Do you take a second look when you see a interracial couple?

When I go shopping with my brother and his girl friend(she is white) people always look and stare as if they've never seen a interracial couple. What is the big deal?

  • There are some people who just don't agree with it. I'm not sure why people have such an issue if someone is in love with someone who treats them right and respects them it shouldn't matter if they have hot pink polka dots! My boyfriend is heavily tattooed and pierced and we get strange looks as well. Unfortunately some people are still stuck in the 1800s

  • Eh, I sometimes do, but I'm in one myself, so I do it because I'm secretly thinking "Right on dudes!" Hahaha.

    I couldn't tell you why people stare. People stare at my boyfriend and me. I'm white, he's Hispanic.

  • I do look. I'm curious by nature. Hubs and I get weird looks all the time. He's a big Filippino and I'm a petite white girl. It's all good.

  • No. But my BF and iI constantly get looks which is funny because he 100% Puerto Rican but looks white and I'm half Puerto Rican half white, but look completely Puerto Rican.


    I hate ignorant people though, its like, get a life is yours that uninteresting?!
