  • I'm not concerned about race! I just want my children to marry honest, respectful and responsible adults-doesn't matter what race they are.

  • Personally I never liked any guys outside of my race so I would probably not be too happy about it. My family (cousin and sister) have married and had kids outside our race and no one was too happy. I guess I'd have to wait and see if it happened to mine how I'd handle it.

  • i believe that who u fall in love with is a personal decision. i will support and love my child/children if i have have anymore no matter what decisions they make in life including who they choose to date and what race that person is. thats what being a good parent is about i could care less if a person is black white or orange with pink polka dots if they respect my daughter and treat her right when shes old enough to date shes only 1 now so yeah datings a long while away but when she gets there. its her decsions. jmo

  • I really couldn't care less!

  • I would feel that if my daughter is old enough to get married, then she is old enough to make her own decisions. I just want my daughter to be happy, I don't care what the man will look like as long as he can do that.

  • Seeing how I have a stepson, I don't care. If I had a daughter or stepdaughter I'd be concerned if she married a native arab man - simply because of their view on women (see or read "Not Without my Daughter" )- but then, that would also be an issue of marrying outside of our religious beliefs, which would concern me greatly for either gender.

  • i would be fine with it but my husband is very racist and he would have a serious problem with that so unless this person was perfect in every other way then daddy would say H#LL NO!!!
