  • Yes...if they have a preference for a certain race, then who cares? We're all people.

  • I wouldn't care, alls that matters is happiness which is hard enough to find without throwing race into it!

  • I care about the character of the other person and the love they have for my child. All else is secondary. Their are bad and good of ALL races out there, so to me, each person should be judged on their merits!

  • Pretty much everyone has at LEAST two races in them now a days...not everyone, but most. And considering my daughter's father is a different race than I am it would be wrong for me to tell her she couldnt date someone because of race lol. I dont think it matters, as long as she is happy.

  • color does not matter. What matters is their integrity and my child's happiness and well being.

  • No, I don't care about race, but to be honest I wouldn't want to see one of my daughters in a relationship with someone who's culture condoned honor killings, or saw females as less then males. I would be okay with someone from that or those cultures that have been modernized and would treat my daughter right. I hope that doesn't make me a racist.

  • I don't care who they date, as long as they're loved and treated with respect, but my husband and Dad would FREAK. It's one of those things we've agreed to disagree on, and don't discuss.

  • I don't have a problem at all if my child/children dated outside of their race. I think that it's an old fashioned and ignorant belief to get angry about who your child dates. If they are old enough to choose, then let them. People are people. ANYONE is capable of anything regardless of race.
