Your Thoughts On Interracial Relationships?

Wed Dec 31, 2003 2:00 pm

I'm curious as to how you worldwide types tend to view interracial coupling.





I'm the result of an interracial relationship (my father is White-German Smile/French Pissed and my mother is Black-American); and having grown up in both the DeepSouth, SoCal, and France... I've gotten a pretty good overall view of how it's seen/felt/handled by various people.



Just some general questions:
Would you date/mate with someone of another race but not marry/breed with them? If so, why?

Would you be accepted by your family/peers? If not, is that something that would prevent you from attempting an interracial relationship if it was something that came your way?

Do you think it's amoral/unnatural in any way?


...just curious

Im a young black man, who is dating a white woman. I have absolutely no problems with it seeing as how she is so wonderful, I just get pissed off sometimes when people give us looks out in public and stuff. Not many people do that though, just the ignorant ones. I feel its being more accepted, and am never ashamed for being out with her.

"Would you date/mate with someone of another race but not marry/breed with them? If so, why?"

-date/mate been there done that
-marry/breed: dont plan to yet, race would not play a role in it though

"Would you be accepted by your family/peers? "
-yes, 100% acceptance

"Do you think it's amoral/unnatural in any way?"
- i think thinking it was morally incorrect or unnatural is exactly that, amoral and unnatural

I agree with the the first two post.

I am a Black guy and I have dated women of various races. Race would not be a factor in dating or marrage.
My family would totally be accepting of it too. My oldest sister's husband is White (Dutch).

I really could careless what others thought even if it was family.

Considering I'm 1/4 Black, 1/4 French, 1/4 German and 25% unknown, I'm all for it  Big thumbs up

Seriously, however, growing up in South Carolina it's kind of odd that we're home to a college that only allowed interracial dating 3 years ago, that interracial marriage was only formally legalized under a decade ago and there's still somewhat of a social stigma. In elementary school for instance, I was too white to play with the black kids and too black to play with the white kids. Not something that promotes the positive social growth of a youngster. I'm also going through this now in my current relationship, as my girlfriend's mother is NOT pleased that she's dating me, as dating me might "ruin any chances she has of finding a nice WASP guy to settle down with and *gasp* what WOULD the children look like?"

Yes it's rough, but I believe that interracial relationships are natural. After all, what people are saying now about interracial relationships were said 100 years ago about internationality marriages. Does anyone blink today when someone of German descent marries someone of French descent? Don't think so. Not only that, but speaking of the health of the species on whole, it's healthier as it allows for the widest possible gene pool. Just my $0.02 on the matter.

Since the notion of a "pure" race is utterly specious anyway, any objections to "interracial" dating are purely cultural bias.

Fortunately (at least where I live), these archaic ideas are fading fast.

Who cares? Let's strengthen the gene pool.

That said, my dad didn't like it when I dated a Chinese man, and he made a few snide comments about my husband being Portuguese. He did say flat out that it would have been unacceptable for me to bring home a black man.

If I ever have kids, I will never care what race or ethnicity their sweeties are.

I guess I'm part of an interracial relationship (me being half asian half white european and my wife being full white european) and to be honest I haven't ever really thought about it till now.

No, I don't think that it matters - there will obviously be those people in society who will never agree with it, but their opinion is of no consequence - the only people that matter are those actually in the relationship.
I know a couple who have been together for 35 years now - he is black trinidadian and she is white Australian and they have enjoyed a long and happy marriage and have raised wonderful children.

I think the film "Guess Who's coming to Dinner" sums this issue up quite well.

And on a more shallow note (this user excluded of course) interracial offspring are typically very attractive. I used to date a girl who was half Indonesian and half Lebanese - one hot tamale.

I am 100% pure white boy of European descent (German, Irish, English, Scottish). My girlfriend is Hispanic. I like her personality, the fact shes not a dumbass like a lot of girls I know. In fact shes pretty damn smart plus she has a job making big bucks which is handy since I am still in school.

My family's acceptance. My family loves her. Race is a non issue which I almost found a bit surprising.

Her family: Most of them are OK with me. She has an aunt that's got some issues with me being a white boy, but she's just a bitch so most of the family tunes her out. If it wasn't that it would be something else so Its not of big concern.

As for breeding we are both not too hateful looking and do quite well on all forms of intelligence measuring. So not only would our kids be cute, they would be smart too. So hell yeah I plan to breed with her someday.

It dosen't really matter to me as I usually date guys outside my race. Interracial relationships have both negative aspects and positive aspects, sometimes cultural differences can even tear a relationship apart .

There are some parts of the United States where a white girl dating anything other than a white boy is simply not healthy for the boy.

I have two friends who were "taught a lesson" (including one who had to undergo emergency surgery for a ruptured spleen as a result) for trying to date white girls, so I would urge caution to anyone who considers it.

It's very sad that this issue even arises. And it seems that mostly any two people have the potential to get along, but the problem is with their friends and family - and sometimes this can rub off, or influence the people involved. But it's not just color, of course, it's also religion, as well as nationality. Hey, if this forum spends half its time fighting over Boeing vs Airbus, what hope do poor people in love have??

I am white Caucasian (25% English, 25% French, 25% Spanish and 25% Irish) and my wife is Thai of Chinese origin. To be honest race has never been a concern and we have never encountered overt racism (although we live in London which is the most cosmopolitan city in the UK). If we did receive racist comments it wouldn't bother me. I guess the only thing that has ever happened is the frequent 'oh so funny' "did you buy your wife off the internet?" 'jokes', but that isn't racism it is more a stigma of an uneducated view of Thais. It has got to the stage where my wife just says she's Chinese now.

This is definitely what I'd call a delicate issue. Does it bother me when I see an interracial couple? No, not in the least. Would I date someone of another race? Probably not, unless we got along extremely well. The reason for this? Well, I think Chepos stated it very accurately:

"...sometimes cultural differences can even tear a relationship apart."

Except I'd substitute the word "sometimes" with the word "often." Marriages within homogeneous cultures are difficult enough, it seems, without the added tension of disparate culture.

If someone wants to attempt an interracial relationship, I say "more power to them." However, I do not believe that I will undertake such a task.

My thought is, "Who cares?" I think far too many people concern themselves about other people's business rather than focus on their own. This goes for a variety of subjects including but not limited to - interracial relationships, same sex marriage, pornography, personal use of drugs within the confines of your own home, drinking, etc . . .

This country was founded on the principle of the rights of the individual and every day we get farther and farther away from those principles. What business is it of anyone else who you date, who you f**k, or what you do on your computer as long as you're not hurting anyone else.

Now if you're asking the question because you're having doubts about your relationship, then you've got bigger (underlying) problems rather than the race issue.

Just my thoughts.

All that matters is the views of the two people "dating." Yes, you have to be aware that some areas are not as "tolerant" as others, but as long as two people want to be together, they should be.

I have nothing against interracial marriage...

personally I see something unique and special in each ethnicity, and would there for love to have sex and even beyond with all races and religions...

So I'm as open as can be...Only thing I do demand from any ethnicity/religion is that they are good human beings, that's it, any color, look or nationality is only an extra spice to the meal  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Would you be accepted by your family/peers?
A: em well yes I don't think I would run into any problems...Only if they disapproved his personality, again not race related...

Do you think it's amoral/unnatural in any way?
A: in short: NO!!

Adolph Hitler wrote about race mixing and compared it to a Lion mating with a tiger?????
Em no Adolphowitz that would be like a Siberian Tiger mating with a bengal tiger...

NO BIGGIE!!!

Where am I from? Denmark! I am currently in Israel tho visiting my family here...But still they feel the same way here in Israel...

Being from New York it isn't a big deal although I can see it may be in other parts of the country.
I have no problem with it, I'm white, I've dated a Filipina, a Black woman and was engaged to and lived with for many years a Puerto Rican woman, if my family cared they never mentioned it to me and I wouldn't care anyway.
Hell, maybe it should be encouraged, if were all mixed then we can't have any racial ethnic fighting, (if only!)

Immoral? hell no! As zak said, it's immoral to think its immoral.

Would I have kids? If I wanted to procreate, yes, they'd likely be smarter and better looking than average. There is a biological principle called hybrid vigor which says that mixed breeds are usually longer lived and healthier than so-called purebreds. You can see it with dogs. Mutts are almost always smarter and healthier not to mention longer lived then breeds. I have two dogs, both rescues. I love them both, but my Cocker Spaniel is no rocket scientist. The other dog who is a mutt is a doggie genius. This is not the first time I've noticed this.
Mixed race people in my experience are usually better looking and smarter than average.

There are some parts of the United States where a white girl dating anything other than a white boy is simply not healthy for the boy.

Not just the boy.

In Baton Rouge, we had a beautiful young white girl murdered by her own father for refusing to abort the fetus (for a black man) that she was carrying. At his sentencing, he stated he had no regrets about preventing a n!gger child from entering his family.

Why did this not make national headlines a-la Lacy Peterson? Because, though an event such as this is not an everday thing, it's not exactly a rarity either.  Sad

Having been raised in the south, the older members of my family especially the grandparents aren't used to the idea of interracial dating. My parents however, are becoming more progressive, which is a good sign. I think TV shows, MTV, etc., that show gays straights blacks whites mixing together has had a positive effect on society, especially the younger crowed.

For me I've dated:

An East Indian Girl: Absolutely Beautiful girl!
Lebanese Girl
Asian girl

And now, that I'm gay: (well, always been gay, but since I came out...)
I've only dated white guys, but wouldn't be opposed to other races.

Your business is your business. Who am I to butt in and tell you that you can't date someone. I will admit, however, that I sort of feel awkward when I see a couple of mixed race in public. From my perspective, it just looks a little odd. Growing up here in Dallas, I don't come across that many mixed couples, and there are no mixed couples in my family. I have grown up very sheltered, so next year, when I am in college, I'll probably grow accustomed to seeing mixed couples.

Spic-Wop-Jap Sounds like this restaurant I've seen near Jamaica station in Queens!  Big grin

-Would you date/mate with someone of another race but not marry/breed with them? no, that is a waste.
-Do you think it's amoral/unnatural in any way? no

-Would you be accepted by your family/peers? If not, is that something that would prevent you from attempting an interracial relationship if it was something that came your way?

Well.....

My descent is Haitian, French, German, Lebanese, Cuban and Scottish. So first off, if I were against intermarriage/dating, I'd be against my own heritage!  Big grin

I am engaged to a white (and I mean WHITE! Lord help her when she tries gets too much sun, goes from KKK white sheet to lobster red in minutes!) American gal of Russian descent.

My parents adore her and have no problems. I honestly though my mom would be more despondent about religion since Mom practices religion to a T.

Her folks, on the other hand, are working on the race and religion issue. Her mom is more accepting as the date looms closer.

But her dad still has some way to go, still threatening not to attend the wedding b/c I am not Jewish nor white. Oh well.

Yet, he still likes me. Go figure.





My view: I am living the interracial relationship (and historically always have) as well as the interreligion.

When I see other mixed couples, I love it. And usually the kids come out looking BEAUTIFUL.

Look at Mariah Carey (in the pre-let-me-show-more-flesh-to-sell-more-records days) as well as Lenny Kravitz. (a decent looking guy when you peer past the glasses and jewelry.)

I'm from Indian descent with my last roots (parents, grandparents) in Suriname, but never had a relationship with a girl from the same descent. I'm totally into interracial relationships. It's totally accepted by my family (Nowadays, my family is a cocktail of all kinds of races; Dutch, Chinese, Indonesian etc.) and no matter how my future will be if it comes to love and relationships. I'm still proud of my roots

I was born in Lebanon and consider myself Lebanese. However, I'm Armenian. Actually 3/4 Armenian and 1/4 Greek.

In the past I have dated American girls, one with Irish/German and the other with Norwegian origins.
I also have dated an English, Russian and of course Lebanese Arabs.
I can't really tell if any of the above is considered interracial, since they are all considered white and all have been Christians. Still though I haven't had any problems with any.

The family has expressed concerns at times but I say it's mainly due to the fear of the unknown and nothing else.

As mentioned, people should take into consideration the cultural differences. Other than that, I see no problem.

Would you date/mate with someone of another race but not marry/breed with them? If so, why?

I've only dated outside of my race and I have no objections to marrying someone who's of a different race.

Would you be accepted by your family/peers? If not, is that something that would prevent you from attempting an interracial relationship if it was something that came your way?

Yeah, no one ever said anything or acted funny when they met girlfriends I had. My first girlfriend (a WASP) and I went to Hong Kong (my home) a couple of years ago and she got to meet a lot of relatives, who all liked her, including my great grandmother who's over 100 years old. She was asking me when we were going to get married.

The family members who usually object are of an older generation who were probably taught that interracial dating is wrong, so I was very impressed by my great grandmother's reaction.

Do you think it's amoral/unnatural in any way?

No, of course not.

With that being said, right now I'd really like to date a fellow Hong Konger or at least someone Asian. I feel it might make some cultural things a little easier and I'm also at a point where I'm worried about being fetishsized, ie someone's Chinese boyfriend instead of just their boyfriend. Also, I sometimes get tired of explaining the same cultural things to each new girlfriend.

You know there was a time when, Irish/English and German/Dutch would have been considered interacial also.

Frankly it is all pink on the inside.

Who cares..............the colour of a persons skin doesn't matter. If you truly find someone you care about.............hopefully it is not because of the colour of their skin.
People who have problems with Interracial Relations -- obviously have more problems than they are aware of.

I do not have any problem about other's interracial relationships, and I do not consider myself as a racist in any point because I do not even know which my race is; I do know that I come from Spanish people but too many generations ago; my skin is white but I do not have blonde hair or blue/green eyes. Well the thing is that I do not see myself living with a black, chinese, indian, european, arab or north american person, I repeat I do not have nothing against them and I do not consider myself as racist, just I would not like sleeping in the same bed with a member of any of those races.

If you are deeply in love, then that's all that matters.
As the divorce rate in the U.S. is somewhere around 40-50%, I'd say that anyone who can look past the skin color of another to see the person inside, have a pretty good grasp of their situation.

"I can only assume you do not sleep with anything human."

I'm sorry to hear you say that, I can tell you that I sleep with a great person that I am in love with. I do not consider myself as a member of any specific race, I do not believe in a race that some use to call "latin-american" as we are a mix of european, black, native indian and a lot of combiantions in between; however keep my word, I think I will never be with a member of any of those races; fortunately I live in a very close city where 95% of the people is like me so I do not have to see, work, talk, or have any contact with any black, indian, european, north american or chinese person.

Still, trust me, I am not racist, I do not consider myself superior to any other race, I just try to avoid them.
