I am married and have a family.
Although she admits her parents are not that supportive, she said her friends think it's no big deal because many are also dating interracially.
Yaa Asantewa "Taunya" Vonfeldt, an African American who grew up in the predominantly white town of Santa Rosa, broke through the black-white barrier six years ago when she fell in love with a white man and had with him. Tonight on its 6 p.
That experience is among the reasons Vonfeldt has become somewhat politically militant in her view that blacks should not date outside their own people. That was a .
If they couldn't feel comfortable with my family, I didn't think the relationship could go on. Interracial dating also seems to be gaining acceptance and popularity on the Internet, where there are literally dozens of Web sites dedicated to interracial dating, marriages and families.
Although Chuck's family in the working-class town of Vallejo has no qualms about the relationship, Mary said it is hard for her parents to see beyond the media-fueled stereotypes of blacks as drug dealers, thieves or gang members.
In addition, Ariana admitted that her mother would be very upset if she brought home someone black like Randy. Randy said his parents would be much less of a problem if he dated outside his race. Dozens of young people interviewed at Bay Area schools, colleges and shopping malls said they often encounter angry stares, racist comments, shock and disapproval from parents and peers when they date interracially -- especially. Charles Byrdpublisher and editor of the online magazine "Interracial Voice," believes such racial division makes little sense when so many people are mixed.
But he worried more about not being accepted by his peers at school. But nevertheless, Morrell says, things are far from perfect here.
The colorblind heart / interracial dating becoming more common
And in San Francisco, Gary of Men of All Colors Together said that membership is declining because the issue of interracial dating in the gay community is not as politically charged as it was 20 years ago. The fact that the younger generations -- unexposed to Jim Crow laws and other interracial bans of old -- are struggling with the issue, even in the Bay Area, indicates that skin color is at least as big a barrier as anything else when it comes to forming relationships.
In fact, I think it's extremely difficult. Bateen Browning said he could never date a white woman because his mother would "disown me," but the year-old, black rap artist said he could date a woman of Asian descent. Randy, who is black, and Ariana get along well with each other.
Ariana, a light-skinned Nicaraguan, said that because there are so few Nicaraguans at Galileo, she sometimes sits with her friend, Randy Merrittin an area of the courtyard seemingly reserved for African Americans. But if you take it to the next level.
But in other respects, I feel there is an invisible line between racial groups. The reason that blacks and whites remain the most controversial of the mixed matches is that America's history of slavery, segregation and bans on interracial marriages has made it difficult for many to forgive and forget, said San Rafael marriage counselor Joel Crohn.
Once, ina middle-aged white woman walked up to the couple and said, "Keep to your own race. Morrell's husband acknowledged that his mother told him at 18 that she was sad about so many "professional black men marrying non-blacks.
Morrell, 26, is now married to Ernest Morrellan African American man. But I ended up hearing that other people thought I was trying to be black. Ford, who is a year-old white and Latina woman, is raising a son whose father is black.
Things got worse, she said, when her blue-eyed, curly haired son, Avery, started identifying himself only as African American. Now I see the deterioration of the African community. But after their son arrived, race began to divide the couple. When I was dating a black guy, nobody said anything to my face. The Morrell's chose to make the drive to San Jose because that is where his family has attended for years.
But when they met his black family, that's when "a lot of things knock he. They don't really deal with it well. In Fairfield, a working-class and racially diverse town near Travis Air Force Base, Lindy Ford said she only knows "one person who doesn't date black people.
Santa Rosa Junior College student Larry Newsom said it was never tough to accept the family and friends of his former white girlfriends. Indeed, Morrell's mother -- who herself defied detractors by marrying outside her race -- initially urged her not to marry an African American. Indeed, a recent lunch hour at the racially diverse Galileo High School in San Francisco seemed divided along invisible racial lines.
It's really black-and-white relationships that are most difficult and most complicated. For the first time ever, she started talking about the difficulties of dating outside her race.
During an afternoon workshop on dating, a year-old Japanese American woman told a circle of young people that she didn't think that things were all that different from the s -- despite great advances in the civil rights movement. The experiences of the Morrells and numerous other young people show that interracial dating can still be a minefield -- although interracial marriages nationally have more than quadrupled to 1. But both agreed that if they dated they would get flak from other students of all races.
Since then, the of racially mixed marriages has gone up dramatically among Latinos, Asians and whites -- ing more than 2 percent of the U. Even so, black- white unions remain much less common.
At the time, Vonfeldt, 25 and a junior at San Francisco State Universitythought love could conquer all. And she says she faces even more prejudice: from whites who believe she "married down," and from blacks who feel that she stole "another good black man.
Jodene Morrell, a San Francisco teacher of German and Japanese heritage, stopped dating white men after a bad experience with her high school sweetheart. That year, the U. Supreme Court ruled such laws unconstitutional.
Most experts and interracial couples would agree that there is a lot less open hostility in the Bay Area, a place known for its diversity and progressive attitudes. Andrew Barlowwho's been teaching the history of race to UC Berkeley students for more than a decade, believes that some of the resistance to multiracial dating stems from the desire to have "ethnic solidarity.
For our community to be strong and proud, we need to stick together. As late assome states had anti-miscegenation laws preventing interracial marriages.
