    Yeah my eyes don't seem to make sense compared to my parents, they have pretty 'big' round eyes but mine for some reason turned out like this.

    You said you were mixed, what's your combination?

    You're not a bad person for saying you're not into non-Caucasians, it's down to preference. However the bit that got my attention was forcing your children to pick you or their partner. That's not fair and puts the child in such a dilemma. That bit is wrong but in my opinion.

    We're not inherently racist. Racism/ preference to your own race is most likely due to you being conditioned by the people and the environment you were brought up in.

    I know that parents wants their children to marry someone of their own race but disowning your children if they do just shows that you are being racist. Frankly, I think your children would be better off without you.

    Okay I have to add one thing because it's really annoying me.

    All this I want my kids to look like me... Well here's something to consider: many 'mono'-racial children end up not looking like one or both of their parents.

    But it's only a crime, apparently one worthy of disowning, when mixed race children don't look like the parents for some reason.

    OP said he respects all races, it just prefers to have his kids look like em. In what way is that racist?
    I'll admit forbidding your future daughter to date outside her race is OC (out of control) but it isn't racist.

    Uh yes it is. Forbidding your daughter to date outside her race, is racist in every sense of the word. Pretty much saying other races are inferior.

    I don't see racial preferences for dating as being racist so your OP seems unrelated to the title question.


    I mainly like whites and east asian men. Though I'm not repulsed by darker skinned folks.

    Not necessarily inferior, just different.

    generalising a whole group of people and deciding based off that generalisation that you won't date them is a bit racist
