Open your mind and your heart to the possibilities for love. Neither of you should see the other as a chief ambassador or racial educator for your group.
Be aware that there may be cultural differences about certain things like flirting. As people of colour, we are very used to being the ones who are discriminated against.
The fastest way to do that is by meeting people of different backgrounds.Be aware and check yourself of what prejudices against another ethnicity you may be bringing to the table.If you would not want it said to you, do not say it to someone else. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question. Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to say during commercials. What makes you think we'd be any good at choosing which pair, out of thirty, would look good with your dress? If something we said can be interpreted two ways, and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one. If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself. You don’t have the right to use slurs or be disrespectful of someone’s culture, even in jest.Even if you have a friend of a certain background that doesn’t mind racial ribbing, don’t make assumptions that your date will feel the same way.You also don’t want anyone who is dating you to make a statement. When it’s some idiot in public staring or making an offensive comment, it can be easy to ignore. After all, if you love each other who cares what anyone else thinks? Give your family notice – don’t surprise anyone by just bringing them home. Just because you’ve dated one person of a specific race doesn’t mean everyone from their background is the same. Remember that there’s a lot of diversity in any culture. Race is not a part of you getting to know each other.There’s no need to dwell on it as a topic before you even get to know each other. We are all much more than the colour of skin we were born with.
