I felt a certain pride in hanging out with people who were Dominican, Indonesian, Laos, Filipino, Hispanic, etc. My parents taught me good morals, like not judging others by their appearance, though I did have to keep my jaw clenched when I visited relatives.They would ask me about the “colored kids” at my job as a camp counselor and spoke the word “bi-racial” in hushed tones, as if it were something to be ashamed of.Allie Dowdle, a white high school senior at a private school outside of Memphis, was crushed to experience intense backlash from her parents upon showing them a picture of her boyfriend Michael, who happens to be black."I'll never forget the yelling my parents did, when they expressed how disappointed they were in me, that I could do so much better," Allie said.They took away her car as well as her phone, cut her off from her savings account, and most drastically, refused to pay a dime towards her college tuition.Still set on going to college, Allie has resorted to seeking out the public's goodwill in order to help her reach the ,000 she needs for her first year.While 85% of Millennials say they would be fine with a marriage to someone from any of the groups asked about, that number drops to about three-quarters (73%) among 30-to-49-year-olds, 55% among 50-to-64-year-olds, and just 38% of those ages 65 and older.

I am looking at potential job opportunities for after I finish grad school and I am from OH but looking to possibly move (likely move) to a southern state (NC, TN or KY) however, the biggest concern for me is (stupid I know) what is the interracial dating like in NC? I am a African American female and I exclusively date white men and Hispanic men (but mostly white). It consists of pawn shops, strip clubs, hustle marts, and furniture stores that offer lay away for a used 50$ couch with cigarette burns...
I know that I have heard that the South can be a little against that but I am really hoping that a move will be a good fresh start for me and will lead me to an amazing person to be with. The male to female ratio will most likely be very much in your favor but only if you're into military types.
This was the place I was born and raised; where nobody had to whisper the “n word” or hesitate to stick some feathers in their hair and paint their skin red as a sign of school spirit.
Growing up in New Hampshire didn’t prevent me from making friends or dating guys who weren’t white.
