Multiracial and Biracial Children

    How do you feel and describe children or people of 2 or more races?

    Personally, I wish that I had two or more heritages/cultures. I would not have to worry about being stereotyped or discriminated as I am with a single race (I am a black male). I can learn, experience, and enjoy different music, food, and others more often. Also, I may connect more with people in general.

      I do want my kids to be biracial or multiracial so that they can understand and experience what it is like being white, black, etc.

        Marriage/childbearing is supposed to be about love, not about selective breeding.
        I find it distasteful that anyone would suggest marriage for the deliberate sake of breeding a particular race or mixture of races.  Sounds more like how animals are bred.

          It's not like they specifically said they're not having kids with someone of the same race in order to have biracial kids. They're simply expressing interest in HAVING biracial kids other than children of a single race. Sort of how someone might want a blue car, but would be completely fine with a red car, no problems at all. Everyone has preferences.

    I'm a mixed kid (black and greek) and let me tell you, growing up was not all that easy. There was still a ton of racism (i wasn't allowed to go to a class mates birthday party because i was half black, as said by the kid themself) and a good portion of the greek side of my family pretty much thought i was a horrible mistake. Overall though, I'm happy being mixed... definitely a lot more good than bad, and it gives me a chance to be cultured more, and I can also crack jokes that otherwise, other people might not be able to get away with wink
