    I'm a white male and I'd only go white or east Asian, the later may prompt a few jokes but I don't think they'd care. As I don't find black girls attractive and would think any Muslim girl was an idiot they are a non issue.

    They couldn't care less. Probably because they're not backwards retards.

    This. If my parents cared more about me "keeping it within the race" than my happiness I'd be embarrassed of them.

    They would prefer me dating someone of the same race but that isn't happening since I only like white girls. They wouldn't mind if I did date outside of my race though but white girls aren't into Oriental guys.
    you're wrong btw

    Honestly my mum defiently cares. for her it's ALL about keeping it in the race and religion. But me myself I have been into guys from many different races except my own race (weird?). But my mum would defienetly disapprove and would do anything for me to end the relationship.

    I'm mixed race, so my family have never had any issues with the races of people I date. It's 2014. It shouldn't matter.

    Some disgusting views expressed on this thread though. SMH

    The question implies my parents first knowing which is where it breaks down for me I'm afraid.

    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)

    Wow, so many people have racist parents.

    Mine wouldn't mind. Personally I wouldn't date any religious person however, but couldn't give less of a **** about their race.

    To think that a person is unattractive due to their colour, you must believe they are inferior in some way. And you subscribe to caste systems. Clear racist.

    You are wrong. Sorry. But yes, colour can play an attraction to things. People are more likely to be attracted to a butterfly than a moth for instance. Lol. You see a lot of threads on TSR saying "English people aren't attracted to asian people" or whatever. That doesn't make them racist at all, it just means they aren't attracted. Its not about being inferior whatsoever. If I am not attracted to person b or c, but I am attracted to person a, does that make me a bad person and does that mean I feel person b or c is inferior? No it doesn't. Some people aren't attracted to english people. Some people aren't attracted to indian people. Some people aren't attracted to chinese people. This is normal. It doesn't make any of those people racist. I know that the person you quoted has said some stupid things too so I can understand why you've made your comment, but nonetheless, be careful to call people a racist on a whim.

    They'd prefer I'm with someone of the same race but are happy with them being of a different if they're doing well career wise and are nice etc

    If it applies to you of course. My dad doesn't give a crap about it but my mum wants me to find a girlfriend of the same race as me yet I prefer to date outside of my race. I watched a documentary of mixed raced couples being a problem in some cultures.
    Why do you think my girlfriend is asian but all my one night stands are with white girls? I am Korean by the way so that says it all

    I'm pretty sure my parents don't care about what race I date. However I know some extended family members do, unfortunately for them I don't care about their opinions
