“You start realizing you’re more similar than different…by bringing light into the differences you find out how similar you are….its human and human in the end”

“I think what’s more important is intercultural….it’s not necessarily about skin colour, but its about cultural differences…..with cultural differences you can meet a common ground but there has to be a mutual respect for value systems”

“There’s a lot of baggage in this country….people like to think that everything’s cool….but there’s a lot of things that go unsaid”

Have you ever dated outside of your race? South Africa has had a painful history of racial segregation, which is still evident today. A group of 5 South Africans from varying backgrounds sat down to discuss their personal encounters with the intricacies and challenges that come with interracial dating.
