*Many African American and white couples confront many issues when presenting a mate from the opposite race to their family.

While in this day and age, many of us are past all the race nonsense. On the other hand, some people in our families still aren’t. They will ask you if you’re worried about the stares you will receive or what your children may go through.

The other day, our partner site Essence, had a question from a user revolving around the topic for their Dr. Sherry.

Check it out below:

Q: “Dr. Sherry, I’m an African-American woman who has always been most attracted to White guys. I’ve never actually dated one because I feel as though my friends and family would not approve and would give me hell about it. I’m turning 30 this year and I want to get serious about love and marriage. I would like to try dating the kind of men who really turn me on — men of all races – not just Black men. Help me!” – Riley
