Swirling With Another Minority Ain’t As Easy As it Sounds

June 29, 2011  |  

 

On its face, it seems like interracial dating and mating with another minority–Hispanic, Asian, Middle Eastern–would seem a bit easier than hooking up with a WASP-y white guy, right?  It seems to be easier.  After all, you’re closer to matching in the melanin department, and as mutual minorities, it seems like you could have this “We’re all in this together! Us against The Man!” attitude.  Well,turns out it’s just not that simple.

Aside from the superficial “skin issue,” you often take on a culture that might be completely foreign to you as a Westernized woman born and raised in the USA.  And sadly, other minorities suffer from the same internal conflicts of colorism and bigotry that we do.
