    The white guy/black girl combo is about the only thing that draws stares anymore. Not because of disapproval, but because it's just rare, especially from a marriage standpoint. You don't see that often.

    Basically, I'm saying that racial fetishes could be considered a form of racism.
    How can it be racism? The skin is an essential element in a sexual relationship. The color of it may be part of its beauty. And that is absolutely not a fetish.

    False.

    You mean people caught in a battlefield? There goes your dishonesty again.

    where people who "look like Arabs" have been beaten and murdered (they were in fact not Arabs)...
    So have people of every skin color. It's a problem when you have a society with hundreds of ethnicities living under the roof. Want me to find links of Spaniards beating down blacks and Arabs?

    the list goes on.
    When you make weak arguments, it sure can.

    "Arabs" and blacks are treated just as everyone else in Spain if they are here legally.
    Sure they are:

    Racism, what racism? asks Spain | World news | guardian.co.uk

    t was a display of puerile stadium antagonism that rapidly generated accusations of the r-word, involving a group of fans, a black sporting hero and some unappealing antics that were quickly denounced as racist.

    But while Britain has fumed at the treatment of Lewis Hamilton earlier this week in Barcelona, where fans "blacked up" and goaded the formula one driver with ugly slogans, the Spanish response has mixed bemusement with outright denial.

    The Brazil defender is not the first player is the latest in a long line of players to highlight racism in Spain with former Barca forward Samuel Eto'o having spoken out about the racist chanting he received while in the country.

    Alves delivers the startling revelation that he is constantly insulted and called a 'monkey', and admits that while his family are very troubled by the treatment he receives, he has learned to ignore it.

    Sa quotes a survey on opinions of the number of immigrants from NeoBandam:

    Last month Alicia Sánchez-Camacho, the leader of the People's Party in Catalonia, called for stricter limits on immigration and said the topic will play a leading part of her campaign for elections in Catalonia later this year.

    And last month the town hall in Vic, 45 miles north of Barcelona, sparked outrage by attempting to ban illegal immigrants from the municipal register.
    Seriously Pete, quit being dishonest.

    Why would people even keep track of interracial marriage statistics?

    I'm pretty sure sociological studies are done on just about every trend there is. If one were curious whether, say, conservative taboos from fifty years ago were slowly but surely dying away, this study would help to support that.

    Edit: and to build on that, can you imagine how awesome it would be to historians and anthropologists if we'd had every sociological study from every civilization in history? Our perception of ourselves with regards to the past would probably turn upside down.

    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.
    Legally requiring pre-marital counseling? Good Luck With That! Has about as much of a shot of happening as pre-parent classes.

    Honestly legal pre-marital counseling is a little too Big Brother for me and not to mention it would be a waste of money. Are our tax dollars gonna pay for this BS? I would rather my tax dollars go towards stuff that matter.

    I don't think it is totally racist to only wish to date someone inside your own race or whatever the hell that is called. But it is biased in the same way that some folks will only date certain folks based on body weight, height, hair color, eye color, etc. I think cases of dating kind of blur the lines in reguards to what is racism and ageism. I think a lot of times in some cases that preferences is used to hide racism but a lot of times it is what it is. You cannot make a humanbeing be attracted to something/someone they are not attracted to.

    It is RACIST if you think that other people should not date outside their own race.

    To study humans and race relations and the such. If someone is keep track of it then it is like a bar in how far we have come in reguards to racism. That is my guess. I dunno. lol
