Interracial Relationships: Your Thoughts?

It's been a few years since I last brought this up.... the Nebraska thread got me thinking about it again.



As the result of an interracial relationship, I'm often incredulous as to people's attitude toward this subject.

Though Im black as a muthaf^cker, and can easily "pass" for a full-blooded example of one race over the other... I continue to take pride in my mixed heritage, and wouldn't think twice of interacting in a relationship with one of a differing ethnic background.



Interracial dating and interracial relationships are viewed as a positive step towards smoother race relations by some; as "sellout" behavior and a denial of racial heritage by others. What's uncontested however, is that interracial relationships are on the rise. The 2000 census shows that as of 1995; Black males married outside of their race at a 171% increase since 1980, White females marrying interracially increased 124%, and White males with a 96% increase.






So what say you:

  • Would you get with whomever makes you happy?

  • Do you prefer to remain romantically-involved within the confines of your own race?

  • Do you feel it's okay to date, but not marry/bear children, outside of your race?

  • Anyone here date interracially exclusively?

  • ...and lastly, anyone feel that interracial dating is wrong, not only for you, but for society?
    If so, speak up, I'd like insight into your perspective. And (I know that me saying this is totally pot calling kettle, but) I'd appreciate it if people do not attack anyone who says thus, but rather just hear them out.

    Why the hell not?

    3 Facts that make this "Interracial" thing a bunch of BS
    *There is more genetic differentiation between members of the same race than members of two different races.
    *The average white person has 2% black ancestry.
    *The average black person has 17% white ancestry.

    Quoting ConcordeBoy (Thread starter):
    Would you get with whomever makes you happy?

    absolutely. I don't care about people's skin color. I have been with black men in the past. I applaud interracial couples because it isn't easy. For some reason society frowns up such a thing and it is absolutely ridiculous. Ultimately, I think that what is inside a person is what matters and not the color of their skin. If they can make me happy, then I'll all for it. I am not seeing a black person now but I am "talking" with a darker complexion mexican guy ( I am somewhat tanned but without it I am really white). I have heard some comments but I don't care because things are going good so far and he's a good guy. So, I am all for interracial dating.

    I'm sure you are more interested in the people against it and hearing what they have to say...

    Nope. Being mixed as well means I know how wonderful that can be. I never limit myself. Besides, I like blondes too much Big grin.

    No, I feel it is ok to marry, have children with and/or date anyone you damn well please. In fact, if you are in love with someone to the point that you would commit to them for the rest of your life and have children, it is a downright disservice to you, them and society to not be with them. It matters not where they are from or what color they are.

    Nope

    No, I think it is right if you are attracted to and have feelings for the other person. It is, in fact, good for society because it allows that much more genetic diversity and makes the human race stronger.

    You are SUCH an agent provocateur!!!!




    Honestly I have gotten jealous over some of the blonde BABES I have seen with some black men, but I eventually come to my senses and realize how ugly I am 'even being white' and I get over it. While I might be jealous it's more of a 'damn I wish I was hitting that myself' thing then look at that BLACK guy with a BLONDE girl thing.

    Something I have always wondered.. MOST interracial couples (yes I have seen lots of OTHER variations) I have noticed are Blonde girls and black guys. Given the Vain Nature of most Blonde chicks I have known this makes a LOT of sense as a match to me, but I was wondering if anyone else shared this observation or had any other ideas...

    ANOTHER thing I have to say is if ANYONE is STUPID enough to say God didn't mean for the races to mix or other such NONSENSE, you are an IDIOT!!!

    If race mixing is "wrong" why can I get a Black/Hispanic/Asian/whatever chick pregnant and why can men of those races impregnate whoever they wanted to as well?

    Animal sex is wrong that's why Humans don't have puppies...

    Interracial sex is alright!!!  checkmark

    What's the obsession with blondes? Noticed it in two posts already.

    I've personally rarely found them physically alluring, but perhaps it's more to do with the fact that anyone with $20 and a blowdryer can be one. Help me understand.

    Well, part of it is we want to see if they are a natural blonde, if you know what I mean Freddie  bigthumbsup

    I think it is an opposites attract thing. I mean, there are a lot of guys who are obsessed with East Asian girls or exotic Latin/Sub-Continental looking girls. A lot of the ones into the tanned, dark haired type girls are lighter white dudes. A lot of black men are into East Asian girls. You know what I look like, and for those who don't, I have tan skin, dark eyes and dark hair. I look just like my Iranian father. A lot of guys like me like blondes. I have always had a thing for them. Then again, I think this girl is the most beautiful in the world:

    Absolutely, it should be a crime not to be with whoever makes you happy - as long as that person is a consenting adult, or of the same age range if you yourself are not an adult.

    Quoting ConcordeBoy (Thread starter):

    Irrelevant, it is about the person, not about the race.

    Quoting ConcordeBoy (Thread starter):

    It's ok to date, marry, and have children.

    Quoting ConcordeBoy (Thread starter):

    Nope - but have in the past - so not exclusive either way.

    Quoting ConcordeBoy (Thread starter):
    ...and lastly, anyone feel that interracial dating is wrong, not only for you, but for society?

    No - now question for you....

    As an interracial child, did you have any problems fitting in? Because some people argue (though IMO even if this is true it is society's problem not the couple's problem or the child's problem) that mixed children have a harder time, I am just wondering if there is any truth to that.

    BTW: I am sure there is truth to it, let me clarify my question though. I would assume, due to the prejudices that people have, it is tough - but some people (mostly bigoted people) argue that is a reason not to introduce mixed children into society - is their argument as ridiculous as it sounds? I am sure it can be tough growing up mixed, so I am not trying to minimize that situation, that's what I wanted to clarify.

    Very few women dye the lower (no idea about men, don't have your experience) from my experience. Often, they will just shave it.

    Well, since I've never ~not~ been mixed, I really don't have sufficient scientific control as to make that call.

    That technical BS aside, I'm inclined to agree with the argumentative "some" that you mentioned, to an extent. Some identity crises, some problems fitting in:
  • My eldest sister can/does "pass" for white, and rarely has anything to do with Blacks or the black side of our family
  • My two elder sisters and myself lived in an all-white neighborhood, went to an all-white church, a virtually all-white school (17 out of 940 students identified as non-Caucasian), and basically could go weeks without interracting with any Black besides our mother and housekeepers (keep in mind that New Orleans is by far a predominantly-Black city)
    Our parents have since rectified this with our younger sisters.
  • One of my mother's brothers still has not "forgiven" her for marrying a white man, some 26yrs after the fact.
  • etc

  • That said, I also believe that I've been given insight and perspective that one raised within a single race environment (with little interaction elsewhere) might not.... and that's invaluable. A "mixed" blessing  Smile But a blessing nonetheless

    Color doesn't mean jack. We all eat, breathe, sleep, put our pants on, bleed red, get cavities, fart, suffer acne, wear glasses, make friends, make enemies and plug along no matter what color we are. The fact that all people have feelings and bleed the same color of blood is what escapes those who continually adhere to anti-interracial sentiments.

    Well, there's one thing I do share in common with Freddy and that's being biracial, in case some of you didn't know/hadn't guess by now. In terms of my skin tone, I can pass off for lots of things, but neither really "white" or really "black." For me it was a bit harder growing up, especially since I was raised by, and adopted by, my maternal grandparents. To start off with, my early childhood was pretty solitary in that I was "too white" for the black kids around me and "too black" to fit in with the white kids. When I got to middle school though, I fell into a multiracial crowd who didn't care what ethnic background I was.

    My problem cam ewith my last ex. Her mother did NOT approve of us dating based on the grounds that it was "immoral" and 'unholy." Mind you she was a Republican Southern Baptist. After we broke up, her hypocrisy was revealed in full to me when she set her daughter up with another guy...a half Australian/half-Pakistani medical student. Hmm...I wonder why....

    At any rate, to answer the questions posed...

    Would you get with whomever makes you happy? Heck yes.

    Do you prefer to remain romantically-involved within the confines of your own race? Err...gee, I'm trapped in a corner. No matter WHOM I get involved with, it's interracial.

    Do you feel it's okay to date, but not marry/bear children, outside of your race? No, I don't.

    Anyone here date interracially exclusively? Again, see above. ALL dating I do, by its very nature, is interracial.

    86 Post contains images Falcon84 : Hell, there's very many "pure" races anymore, with maybe the exception being cultures in Asia. "Bastardizing" humanity is a poor choice of words, as

    99 Boeing Nut : It shouldn't matter what sex, color, or whatever you are. If two people support, care for each other, love each other, etc, it doesn't matter what sex
    100 ConcordeBoy : ...would you feel the same way if it was three? Just curious.

    104 Leviticus : Let us say that your theory is correct, and that I am both frightened and base my judgments upon hysteria. As we both know those are two bad things,

    109 Post contains images Allstarflyer : This is (almost ) my first serious disagreement with ANCFlyer in quite a while. Not having a Harley is fine, Kawasaki's are fine - but can I imagine
    110 MSYtristar : Yeah that was obviously a typo on my part. Replace "sex" with "race" and you'll get my intended statement.
