Are You Prejudice? by Delina Hill-Brooker

I had a conversation with a close friend of mine a few weeks ago. She told me that she was happy that her son broke up with his white girlfriend because she really didn’t like her. She wanted him to be with a black girl. She went on to say, “I admit it, I’m prejudice.” I disagreed and posed the question, “If the ex-girlfriend kept him happy and wasn’t doing any harm what difference does it make?” She replied, “Well, when you are in an interracial relationship it’s just harder. Maybe it’s because we haven’t equipped them to deal with the things that come with dating out side of your race.” Now I have never dated outside of my race, but the truth of the matter is, ANY relationship can be hard. Dealing with other people can be hard. You would think that in today’s times people (especially black people) wouldn’t think this way. We are so quick to pull the race card, but if this is our mentality how often can the race card be pulled on us? We all have our preferences and that is fine, but to not like someone for this one reason to me is not acceptable. To each it’s own. God is love and we should love each other as God loves us. `If we are unable to love others for silly things, things that they cannot control, why should others love us and treat us with respect for who we are? In closing I’d just like to say, if it is a healthy relationship and you love and care for each other…Do what makes you happy.
