    How do you feel about people (especially black) who choose to date white or lighter people for the sole purpose of having light skin children?

    I dated a girl that was a lot like this. I felt used. But mainly I think she was just more of like a lower class that's why she thought that way.

    Some people from a community that's really racist to dark skinned/curlier hair people oddly that can be in the black american community.

    All races do this not just black. It's just often there are no religious barriers and smaller cultural/language barriers for black people so they pair up more with white people. Where I live they banned Asians from using white sperm donors on the NHS to lighten up their babies.

    Plus you have to see it this way. If you were a victim of racism, bullying or oppression why wouldn't you want you kids to have an easier time than you? If you knew your children would have better prospects for being 1/2, 3/4 or 3/8 etc white then what is so bad about that?

    It's sad, but it happens.

    I'm only really attracted to black guys so I'm 99.9% sure all my kids will be black, it doesn't bother me. Black is beautiful

    It is? Afaik, the only people's lives that it is affecting is their own. Doesn't get much "deeper" than that

    Is it self hatred, but why do they hate themselves? Who or what taught them to?

    Also sperm from Denmark, where there is a high frequency of blonde hair and blue eyes, is some of the most sought after in the world, including by other white people. Even whites want to whiten up.

    I'm white but have sometimes thought about having kids with someone outside my race, and then brainwashing my kids to to do the same so I could change my racial lineage...."ooops yeh, sorry mum and dad, all your descendants are black now"

    There's obviously a premium to being white in this world, so I can understand why people from other races would want to do that. Tbh do think its a bit of sad state of affairs, that in many respects you will have an easier life just because you're white (or part white).
