Stephanie Baldwin - Why are most people OK with interracial relationships if it's between a white man and non-white woman but not between a non-white man and white woman?
Muhammad Rasheed - For one, the interracial relationship was listed as a formal social progress goal of liberalism since the very beginning of the civil rights movement. The majority of people will at least show a lip service of support from behind their public mask so as to demonstrate a willing acceptance of political correctness in a performance of basic civility.
For two, under the patriarchal traditions of the West's White Supremacist Ideology, it is the male of the white racist aristocracy who holds the power in society, therefore the Caucasian male is considered "a catch!" for non-white women and the union elevates the latter’s social status. For the white woman—who holds a lesser status under her male counterpart in the patriarchy—her decision to allow the inherently low status non-white males to "bag her" is considered foolish and recklessly irresponsible (similar to a male catching feelings for a drug-addicted prostitute).
