    not liking it is different dont you think?

    also on the other end of your story I am also biracial as you already know and grew up during that same time even younger, i had no identity problems at all

    again not saying your mom was wrong because it was just an opinion but it was a very narrow view of reality because I could probably list 100 things that would have a similar effect on a child.
    Given the culture and social norms of the time, it was totally correct to say that a biracial child would face challenges growing up. Today, that is much less true in most of the country at least than it was years ago.

    and, no doubt one of the reasons is that people were brave enough to challenge social norms and engage in interracial marriage when it was not considered the right thing to do.

    I agree they COULD have but it most certainly wasnt a given as I did not but you are right people were brave to do it, including my parents.

    I dont think the risk of challenges were any more than a kid that was bad at sports, not so smart, extra smart, had subjectively ugly parents or nerdy, raised by a gram etc etc.

    Never asked to be honest. Considering she treated me like her son and never said or did anything to make me think anything else, So I doubt it.

    No. I don't like the idea of gays getting married, but you know this. I support it only because we are a secular government, and equal treatment under the law is to important. Plus I have way to many friends who are gay. How could I not support them?

    Not my mom, my best friends mom.

    So could I, but that's not my point.

    The point is ignorant ****s making pathetic blanket statements about everyone in a group.

    1.) it didnt matter if she was or not the point was they are clearly different. Not liking something and wanting it banned is quite different.

    2.) thats good you support equal rights regardless of your personal feelings thats what all americans should do and many fail to. But again I meant not liking something is different that wanting it banned.

    3.) Yes, im pretty sure this as come up before

    4.) yeah sorry I messed that up

    5.) it is the point to what I was saying, its really a non issue, its fine to think it but in reality its not really a big deal

    6.) the way it is worded I dont think there is anything wrong with it, now I suppose there could be some exception but IMO anybody that wants to ban interracial marriage is in fact a bigot and or racist. just my opinion

    of course I have no problem with people just no t liking it or being against it for them selves but thats different than wanting it banned
