I think my parents would prefer me to get with an African guy. Well, that's what my dad has vocally expressed a few times. But I'm sure they wouldn't mind too much if the guy was a different race, providing he was decent for me
Not being rude but I'd never ever want to be with a 'freshie' African guy.

Well my parents woud be upset if i dated outside my RACE, i mean beastiality isn't exactly legal. However i'm allowed to date whatever ethnicity i please, considering i'm the product of ethnic mixing, they'd be very hypocritical to say otherwise.

My parents have said they wouldn't want me dating a black guy because our kids wouldn't look like me. They're not racist, and I kinda agree with them. They said if we were black they wouldn't want me dating a white guy for the same reason.
:lolwut:

Do your parents expect kids to be clones or something?

I never have, but I don't think either of my parents would mind at all if I did.
Which is good, because I do have a thing for black guys :P

Only when I try to date Romulans for some reason. Vulcans on the other hand, they like the green-blooded goblins. Who knows eh?!

I don't think they would, not as if I would care though. We got angry with our Uncle though cause he refused to acknowledge his neice (my cousin) and her new baby cause its a mixed race baby she's had with her black partner.
Aww how sad. Sorry but your uncle's a p****. What ever happened to 'blood is thicker than water?'

My mum used to be all "Better not marry a White man! (or Ghanian - she didn't actually say it but it was in her eyes)"

And then she started dating a white guy and is now telling me to marry white men as... (well - she cusses out nigerian dudes. you wouldn't want to hear)

I think the whole Ghanian and Naij beef is silly.

I'm mixed myself, so i dont see them having any issues
The UK is probably the most open minded country when it comes to interracial relationships, i read an article somewhere saying that we have the highest interracial marriage percentage ...if this were America the poll results would be very different

Hmmm my mum is definitely against me dating outside my race (not that I could give ****) though in her social interactions with other races she doesn't seem to be racists. Just during marriage talk she tends to become quite racist. She has this idea that you should marry within your own race to preserve culture or some bull like that.
