In the old days, 'controversial' in a relationship meant same-sex or mixed races.
We come from a very mixed family. We're a bunch of different races, my family. So it's very normal for us. I don't know why we're accepted. Are all of us accepted or just me?
Nordics deteriorate when mixed with other races.
Mixed messages are just part and parcel of the romantic terrain, and rather than berate yourself for any crossed wires, you'd do better to work on your future resilience.
Races are very often invented from ignorance, or for very evil purposes.
