Would you be upset if your child married/dated outside their race?

What would you do? Why would you be upset? Why not?

  • Not at all. As long as they treat them well, work hard & are moral, upstanding people, I don't care what race they are.

  • No. There is only one race. The human race.

  • We all want for our children to be happy, so race, ethnic background etc, is not an issue with me, anyone who makes them smile and be happy is ok in my book.

  • No, I'm not a bigot so I don't worry about those

  • No, I base more on character not skin color.

  • my children's race is human, and I'm assuming they will stick to that.

  • Heck no. . . race doesn't mean anything. . .it is just the color of your skin not who you are. We all bleed the same so who cares what color your skin is? I married a Native American and that is "outside" my race. . . I would be happy for her if she was happy.

  • Not at all as the posters before said, as long as they are treated well and happy.

    Answer by maggiebella25 at 10:21 AM on Jul. 26, 2010

  • As long as they are treated with love, respect, and dignity... The ONLY issue I could ever foresee is a clash of cultural practices in which women were treated subserviently. In which case, I would see my child being used as a doormat, and would most definitely NOT tolerate it- that, however, can not be based on skin color, but on ethical and moral codes.

  • Don't see how race should play a factor in whom we marry since Christ was crucified on the behalf of all men...
