Interracial dating and racism
It's been less than 50 years since blacks and whites have been able to legally marry, thanks to the Supreme Court, and 15.1% of new marriages in 2010 were between different races or ethnicities.
Too often, on-screen interracial relationships are limited to the pairing of a white person, usually a male, with a woman of color, ignoring the fact that other constructions do exist.
At the same time, from the target’s standpoint, it’s more oppressive.
The central, categorical objection to gay marriage is that same-sex couples can’t produce biological children together.
Sharing the basic premise, originating from the 'taboo' nature of interracial relations, individuals of other racial groups are classified as forbidden sexual objects; the result of a racial fetish.
This sexualised reductionism is, concurrently, a form of sexual racism.
If you're in an interracial relationship, you may be crazy about your partner but dismayed that others disapprove.
