How many of you would care?

About the ethnic background of your grandchildren? would you love a grandchild any less if he came from a mix background? Would it make any difference to you?
I personally would love my grandchild because it would be flesh from my flesh, and color or race would not matter, how about you?

  • I completely agree. I don't understand people who don't understand mixed relationships. (namely, my entire in-law family). I did not marry interracially, but if the "one" for me happened to be a different race, that doesn't make him any less the "one" for me. Why can't people look past skin color and realize we're all the same?

  • I do not see color or race I see people and that is all. WE ARE ALL THE SAME. I mean if you are dying in the hospital cause you need a heart you are not (hopefully) going to care where it comes from if you get one. You gonna say hey doc' is this heart from someone not white???? So I guess to answer you H-E double hockey stick no!

  • Having mixed children, there's no possibility that my grandchildren won't be mixed in some way. I'm fine with whoever my sons fall in love with regardless of color or gender.

  • I couldn't imagine me ever caring what someone's background is, but when it comes to my kids and grandkids, I would care even less.

  • I would love them no matter what. God says that he created us all equal, some people just tend to forget that.
