I find that cases in a matter like these usually do not come up. If any parent has that way of thinking and logic than it will sooner or later rub off on the child, putting the child that this ( x race) is what they want and what they will be indefinitely attracted to. Though I will love whoever I choose as the life I am living is mine.

hmm my parents wouldn't care what their race was it just comes down to whether they like the personality or not.

Lol I'm DYING to date a Japanese guy.

(Which is against my mom's - well actually my whole family's wishes. They say I'm Asian enough for this family. Smh.)

But my mom and I have pretty similar tastes when it comes to who we like. I respect her opinion but I mean if I really love the guy and it's only because of race that she doesn't like him - then that's not cool.

Luckily though my mom is cool peoples.

I'm pretty my parents don't care what race they are even if they did care I would still continue to date the person.

I feel like for most people dating someone their parents dont like is part of a rebellious stage. Probably a deep-seeded reason why I am still with my current girlfriend.

Hell yes I'd continue to date him! Luckily, my parents are in an interracial marriage of their own and they don't care what ethnicity the guy I'm dating is. All they care about is if he loves me and is treating me right

Respecting your parents is different from letting them control your life out come.
I am sure your Mom has reason just like yours and so better talk to her and try to understand her in a way you let her understand where your coming from with that feelings of yours also.
You can't choose your family and so she's your Mom and she's the only one in the planet.
If that man of yours is worth than your Mom's feeling then go ahead.
Just try to examine and look things in a different perspective is that Man of yours can do what your Mom willing to do for you in the long run. Decision that we take is a life long irrevocable and irreplaceable contract so in the end just think about it and make sure your SURE for you'll be the one solely going to lived with it.

I would definitely continue dating the other person, because who are they to say what I can do and what I can't, that's how it should be. Everyone has rights to their decisions, no one should come and make it for them, unless they wanted them to do it, this is one reason why I hate those who do forced marriages, to only earn money or something like that, it's stupid >.<

Of course, parents don't dictate their childs life, if you truly love someone then stay with that person, I would.

My parents had a problem with me dating a woman 18 years older than I was when I was 21. That's the only time they got upset about anyone I've ever dated.

I haven't tried bringing home a girl of another race but I don't think they'd have a problem with it. My father's sister married a Mexican. My cousin married a Chinese American. The closest thing I've heard about my parents opinion on race was when I was very young (think 7) my mother showed me a keyboard and told me to always remember that both black and white keys are necessary for making music just like how black and white people are necessary on the Earth.

Extremely corny yes but it's the only opinion I've heard expressed from either parent. I think that their silence speaks far more than anything they could have said. To them race is such a non issue that it doesn't even warrent words. I wish everyone thought of race that way, that it's so unimportant that it matters as much as a person's hair color. I wish.
