Hi, my name is Reka Morvay. I'm a psychologist, and I'm going to talk to you about racism in interracial dating. Now, you might think that we've come a long way since the days of the fifties when it was big...a big deal if a couple was interracial. But unfortunately, sometimes these issues can still come up, especially if you live in a community that's not very accepting of interracial relationships. I think that, in general, what helps is if you are just cognizant and you're aware of your partner's background. I mean, this is good advice even for non-interracial relationships is just to be aware of the family background and the cultural background of your partner, and be sensitive to the cultural background of your partner. Dealing with an environment that is not open-minded to interracial dating can be very difficult, and any couple that chooses, of course, to be together despite this has to understand that this will probably put a strain on the relationship. And the best thing you can do is to keep an open mind and be supportive of your partner, and try to understand what cultural background they are coming from. Be honest with yourself and acknowledge if you, yourself, have some prejudices about your partner's race that might be detrimental to your relationship, and be open to discussing these.
