I say date whoever you want. I'm attracted to non-african americans/black americans/whatever else we call ourselves, so I can understand the traditions, race betrayal, etc. Silly really.

Not only did I date "outside of my race," I dated both sexes AND both sexes outside of my race. I faced as many reactions as people, really, but my grandmother took it the worst. She was very critical & disapproving, but she didn't disown or abuse me. I did end up falling in love & marrying someone of the opposite sex & close enough to my "race" that she no longer disapproved. Oh wait, yes she did. We didn't marry fast enough. We "lived in sin" for 6 1/2 yrs. XD I highly recommend it. Oh, & we've been together -very happily- for almost 24 yrs now.

My mother, on the other hand, couldn't have cared less about the packaging. Her focus was on one's character. From the time I was little, she would say she didn't care if the person I chose to be with was male, female, rich, poor, religious/not religious, Black, White, Asian, Hispanic, Polka-Dotted, or Day-Glo Orange, as long as that person treated me with love, honor, and respect. She stayed true to her word, & since I hit just about every one of the above list, she had many opportunities to walk her talk.

I have a daughter of my own, & she's growing up surrounded by such a diverse group of family & friends in all sorts of relationship combinations that she just figures you love who you love. Although she's aware of it, she finds it perplexing when people get so angry & hung up on racial &/or sexual issues. I can only hope that most of her generation are following suit. How amazing would that be, huh?

The human race=one
so it would be my race

To answer the question yes I would but I think at this point my parents would be happy if I would just get a date in general.

It depends. Is this person just someone outside of my race, or someone who is outside of my race who they disapprove for other reasons? [Violent streak, heard him talking on the phone to another girl as he left, impolite, ect.]

If it's solely based on color, I think that's just silly. We're all people no matter the exterior packaging, and I don't think my parents would have a problem if it was someone who truly cared for me and who I truly cared for. Besides, it's not them that would be dating my partner, heh.

I wouldn't let my parents interfere with my love life. Race has nothing to do with the actual person.

Race doesn't play much of a part in their approval or not. It's more about whether the person fits their standards.

If parents want to drag something as petty and meaningless as race into the dating scheme.......then tell them to go jump off a cliff. Try finding real reasons to not date someone, like their a dushbag or they've had 8 girlfriends in the past 3 months, or something.

Who gives a damn what your parents think on that issue. It's none of their business.
