    • @asker I'll answer here because I think we're going to annoy Richard with our notifications haha!
      Yeah exactly, you got it :) Umm I don't know why I just noticed it's a trend many Muslim Girls like White converts. The Converts I knew got married really fast lol Maybe because not only do they find them good looking, but also the converts are usually more practicing than born Muslims so the idea might be tempting for a Religious/Practicing Muslim girl :)

    • Oh :/ I hope you'll find someone even better <3 ^^

  • I can only speak on behalf of my own parents. My parents have never been prejudiced at all. They'd be hypocrites if they had that view, because my father was English and my mum is Italian

  • I'm shocked at the poll results. Seems like a lot of GAGers have old prejudice farts for parents. Fortunately my family is very racially neutral and could care less about dating outside your race.

    • "People who are TRULY racially accepting don't give a crap about petty stuff like what race your boyfriend is. They care about how he treats you, period".

  • Generally as is talking about all over the world especially culturally yes, but I think who they marry as an individual should be far more important. Race has never been a concern of mine, who they are as an individual is always what is important to me and when I become a father I won't care what race my daughter or son marries as long as they meet my standards and they genuinely care about and have my children's best interests at heart.

  • I don't ever want to marry my own race. I want a white woman for my wife, as an Asian American, but it's not my parents' problem.

    It's a lot of white people's problems, since there's a lot of taboo in their culture about white women being with Asian men, as opposed to Asian women with white men being more acceptable. I've had people get angry at me for consorting with white women, since they're opposed to race-mixing.

    • I am gonna have to agree with elissadido my parents won t like it if I settle with a white guy.
      They think we have different views and lifestyle and mainly they don t want me to live abroad.

    • @Electronica Terrorism is a low blow. You know a lot of Middle Easterners are Christian right? It is where my Orthodox patriarchs of Antioch, Alexandria, Constantinople, and Jerusalem reside.

  • Hi,
    I really think that more people than will admit it have this.. "problem"?
    A lot of people, including myself, are shocked?, disturbed?, unhappy?, with seeing mixed race couples. all those words are a little strong, and I do NOT say the attitude is right.
    And YES, I am white and was married to an aboriginal for 30yrs.
    I am just answering the question.

  • Generally? yes, and this extends to my GF's family (I'm black and she's white... deep southern in fact, which isn't good for me)

    My mom doesn't give a shit about race. She's dated a white guy. My middle brother's dating a white girl
