In the comments, lots of other women in XF/SAM relationships are relating. Their social circles are giving them shit for dating Desi men, and justifying it by bringing up racist stereotypes.
Really highlights how alive and well racism is towards us. As Desi men increasingly date out, the backlash will only exacerbate.
To those of you in interracial relationships: Keep fighting the good fight. You’re actively making it easier for brown men to date who they want in the future. Things will inevitably get better in the next decade as long as we keep improving our image.
The hate we receive is a side effect of the negative stereotypes against us dying a slow death. Some people just can’t stand seeing us succeed.
