Although it's 2015, racism and racial profiling still very much exist.

It's hard to fathom that in this day and age, there are still people who disgrace others based on not only their skin, but who they're dating.

Despite all of the kumbaya anecdotes and data out there, such as the fact that mixed-race families are the fastest-growing demographic in America, there is not a single interracial couple I know who has been together for an extended period of time who has not experienced some awkwardness or indignity that same-race couples do not.

During a previous interview, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio recounted that, while dating, he and his wife, Chirlane Mc Cray, who is black, were surrounded and taunted by a group of teens shouting “Jungle Fever” at them.

But when you are part of an interracial couple, it’s how it’s asked, where it’s asked and whom it’s asked by, that usually sends a signal that this isn’t just another nosy inquiry from your elderly aunt (who wants to make sure you’re not trying that new fangled online dating stuff).
