    Re: Are interracial couples acceptable?[ W: 330]

    I've only ever pondered interracial couples from an ethnographic point of view. I've studied a lot about the different ethnicities of the world and how they came to be from a geneological perspective, over vast lengths of time. The modern era is really amazing because ethnicities are converging and diverging in ways that are historically unprecedented.

    On an individual level, if two people are into one another then who cares about acceptability?

    Beyond racism, I think there is also the traditional notion of in-tact lineages that has stuck around since the nobility days. Most of the world's wealthy families still forbid their children to marry outside of their race and noble class. I used to know a guy in New York whose parents were cousins, and their parents were cousins. They were from Jordan and their families still believed in pure bloodlines. He ended up getting disowned because he refused to continue the incestuous tradition.

    So while we are talking about interracial marriage, what about marriage across class? Is it acceptable for a rich person of "noble" background to marry a poor person?

    How bland would that be?
    This may have been the idea behind the "cultural melting pot" of USA. How did it work till now?

    I wonder who the two raci...er...people were who voted 'it's wrong' are?

    On the plus side, over 91% voted the right way...which is encouraging.

    Here we go with this statistics stuff again. You can't make any negative educated guess about white women who marry black men based on that data. What the data shows is that 12.5 percent of the married couples where the husband is black and the wife is white ARE BOTH COLLEGE EDUCATED. There is nothing that shows what percentage of the MARRIED COUPLES where the husband is black and the wife is white that has a WIFE THAT IS COLLEGE EDUCATED. There could be a high percentage of married black white interracial couples in the which the wife is white that have a wife who is college educated but a husband who is not college educated. We have absolutely no way of knowing what that percentage is from that data.

    Over and above that, it only shows information for MARRIED COUPLES. Many interracial couples don't get married.

    You people don't examine data carefully.

    While that may be true, that data doesn't show that. Why? Because there is no information on blacks who marry hispanics, neither any information on blacks who marry asians.

    The next thing is why have you only presented data on white people marrying other races in the first place?

    Again. you people don't examine data carefully.

    If you are going to use statistics, look at them carefully.

    Why does the chocolate have to melt into the cream? Why can't the chocolate be mixed with the cream?

    Until the chocolate is of the same consistency as the cream....they cannot be mixed.

    A liquid simply spills messily onto a solid.

    There is a such thing as white chocolate you know that can be solid. Why not melt them both and then mix?

    But no, the chocolate has to melt, always keeping black folks down!

    BTW, I'm just kidding.

    I'm fine with inter-racial couples. I just don't understand how they had to change the definition of traditional marriage in order to force their unions in our face. Call their relationships whatever you like, just don't call it marriage.... ;-)
