Guys and girls what do you think about interracial couples?

"to preserve their culture and heritage."
Surely you'd have to oppose multiculturalism, too, then. Cultures don't just integrate through interbreeding, there's way more to it than that.
Also, I lol'd at your typo where you wrote 'gender' instead of race. Not sure that's a good plan for reproduction.7
"I'm not homophobic, but I think men should marry women, and women should marry men".
"I'm not sexist, but I think men should provide for the family and women should take care of them and be submissive to them".
"I'm not elitist, but I think health and education should be for those who can afford it".
Not saying you believe those things, but do you see how your phrase sounds like?6
That's the part I'm confused about. "Preserve their culture and heritage." Culture is something temporary whilst race is something physical, and absolute. So when you say to "preserve their culture and heritage" I'm thinking... preserving what culture? Because you can have a caucasian person who completely grew up in a culturally Asian environment? What about those who transitioned into a different culture?5
Why can't you keep your own culture and heritage if you go with someone of another race? Who says you'll have to ditch your culture?
I have no problem with interracial couples, if they wanna date, go for it.1
I think it's best if the person dates who they want. We might as well maximize pleasure in that sense.4
Well culture exists independently of race. Someone can be of Swedish ancestry and grow up in Taiwan and be culturally Taiwanese. Race is just a silly social construct people devised to separate people more than they already are. Think about it this way.. we are over 97% genetically identical to chimpanzees. Now think about how minuscule the difference is between what we consider race and ethnicity.
I think if people have a lot in common and they love each other they should go for it. There's already too much in the world pulling us apart so I'm all for stuff that pulls us together.
Agree. Of course, with the religion of equality and that no race has any genetic differences or majority cultural inclinations over the other, it's now "waaacist!" just to say that a racial groups has a tendency to do anything.1
That's retarded. And racist. Why can't whites preserve black culture and heritage, or vice versa? I'm white, and I'm interested in preserving certain aspects of Chinese culture.
Preserving, honoring heritage and culture has nothing to do with who you are with. I see no reason why a Native American and a Japanese person can't preserve Swedish culture, if that is their prerogative. (or one of their own or both)
If nobody is interested in preserving a given culture/heritage, then that culture has met its natural end. It has, by default, died.
You sound like a race purist. Purism is not a good thing. Hybrid vigor is real, and it's more important to survival than purity.5
I think blacks should fuck Asians more
That mix makes for some good looking kids.5
From my point of view its not a big issue and by saying black with black and whites with white you are making it racist4
I need to find me a nice Black Woman... I'm a White guy3
I don't really think much of em to be honest -shrugs- they never really enter my mind.1
Personally I would only be with a woman of my own ethnicity or similar. That being said people should do what makes them happy.0
Dem European masterrace genes shall not mix with filthy others.0
You can be different races and yet share the same culture0

This is a double edge sword. It's nice to see different races get on together and form relationships. Differences in religion can be problematical though.
The down side is losing that defined racial purity where we all end up like different coloured paint poured into the same pot. Eventually we will all lose our culture and colour and will end up like clones.2
The same culture and heritage could be found among different people. People forget that all humans are technically "connected" to each other in some way shape or form. I personally don't mind who dates who. Preserving culture and such has nothing to do with who you date or what they look like, for that matter.1
Anytime someone says "I'm not racist but," there is a racist remark to follow. Why does it matter to you what others do? If I want to date a black guy how does that effect you? It doesn't. You do realize there are more than two races in this world right?3
I'm uour race isn't a gender just to let you know. Also you an easily preserve your culture and yet have interracial couples/kids. I don't even think most same race cultures preserve their own "culture" I don't know the last time my white friend celebrated their German holidays and I don't ever remember celebrating kwanza2
"I'm not racist at all, but" <- If you have to start off you sentence with than, and then proceed to say think think x-race here should stay with x-race and y-race here should stay with y-race, then you're not helping prove you're not a racist. If everyone kept to their own do you know how much incest would be going on, and how many disabilities people would have? Mixing together actually strengthens a persons immune system and gene pool.2
But why should races stick to one another? Last time I checked, very little bad comes out of interracial relationships. It's merely two humans who love each other, race shouldn't even be a factor in that. Also, 'culture' is not exclusive to specific races at all. You have white people who grew up exposed to black culture and vice versa. Comparing sticking to one's own race to homosexuality is also very dumb.0
I couldn't care less about who other people are dating.
I couldn't care less about skin color either. If the guy is attractive, he's attractive. Period.1
date your own gender? So how would humans reproduce then? No offence but that seems a bit dumb to me.. However genetically children will actually be more healthy the more diverse your genes are from your partners and that's usually more likely to be the case if your partner is a different race then yours so on a biological level interracial couples would make the healthier children. Culture can still be preserved and as a irish / german girl I can only say that I've nothing but benefitted from growing up in two different cultures - I also think it made me more open minded. So from my point of view there's absolutely nothing speaking against interracial couples and I think they make the prettier babies lol3
Why do you think that? Because of the color that they are, so they look better if they are the same color? Makes no sense. Anyways I'm all for interracial dating, I don't care what color they are.1
I think mixed races are usually the most beautiful ❤️ So of course I'm for interracial dating.3
Ignoring personality and other factors, I'd say I am probably attracted to guys of my own race more often, but also have an affinity for men of certain other ethnicites. It's rare that I am sexually attracted to black guys though I can find them visually appealing in the way certain pieces of art can draw my attention. I am however attracted to brown men, particularly Indian men or those of similar ethnic backgrounds and skin tones. Religious differences seems to be the big deal-breaker in these cases though (not that it doesn't happen with white guys, too). I think this is one of those cases of whether you seek positive or negative assortive mating. I can lean either way depending on which physical characteristic, as I can either like white men with brown/blonde hair or brown men. However, I tend to be partial to men with thick hair and a certain build regardless of hair color or skin tone.0
i think interracial couples are cute! colour doesn't define love!0
There's nothing wrong with interracial relationships, so I'm for it. :)1
Awesome! They're very cool in my book.4
I stopped reading after that first sentence.3
You can still teach your child about your culture even if their mixed? They get to learn about and be part of 2 cultures and heritages. The Blacks should go with blacks and white should go with whites is a dumb, outdated idea. The mixing of cultures can be very beneficial. Also, you think its ideal to date your own RACE not your own "gender" like you originally said in your question. Gender and race are not even close to being the same thing.0
