    What are your views on interracial dating?

    I came upon a forum while looking up nose jobs, odd enough. The forum stated that people shouldn't interracially date because it weakens the bloodline. The forum seemed a bit racist but thats their view. I on the other hand believe and support interracial dating. Well, dating of any kind as long as there is love and understanding. So what are your thoughts?

    I think that interracial dating is fine.  If someone loves another person it should not matter what race or religion they are.  I don't personally think that "weakening the bloodline" as you say, should really matter.  That's a great question though.

    We all come from different backgrounds and cultures however we should never let skin color be a deciding factor on if you should date someone or not. it's the person inside that counts.

    There's a scientific reason why interracial dating is not only okay, but encouraged:

    The reason we have children, with both a father and mother, is because variety of genes HELPS preserve the species (humans) - diversity is good for us, and healthy, and what attracts us to people who have qualities we admire, that may be different than our own.

    I think it shouldn't have a label. Dating is dating no matter who your partner is, no matter how he looks like, no matter where he comes from. There shouldn't be an "I support" or "I'm against it" Nobody has the right to judge or tell you who you're not supposed to love. That's just a bunch of nonsense. I think that by now people should have gotten over racial, sexual (etc) conflicts and discrimination or even labelling activities that all of us do such as "Interracial dating"

    Racism should really vanish from people's mind, skin colour has nothing to do with a person's character or capability to love.

    I have no problem with interracial dating.  As long as the two people are happy, then I am happy for them.

    Weird how people jump from dating to having children. I tend not to end a date by getting pregnant. There sure wouldn't be a second date!

    I think people should date whoever makes them happy. It's only when things get serious (like considering marriage and having kids) that you consider other issues like family, where you are going to live, etc.

    "Weakening the bloodline" isn't scientifically accurate.

    Mixing diverse gene pools tends to yield more viable offspring. It's intermarriage that increases the prevalence of birth defects in countless populations. A few examples: polydactylism among the Amish, blue skin among people in Appalachia, insanity and other weirdness among European royalty, Tay Sachs among Ashkenazi Jews and cystic fibrosis among white northern Europeans. And oh yeah, total kookiness in the purebred dog my parents bought. We named her "devil dog" and literally sent her to a farm upstate.

    Mutts - including human mutts - have the best chance of getting a good gene that protects against the bad.

    That is just stupid, some people are against interracial dating, because they fear people from two significant different culture might have many problem after marriage.  But the truth is that all marriage would have certain rough beginning, because they come from two different family and individual person also have different habbit, of their own.  Some other people simple or culture simply because interracial marriage is wrong to the best of my knowledge, those cultures includes, India, Vietnam and Greek, that is just plan stupid.

    In my humble opinion it is silly to think of  interracial in relationships at all. We are all human, it is not as if it is two different species coming together. Interracial anything is the residue of segregation, often times most about color and religion. 

    The definition of Interracial - Relating to, involving, or representing different races.

    Interestingly, scientists are discovering that amid all the differences and races our genes all go back to the same source...

    To me, skin color is only an external frame. We are all the same underneath. I don't have any problem with interracial dating and don't think the color of skin should come into the equation at all. Like you, I found the statement you found on the website to be a bit racist.

    If you look at any living being the color on the outside makes no difference, the being underneath is the same.  I also am a firm believer that we are spiritual beings having a human experience.  We all feel, love, hope, dream, worry, etc.  Skin color means nothing.

    Well I am interracially married and it seems that folks need to move on with their predjudice and racism.  My husband is the most loving man anyone could have.  There will always be predjudice but it really is unacceptable to think that its wrong to love another human being because of their color. Everyone deserves love no matter what color they are.

    I think interracial dating is absolutely fine. What matters is how they complete each other. I also think that interracial couples make the most beautiful children.

    There's nothing wrong with interracial dating.  There's something wrong with ignorance and hate though.  There's the culprit.  There are great people in every race and background. 

    That being said there are also a high number of people you simple just want to avoid because of their behavior.  Pay attention to behavior, not race, and you'll be ok.

    I think interracial dating is absolutely fine...I don't see any problem with it at all.

    It can't be wrong considering that some of the most beautiful and talented people are created by different races coming together.

    Besides the fact that people should be with whoever they want to regardless of their race, it's proven that having a child with someone of a different race reduces the chances of race related genetic diseases.

    Race isn't something I've ever taken into consideration when choosing someone to date. There are good people in every race, you just have to pick the right person for you. I think more and more people are starting to believe this every day.

    Anyone else notice that most of the positive comments are voted down? I suspect the same person is doing it to everyone...

    The oldest human remains were found in Africa. The Bible says we came from a great garden;Africa fits that description. If we are all African,why worry about interracial dating or marriage;we're all kin. Interracial people seem to excel at so many things;just ask President Obama,Tiger Woods,Jimi Hendrix or Beyonce.
    I'm considered Caucasian and I've heard white friends of mine say they would never date outside their race.....and they had "brown" eyes.
