    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

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

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

    Here is the issue, this is dp. I am asking and others are expecting people to come outright and defend that they are uncomfortable with interracial relations. That is asking a lot.

    In real life, I have seen it in a lot of people I respect. The guy playing Santa Claus at my mom's work told her he felt disgusted when another employee put her mixed grandchildren on his lap. He was grossed out by them and called them oreos.

    My family knows that guy.

    My own mom has made comments on genetic diseases only certain races carry like sickle cell, being passed on to children, grandchildren etc. I think she sees it as an issue in terms of having children. She also works in medicine and research, so its her field. Though she outright said she wants whoever I date to treat me well.

    Not sure how she would honestly feel if I told her I was pregnant by a black guy though.

    I have seen girls my age in interracial relationships, and their families don't like it. I have heard them called mud sharks and damaged goods. And let's not forget middle eastern ethnic groups in this discussion. They are a controversial group in many ways in USA.

    My hair is brownish red. I don't hear many people say they prefer those two colors.

    There's nothing wrong with a Middle Eastern woman choosing a white husband over beatings, subjugation, and a looming threat of an honor kill.

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.
    Pics...pics of grolar bears.

    I am married to a person of foreign origin and don't give a flying f*&^ what anyone thinks.

    He is infinitely more educated and dignified than most west of Scotland grolar bears.

    Yeah, I appreciate the humor.

    Why would I lie and make up a story as reason to post a poll? That makes no sense.
    I didn't say you were lying, I don't know what your motive is in posting this poll. So, now you claim it was one poster and yet in the OP attached to the poll you said:

    "I just thought I would ask. It seems some people here are not comfortable with interracial couples, and I was curious how common the attitude is.. "

    So is it one poster or is it "some people here"? If it's one poster, in the basement no less, who's said something obnoxious, why make a big deal of it up here and act as if it's more wide spread?

    Lots of fundamentalist Christians still think this way, even though most of them know better than to open their mouths on it.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
