  • Just as I answered this same question yesterday. My kids had absolutely better date inside their race. If they bring home anything other than another human I am going to be very upset!

  • no, but i don't think that people should date others simply bc of their race either. imo that is the same as not dating someone bc of their race.

  • In my own personal opinion, I wouldnt date outside of my race, but as far as what anyone else does, thats up to them!

  • I must not, because my LP is half Japanese and our children are therefore mixed.

  • I think it's insane that some people still think of it as wrong.

  • Date whoever you want. No need to judge.

  • I agree with AustinsMommyMI. I don't think that finding the one true love, or that special person should be just limited to "your race". Although myself Mine just happens to be my race. I have close family that have mixed, that have adored eachother from day one and are lucky to have found that love. I also have cousins who are gay..... I dont judge on sexual preference or color.

  • I was watching Secret Millionaire and the one woman said her father lived by three rules one of which was "There is only one race, and that is the human race." So, I will live by that. I don't care who my child decides to date, whether it be across gender, racial orreligion lines, as long as he or she loves her and treats her well.

  • Interracial dating FTW!! I am super attracted to guys in general... ha ha that made me sound bad... what I mean is, I don't really have a "type". I would DEFINITELY date someone who isn't white (obviously what I am), and I have. The only guy I've dated since my son's dad is Native and I thought a lot while we were dating about how adorable our kids would be... ha ha.

  • I have absolutely no problem with other races. My husband is Italian and gets the most beautiful tan in the summer. I love darker skin. A colored guy called him a "cracker" at work one day. lol. I laughed every time he told someone about it! I never thought about his race before that. lol.
