    so, if your kids/grandkids came home with a partner of another race, you wouldn't have a problem with it?

    Anecdotally, being from Michigan, I've seen a number of these relationships. Damn near all involved a trailer-trash "baby mama" and a man that's essentially done nothing with his life except dodging cops (often unsuccessfully). The reverse has always involved a successful black woman with another successful white man.

    For every German supermodel and Grammy-winning artist, there are a thousand white trash sluts with deadbeat, wannabe thugs.

    But hey - doesn't bother me. I've never met a white woman that prefers black men that I consider a real loss to my dating pool.

    Unleash, people. I'm ready.
    Unleash what? You already admitted they were stereotypes.

    Hey, I support honesty. Besides, internet morality polls are bunk. I remember a thread quite a while back that asked what you would do if you found a wallet in a public place with a big wad of cash in it. The overwhelming majority said that they would track down the owner and give it back to him with every dollar intact.

    It confirms how easy it is to lie on the internet.

    Stereotypes are stereotypes for a reason though. Some people don't deserve the benefit of obvious doubt, and it's on them to demonstrate being the exception and not the rule.

    Ya, some people treat Internet forums like high school and feel peer pressure to say what they think is expected.

    I don't think people owe anyone any explanation on their relationships. If you want to see a stereotype, that's on you. It's not really what this thread is about, though. Stereotypes in relationships transcend racial issues. Old guy/younger chick. Attractive chick/ugly dood. Young guy/older chick.

    Everybody? Hmmmm. I was never taught such a thing. There is nothing in the Bible saying it is wrong to date or marry a person of a different race.
    There are a few incidental mentions of race in the Bible (that Ethiopian's skin was different, Jeremiah 13:23), but there is nothing saying one race is superior to another. Moses was married to a Cush ite (Ethiopian) woman (Numbers 12:1-16), and God was angry with Aaron and Miriam for criticizing that marriage.
    The only thing that seems to be a theme throughout the Bible is to avoid being yoked to an unbeliever.

    Most people are more comfortable with their own kind. That is the case in the animal kingdom as well . But take bears for example, you have a white polar bear that has been known to mate with a black grizzly. The result, grolar bears.
