What is racism? Expecting your child to stay within their own racial group is not racist, it is just personal beliefs. The problem with this thinking, though, is that we no longer have true blood lines in every geographical location. Yes, some people try to stay within that context, but many do not. It is no longer Mexican, Cuban, or African. It is now Mexican American, Cuban American, African American, or other mixtures of ethnic groups. The true races of yesterday are not going to be the true races in 50 years. Yes, there will still be some lingering folks who might be from a true blood line, but not many. I would be more concerned with my child being happy and finding their best friend and soulmate instead of ending up with someone they are not happy with, just because they are white.
