Default Are white men truly open to having mixed children?

I'm a black woman and very curious about whether non black guys tend to avoid interracial marriages with black women because they do not want mixed children?

I guess white guys view Asian and Hispanic women as a safe bet, because the children produced from those unions will still look fairly white, while the child will more than likely be darker if created with a black woman. I think this definitely plays a role in the low IR rates between black women and non black men. What are your thoughts?

So I guess no white guys have mixed children or none care to comment.

I don't have any children, and honestly having mixed children't doesn't bother me at all.

Would you feel strange if your children looked totally different than you? I am dating a white guy and I really want to ask him for his thoughts on biracial children, but I don't want to seem like I'm rushing into things LOL, besides I need a ring first.

I think it might affect some men. There do exist some situations where the kids might not fit in socially with the other kids whether we like it or not. I'm a white guy with a Mexican wife. I could easily have fallen for a black girl. Easily.

I just try not to see people as colors.

I wouldn't have any problems accepting and loving a child that didn't have the same skin color as me, but I do wonder how white guys feel about that.

I think mixed black-white children can look extremely beautiful, often more so than pure whites.

Never really thought about it, or talked to any guy that would bring that up, but i suppose its a posiibility, No different than interracial dating may present some challenges for the couple, but certainly nothing that hasnt been overcome a million times before. Maybe you can find a way to indirectly ask him that question, as in bringing up another couple or something like that, if you dont want to be too forward. Good Luck!

No that doesn't bother me so long as they are biologically mind.

I mean they'd be my children, I'd love them regardless.
