Filipino female/black male actually isn't that rare. I think it's the most common Asian female/black male mix. I know at least 10 people who are that mix and I live in a place with few Filipinos.

And what about the children resulting from those relationships? Are they really not accepted by either community? A couple of days ago there was a news story saying a priest in Louisiana refuses to marry mixed-race couples because of the problems their children would face

He wasn't a priest he was a justice of the peace. (Keith Bardwell) A Catholic priest was once killed in Louisiana, by a Methodist minister, for performing what could be deemed an interracial marriage.

James Coyle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Most forms of Christianity never forbade interracial marriage. It's largely a peculiarity of a few forms of US and South African Protestantism.

Although I saw this one on TV one of the oddest mixed-marriages I'd seen was an Episcopalian priest and a Hindu (who remained of the Hindu faith) woman. He was very WASPy looking too as I recall.

Not unless those other persons become Amish. Amish don't marry outside of their faiths or communities.

Technically no, they're one of the most "endogamous" groups out there. I believe Hasidic Jews, Hutterites, Knanaya Christians, and some Zoroastrians also strongly discourage marrying outside the faith. On the "black" end I think there are some small Black Nationalist religions that strongly discourage marrying outside their race.

Anyway back to the Amish. I believe around 10% of people raised Amish choose not to get baptized in the faith and decide to live among us "English" instead. So even though Amish don't out-marry possibly some raised Amish do marry non-white or at least non-Germanic people. I considered mentioning them otherwise.

I know twin sisters who are Black/Filipino.
I knew it was rare, but the mix isn't too bizarre (one of the Black Eyed Peas members are Black/Filipino)

But the most unique mix I've seen is my cousins daughter. She's Italian/Armenian/Jamaican. The father is full Jamaican from Jamaica and my cousin is the Italian/Armenian mix.
She's only a baby, but she has very thick brown hair from the Italian side (not nappy), light brown skin (like Beyonce), and honey colored eyes... On her first birthday nobody could get over how exotic and beautiful she was.
