Happy Valentine’s Day! First note that there’s a difference between interracial dating, and cross-cultural dating (if you don’t think so, give it a minute). If you are one of those people who think there’s no difference between, say Africans and African-Americans, you will find this show educational. Americans and Asians, Chinese and Japanese, Puerto Ricans and Mexicans. Even when people look the same, the cultural differences can be stark.
In this show we’ll focus on the kinds of cultural differences encountered when one partner is African, and the other is, say Canadian.
We discuss issues like…
• The origins of Wadzi’s name
• The differences between African and African American men
• How culture affects perceptions of family and in-laws
• The receptivity of different communities to interracial relationships
