Do you let your children play with children of another color?

Im just asking cuz my son best friend is biracial but looks all black and despite where i live and the fact that this is 2009(you wouldnt think it would be a huge deal in this big city) I constatnly get wierd looks when they play together.. really though i could care less what people think he is happy and they love playing together and he is also my bffs son... im just wondering if any one actaully limits who their kids play with beacuse of this?

  • I let my son play with any child that he wants to, as long as they are good children. If they are trouble makers then he doesn't play with them, no matter what color they are. I don't limit his friends becasue of their skin color. He even had a "girlfriend" in Kindergarten and 1st grade that was black.

  • I don't care. Although where we live there aren't any black kids her age that I know of. As long as they aren't doing something they aren't supposed to be doing, she can play with whoever she wants.

  • The only kids I don't let mine play with are kids that are mean. They have friends of all sorts. Most are Hispanic since we are a minority in the neighborhood (my son is 1 of 2 non-Hispanic kids in his class and the only one that only speaks English, all the other kids are bilingual).
