Teenage interracial dating Free webcam chat no creditcard
Freshman Jayda Persaud said, “If my parents thought that something wasn’t good for me, I wouldn’t do it because my parents are usually right.” Junior Dina Goodger, on the other hand, told of her parents’ vehement opposition to her dating someone of a different race, but said that she would go against their wishes to date whomever she wished.She said, “The approval of my mom is something I highly value, but if I was in a serious relationship with someone and she didn’t approve I would go with my heart and learn on my own.” Though a majority of students believe that their parents would allow them to date someone from a different background, it’s clear that many students believe their parents would not allow them to date people of all backgrounds.Last week, I posted a blog about George Lucas marrying his longtime girlfriend Mellody Hobson, and how their interracial relationship was met with a lot of congratulatory comments all over the web – which typically NEVER happens when ANY Black man decides to date a white woman.Well, one of the comments that was posted in the comments section of that blog received quite a lot of love, while my response to that comment received a few thumbs down.
Senior Stanley Li explains, “Considering our parents are from a previous generation, they’re more conservative in their views.” Junior Elina Niyazov commented that her parents’ disapproval of certain races “is something so obvious that they don’t need to say it.” When certain members of the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) were asked if they cared to comment, few said that they would disapprove of their children being in an interracial couple.
In such a situation, they often have to choose which is more important: attraction and chemistry or parent approval.
Commenting on whether she would be involved in a relationship even if her parents disagreed, Junior Maya Adut responded, “I wouldn’t date someone if my parents didn’t agree because I wouldn’t want to hurt them.” Senior Eva Jiang shared that whereas her mom would most likely agree with a partner of a different ethnic background, she said that her dad would most likely shake his head in silent disapproval.
