OMG: What is so wrong about interracial relationships? I am in one and all most people do around us is just stare at us when we walk by... I thought it was really common and acceptable in society!?

  1. nothing wrong, but it's just rare

    when people see something rare, they look

  2. It's not rare. People who think it's rare make up the ignorant portion of society. Hasn't this world progressed to the point of cultures and races mixing?

    1. It's "rare" relative to visibly non-interracial couples.

    2. It depends on the races of the two people involved. Some pairings are quite rare and will cause people to stare.

      It's like seeing people with noticeably different ages together in a relationship.

    3. Like an Asian girl and brown dude.

    4. Or an Inuit and a Pygmy.

  3. I'm not staring at the couple. If the chick is attractive, I'm checking her out. I don't care about the interracial relationship but maybe that's just me.

  5. Nothing's wrong with them. People who are staring are either looking at you or your partner. Congratulations: one or both of you is clearly very attractive.

  6. Acceptable, yes. Uncommon, no. I get similar stares from being in any kind of (gay) relationship, people just don't see it as often as they see other relationships, and perhaps they aren't staring out of disapproval, but rather curiosity.

  7. I've been in an interracial relationship for 2 years and no one stares. (But judging by the comments above maybe I'm just ugly, haha)

  8. It could just be jealously that they could not pull a chick/dude of whatever race themselves.

  9. Maybe because now that you're in an interracial relationship you're more prone to notice people looking at you because on some level you believed that others would be staring when you entered said relationship.
    TL;DR - Possibly a cognitive bias.
