Real Fears That People In Interracial Relationships Have

"I always stare at interracial couples in public and wonder how they met because their cultures seem so different."

Interracial relationships are no longer taboo in many parts of the world, so why are people still insecure about being in one?

In the video above, quotes are read from people in interracial relationships who sent them in to Whisper, an application that lets people post whatever they want anonymously.

The posts explain these people's deepest fears, from being judged by their family to even being criticized by strangers in public.

Around 4.6 per cent of all married and common-law couples in Canada are interracial, which is a 15 per cent jump from the last census in 2006, according to Stats Canada. Although the numbers are on the rise, do you think many Canadians would still feel the same way as the people in this video?
