  1. 1. The Consequences of Interracial Relationships<br />By <br />John Kofsky<br />
  2. 2. Pros<br />There are plenty of positives too go along with the negatives such as:<br />Possibly learning another language<br />Being exposed to another country<br />Learning the general knowledge of different cultures<br />Becoming open minded to other cultures<br />Help break down racial barriers which exist in today’s society. <br />
  3. 3. On the Contrary<br />Interracial relationships are growing faster diluting the world’s many cultures.<br />Two or more races combine together creating a new culture diminishing what is left of the previous cultures.<br />The effect of this is the lack of identity and individuality of each culture.<br />
  4. 4. Sooner or later the entire earth will become one super race, stealing the ethnic backgrounds of each individual culture.<br />Being in a interracial relationship can take its toll on the psyche of that individual because of the abuse he or she might receive from outsiders.<br />
  5. 5. Growth<br />Interracial relationships rapidly growing<br />
  6. 6. Where<br />
  7. 7. The Children<br />Another point I would like to touch on is the psychological and emotional negatives that it can have on multiracial children. <br /> It can be very challenging growing up in today’s society as a multiracial adolescence. They grow up without a sense of who they are, or who their ancestors are, or even where they come from.<br />They are often subject to the prejudice of others by all races. <br />
  8. 8. Conclusion <br /> Through the extensive research that I have done, I have come to the conclusion that the cons out weigh the pros. I am not saying that we should prohibit interracial relationships, I am simply making you aware of the damages they may cause to people and more importantly the degradation of cultures as a whole.<br />
