    I'm interested to see what the distribution of responses is regarding dating outside your race. I don't see not dating outside of one's race to be racist (for me it's about having a similar background which is why I personally just date people similar to me) but I'm interested in seeing where people stand on this issue.

    It's not that I dislike black or Asian people I just don't tend to find them attractive, or at least not as attractive as white girls.

    :shock: and there are people that think it's exclusively our (Hindu) problem lol.

    In any case, I thought as Sikhs, you were supposed to have completely rejected Jāti (caste) hence the surnames Kaur and Singh?
    Doesn't stop some people from believing in it lol

    The issue isn't race it's beliefs and culture issues.

    You're more likely to resemble your parents if you're the same colour js

    My parents are from different race. I look exactly like my father. It's possible even if one parent is 'different'

    I would since I have a strong preference for white girls. But white girls never go for Oriental guys. :sad:

    I have physical traits (blond hair, blue eyes) that are pretty much exclusive to the white race and even then they are in the minority. If I had children with a woman of a different race those traits would likely be lost.

    Yes but certain disadvantageous traits are also pretty much exclusive to the white race - cystic fibrosis being the prime example. Inbreeding is bad.
