Now my weight, I have some say in.
I agree. Be proud of who ever you are.

But if you're proud to be white you are considered prejudice.
How come if your Asian,Black,Hispanic and you want your children to marry within their own race you are considered proud, but if you're white and want your child to marry another white you are considered prejudice?
You shouldn't be telling your child who to marry in the first place. Who they fall in love with isn't something you (or they) can choose. Besides mixed race children tend to be healthier and better looking than non mixed.

Listening to many posters on here you would have thought there were still slave ships pulling into harbor.

It's sad and pathetic, really.
Huh? Most of the threads on race here aren't started by people who would like Obama very much...You've picked the wrong target.

Since I don't believe in entering to any serious contract based on an emotion. I don't believe "Love" is a valid reason to get married. Emotions tend to change like the wind. I need something more stable than that.

You'd marry someone you didn't love? Or force your children to do so?

Yes it is - the ancient greeks new it was for a start! phi mask:

Human Beauty - In the Phi of the Beholder

I said 'most', not all. A good example is that there aren't that many ugly brazillians- a good indication that the more heterozygous (varied) a persons genes the more dominant ones they inherit. Its a well known fact in biology.
