Selecting love: Interracial partners talk white privilege and ‘colour blindness’

Weekend Breakfast host Sara-Jayne King chats to two interracial partners about their individual experiences.

Peter Phillip and Veronika Komarkova came across in Cape Town after matching for a dating application.

Peter, whom identifies as black colored, was born in Malawi and Veronika, whom identifies as white, came to be in the Czech Republic. They’ve both remained in a true number of various nations in their life.

Nicola Bruns and Bryan Bergsteedt came across while their studies at Stellenbosh University. They’ve been together for six years and they are engaged to be hitched.

Nicola, whom identifies as white, spent my youth in Paarl and Bryan, whom identifies as coloured, was raised in Johannesburg.

The two couples open regarding how battle and identity have actually shaped their relationships and exactly how they have been addressed by buddies, household, and strangers. (pay attention to the complete conversation in the sound at the end)
