    My mum's open to it, whilst my dad would prefer a nice West African man for me.

    My mom wanted to sell me to this Kenyan guy for a bunch of camels. Or maybe she was joking.

    funny that, most indian parents i know would rather have their kids date a muslim, or even a pak, then to date a black guy.

    unless of course that black guy was a doctor

    What is so undesirable about black men?

    My parents have always been quite traditional and preferred I dated someone of my race. They were quite skeptical and not too accepting of my current relationship but really, there's nothing much they can do to change that and I think they know that so they're beginning to slowly accept it. I suppose what really matters is when they see how happy you are and hopefully that will change their views.

    I don't think they care that much. They would probably prefer him to follow the same religion (to make it easier when bringing up children and that )

    Tbh, I know a lot of people will have racist parents, the disappointing part is when it's passed down a generation.

    It's sad but get used to it. Most people are racist, even the ones who preach on about how liberal and tolerant they are. I find it hard to believe this disease will ever come down to a non-worrying level, talkless of being eliminated.

    As a parent I'm totally relaxed on the matter, there are far more important things in life to be concerned about.

    I'm mixed so my parents don't care.
    I don't date black guys though and I'm part black. Just preference.
    Doesn't matter if you're part black, you're still thinking like a racist. To think an entire group of people are not worth your attention merely because of skin colour is racist, 'preference' is not a good enough cover-up. Hitler also 'preferred' a Jewless world. White supremacists and nationalists simply 'prefer' a world without non-whites. If you discriminate in some way based on colour, you're racist. It's that simple.

    LOL it is SO not racist to have preferences. I've been with black and mixed black guys before. They simply don't appeal to me. I can appreciate there are some gorgeous black guys, they just aren't for me.

    I don't really know how my parents would react because practically everyone is my immediate and extended family married Asians,
    But I'm attracted to white guys and Asians anyway so I'm sure they'd be okay with it (well at least I hope so)
