    He's actually not wrong. I've heard about this kind of stuff before.

    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.

    It won't matter. People will still find ways to discriminate against one another. Too fat, too thin (wait, no, there's no such thing!), too poor, too short, too Muslim, too Communist.... It won't ever end.

    95%. .. ...not bad, only one poisoned individual....
    I think this is far better than the same poll from 50 years ago.....we are progressing...probably a lot faster than most on this orb..

    What are 'races'? American English is a bit baffling.

    The veracity of scientific research is not determined by whether or not you happen to personally like its conclusions. If you want to dispute the study's findings, you need to provide evidence to support the assertion that its methogology was in some way fundamentally flawed.

    The burden of proof here is on you. No one else.
    You don't know much about scientific research or statistics because what you have put forward again is rubbish. If you don't understand the nature of scientific research then you should be quiet. It's not about liking the conclusion, it's about how you arrive at the conclusion. Since you don't know how the women were chosen, for all you know they may have gone out and picked the ugliest black women they could find. Even in the more concrete, hard sciences, there has been so much research that has turned out to be fraudulent because people have devised or tampered with the conditions under which they purported to conduct the research. In this case, you appear to simply want to believe that the research is true. Although I have my doubts, I would be willing to accept results where it could be demonstrated that were based on objective criteria. But in the case of attractiveness, that is something that will be very hard, because it tends to vary from person to person. Therefore, I really wonder how you can come up with OBJECTIVE criteria for such a thing. As a good example, I like women that have big butts. But some people don't think that's attractive at all. And even at that, I'm not so sure that those people are really telling the true. So that's the type of thing that you run into.

    Last of all, what you have posted demonstrates your great ignorance with regards to scientific research. The burden of proof is not on me, it's on the researcher to demonstrate that they have conducted the research under objective conditions, with reasonable assumptions, and have results that can be replicated.

    I have mixed feelings about it, for reasons you probably don't understand. So please put me on your ignore list.

    Consenting adults should be able to marry other consenting adults without explanation to anyone.
