    That would hate it.

    It's probably an extra incentive tbh.

    Already a product of inter-racial relationship, Eurasian here. English and south east Asian.

    I'll date whoever really, seen this tall Black woman who was beautiful! But I would prefer to date someone from Europe or from Asia themselves (Chinese, Japanese, Thai etc), leaning towards the Asian side. I'm open to dating an African if I really like her, that Danai Guierra from Walking Dead is hot!

    Even better if the girl was Blasian.

    Is she an ex-Muslim too?
    I'm not sure how she defines herself exactly, but she does lean toward Atheism.

    My parents want me to marry a Hindu (I'm a Hindu myself). Also, unless you're a Hindu, you may not know that Hindus are also sub-divided into different types, and I'm a 'Lohana', so my parents would like me to marry a Lohana boy. I want to marry a Lohana too - so it's a win win!

    My parents would prefer me to marry Ethiopian or at least a East-African. Also they have to be Muslim. But I could not give a flying ****. I marry who I am attracted to. I do not care about race at all. I go to multicultural school with all type of races and religions. Thank god for that because intolerant people are so stupid. Begin a liberal Muslim my view is not so popular among Muslim, so it would properly make a marriage with a Muslim guy hard, if he has strict views. But yeah I could have relationship with any religion or race as long as they have liberal views and as long they are not closed minded.

    My parents would prefer a Hindu girl, preferably Gujarati and of the same caste. They would prefer anyone over Muslims though.

    I, on the other hand, would prefer an atheist, preferably Indian. Not sure how likely I would be to find one though

    My parents also want me to marry an Hindu from a good caste (I'm from Singapore) my parents told me that I can only marry within my own race.

    I don't really mind because I'm only attracted to girls of my own race but the condition are really hard....

    She has to be :
    1- From a good caste
    2- Rich
    3-Virgin
    4- Pur blood Tamil
    5-Well educated

    It's going to be hard lol

    I don't think my parents would care if i dated someone of a different race. My mum probably would't be too keen if i dated someone who followed a drastically different Religion from us though (even though most of the guys I've liked have not followed the same religion :rolleyes: )

    I think they'd be surprised but not particularly bothered by it.

    My parents don't mind, the vast majority of my family is mixed anyway. My Father would mind if he was Muslim though.

    They might be a bit awkward at first, but as long as I'm happy they're happy

    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

    Please talk to Mr.Smurf. He seems to be of the idea that oriental guys can't get white girls, when it's him with the problem.

    On topic, no my parents wouldn't care at all, as long as the guy is nice and respectful. I know long term they'd probably prefer me to get with a black guy, but race isn't an issue to them at all.

    This may sound weird or whatever but I have no idea my dad's never really spoke about it, neither has his parents. I'd like to know personally

    But my parents don't mind who I go out with

    But for race I'm fully white.

    To summarise the thread, racism is rampant among TSR members and if you're black and Muslim at the same time your chances of finding a partner are very slim. Interesting...
