Because of pure ignorance. SOME people stare at all sorts of DIFFERENT types of people. Whether handicapped, bigger people, people with piercings, you name it someone will stare at them. If this is happening to you the best thing you can do is just smile at them. It will *bleep* them off ;D!! And I guarantee they will quite staring at you.

I know what you mean OP. Both my sisters are with black men & both have daughters & whenever I'm with one of my sisters bf & my neice, people stare. But honestly in my experience, most of our stares come from black people.  :dontknow:

But if people stare, I just smile!!

sometimes i wonder if people are even conscious
that they're blatantly staring. i think they do it
because they see something they don't quite
understand...

if you can't help but stare, atleast do it while
i'm not looking. jeez  :P

Because they are still raised to be raciest.  I personally dont stare because I deeply believe to each there own and like seeing people reach out beyond their skin color and traditional raising.
I live in Kentucky and know of the family traditions and believes that effect children and young adults.  Some people just really arent educated enough to think for themselves and they rely heavily on family tradition and/or political/religious belief.

[It is just something everyone is not used to, who cares if people stare, ignore them, I am sure they got something stuck in their teeth.

I really haven't notice it in the town where I live.  It is just such a normal thing here. I live in Indiana, but the town I live in is like 33%hispanic 25%white 25% black and like 17% asian and anyone else who wishes to live here. It is just the norm here.  I think that is why I like it here.  I love the variety. :thumbsup:

I know what you mean. I'm asian and my boyfriend is white and some people do STARE like we're doing something wrong. So, when we do catch people like that, we just do major PDA.

It's a sort of racism/racial pride thing, I've noticed. My gf is white, and I got a lot of grief from my "fellow" blacks for dating her. The usual taunt used was, "What, a sister ain't good enough for you?" I just roll my eyes. It's all pretty laughable.

Some People are just ignorant. The stares never bother me. I could care less. What gets me is that when people say to me "oh you must be dating that white dude(i'm a black female) because he has money" when in reality He's a broke college student just like me....or they say you must hate you own men which is just crazy. I have black boyfriends too...So your not the only one.
