My fiance is jewish, I am black. I am just curious. If I convert will my kids be jewish or does my blackness make my kids not acceptable to jews? I am only curious.

Judaism is one of the few religions where the religious bloodline goes through the mother.
If it is accepted or not is a different story. Personally I think its stupid to convert for your partner. Its about your beliefs and not about pleasing your partners beliefs. He knew full well what your beliefs are and still got together with you. Additionally be converting for him and not for your belief in god you are disrespecting the religion in itself.0

I don't really know, ny Jewish friend was adopted by her Jewish Mother but her biological mother is not Jewish (she couldn't get pregnant so her father had an artificial insemination with an another woman's egg).
She just found out last year and she wasn't happy , she said she can't marry a Cohen because her biological mother is not Jewish. But she is still jewish (my friend).
So I don't exactly know how it goes but I heard it goes through the mother's bloodline, if you convert they will be Jewish i guess.0
