    Lemme guess you're a UKIP voter. You sound, and clearly are, a white supremacist.
    Being a UKIP voter does not equate to being a white supremacist/racist :facepalm:

    I guess it's a combination of both. My parents are Hindu Indian and they don't believe in romantic love. They think it's something vile & disgusting that should be discouraged and only "bad" and "immature" young people claim to be in love.

    It doesn't stop me from getting into relationships though. I just have to be discreet about it!


    Your patents are against dating as well?
    Sorta. They believe in old fashioned dating. Haha. So technically I do too. They expect to meet the boy first and for us to double date a few times. Do you know how hard it is to find guys like that?! It's a matter of conservative Christian beliefs and just some of the culture around here.

    My parents don't care about the race of the guy, just as long as he has a good character & is Muslim.

    They may mind but tbh, it shouldn't really matter.

    It's your own choice at the end of the day

    I'm not sure. My dad is the sort to make racist comments but I'm not sure if he does it in a jokey way or not, or whether he would have a problem if I dated outside my race.

    If they did have a problem I would just ignore them because it's not up to them who I go out with. But it's unlikely that I'd date outside my race anyway.

    Do White people realise there will be no White's left because you're too busy having mixed race babies?Do you understand what the multicultural MELTING pot is and who created it? Why White countries are being flooded with mass-immigration that's destroying and replacing the White population? For anyone who says love is all that matters, think about the statistics of interracial dating and it's genocidal effect. All you see is White women with half black babies, but rarely ever a father. Why do you think that is? Get some self respect and stop killing your own people. One true love is a load of crap, you may fall in love with someone out your race but you'll end up single with a mixed race baby like the rest of them.
    This kind of moronic backward so called "thinking" should appall anyone with half a brain cell. How has this got a rep?

    I'm Mexican, I always have been independent so I don't have problems dating a girl of another race and my parents too. My last girlfriend was from china unfortunately her parents prefer a Chinese boy and she felt the pressure of her parents about me, principally her dad, so we broke for that reason.

    I think my mum would probably mind if I dated outside of my race and class (well maybe not if they were same race but wealthier I guess...). She's kinda weirdly socialist in some aspects but with odd bits and bobs of prejudice from her parents and i suppose what was acceptable to say when she was growing up. I don't generally find people who aren't the same race as me attractive though, which makes me think there's definitely a social expectations side to dating and attraction at a pretty deep level.

    I'm English-Italian, and the only race i'm prohibited from dating is the Irish, but purely because my papa can't handle the accent.

    I am Hindu , my parents don't mind religion but they told me that I can only marry within my own race. Fortunately I am not into interacial , I am currently dating a Christian Tamil girl from the same caste and town as my parents ,I am planning to convert to marry her ( we have many converts in our familly.

    Many Indian parents feel that the worst thing that a daughter can do on this earth is marrying a an outcaste. (yes there is racism, ignorance, xenophobia, and of course good old ethnic pride).

    I knew a girl, that was dating a white guy.A few years later, her parents visited her in Louisiana and learnt that she was with a white guy and realized that she was either married or in a serious relationship. They felt ashamed and disgraced beyond anything I can imagine.

    Her parents then came back to India, but not to their home. They moved somewhere else, without coming back to the neighborhood, or facing anyone they knew in the neighborhood. They sold their house through a proxy and moved away. Don't know what happened after that. The same parents also disowned their son for marrying outside their caste. There were very conservative and proud of their caste.

    Many Indian parents feel that the worst thing that a daughter can do on this earth is marrying an untouchabe. (yes there is racism, ignorance, xenophobia, and of course good old ethnic pride).

    My sister fell in love with an white guy in high school. I snitche her to my parents, and actually made her switch schools. Then sent her to India to have an arrange marriage, know she is happily married to an Indian guy .
    Ok, I'm Indian too (punjabi) but my parents aren't that extreme tbh. None of us give a **** about the caste system- it's defo a bigger thing in rural india than in England for example- and they don't really care about religion either.

    There are 3 certain races within which I can't get married into, (which I won't list for obvious reasons), and yeah there is the general expectation that I will go for another Indian, but Indians are way more liberal these days in general.

    Having said that, likelihood is I would probs go for an Indian guy, just cuz he would understand my background, and so me, better. **** ethnic pride.

    My parents are still, and will always be, my parents, as I will always be their baby girl. Ultimately they just want me to be happy and safe.

    Please do, since I'm literally bored

    Do you have an example of a celebrity (or famous people) that have the same mixture as you have?
