    Impressive. In a thread about race, you still managed to be the one to play the race card.

    I don't know if there are green people out there or not, but there really are blue-skinned people. There are some in Kentucky.

    It's a condition that has been around for a long time, but is apparently recessive so it has mostly died out. Just not everywhere.

    It's also possible to develop environmentally from long-term exposure to high doses of silver compounds, such as some homeopathic remedies. I've actually considered doing this to myself as a form of body modification.

    I did not click on the link but It reminds me of how your skin can turn grey and such from taking colloidal silver.

    The article states that interracial marriage has been downgraded to simply being unusual - in whose eyes? I've never found it unusual, personally. Also, if we're talking about ethnicity, then practically all marriages are "interracial" unless you and your partner have done purity testing with genetics to make sure you're of similar ancestry.

    One of my good friends is a white South African, and he has 15% African DNA. He married a white woman, and their child is darker than both of them. Skin colour is such an illusion and it doesn't demonstrate anything. Two white people or two black people could have very different recent ancestry.

    Not at all. Like gay marriage, interacial marriage is just a veriation on the theme. Interacial marriage, however, tend to divorce more than intraracial marriage. That's not saying interacial marriage should be avoided, is wrong/immoral, etc, only that there is a uniqu dynamic which should be adressed to give the marriage the best chances of survival.

    When it's true interracial marriages are divorced more often than same-race marriages, my first guess is that this is due to racism within the respective families and environments of one or both sides. Say a black guy and a white girl marry, but her parents have racist tendencies and let her daughter and her husband know they don't really approve of their marriage. Or their friends. Or vice versa.

    I guess any marriage the families and/or friends of one or both sides don't approve of are more likely to be divorced on the long run. And in case of mixed race, racism becomes an increasing factor for lack of approval.
    I gave a real example, which I've personally seen a dozen times, which had nothing at all to do with racism.

    Sometimes the traditions and norms of different cultures don't jive well.

    To reiterate the example, a white and a native: The white person was brought up where you get married and move into your own home with your spouse.

    The native person was brought up where your new spouse moves into the big family home, or you bring family into your new home.

    No one is doing anything wrong here, this is just a difference which needs to be addressed before hand; which is part of why I support legally requiring pre-marital counseling.
