    Think of it like a game of musical chairs. When the music stops, some people are left standing. White men grab the Asian chicks, black men grab the white chicks, and so on, until we see not enough men are grabbing the black women and not enough women desire the Asian men. This is why we see so many Asian men upset about the mixed couples and same too with black women who see black men dating outside their race.

    The obvious solution is for Asian men to start dating Black women, but I don't see that happening anytime soon.

    Theology is idiotic.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    You're welcome to make fun of theology all you like, but it doesn't change the fact that your assertion that "a lot of fundamentalist Christians" are uncomfortable with interracial couples is baseless.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    My family knows that guy.

    My own mom has made comments on genetic diseases only certain races carry like sickle cell, being passed on to children, grandchildren etc. I think she sees it as an issue in terms of having children. She also works in medicine and research, so its her field. Though she outright said she wants whoever I date to treat me well.

    Not sure how she would honestly feel if I told her I was pregnant by a black guy though.

    I have seen girls my age in interracial relationships, and their families don't like it. I have heard them called mud sharks and damaged goods. And let's not forget middle eastern ethnic groups in this discussion. They are a controversial group in many ways in USA.
    I wonder what your Mom thinks about diseases inherited thru White people's genes, like Huntington's chorea?

    Of course it exists. Go look in the mirror.

    Unrepresentative samples of the DP community as a whole. Your exceptions prove the rule.

    Apparently there are more than a few people who are uncomfortable with inter-racial couples, right here on DP. This thread is based upon that very premise, that some posters are incensed that certain tv commercials are "shoving non-traditional families down our throats"... non-traditional means, inter-racial, SSM, and apparently short men with tall women!

    Acceptable?

    Preferable.

    I much prefer 'interracial' couples as that means the world is one step closer to everyone being 'mutts' and this complete and utter nonsense about 'race' can die once and for all.


    It is the height of IDIOCY to actually judge someone by the amount of melanin in their skin (or by some other 'racial' stereotype).

    If you judge people by this...you ARE the poster boy/girl for staggering ignorance on a Mount Everest-scale.

    I would guess a couple hundred years and race will pretty much be a thing of the past.

    like God intended.
    A good example of faith vs. religion and sadly few understand there's a difference. Talking to religious people Jesus said: And so you cancel the word of God in order to hand down your own tradition. Mark 7:13

    Specifically on interracial marriage: Miriam and Aaron began to talk against Moses because of his Cu****e (African) wife, for he had married a Cu****e....The anger of the Lord burned against them, and he left them. Numbers 12.

    Also, too complicated to get into here but the Bible gives really good genealogies in some cases. At least 3 of Jesus' earthly ancestors, possibly more, had interracial marriage making Jesus himself multi-racial.

    One of the greatest points of confusion a lot of people have is they think stupid people claiming to act in accordance with God's will are actually doing so. If you want to understand what God is really saying you're going to need to read the Bible yourself.
    Having opinions all over the map is a good sign of a person capable of autonomous thinking. Felix -2011
