    29 years in Michigan doesn't get undone by 6 years in Alabama. Down here, interracial relationships aren't really all that common - at least not compared to up there. In addition, down here there is actually a good chunk of black women wanting white boyfriends/husbands. Looking at the men down here, I can't figure out why...but ah well.

    People aren't openly critical of mixed race couples, but acceptance is generally with a nagging feeling that trouble is probably on the way.

    It's fashionable on these sorts of threads where the Liberals all try to top each other's declarations of tolerance "Damn, I didn't even know people were different colors!" to pretend as if mixed race marriages are even more stable than non-mixed races, but they're not. If a particular identifiable culture does not have a history of marital stability, the societal pressures of a mixed marriage are going to increase those divorces exponentially.

    It's always disappointing to be in a store and see a mother with a couple mixed race babies and no wedding ring or man in sight. It would be much better if those contemplating mixed race marriage would give much more thought to the future well being of any children.

    Obama seems to be doing okay on it.....but there again, I wouldn't know if he were race, mixed race, 50 per cent race. ..who with a brain cares?

    People are quite able to forge an identity independently of heritage. I know of a good number of people who have.

    Heritage and tradition is far from important in discovering who you are.

    My brother is white and his wife is from Jamaica. The kids are interracial and quite well socialized. I see them on Facebook all the time with a tin if friends all interacting quite normally.

    I honestly don't think the dangers of a lack of heritage are all that real

    But they are usually accepted into African-American culture easier than other cultures. I think this is due to the history of Blacks. During slavery there were many mixed race babies born to slave women. These women usually loved and raised all thier children the same.

    If any American politician won 80% of the vote, it would be considered a landslide, the second coming, a mandate.

    20% doesn't qualify as "lots" in my book.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

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

    Oké, then. Different definitions of "lots" it is.
