  • I dating out of my race, I'm white and my girl is Puerto Rican. My parents love her, but they're also old as shit and a little ignorant. My dad is more regular ignorant and my mom is ignorant, but means well. She's a little crazy and just says inappropriate shit, haha. She told a supermarket cashier that her facial piercings make her look like an African savage. So glad I wasn't there, I would have died. And the reason I know is because she told me, as if she did this girl a favor. Yikes. Elderly people are a trip. But anyway, I don't think they love it in theory, but they seem to have no problem with it in reality.

  • No, they don't care. And if they did I'd laugh and tell them to f*ck off. I don't tolerate that kinda crap, and if that makes me look disrespectful toward my parents then so be it.

  • Im middle eastern and my family has never been keen on me dating period. I do not think it has anything to do with race as much as the act of dating. However if it came down to marriage my family would not be keen on marrying anyone outside of my ethnicity. Its more tradition than anything else.

  • Hmmm, I don't think my dad would care, he'd probably just be surprised. As far as people in my extended family, there's a few that would have that dafuq look on their face especially one of my uncles.
    I'm black of course.

  • I think there are some family members that might be uncomfortable with some races if I dated one but they would never say anything about it. They would just say, if you are happy, then I am happy.

    • Well, you know the captive breeding program was only started 10 years ago, but we've had a lot of success. 5 years ago we set up the Ryan Reynolds Foundation to raise funds for the word. We'd love your support :)

  • I was in a 3 year relationship with a mixed race girl, and I think my parents had something against it. I don't think it's because they're racist, I think it's because since they are part of a much older generation, they weren't up for something so dramatic.

    I'm dating a Caucasian now, and it's likely they'll be happy about it.

    • its just for imformational reasons..i asked everyone

    • I would even go as far as saying Of course they care! What kind of parents would I have if they didn't?

  • I'm mixed White and Asian . My grandparents on my Asian side (particularly my grandmother) want me to marry a Chinese girl. Other than that, nobody cares who I date.

  • In 1970 if I were alive, they would have cared. But now that it's 2014, none of them would care. We are just a very traditional family about stuff.

    • It does seem that way not doesn't it?

    • Ahh!

      It does seen that way now doesn't it?

    • And you downvoted me why? I said my parents and family wouldn't care if I did, but back in the day they would have.

  • My step dad had a thing against white guys because "they enslaved, raped and murdered us in the olden days". I was like: "its the 21st century. Stop holding grudges". As far as my mother goes: She just wants a handsome son in law :)...as long as I'm happy. I don't give a hoot about race. Stereotypes are so foolish. I hate them even if they're trending.

  • I'm Hispanic though I look white (dk blonde hair, green eyes, fair skin). My parents only approve of my marrying white or Hispanic and of those Hispanics, those that are lighter skinned. Especially my mother. I think she would go ape-sh-t if I dated anyone else.

  • I am married to a white guy, and I know if I ever married another race my mother wouldn't care but I think my dad would. My sister dated an East Indian for a bit and he wasn't too thrilled. I have heard him talk about other races as well and it's not always nice

  • No, my family is pretty multicultural in general. They would probably mind if my partner was Tamil or muslim because of silly conflicts in my country of origin (Sri Lanka) but they'd get over it pretty easily.

    I'm currently in a relationship with a white dude and nobody cares.

  • I'm white and my father is old and southern so yeah it bothers him a little that I'm interested in someone who isn't white (he's Asian .) But he knows better than to say anything about it. When I was younger he would tell me not to bring home a black guy or a latino guy but I chewed him out for it recently and now he just keeps his mouth shut. He's a little stuck in Alabama in the 70s lol but he's getting a lot better about it.
    My mom doesn't care nor does my brother.

  • Yes they would. They have done it with every single one of my siblings. They find something wrong with every single one of them, its crazy. I haven't brought anyone home since I have never dated but I feel like if I do it'll be WWlll lol. Because honestly I'm not going to care what they say or think, its my decision and if that guy makes be happy I won't care about anything else. It would be nice that he would be accepted in my family but if he isn't it's their problem not mine.
