15 Heartbreaking Confessions From People In Interracial Relationships


In this day and age, we would like to believe that everyone is colorblind, but that’s simply not true. There’s still ignorance that’s embedded in some people’s minds, which leads to hate speech and unwarranted judgment. Because of this, being in an interracial relationship sometimes comes with a unique set of challenges that many people in same-race couplings may not even have to think about. In a world where tensions are high due to race, class, and gender, some interracial couples have shared stories about their own problems dealing with discrimination because of who they love.

For a problem we’d hope is well behind us, some of these confessions (especially #5) are completely heartbreaking.

I wonder if I’m still going to have a family when they find out I’m in an interracial relationship.” Going by the confession, it’s easy to see why this has been something they’re holding back.
