    How do you feel about interracial relationships?

    I really got no problem with it.  If you are talking about a serious committed relationship, then if you meet that right some one he/she is the right person for you, disregards to his/her race.  If you are talking about casual relationship, if you can find the right casual relationship with this person he/she is the right one for you, if you are talking about just casual hook up (AKA freidns with benefit) once again, who cares about race?

    In terms of marriage, some of the best relationship I have seen are cross race relationship, can't say for them all of course, marriage required work, there are going to be difference, whether you are the same race or not.  Some couple are able to overcome culture difference, in their relationship, some other couple ended up getting a divorce simply because the first one like to listen to jazz music and the other one like rock.

    As we all are one and equal, there is nothing wrong in interracial relationships.

    This is the 21st century.  There are NO interracial relationships.  We are all ONE race-THE HUMAN RACE!

    I see no point of problems about it. For some instance it can be the way to unite people of different races and means there is no gap in between. As long as love is pure no question about it.

    When you say "you" do you mean to inquire of us what one personally feels about it, independent of any other factors? Or do when you say "you," are you asking about how we feel about it in conjunction with social, political, economic factors?

    Now, I know you know that biologically and genetically there is no such thing as "race."

    Perhaps you're really asking: How do we feel about how we think other people feel about interracial relationships? You follow? How do 'I,' for example, feel about what I believe 'society' thinks about interracial relationships? But as I know you also know, JenJen0703, it is very often the case that when we engage in this exercise the attribution is a cover for our own feelings. For example, one might say 'I don't have a problem with Muslims, but some of MY FRIENDS do!"

    In most cases, I think, these "friends" are nowhere to be found. They serve the function of a specter, a kind of psychic garbage dump. Now then, if you're interested, I did write a hub about what I think are the sociological difficulties (even in this day and age) faced by "interracial" couples...

    When racial division in America was at a higher degree I was a different person with regards to this kind of union but time has passed and changes have been made as well as my views.  There are are a number of good reasons why interracial relationships are ok but my favior is Listening to and look at  Mariah Carey-Oh, but to be young again..

    if two people commit to one another and behave like adults then i have no problem with it all,... but be advised,... the world will still judge you, treat you unfairly,... i myself never would,... but you must understand,... the world is a cruel place.

    if you plan to bring children into the arangement,... be advised,... you will need to not only be strong enough to withstand the worlds cruelty,... but you will need to give your children the strength to withstand i as well.

    and in the end,... when you enter into a mixed race relationship,... you abdicate the race card,.... you cant play it any more.

    just sayin.

    if this makes me old school or narrow minded,... so be it.

    So, I checked comments today to this question, and so far everyone seems to be in agreement.  I also agree, that this is about the human race, not ethnic groups.  Times are changing and so are races.  Because people are more open to interracial relationships in this day and age, we are inventing new "races," so to speak.  In 30-plus years, it will be even more different.

    I think they are a good idea but I don't see it happening much. Most people in America know nothing about other cultures or races and are not interested to find out either.

    Interracial relationships are cool with me.

    Personally, for example, I am always ready, willing and able to hook up with any woman who rings my bell and who feels that I ring her bell, whether she is as black as coal or as white as the driven snow, or whether she is some other color.

    I think this question has become one that is more about class and culture than about race.  I have done intense study on cultural differences and although people don't like to admit it, they are definitely there...and they are annoying on all sides.

    If two people are of different color but are socially, religiously, and culturally similar, race is not nearly the issue it would be if these things were quite different.  This is also true for people of the same race who have relationships.

    The more alike we become over time, the fewer the problems will be regarding racial relationships.  If people cling to their individual differences, however, the chances for interracial relationships become greatly diminished.

    I'm born from an interracial relationship, and therefore I feel it perfectly natural. Although for those who've been brought up to believe that it is wrong, will continue to think like that until proven wrong... So until they're brought into the reality that it makes absolutely no difference what-so-ever they will thin k it's either wrong or frowned upon.
