    White Grandfather Detained While Walking With Black Granddaughter: Scott Henson Cuffed By Texas Police


    [/FONT][/COLOR][/LEFT]
    well it is Texas, so..
    Police received a call about a black girl being kidnapped by a white man. 2 blocks over they see a black girl and a white man. They should have ignored that??? That is not racial in any way. They fit the description. How dare the police interupt this man for 5 minutes just to try to save a kid's life???

    What I mean are those people who decide to have sex only with someone because they are a member of a different race.

    It is known that African-American men have more interracial relationships than African-American women do. Also, Asian women are targeted as sex objects because of their "exotic" looks.

    Which means that the state of racial affairs in the U.S. may be less of a case of "The Loving Kind" and more about "Jungle Fever."

    So I suppose I do see it as a liberal would - taking into account several realistic factors and trends that are actually occurring.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    You think being attracted to a person of a different ethnicity is racist?

    Yeah, because nobody has ever married anybody out of pure sexual attraction even though they don't have anything else in common.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Well, not necessarily.

    I think it could be considered racist if one of the major reasons why someone is attracted to a person of a different ethnicity is because they are of a different ethnicity.

    Basically, I'm saying that racial fetishes could be considered a form of racism.

    Yeah, and that only happens in interracial marriages. What are you trying so hard to get at?

    I don't know why you said that because I didn't.

    How? Certain ethnicities tend to carry certain characteristics. If a person finds that specific characteristic attractive it does not make them racist. That is absurd.

    WASHINGTON Interracial marriages in the U.S. have climbed to 4.8 million a record 1 in 12 as a steady flow of new Asian and Hispanic immigrants expands the pool of prospective spouses. Blacks are now substantially more likely than before to marry whites.

    A Pew Research Center study, released Thursday, details a diversifying America where interracial unions and the mixed-race children they produce are challenging typical notions of race.

    "The rise in interracial marriage indicates that race relations have improved over the past quarter century," said Daniel Lichter, a sociology professor at Cornell University. "Mixed-race children have blurred America's color line. They often interact with others on either side of the racial divide and frequently serve as brokers between friends and family members of different racial backgrounds," he said. "But America still has a long way to go."

    The figures come from previous censuses as well as the 2008-2010 American Community Survey, which surveys 3 million households annually. The figures for "white" refer to those whites who are not of Hispanic ethnicity. For purposes of defining interracial marriages, Hispanic is counted as a race by many in the demographic field.

    New milestone: 1 in 6 US residents is Hispanic

    This is good news. I don't think of marriage but I am a white guy and what interests me is black girls (ever since one picked me), so I think interratial anything is coming in now in a big way. It's good that we don't get disapproved any more by various dirty looks from our neighbors.
