  • It all depends on your environment and how you are raised, if your family is open to new things and all types of people then you'll be used to diverse surroundings but if not then you're only comfortable with what you know

  • Ignorance is sometimes contagious and I personally have had that vaccination!

  • I wonder this too...It doesn't for me. And you put this in Relationships, so I'm going to take a leap of faith and assume that you mean something along the lines of interracial dating, and IMO as long as you treat each other right, go for it. It matters none to me!

    My parents always told me that if I came home with a black man, a Hispanic man, etc...they wouldn't care as long as he treated me right! The second a man didn't treat me right, my dad would've had their ass...and that goes for a white man too! Good thing I married a wonderful man that my parents love!!!

  • I dont understand it either. Its a superior complex some have and honestly I think the little maturity section in the brain did not develop therefore the person becomes immaturely STUPID

  • It shouldn't. Like a PP said ignorance. The color of a person skin doesn't matter, it's what's beneath that matters.

  • Good question. I do not even see color. I see the character and how they treat people. My question: WHy do people care about the sexual orientation of someone? Why do we tell people they can't marry who they love?
