I’m doing a research paper on Interracial relationships/ why it’s still looked down upon. I already got the Intro done, I just need everything else. Here is my intro:
“Many people who are in interracial relationships are faced with negative reactions from society every day that make it hard for them to have a normal relationship like any other couple. They deal with disapproval from family and friends, their own race and society as a whole. Although interracial relationships may be legal, it is still highly looked down upon. What I want to know is why interracial relationships are so controversial? Interracial couples are growing more and more every year, but are still experiencing the same negativity and comment as if we were in the early 50s. Interracial relationships are still being bashed on because society doesnt like the thought of mixing two different cultures and traditions, theyre still a little racist, and they dont like the fact that a bi-racial child will come out of it.”
Rest of paper:
2nd paragraph: Backround & Origins: How and when did it start? What caused this event? What purpose need did it serve?
3rd paragraph: Immediate Effects and Reactions: What did contemporary news accounts have to say? How was this event first received by the public? Was there controversy?
