Interracial dating is wrong
I’ve heard lots of Christian responses about IRRs being a “greater picture of God’s kingdom” because they demonstrate reconciliation and unity.
Besides the fact that at that point, we were not even close to considering a future together, was I supposed to feel special that I was dating someone who was a different race than me?But I also know that sin has twisted all good things, and that even our good and godly intentions when dialoguing about race have a habit of missing the mark.We tend to either reduce IRR stories, whether they are our own or others’, to a party trick (something to show off and exploit rather than understand and love), or we elevate them to a pedestal where we can worship and idolize them.And if you are intentionally seeking out an IRR, you could be contributing to racism by using your significant other as an object to exploit for your own purposes.How ironic that the thing we do to show the world we aren’t racist actually ends up perpetuating racism.
Search for interracial dating is wrong:
I was married to a white woman, who sadly passed away last year. But our current media dramatizes and focuses more on black and white. The very thing that interracial dating seeks to promote, which is diversity, it destroys.
