Race relations in South Africa are steadily improving (even if we can admit that there’s a long way to go)

As a result, interracial relationships are becoming less and less stigmatised and we see this in our very own entertainment industry.

Some of our biggest and most notable celebrities and sports figures are in happy relationships with partners of a different race and we are all here for their love. We are working towards building a progressive nation and these lovers are a shining beacon for the kind of love that can exist when race is no longer a barrier.
