    But her culture could still exist regardless of who she marriages.
    There are many mixed marriages where both the husband and wife accept each other cultures, raising their children to be aware of both cultures. That's a beautiful thing in my opinion.
    I'm Tamil and I can tell you that Tamil culture is always the same.We have the oldest and still living civilization in the whole world, we are still here because we only mix within our own people and we are very conservative.As diaspora Tamils, we have moved thousands of miles abroad in search of opportunity and to make a better life for ourselves. We have adopted foreign lands as our own, built places of worship, and formed cultural organizations and institutions to preserve our identity. One cannot deny that our unified Tamil identity and traditional Tamil values imparted to us by our parents – a respect for elders, faith, traditions, education, marriage and family – form the foundation of the success that diaspora Tamils enjoy today. And in a marriage in which both partners are Tamil, we are in a much more advantageous position to preserve and transmit these values to our children." I have seen many mixed race Tamils, and sadly none of them could speak Tamil....

    Another reason is that... traditional Tamil / Hindu culture is completely different from the western..especially when it comes to marriage life. In the eyes of most Tamils... westerners are capable of polygamy, infidelity, fornication etc. In Tamil culture people are expected to be virgins till they get married... and they are expected to remain married forever to a single partner. Also.. western culture is self centric... exact opposite to Tamil . But in the west this isn't the case... People are fine with losing virginity before marriage, and people tend to give so many reasons to divorce or leave a partner .. for another. For an instance... reasons for divorce like... I lost the spark, fell out of love, I am no longer in love...etc are disgusting and ..selfish according to Tamil standards. These are totally different cultures. So that's the major fear of every Tamil family ...when their son/daughter tells them they wanna marry a westerner. In Sri Lanka a marriage is for life...and forever. So a parent will not risk their kid's marriage life with someone from a culture...which is completely against theirs and have a very bad track record of sticking to one partner. Indian families see ..their child getting married to a western person...similar to gambling with their life.... So I see this not as hating non Tamils... but.. being in a defensive mode. 

    In my view people who mix have problems, its easy for them to hide behind political correctness but ultimately its nonsense and doesn't apply to the real world and when they have kids they essentially throw them under a bus and hope they deal with it somehow. when they teach mixed kids that race is worthless, so worthless in fact that anyone who does value what they are Must inherently be racist... they immediately trap those kids into looking at people of a particular race who have issues as their parents did...as being "normal". they force their kids to dip into a small pool of broken people. and those mixed kids in turn help perpetrate the idea that the only 'problem' with race mixing would be good old fashioned racism, rather than viewing interracial mixing as a social itself in and of itself.

    I've never reported anyone on this site and usually this type of comment wouldn't even make me flinch, but I know you're an SJW crybaby so I'm gonna enjoy this
    Lol why do you feel the need to let me know that you reported me? No ****s given over here. I'm half brown and half white, it's like day and night, the truth is the truth. I've witnessed and experienced it for myself because I'm half brown and I'm not going to support brown people just because I'm brown, what's right is right- the things they have instilled in them is messed up. You sure you're not a cry baby mister reporter, your mad don't lie.

    I did some research about him being racist or not and came across this :
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-india-34265882
    What do you think about this? It says he was quoted saying 'must withdraw Kaffirs' from "Coolie Location" where a large number of Africans lived alongside Indians. I researched what the term 'Kaffirs' means and apparently is means 'an insulting and contemptuous term for a black African.'
    a lot f the so called letters were stated fabrications by the ruling british during the indian movement for independance- british were experts at spreading flase propaganda and divide and conquer. ganhdi while in south afirca was a lawyer and though initially he wasnt , i latter part his career there he became a civll rights specialis and did lots of work with black - this is why african groups pre anc - and why Mandela held him in such high esteem

    i love how all these internet trolls try and pretend they knew the attiudes of gandhi on africans more than mandela and those who knew gandhi best

    Most East Asian countries (India, China) are savagely racist. Which is why it's funny when the left try to paint this culturally relativist picture of evil racist Westerners oppressing innocent yellow and black people when Western societies are the least racist and most open-minded.
    Indians are south Asians.

    India is one the most racist countries out there.
    You have to know the history of India to know exactly why, but long story short they consider darker skinned people as inferior.
    by this logic, Indians see white people as superior to themselves? Or does the whole light > dark only go to a certain level of darkness? If so where is the line drawn?

    Other than the examplary Nordic nations I think all other counties are struggling to deal with racism. Be it uk or India or even Zimbabwe.

    Are you used to users quoting you to say you have serious problems with life? I don't really do this, but I feel some of your posts are downright narcissistical
