  • It is not the color, but th actions or people that call for negative reactions.

  • Not always true.. A very good friend of mine is very dark African American. She is with a white man and the baby they had together is whiter than me with curly blonde hair :) I told her I bet people think she is babysitting when she out with her DD..

    As for your question, in some areas it is still looked down on but in other areas it is the norm:) I personally don't care what color you date or anyone else. What is important is how you are treated KWIM..

  • I do not. God made all people. There is no "better race".

  • My ex was totally against this and it drove me nuts. Because color gender race none of that matters it's when you fall in love that matters

  • Unfortunately yes. For me i do not. I myself am Hispanic & my husband is White all three of my kiddos don't look a bit Hispanic.

  • This is what my best friend is going through. Unfortunately, the only people that view it in a negative light are her father and stepmother. Her mother isn't thrilled but is at least tolerant. They also just had a baby together. Her dad was not thrilled to say the least.

  • I will never understand why this is a issue. Why is it even called interracial dating?! It's just skin color! Two people together from the human race... in LOVE! i don't know who came up with this divide (race). I know a couple of White people from South Africa who can't make sense of why they're not considered African-American. They're from Africa too, so it makes sense. Nope, they've been told to check the Caucasian option and nothing more.

    To answer your question, yes some people do still have those views, but that's their problem. Those views may never go away, but honestly, I don't give a fuck. Excuse my language.
