  • Not as strongly as some of my fellow Texans...
  • I think, regardless, we are all people. Not just a color. And you can't help who you love. It's unconditional.
  • 1) I like different people. Unfortunately the world is full of prejudices. 2) Read the protocol of the Wansee conference to learn what those nazi monsters planed to do with person married with Jews. I just watched a movie about this, it was shuttering. Here the protocol of the Wansee conference: http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Wannsee_Protocol Other information about the conference: http://www.holocaust-history.org/short-essays/wannsee.shtml http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wannsee_Conference Information about the movie: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conspiracy_(film)
  • I do not feel about them any differently than any other couples . They are just people like any others
  • I have no problem with it at all. I actually admire people with strong enough conviction and love so that they couldn't care less about wrong conventions and defy prejudice and archaic ideas about ethnicity.
  • I am part of an interacial couple, as I am white (Irish/Italian) and my girl is Black (Haitian.) When we're in NY, no problems. In florida, we got looks.
  • I am not against it at all. It seems like at least in the midwest society is moving on.
  • I don't think that word should exist i think that they are couples just like any other and theres no reason to feel different about them i find the term racist.
  • Should not be allowed.
  • Why should I care if they're interracial? It is not the outside, but the inside of a person who makes them who they are. And if they love eachother, why should I care. Same thing with homosexuals. If they truly love eachother, I shouldn't think their love toward one another is wrong.
  • What is there to think? If they are nice people, I might enjoy their company. Their race(s) is/are irrelevant.
  • I don't have a problem with them at all. But, if you are thinking about being in one then you need to be prepared for people who don't think it's a good idea.
  • I'm not totally clear about what race is in the first place...so ther term "interracial" doesn't click with me. If I'm part Cherokee, part Irish, part German...what race does that make me? And why should I really care?
  • there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. If two people love each other then thats all that matters
  • One of the cool things about living in California is that interracial couples are not out of the ordinary. They're unremarkable, so most people don't stare or act disapproving. My niece has been married 27 years to an Af-Am who has quite dark skin. They live in Minnesota, and actually they don't get any flak there either. They're active in the community, and their kids will marry whoever their kids decide to marry. Twenty-seven years ago, my niece's marriage was SORT OF unusual, but at the time I wrote her a letter saying pretty much the kind of supportive things people have said in the answers to this questions. Change in the direction of acceptance was already in the cards that long ago. My nephew-in-law is a great guy. They've been happy.
  • i don't care, everyone is pink on the inside
  • im gunna be completely honest because i think that alot of people on here are afraid of hurting feelings.. I'm not racist against any one group of people i just dont think that people should date outside their own race... i think it is wrong.. it doesnt matter what race.. i just dont think it is the way things are supposed to be
  • It's all good!
  • No one even notices interracial couples in my high school. Almost half the couples there are interracial, mostly black guys with white girls, I've only seen about three white guys with black girls. I started dating my black boyfriend at the begining of my junior year. A few couples are pregnant, mostly the interracial couples, myself included. I became pregnat at the end of last school year. I'm five months along now. I've yet to hear any negative comments about my situation. I plan on attending school as long as I'm able.
  • honestly..it's a non-issue for me...
  • What business is it of mine?
  • I think people are entitled to love who they choose regardless of what others may think or feel about it if two people of different races are mature enough in their feelings for each other and can handle all the ignorant stares and looks and comments from people who don't understand their attraction to each other then they have the makings of a wonderful relationship My sweetheart was hispanic and I am white we ignored all the ignorant comments andf stares because we loved each other and actually we got more ignorant stares and comments because she was 26 and I was 41 than because of our race differences
  • I have often said that if we want to eliminate racism, then we should encourage interracial marriages until we have completely eliminated all racial distinctions. (Of course, those personality traits that now blame racial differences for all of life's problems would then just find something else to blame like short people or whom ever.) So, those that are in interracial couples are just doing their part to help eliminate racism.
  • Who cares as long as they treat each other with respect and dignity.America is the Melting Pot.
  • My white wife dated African American men almost exclusively before we met and were married. I never had a problem with this knowledge. Since we had our baby girl 3 months ago, I've tried to imagine my reaction if she brought home an African American boyfriend one day, and to be honest, I know I would be fine in front of her, but honestly don't know how I would feel. I hope I would be happy for her, and just thankful she found someone to love her. Time will tell, I guess.
  • I am just happy that when it comes to race I am colorblind. I do draw the line with those green outerspace chicks - thats just not happening LOL
  • If the couple is happy, I really don't care one way or the other.
  • How do you feel about butter on toast? Jelly on toast? It is no ones business but your own.
  • I think it's good, there would be less racism.
  • Well im going to break up the line here and say i disagree.it's hard on the children of these couples.the simplest question on a job application and they don't have an answer for it.white? black? asian? they don't know what they are.i have a sister with a mixed child and she goes through hell every day coping with do's and dont's.thou shall not become unequally yolked. so sayeth the lord. i am but one man and im not racist but until they atleast put "human being" on the job applications we will always be classified in races as long as we know what that race is.
  • It's not a problem for me.
  • I don't feel that there is anything wrong with it. What right do people have in judging anyone for having a life partner or spouse that is not of the same race as the other person. We are human beings, with feelings.
  • as long as both of them are happy, as long as they treat eachother with respect, if they have a solid relationship that is good with me. It really isn't any of my business, i have no say on who is supposed to love who. Love isn't rasist, love isn't a color, a gender, a person, love is who we love in our hearts.
  • Love is Love, why would it matter?
  • There fine in my book.
  • There aren't any races. It is all in your mind.
  • personally I would not be involved in one but, for those who are - it's not my business..whatever floats your boat.
  • Firstly, the concept of race is social, not biological. Isolations of some populations for extended periods led to differentiations in physical attributes of the humans, as different populations adapted to their environments. As for the social concept of race, I really don't care. I think its a stupid, false construct we use to avoid knowing ourselves by clinging to a group identity. Date whomever you want. I do. I'm in what you would term an "interracial" relationship. You will not see a single question from me as to how others feel about it, or anything remotely similar. Why? Frankly, because I don't care. What others think of it is irrelevant. I'm not sure why people continue to make their personal relationships the business of others to comment on or judge.
  • I'm all for any couple :) Interracial, gay, lesbian etc.
  • I feel the same way about them as I would feel about any other couple. They are no different to me. Relationships are about the people and their feelings - not about the heritage and their skin color.
  • They've got guts.
  • I am in Oklahoma and few people look at us funny. We rarely get any funny looks. I am a nurse and our community has accepted us for who we are. He is black male and I am white female. I feel we make good looking couple.
  • LOVE WHO YOU WANT !! do not pass up on something that could be great cause of what others think !!
  • I think it's cool!
  • fine with me, I have been 1/2 of one more than once
  • i doesnt bother me one bit. Besides they usually make beautiful babies...
  • Writing as an African-American male who has dated Caucasian women and African-American women, I think race (or ethnicity) is less important than culture and background. (I realize that I'm not defining culture or background. Use you best judgment.) Culture and background tend to intersect along racial lines, hence,some people (not me) might say, it is easier for individuals date other individuals who come from the same background and from a similar culture. I think you can throw all of these things "out of the window" when looking at culture and background in comparison to socioeconomic status (if I were defining background, socioeconomic status might be one of the factors I would list in "background.") Anecdotally speaking, I have found that I have related more with certain women who come from the same socioeconomic class level regardless of their ethnicity (or race). Two factors that must be considered are (1) how your nuclear family feels and (2) Your attitude regarding society's "view" (I understand that this "view" might be different depending on which region of the country you're in.) I think the first factor the most important factor. I guess, in my own personal opinion, I would conclude that in a society like ours where cultures tend to assimilate into "pop" culture, it really does not matter what your race/ethnicity is so long as the two of you can find some way to connect and be happy together.

  • I feel as though it was bound to happen due to this country's history and History does repeat. I'm happy for those that are strong enough to do whatever it takes to be in a relationship that's so heavily monitored by all. Let people do their own thing and choose who they want to be with without commentary.
  • I am a nineteen year old, caucasian, female. I am currently in college, and come from a very wealthy, background. My parents always told me that no matter who I was dating, it would not matter the color of the man's skin. I always felt that my father was somewhat against interracial relationships, but he never spoke of it. I began dating around age sixteen, and by eighteen I began a relationship with an African-American male. He treated me better than any guy I had ever dated, and I didn't see him for his color. We were best friends before we even considered a relationship. I didn't bring it up to my parents, because I figured it wouldn't be an issue, and when they found out (6 months into our relationship) the flipped. I got called every hurtful name they could think of. They told him we were not allowed to speak for 6 months. It was the worst 6 months of my life. they still say we are not allowed to talk, but we do. We are very much in love, and have been together for well over a year now. My parents still try to control everything, even though I no longer live with them, but things are getting better. I never dreamed I would be in an interracial relationship, but people are people, and everyone needs to let go of their stereotypes!
  • salt and pepper my favorite spices.
  • What I feel? I see no issue with it at all. I'm all for it.
  • I'm a product of one. My dad is white and my mom is Korean.
  • it makes me happy, and i smile cuz it gives me hope
  • If two people are in love, then I think it's wonderful.
  • i was raised during the race riots of the 1960s. i saw Martin Luther King's speeches. i was blood brothers as kids with a boy of a different race. my best friend in high school was of a different race. now, a couple of my colleagues are of different races. now, as a dad, i hate to admit this, but, i start looking at things statistically. if she starts dating a high school boy on probation, i'd be not too happy with her choice. if he's doing drugs, no! if not, yes! if she starts dating a boy finishing college, i'd most likely be quite happy. it's not the color, it's what's inside. and, if the inside is good, then i'm happy. if the inside isn't good, as an overprotective dad, i'd worry.
  • It's perfectly fine.
  • my opinion is if ur happy the color of you skin shouldnt matter..
  • hey they're all humans right? just different in color that doesn't keep them away from each other
  • I have a black and white striped shirt. It doesn't look too bad...
  • My opinions is it's none of my business.
  • Of course it is.
  • to go where?
  • No. Why would there be? I think we have progressed beyond the need for that kind of bigotry and ignorance. If you want to date someone of another race and you are free to make your own choices, no one can tell you it is wrong.
  • Is it right? LOL, I guess it would depend on who you ask. I don't really have an opinion on it. Love just happens.
  • go with? do you mean have sex with? Marry? Of course it is. (sorry. I left out some words in my haste to answer). There is nothing wrong with intermarriage of different cultures and ethnic backgrounds. If there was, I certainly would not be here, nor would my children.
  • i am not racist, i honestly dont see the problem with it. We are all human and SHOULD all have the same rights. If you love someone you are'nt going to give a damn what their skin colour is. you love them for their personality and charm. 3 of my best friends are 'black' but that really doesnt matter, they are the nicest, most generous people i have ever met, and i would not change a thing about them. my question is why are people against 'black' people, they have hearts, souls and they do have feelings and do fall in love.
  • Nope. To each his own.
  • Its wonderful and for your information in 50 years - 50% of American population would be mixed. lol
  • i love to see interracial couples, especially if both people are hot b/c they'll make exotic looking babies. i'd like to be in one someday! its like an opposites attract kinda thing b/c its unexpected but it still works! :)
  • the same way I feel about non interracial couples. Dont care.
  • I would be a hypocrite to think less of them. I'm in an interracial relationship right now. I don't think of it like that, though. I love him for who he is, not for the colour of his skin or what languages he knows or where he's from or what kind of traditions he grew up with or what kind of attitude his parents have or what kind of food he eats at home. When it all comes down to it, my love for him goes beyond the surface. I'm attracted to his mind and his heart and his soul. I'm attracted to his character. I'm attracted to his personality. I'm attracted to the things he does that he CAN change about himself, not the things he can't do anything about. However, I consider them bonuses because he just happens to be very handsome and he happens to have a nice skin colour and great body type. :]
  • Hi I am a non white chick and I am dating a white guy I am happy to be with him our race doesnt even come up in coversation I dont see him as anything other than the man that I adore!!! Why should I care what colour he is??? He doesnt either!!! and we are from a country where ppl were persecuted because of their skin colour!!! I think if you dont date outside your own race thats fine too!!! But for me I enjoy loving and being loved by this man so thats just my opinion!!!
  • We are an interracial couple I'm white and my s/o is Asian : )
  • Me and my boyfriend have been together for almost five months. It's been a hard fight for us. We've been fighting our families and friends. My boyfriend recently told me that some people around our school talk bad about us and threaten us because we are an interracial relationship. He's African American, I am Caucasian. We're deeply in love and despite what everyone tells us, we keep moving on and just ignore them. My grandfather has threatened to kick me out of the house for being with him. But you just have to be strong, don't give in, and follow your heart. That's what I did. That's what my boyfriend did. Indeed, it is hard but if you truly love that person then you shouldn't let other people's opinions affect you. My boyfriend and I have never been happier. We continue to get stronger each and everyday.
  • I don't seperate them from the rest of the couples - a race doesn't matter when you are in love!
