As long as the human race, as a whole, doesn't become homogeneous, I don't really care. It's easier for a disease, virus, etc. to wipe out a homogenized species, and diversity does offer some useful adaptations.

Since I'm a mongrel, I'm bound to end up in one.

I don't think there is any real danger of that happening. People for the most part pick out things that are familiar to us because it makes us more comfortable. This is why they say we often date people like our parents XD.

People in interracial relationships are a big minority but everyone should just be with the person who makes them happy no matter their race. Some people try to pick out interracial relationships usually for all the wrong reasons because they have an obsession with a particular race. I've a few Asian friends who get hit on by white guys who are just into Asian girls and they just say they dislike it because they are not interested in them as a person they can be anyone as long as they look Asian. People should get to know the person regardless of race i think when you obsessively decide that only a particular race is what you want then you start pursuing a relationship for the wrong reasons and it'll only end in upset.

I love the idea of interracial relationships. I knew this one girl who's parents said if she ever dated a black guy, they would disown her. That's awful. Makes me think of that cheerios commercial they had a while back, that everyone fussed over. The one with the little mixed girl, and the black dad and white mom?

That's terrible. I didn't think racism was still that bad, but apparently it is. The racist comments on the video got so bad, they had to disable them. There was even some racist comments on Facebook as well. Why it such a big deal for cheerios to make an ad with a mixed race family in it?

In the end it all comes down to who you're attracted to and what you want your children to look like. My twin sister's personal preference is red haired guys, she won't look at anyone other than a red head. And that good for me, hehe. I can't even look at a red head in that way though xD. I personally melt for guys that are pale, light or dark eyes, and dark hair. They are soooo hot, I can't even... And although most of my family are blondes or very light featured (brown hair), I still loooooove guys with pale skin and dark hair. For a while, I was so attracted to Asian guys, total fan girl until I saw that their way of life is so different from my own. Even here in the USA, they have a strict and secluded way of life, like a community. <3 My fam is from Cuba but my 4 grandparents are from Spain. My mom's great grandmother that she actually met had white blond hair like Daenerys from Game of Thrones and eyes like the ocean. People in my family aren't like that anymore. I wish I had met her. Anyway, humans are slowly but surely changing. I believe every generation changes more and more.

About mixing, I can only speak from personal observation in my family. My uncle brown haired, blue eyed married a pale dark haired woman that has a black like the night grandfather. My cousin came out color blind, something that genetically happens a lot to mixed people, very common to them, not too much to women but she got it and at age 7-9 started getting spots all over her body that looked like dark rashes until she changed into a darker color. But you know what, in the end you get with who ever you want and it doesn't matter what other's think because it is your life, not theirs. You live your life and they live theirs. They're not going to live your life just like you're not going to live their's. And the family you mostly have to worry about is the family you have at home or the family you love.

The relative melanin content of a person's skin represents a visible characteristic to which individuals may or may not experience attraction, much like hair or eye color, height, body composition, and so on. Which of these characteristics and in what combination are most important for experiencing attraction to a prospective partner is entirely subjective and ought not be directed by anyone outside of the individual. People should be free to both feel and lack attraction to physical characteristics of their own choosing and in any combination.

That said, giving primacy to physical attractiveness during determination of whether to establish or maintain a relationship is a superficial and shallow manner of thinking whatever the characteristic of interest may be. What's more, should one's attraction to or distaste for a particular characteristic turn out to actually be motivated by preconceived notions about the relative value of individuals or groups as people on the basis of their physical characteristics (to include skin color), and therefore turn out to not be benign personal preferences at all, I would actually object very strongly. I would object most strongly of all if either legal or social institutions were put into place to prevent individuals who did not possess these prejudices and which sought to enter into interracial relationships from doing so. I would actively and viciously oppose such institutions and seek to promote the freedom of interracial couples to form at their members' leisure.

Edit: Clarity in the last sentence.

Yes, everyone is attracted to whomever they are attracted to and it depends on the person. I also believe that if you have a preference to certain traits that make you like someone more biologically, it isn't wrong. Just like if you like someone because they are smarter than you or you assume that they are smarter than you, that's alright. Also, if you're attracted to bad boys because they are bad boys, that's fine. If you're hot for someone because of their physical, it's fine. If you're attracted to someone who you find hot, smart, and bad boyish, then that's fine too. In the end, it doesn't matter why you like someone, as long as you like someone. I don't think people purposely not like someone else because of their characteristics, it's absurd. They either do or they don't but they don't have to convince themselves.

I also don't think it's wrong if you're not attracted to someone because of their culture, stereotypes, statistics, or whatever. I don't find that wrong whatsoever. If you're not attracted to me because of my race or ethnicity, that's fine. If you don't like people in the middle east because of their religion, looks, or culture, that's fine. If you're not attracted to certain people because of their behavior or because of statistics, that's fine. We've adapted into humans that look for the strong. If you're turned off by bums, that's fine. If you're not attracted to people because of their religion, political views, looks, culture, whatever, that's not wrong. It's not that you're forcing yourself, it's just that you are repelled. No one in the world likes everyone.

If it weren't for interracial relationships I wouldn't exist.

So I clearly don't have a problem with them.
