    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.
    It also isn't just about race. It's about culture. Mixed children are often excluded from both heritages. They lack an identity. You're spitting in the face of traditionalism in every aspect.

    I had no doubt that such a whackadoodle aversion exists, cloaked in Biblical verses. Cepheus said "lots." That's what I object to.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

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

    Too bad the poll is anonymous.

    And of course! Mixed race couples have never been special to me like some people, it's love and commitment all the same, I was raised to think beyond skin color. It's normal for me. Sadly, there are people that don't feel the same way in this country (and it's not just white people), but they are heading to be a rarity.

    Yes, because if every human became of mixed 'race' then there would be no more cultures.

    Again...

    Bye bye now...I don't like to waste time on nonsense like this.

    Do you honestly believe that most cultures view children with 50% lineage on the same way as full-blooded members of their heritage? You think a mixed child will be as easily accepted at most dinner tables?

    You can't afford to be this naive.

    Why won't they be accepted at most dinner tables?

    Now if it's the KKK, it might be a problem. But who wants to be around such jerks anyway? Not me for sure.

    It depends on how you define "lots". According to the graph on this page from a Pew Center survey, close to 20% of white evangelicals, 10% of white Catholics and about 15% of white mainline (I'm guessing this means Protestant?) Christians think interracial marriage is bad for society. That's not just a couple yahoos here and there.

    Yeah, well, aren't you in Alabama? Only saying that what passes for common sense around your parts isn't representative of anything I've experienced anywhere I've been.

    ROFL...yeah, it's just whites. That must get a good laugh at the Panther rally.

    Blacks, Asians, Latinos...they're not at all like that. It's whites. Good one, "G".
