When you see interracial couples, & their children, what FIRST comes to your mind if anything? adult content

Simply curious. Not here for an arguementative discussion.. but since it was only 43 yrs ago that it was illegal, its still fresh in peoples minds.

Do you think of anything if you have any thoughts?

I am caucasion, married to an african american, i have one caucasion daughter, two biracial daughters, & one on the way! We gets lots of looks,mostly nice, but they are double takes, so im just curious what goes through everyones minds?

  • Honestly, nothing. As long as the people take care of their children, who cares?

    However, 20 years ago, my sociology teacher asked me if I would ever marry an african american. I said yes, if I was in love with him. He then asked me if I would have children with him. I said "No, I'd adopt." He said "Which race? White or African American" I said "Neither, I'd adopt Asian, really mess with people's minds". He laughed.

  • Whenever I see kids anywhere, it just makes me smile. It doesn't really matter to me what color or nationality they are. They are all cute!

  • Well, I'm multi-racial. By chance, my children (who are bi-racial and adopted) look much like me. My husband, now deceased, was caucasian. I can't say that I really notice race much. Why would I? Usually I notice the same things about children ... if they're well-behaved, if they're clean and cared for - those sorts of things.

  • I usually think that their children are beautiful. Most interracial children that I'VE seen are physically gorgeous.
