For those of you out there who are dating someone of a different ethnicity than you, don't be afraid to stand up for yourselves too, as long as you do it with a smile on your face.
These are the 10 questions interracial couples should never have to answer. It's silly how we are so caught up in labeling and naming people's race and ethnicity, as if putting them in a box is the only way to understand their existence.
If there's one thing that being in interracial relationships all my life has taught me, it's patience.
