Although I’m a mix of Filipino Palestinian, I ended up marrying an English guy so our household traditions is like Halo-Halo which means MIX-MIX. I always wanted to date someone outside my race because I find other cultures which are not similar to mine interesting but never ever in a million years, I would have thought I’d end up with a British man and I’m so happy and grateful for having him in my life.
When I told my family and friends that I was dating an English guy, some of them were not supportive and would throw comments here and there. So out of experience, here are the 10 Things Not To Say To An Interracial Couple because it could be rude.
