Are you for or against interracial relationships and why?
I think, when it comes to relationships, what someone else chooses to do is none of my business. I'm neither for nor against any type of relationship between two (or three, or however many) consenting adults, because what someone else chooses to do is their choice, not mine.
Well put. My basis for asking this is bc my whole life this topic has been relevant to me. In my younger years it was a struggle because it felt as tho people were afraid to be with me in public. Now, even in my mid 20's it still feels that way. Personally I don't care as much as "he" does. I mean, in public or anywhere. In fact I feel proud. I guess my real question is whether or not a person would date outside of their own, not so much as whether or not they care if others do.
I would date or marry who I love and focus on building love and trust with that person so that we could guard against ignorance and teach and promote tolerance. No matter who you are, some people are going to be hateful. Love is more important.
Most of the women I've dated in my adult life were from different races. My first wife was a different race. I've always lived my life on my own terms. The color of someone's skin is the least important thing I'd concern myself with.
Thanks for the clarification Crystal. Answer: Yes, my loving gf is from the other side of the globe. Though we have different backgrounds, our ideals are consistent, and this is what matters to me. You should continue to disregard what others think.
Thank you all for your answers. Although I do not care much for what others think, I still like to know that there are like minded individuals. There are still some ppl who believe that they are even better than others bc they are not a minority
I think people have the right to make their own decisions, but, if the relationship is expected to be permanent, they need to take into account how being interracial will affect their children. Will they be accepted in their culture, by their own extended family, other children? Or will they spend their lives as outcasts?
I don't really give a hoot one way or the other. As a wise man once said, "You can f*** buffalo for all I care, just don't make me watch."
When I come to the U.S., I visit places on the West and East Coast where people wouldn't even understand the question. Inter-racial couples have been around so long that nobody notices.
Children as outcasts? The new thing in SoCal is brown skin!
I do understand that just being a black American in the heartland is like living in hell.
Why should anyone care about who someone else dates or loves? Life is a (personal) journey.
In the past I've dated women from a variety of races.
It's a non issue. Personality, humor, & values are more important.
A Porsche Carrera GT in any color is still a Porsche Carrera GT.
How is this even a question? We are all humans. The idea of race is a social construct that exists simply because of geographically dictated trends in our evolution and humanity's incessant habit to draw arbitrary lines. For the most part, we are all able to reproduce with one another. By definition, this means we are all part of the same species. If you have a problem with interracial couples, it says a lot more about you than it does any two lovebirds.
You should probably read my latest post regarding this.. I have a valid reason for making this, it's completely relevant to me.
I couldn't find the hub you're referring to, but would love to read it. I agree that it is a valid question, I just think it's ludicrious we are still having the discussion. You should be proud of who you are and who you choose to spend your life.
Luke I don't believe she wrote a hub but rather an (answer) below your answer to her own question which is the next answer posted below your answer by Crystal. It begins with "Well put. My basis for asking this....etc"
Got it. Thanks Scorpio, I will respond in the comments of the answer in question.

Can you really have a relationship with someone you don't trust.You can love them and want your relationship to work but if you don't trust them can it? Do you give it time and hope for the best?
