The Stoop

  

What does love look like when your partner might not ‘get it’? We’ll hear from three interracial couples on how they talk about race and racism, and how sometimes, with kids in the mix, those conversations can be even harder. 

We’ll also hear from Professor Shantel Buggs author of the study Dating In the Time of #BlackLivesMatter: Exploring Mixed-Race Women's Discourses of Race and Racism. She interviewed dozens of women to see whether awareness of racial issues mattered when they were choosing a partner, asking how socially aware do you expect your non-black partner to be?
