What is your parents opinion on interracial dating?

I just learned that this is a problem for people so Im curious to know how it is :). Writing your own nationality/ethnicity might be interesting too. Personally race isn't a problem for them but culture can be. They would probably be unhappy if i married a religious person for example.

  • Both my parents would be options B, C, D. I'm a Pacific Islander so not too many full bloodied of to go around and they would prefer to keep it that way. Holding on to "traditions, religious beliefs, rituals, ideals" or whatever bullshit they've been blowing out their ass since I was created. I grew up w/ them telling me all sorts of things about other races, religions, who to marry, why to marry and a bunch of other ancient ass-backwards notions. Personally, I could give a fuck about what they think, feel and know about my personal relationships, they should even be lucky to have me introduce any girl I'm dating or whatever. My parents are stereotyping racist bigots who only have manipulated their kids to only further what they want. I was always told that I wasn't born to do what I want but to do what they wanted me to. Yeah, tough break on the parents part.

  • My parents don't give a fuuuuuck which is probably why I don't either. My dad dated outside his race before it was socially acceptable.

  • they don't like it.
    More concern would be given to a daughter than a guy. It really just comes down to their feelings of safety. -_- i mean yea its a prejudgment, but its sometimes out of concern and safety for the kid.

  • With my parents race never matters, all that matters is that she's pious. Same goes for me, don't matter the race she just gotta be a pious Muslim and we're good to go.

  • My parents dont care

    But the question you asked is ok according to most people... People feel its their right to choose the race they want

    As this GAG poll suggests:

    • Why the down votes?

    • I understand, although my mom agrees with my dad

    • I think downvotes because people consider that racist BUT at the same time they want the same rights you just stated about your parents

      People want to make racial preferences on who they date but if they hear about its deemed wrong

  • I've never asked and tbh, I wouldn't care either way.

  • To my family it is more about the culture and religion than about the race, they definitely would be disappointed if I had a relationship to a e. g. turkish or arabian girl. And I think, I'd be outcasted by my family if I was married to a black girl.

    • Im from sweden so I can relate a bit. I think my parents would be fine with kurdish at least because they are like the most normal arabs/middle eastern so to speak.

    • Show All
    • See that's why I'm not religious but more spiritual. As I see the soul of a person and not what's on the outside. I bet your dad wouldn't mind someone he doesn't approve of to save his life but not into his family. I can't take double standards with people. Their beliefs divide people and therefore the world of full of judgement and hate. These are my views, I'm not perfect and I don't want you to think I'm being harsh, I just have no other way to express my view other than being direct. So don't be offended

    • I agree with everything you said about how religions like islam and christianity are splittering people. And yeah my dad would probably for example let a nazi save his life but not let me marry one xD

  • Voted D. I'm Arab but I've dated Latinas, Asians, whites but of all they would hate me to ever date an Asian again. This is their words "they're not enough women".

  • I think my parents are slightly different on this topic. My mother announced that she wouldn't care if any of us married a member of our own gender or another race or both.

    My dad is more reserved. I think he'd have a slight issue with it initially but then get over it.

    She was happiest when I was dating the lawyers son.. most upset when I was dating the quasi-homeless musician.

  • My mom is perfectly fine with interracial dating. Her first boyfriend was Guatamalan.

    My dad tends to joke around about not dating outside of my race strictly, becuase he knows I'm attracted to boys of every race. But he said as long as he knows how to treat you right the color of his skin shouldn't matter, but I think he still prefers for me to marry inside of my own race.

  • Mom doesn't care. My Dad is totally against interracial relationships but we are estranged anyway. Those kinds of stupid beliefs are partly why I refuse to have anything to do with him.

  • You should of had an option that says "product of interracial relationship" because that's what I am, I'm mixed black/white so my parents are open-minded about who I choose to date. As long as they treat me good and their values are respectful then that's all that matters.

    Also, in this day and age, any clever person would understand that race is no longer the issue but rather class is. Have a think about that!

  • I live in a multicultural/multiracial country. I grew up in very mixed communities. My parents don't care who I date as long as they treat me right and obviously we like each other. (my dad couldn't care less it's more so my mom who cares). I have had boyfriends of different races and my mom never cared about their race.

  • My mom has expressed that she wouldn't date out of her race and she was saying it as if she would want me to do the same as her. But, I'm not like her. I like guys of all races and date out of my race often. I don't think she'd ever say anything disrespectful about it though, I doubt she'd really mind.

    My dad on the other hand is married to a woman of another race so I don't think he'd care.
