Why someone MUST like the inter-racial relationships to make the rest happy?

If PullMyFinger doesn't like it, then he/she doesn't like it. What's the problem here?

Those who are critical of this, may also have things in life that they don't like (for example the dollar amount on their welfare check). What should I tell them? "The country is moving on without you"?
I don’t think many people would have a problem with the statement if it was rephrased to only include his own preferences in a spouse. I have a problem with the statement, only because it is a general statement involving everyone.

Who is he to decide whether he likes or dislikes other peoples choices?

This is 110% true.

This is a common trait in EVERY race and in EVERY ethnicity.

You will ALWAYS find people who don't like their own race and/or ethnicity. This is NOT limited to white race only.

He is no one of significance in regards to this topic or the general populous. So it's not an issue.

Liking and/or disliking ANYTHING is a choice that we all make without anyone's approval.

You just disliked his comment - what did u just do? Exercised your right to dislike it.

How hard is this concept to understand?

Right. I exercised my right to criticize him for his statement. As you are doing with mine right here.

I am not advocating taking away his rights. I am just pointing out the absurdity of his opinion, as is my right.

I heard stories about some African parents feeling the same way about their children dating African-Americans. And this was in the Atlanta area, not NYC. It varies though and there have been Africans and Caribbean people dating American Blacks.
I believe it. When I was a teen, one of my best friends was a Jamaican girl. She and her father lived out in the country by the stable I would take lessons at, and back then, she told me she was actually bullied and harassed by African Americans (mostly the girls) because she was considered an outsider. She got tired of trying to fit in, so she decided to become friends with whites and Latinos that were in the area. She later on met a white man from England and ended up marrying him and moved to London.

My sister-in-law is a bleeding heart liberal and ALL my family members are conservatives. She loves us all and has given us the benefit of the doubt. So she is okay in my book. Yes, she has said something I disagree with in the past, but overall, she is a great lady who loves my brother and that is all that matters. The only problem i had with her in the past is that she had two children from previous marriage. At the time, I thought my brother could have done much better because my brother has always dated women who were highly attractive and desirable. My brother has a very successful career and she wants to be a stay at home mom. Now, I believe my brother is very lucky to have her because she is a good woman.

Pretty much all my female friends are white conservatives. Even though they live in California, they are not feminists. They have no problems attracting white men or any men. So not everybody is the same. I think people should be treated as unique individuals.

Like I said earlier, the most desirable men or women are desired by every race. My cousin is a white man. He is not a bad looking man but he is cheap and is socially awkward. He couldn't find an American girl here, so he went abroad.
Not all of California or Washington are super-PC left wing and most of Oregon is not either. However the big coastal metro areas (or coastal-ish in the case of Portland) are left wing as are some of the smaller cities.

Obviously not all white women are the same, but I was just mentioning the reasons why many white men don't want white American women. It should be mentioned that many of them have no objection to white women from Central and Eastern Europe and South America.
