They’re cute, funny, and sincere with similar interests and values. But for all the praise and comments my husband Vaughan and I have received throughout our relationship (he’s Black, and I’m a Korean American adoptee) about our future adorable biracial babies and how cool and progressive our relationship is, you would think we had achieved ultra-super-special dating status. Race is certainly a hot topic today, and it seems especially paramount to Millennials to prove how racist we are. I fully believe we are called to initiate, grow, and maintain healthy cross-cultural relationships, and that being part of the kingdom of God means experiencing more than just your little corner of it.
And what better way to do that than to actually date someone who is a different race? If heaven is going to be a great multitude of people from every nation, tribe, people, and language worshiping together (Revelation 7:9), and if we are to be praying for God’s will to be done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew ), then there should be some element of being with people different than us here in this lifetime.

Don't worry, the anxiety dies down once you get the hang of how things work.Family parties are even more intimidating because here come all the inappropriate questions like "do you only date *insert race here*? Newsflash: not every Asian woman is with a white man for their citizenship.
