"I mean why can't someone just love another person for their personality not their the color of their skin or their physical appearance?"
Because that's not how the human mind works, no matter how much people try to deny it. Physical attraction (of some kind) is what gets your personality's foot in the door.
Interracial dating? I have no problem with it whatsoever. I will date any girl of any race.

It's a big deal to some people, but everyone is entitled to their own opinions and ideas. If you're happy and he's happy, then for you there's no problem, right?
But don't let other people, not even family nor friends shake your believes or make you take the easiest road because that's the day it will become a big deal between you two.
Also please realize that if you do intend to go through with it, there will also be consequences. Like if you ever break up, the next guy might not feel comfortable knowing you dated someone from another race and you cannot force him to accept or feel revolted; if you've kids, they'll also have to deal with that heritage by themselves in school or wherever, maybe even feel like they don't belong anywhere.
There is a good side and a bad side in almost everything, just as long as you make an aware decision and don't delude yourself. Not everyone will be against it, nor will everyone support you. Such is life. One day at a time.
