Racist?

I have 6 kids, and my husband and I are white as can be. I made the comment at a mother's group that I find biracial babies adorable, and I would love it if my children married people of different ethnicities. Melting pot stuff, you know. Anyway, a lady there told a friend of mine that my comment was racist and rude. Um....what? I'm a racist and a jackass, and I didn't know it.

How is that racist? It would be racist if you said "Ewwww! My white as the driven snow babies better not touch anyone who isn't also just as white!"

Right?

I'm second-guessing myself now though. Like, maybe she thinks that I think the only good thing about other races is their looks? I don't know.

I'm all for loving who you want...maybe they took it as you don't find monoracial kids adorable? Which makes no sense...but women arent always sensible lol.

I know what you mean. I've been told that I can't say anything about Black kid's hair or eyes. Weird.
