Why do you feel it necessary to mention something irrelevant like race....

Personally, I don't think it's irrelevant. Our backgrounds help play a part in defining our identities (to a certain extent)

Race is hardly irrelevant only ignorant people believe this, race can be the deciding factor in many circumstances and racisim exists believe it or not. And from personal experiences its played apart in our relationship. It sucks but thats reality.

Is this actually even a thing anymore? Congrats and all that you found someone, but tbh its not exactly groundbreaking for an interacial couple to exist. Stop living in the past

How do you think your child will deal with being pulled in two different directions culturally, with not having a clear racial identity, with appealing to members of neither of the parents' races?

Sure he will. But how? And how happily? And how successfully?

I think you're the one living in the dream world, the 1960s emailed saying they want their story back :erm:


Sorry but when pretty much everyone on this site has grown up with interracial communities as a normal thriving thing, the idea that a mix raced baby is even worth making a thread over is actually quite embarrassingly out of touch.

Here, take a look at what the 'average American' will look like in 30 years;

I myself have thought about this.. I think mixed race kids who are white and black 9 times out of 10, feel more black than white so associate themselves with their black identity. Me and my partner let our son try all different foods etc and I speak to him about Jamaica. He has friends of all different races so I dont see it causing him much drama as his generation will probably be so intergrated with different races it wont matter.

So racisim doesnt exist? Are you being serious? Were you dropped on your head as a child?
That's not really what they are saying and you know it.

You're technically neither black or white, your son is mixed race.


Good tactic of genocide when you think of it to destroy a race by making everyone mixed race.

Clearly thats what hes saying as according to him its not the 60s and race isnt relevant. Tbh its pointless speaking about racisim with someone who has never experienced it. Being in an interacial relationship and having mixed race kids has issues that arent in same race relationships, he wouldnt know this as he has zero experience.. so why he chooses to speak on things he knows nothing about is beyond me.

I'm black and my partner is white, does that give me permission to speak? :lolwut:


Kinda depressing that skin colour is a qualification to be able to comment on society. :emo:



What I was saying if you'd bothered to read properly before frothing at the mouth is that most of the people using this forum will have experienced multicultural society, where their celebrities, heroes, friends and family are all drawn from different races and cultures. So to come on this site of all places and post about the hardships of interracial children is absolutely bizarre.


I meant no offence, but I've clearly upset you. I hope you are happy with your partner and I'm sorry if you've ever experienced racism (Everyone has, you're kinda being racist to me right now for example), but that doesn't give you the right to play a victim and be racist to others. Set a better example for your kid and stop segregating him because of his heritage.
