It's wrong to date and have children with other races
It depends on the race
Interracial couples and children are completely acceptable to me
I have mixed feelings
I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.
Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
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.
"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?
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
