society is opening up more to the idea of marrying outside their race? I know for sure that increased intimate interactions with people from different cultures does assist in crumbling pre-conceived prejudices, and in some cases heal the society of past ills that may have been committed in the past.
