Older generations and interracial dating
Throughout world history, there have been many instances where nations try to conquer others and force them to follow their particular way of life.Nowadays, it is becoming more popular for people to date outside of their culture.Being a product of interracial parents, I know all the difficulties they went through in the 90s and, even today, what I personally have to endure.Even though it has become more common for people to date outside of their culture and race, there are still many difficulties present.
This makes sense because the idea of dating someone outside of their culture was not as common in their generations.
Love is the last area where even educated and progressive parents can still openly teach prejudice at home – which is the only reason interracial marriage is still scandalous.
Few peers of any recent generation give much thought to friends dating outside of their race.
On January 23, Chrissy Teigen — model, “domestic goddess,” and number one John Legend troll — decided to have some fun with Richard Spencer on Twitter. Teigen’s @reply: “you became someone who was punched in the face.”When Spencer attempted to embarrass Teigen, implying she was not educated enough to recognize a quote from Mandela (while, again, the quote in question was not from Mandela), Teigen responded with “you are a literally a nazi. Not only is multiraciality the antithesis of racism, the tweet suggests, it’s Nazi kryptonite — and if social engagement is any indication, the general Twittersphere agreed.
Now best known as the neo-Nazi who got punched at the January 20 presidential inauguration, Spencer was salving his wounded pride with a “selection of Nelson Mandela quotes. The tweet to which Teigen responded, however, was actually a quote from Swiss psychoanalyst Carl Gustav Jung. With over 60,000 retweets and likes, Teigen’s pièce de résistance received more activity than any others in the exchange combined.
