    As above.

    (Just so we’re clear - it’s not racist to say that you wouldn’t... What you’re attracted does not mean you’re discriminatory against people)

    Much as I try, I'm finding it very hard not to think this is an offensive question. But I fail to see what one thing (race) has to do with another (attraction)

    If you’re in an interracial relationship and you then have a mixed child, then you split up, would any of you consider the consequences of that on your child? A mixed child is more likely to be bullied than anyone else, they’re unsure about their identity and they’ll be under pressure to side with each race... and which ever side they’ll choose they’ll not be fully accepted in that race... just making a thought provoking point

    Say youre in an interracial relationship and you have a child then you split up... consider the mental effect on that child - they don’t know which race/side of the family to side with, and whichever side they choose they won’t fully fit in, they’re more likely to be bullied at school/wherever than anyone else... just raising a thought provoking point

    It's not racist at all- there's research showing that we seek partners that look like/are like our parents

    There's a lot of research showing that our partners look like our mother; and so therefore we are likely to be in a relationship with someone who's the same race. Think about it; we see our parents as loving and caring, and subconsiously we are likely to tie those traits to someone who has the roughly the same skin colour, hair colour etc.

    Yes, but there are certain ethnicites that I do not particularly find attractive.

    Absolutely not. What an awful idea!

    I refuse to date anyone who doesn't run the 800m :borat:

    So not one person from a particular ethnicity can be attractive to you?

    It's literally discrimination.
