Dating someone from a different race exposes you to cultures that you otherwise might be closed off from.
If you notice eyes on you and your significant other as you walk down the street, don’t automatically assume it’s because the passersby disapprove of your interracial union.The #Scandal hashtag now even comes with a cute interracial couple emoji!
