    I have noticed more and more Multi-Racial Marriages how does the affect the children and as well as do you think the different cultures clash?

    Is it ethically right?

      I am in a multi-racial marriage and it has not affected our son in anyway, nor do his friends look at him diferently. We have not had any issues with culture clash and our families have embraced the relationship. Have you read the history of why our skin color is what it is? We are all one people, so the skin color does not make one different from another.
      Have we dealt with insults here in the U.S.? Once or twice but we have overcome by planting seeds. It is how you carry yourself and how you handle the situation. We so no color in our family, nor do many others as we should embrace people for who they are and not the color of there skin.smile

      You'd be damned if you do and you'd be damned if you don't. People have a way of finding faults with everyone and everything. Since you can't keep everyone happy, hence, atleast try to keep one person and that is , You. Hang upside down with no khakis if you like! Who gives a sh** to what people think!

      How is this an ethical issue? 

      Multi-Racial unions are very common in Australia.  Love does not recognise race or religion.  I have many friends who are mixed race and they've never had any problems.  People are often intrigued by their cultural mix and they have the added exposure to 2 different cultures.

      Most of my own relationships have been with men from different cultural backgrounds to myself.  Our parents get over it because they don't have a choice.

      What is racial? You must be talking about the biological feature which determines the visible, physical traits of a human; yet, we are all human. Yes, cultures can clash because since there are so many, and, some are sooo different from another, one may experience Xenophobia. What is ethical? Humane treatment of others??!

      How is anything "ethnically right"? Love doesn't have a color. And the kids are not effected at all if both parents are respectful and open about their own culures. But if they are married, nine times out of ten they are respectful and open. The only problem they will have is the outside world judging them.

      I don't think any one person can speak for society "in general" or otherwise.  I can only speak as one member of society and I honestly don't think about multi-racial relationships at all.  Why should I?  Who someone chooses to be with is certainly none of my business.  They aren't hurting me.  In this day and age, 2010, I really don't think I need to worry about their children, although I think white people are probably more accepting. It's fairly common. I illustrate my feelings on the subject as follows:
      If there is a white man on one operating table, a black man on another operating table, and a mexican, an asian, and an Eskimo on operating tables around the room and you cut open the chesk of each man - their hearts will all be the same color.  That makes me slightly color blind.  Our world currently has bigger problems to worry about than skin color.  Besides, in general, didn't this nation elect the son of not only a multi-racial, but a multi-cultural couple?  I'm hearing a term lately that we are in a "post-racist" era.  I would like to think that is true for most enlightened citizens.

      Multiracial marriages do not affect the children, but racist views said to the children, or in their presence, can affect them. So, the damage is often done by others.

      Different cultures may or may not clash depending on their values, belief systems, etc. If the husband is of a culture that promotes polygamy, and his wife is a red-bloodied American, there will be BIG problems if they have not settled their views and agreed.

      Is it ethically right? Are there mixed marriages in the Bible? Yes, and God did not frown upon them. Moses' sister Miriam was punished with leprosy because she criticized his wife because of her dark complexion. Song of Solom is a metaphorical poem that compares the Christian's relationship with Jesus to that of two lovers. At one point the man says, "Do not look upon me because I am dark . . . I am dark but comely." This may be almost a paraphrase.

      I don't think America shows its prejudice toward the children of mixed marriages anymore, but I see prejudice when it comes to the couple.

      Cultures do still clash. My son stands ready to marry a woman who is the product of an interracial relationship. She never knew the white side of her family because they were ashamed of her. But, her father raised her without regrets and without bitterness. She has family members who are less than pleased with the planned nuptials; but I don't know how we are going to evolve to a color blind society unless we just stop looking.

      I'm a little confused by the question of ethics. What is ethically wrong with two humans falling in love and making a life together?

    But for some reason "social politics" tell me, I have to check the "blackman's box", will filling out official papers.

    My mom: mix-white and black
    My dad: mix-black and white
    Grandparents: mix-white and black
    Grandparents: mix-black and white

    My mom'ma's color is white. 
    My dad's is black.

    Here's my only problem with the system.  They need to have a special little box for mixed people. 
    They can title the box- COLORED.

        I was feeling the same way while filing out paperwork for my son to get into school. He is black and philipino and I put black as ethnicity and they said that he would have to be bussed to another school.I went to the school district and changed it, the next day he was put into the school I originally signed him up for. I feel that they should have a box to put for biracial individuals. Since they don't acknowledge them that way then it makes it look as if it's a bad thing to children.

        No.  According to my government I'm just an ordinary black man.  My grandmother is a nationalized Jew from Germany. But she's considered white.  My mom looks white. Her skin is real fair.  My skin is real fair.  I look white, except for my hair.  But I'm cataloged black.  We are all cataloged black expect Grams.

        It's no big deal though.  It's all good. I've never had any problems. None of my family has had any real trouble with this or that. I don't feel a racist buzz in America today.

    I can't speak for other countries, but in the United States it seems to be a regional thing as far as what "society" thinks. Personally, I live in Wyoming and a HUGE percentage of relationships and families are multi-racial and no one thinks anything odd about it. However, apparently this isn't true all over the country. I've had a few people from other states ask me if particular couples ever got any flak for being from different ethnic backgrounds...to me, the concept that it's in some way strange is just bizarre, but some people still haven't gotten past their upbringing or wherever else their various biases have come from.

    It's a slap in the face to men when women of their race go with a man of a different race. Does anybody believe that the phenomenon of white women going after black men doesn't bother black women? Do you believe most Asian men are happy about so many Asian women/white men couples? I know for a fact, here in Philadelphia, that most Latino and black men get upset when they see one of their women with a white man. And vice versa for white men. I had a girlfriend who was Filipino/black/white, but she looked Hispanic. I got more dirty looks from black and Latino men than I care to remember.
    I don't like white women dating outside their race, either. I consider it dating "down" and betraying their race.
    This topic needed a different point of view, btw. Please, be civil with your replies and don't start with the derogatory names.

I don't think it is a slap in the face to white guys that I am dating a hispanic one. I fell in love with a guy who just happens to be hispanic. I've dated white guys, and I would date a black guy, asian guy, whatever. I'm definitely not dating "down", I am so lucky to have my boyfriend, I'm sure he could do better smile

    I tend to date people I like without regard to their race and have had several interracial relationships.  I have to chuckle at the notion that I am "dating down" from my race as it infers that my race is somehow superior to another race.  I believe we are all just people, and that seems to be a very difficult concept for many to understand.  If someone intrigues me, regardless of race, I find myself attracted to them.  It's worked out pretty well so far.

    I am in a multi-racial marriage, and I don't really think about it until I see stuff like this. Love knows no color, in my opinion. It shouldn't be an issue, but unfortunately it continues to be because people choose to be or are raised to be close-minded. That should be the social issue to address, not multi-racial relationshiops.

    Not sure what you mean by mixed relationships, as in, are you talking about the race of couples or the colour of the couples skin?

    I married a man from a different race.  We have children and they are of mixed blood.  For the best part and living in Australia, their racial backgrounds are invisible in this society. 

    I think acceptance of mixed relationships is becoming more accepted in society today, than what it was 30 years ago because people have learned and continue to learn tolerance.  If we don't, then the blight of mixed relationship discussions from the past will follow our children into the future.

        Non-white men seek out white women because they know they're easier to control, dominate and manipulate than minority women. Plus, due to many white womens self esteem issues and "white guilt" it makes them easy "prey" for non-white men.

          I don't think white women can be manipulated" or are "easier to control" than another race. Some people are just attracted to their own race (no problem in that) or another, or will date someone of any race. I'm attracted to hispanic guys, I grew up in South Florida, where that isn't strange. However, I have dated white guys, and would date another race as well.

          Just get over your personal opinion, I'm not sure where it came from, maybe one experience you had, with one woman. But it definitely is not the norm, by any means.

      I guess it depends, too, on your sphere of influence.  I was going to go into class issues, earlier, but decided not to.  I think Spike Lee actually said a lot of things best in some of his movies.

      I don't think you are sorry.  If you cared this discussion wouldn't exist.  I find it both sexist and racist.  Do you have metrics to support your comment above?  My brother is in a relationship with a "white" girl and he adores her.  They adore each other.  Our peers (who are a mixed bag of nationalities) don't see this as "getting over on the white man". He doesn't see her as a conquest or "score".  He was raised to respect women.

      You are not offensive; you are stating your opinion. If I did not know mixed couples, black men and white women, married to each other, professional, upper middle class, the black men breaking their necks for the white women, with two professional jobs, unlike they would ever do for a black woman, I would share your view too. My scope is wide, and I have seen much and cannot deny. There are cases as you have described too. There are black and white men who will date all, use women, discard them, and marry none.

      I have seen white men use black women like tobacco and spit them out. We can stereotype any gender or races of people, or we can call a spade a spade..

    I'm not sure you can ask "what does society think about multi-racial relationships" since each individual makes up our society.  So what you're really asking is -"what do I think about multi-racial relationships" and the answer is- It should be accepted and it should be fine, but can we really say that in 2009 we have grown up that much from our ancestors and fully accepted others people views especially when they are different from ours and they look different than us.  In today's society it is good to see people free and able to be with who they love, yet we still have to grow up and accept that all of us were created the same and the only real difference is our skin color.  Cultures and habits are different also, yet they make each of us unique and we should want to share that with others.

    Some of the comments I find here are absolutely immature and down right stupid. Dig up history and you will find tribes only married among themselves. As world grew closer countries, religion, caste, language became the neo-tribes.
    Remember all of these countries, religion, caste, language, etc are man made. To me we are one race and it does not matter if people of different races marry.

    Inter racial marriages having trouble due to cultural, racial, language differences is completely different thing.

It adds fuel to the fire and makes them aggravate the hater by working hard to continue the behaviors. If you tell a man that he should keep his hands off that Asia woman, he is going to work overtime to have an Asian by Christmas. So, haters need to work on their persuasive techniques. Those 1969 ones are not effective. I really think that you are wasting energy either way it goes. All of these mixed relationships are consequences of mistakes made in the past. Its a pandemic.

    I stand by my view that White women who date outside their race are dating "down." This obviously means they have no respect for themselves.
    Interracial relationships are a weird kink for people where the non-white male gets to "have" a White woman and the woman gets to be dominated which helps her deal with her white guilt. She thinks she's helping society by submitting to the non-white male, when all she is doing is lowering herself. A non-white male can never truly love a White female, but they can love the fact that they obtained a White woman in the war against the White man. He doesn't love you, he has lust and anger for you. If you're happy with angry sex, more power to you.

      So you also think that white women are superior to women of other races, so you're a racist.

      Thinking a non-white male can never truly love a white female, so you don't know what love is.

      You think that women feel guilty for being their race, so you have no respect for women.

      You think that all non-white males hate white males and are plotting against them, so you are close minded and don't associate with people of other races than your own.

              There are many interracial couples that are successful, and have beautiful and healthy children. Just because you have a child with someone of a different race doesn't mean the child won't look similar. The first rule of genetics... spread the genes apart.
