Impossible. We're all hopelessly racist, condescending, illiberal, bigoted 'Mericans. Black people can hardly walk outside without getting tackled or shot by the blues. I can't imagine them making it to a church for a wedding. Let alone making it past Sally May's father without catching a buckshot to the face for "tryin' ter taint mer fam'ly's bloodline".

There's nothing wrong with paying tribute and acknowledging traditions as well as culture , while being accepting of modern times. Having fear for the unknown is a normal instinct of any human as such with these conversations. However guys they're called traditions for a reason. They stay forever in history and are practice even in modern times. breeding with other races won't erase that but lead to cultural acceptance and spread. I don't believe for a minute that every culture will just blend together and eventually human race will forget its origins. If such a thing happen, we wouldn't have holidays. Jokes aside, I'm " Pro/ For' Interracial dating, as long as the respect for each other's backgrounds is still there. When you're more than once race, you don't really forget. As long as parents pass it down to their kids , who pieces of them are in their ethnic / ancestral backgrounds. You can rest easy that there really won't be one race.

At the end of the day we are all just human beings trying to live our life's or escape them.

As a member of a distinct minority I am not entirely sure how to feel about this. The thought of my people willingly breeding themselves out of existence sits ill with me. At the same time the modern man in me wonders why I place such stock on the racial purity of my people. Maybe the thought of our conquerors finally winning is the reason.


That's a tough one to think on in a long term perspective. Comparatively speaking there isn't that many of you left in the grand scale of things.

I mean, I have Cherokee blood on one side 2 steps back but it didn't stop me from being laughably white.

Okay, I'm just going to say it. Who fucking cares? I wasn't aware that interracial marriage was still a big shocker (probably because it isn't). How about the media stops shoving us all into neatly labeled categories and actually focuses on stories that matter?

I don't see any reason to care, really. As an indicator, this may be the result of more overall open thinking, but as end in itself, I find it pointless to force or even applaud on its on.


Relax no one's asking for a standing ovation. XD

I've been in an interracial marriage for about 11 years now and I never really thought about it. I wonder if people think we look odd together, my wife Japanese and I'm an American ape.

But I think it's a good thing we're mixing races more. Get the best genes from both parents and make a super child.

I wonder, though: do you really need to preserve genetic history in order to preserve and honour things like oral and written traditions, visual art, music, poetry, and so forth? I'm not so sure you do.


You don't really need the genetic history, no. But nowadays many people will cry that someone without the genetic history honoring and preserving those things is "cultural appropriation". So once those genes are gone (or diluted to some arbitrary point that society decides) it can only really be preserved with an "outside looking in" kind of view... and we can never be sure if it's an accurate preservation.

So for example if Japanese genes die out and we consider making and wearing kimono to be cultural appropriation (I don't, but some people do) then we (society) can look at pictures of people in the past wearing kimono but we will eventually forget many of the nuances about how to properly wear kimono. And once the kimono already in existence decompose, another wouldn't be made.

(A solution to this would be to drop the "cultural appropriation" crap, obviously, and I hope we do before much is lost.)

That doesn't sound like news to me. That's so common in the Caribbean and has been for many years. When it comes to the Carib/taino people, there's only one reservation on the island of Dominica left. There are a few Carib communities elsewhere but none can truely say they're pure bloods anymore. Most can look either black, white, Asian (China - Indian sub continent) or Carib/taino or a mix of two or more. In some families you can have siblings from the same two parents that look like they each came from a different continent. It gets interesting when things skip generations only to show up later.

A friend tells me that the reason I have so many allergy problems is because I'm too mixed up. She's one to talk because some mistake her for a biracial black/white mix when she claims to be authentic African.

Sounds to me like a bunch of wishful thinking.

I don't know about this cultural appropriation stuff but I have to agree with the outside looking in viewpoint. I grew up in Japanese household, I grew up studying the language , Kenjutsu , Tea ceremonies , Flower Arranging , I've spent as much time in Japan as I have in Canada . And right now I am trying to apply for permanent citizenship in Japan so I can inherit the estate of my adoptive Father's Father. But despite how steeped in Japanese culture I am there are still things about it I still don't understand despite the fact one could argue I have more knowledge of it then my own racial culture. 29 years of living and I still understand aspects of it less the a native born Japanese person would at my age.

I just like that people have more choice about who they can be with, so... applauding the 50th anniversary of the 1967 legalization?
