maybe i am old fashioned, but i do not approve of dating outside of your race. friends, fine. but more than that, not so much. just for me. i want to explain this to my ds, but i don't want to send racist signals. i am not racist and do not approve of racism. i just believe in preserving your heritage. our family is a traditional southern family and we are well known in our community as one of the oldest families here. my ds has taken an interest in a sweet black girl. she is a doll, and i don't mind them being friends, but i would not be too happy to see them dating. ds is twelve and this situation has never really come up until now. i understand that my values may not be popular, but each family has it's own values. if anyone here with similar values has any advice on this matter, i would be very thankful.

I personally try to discourage my own children dating outside of their race because of the differences in culture. I do not believe that it is racist. Marriages are hard enough with out having different cultural ideals in the mix.
