I've always looked at the subject as: there's only one race- the human race.

although I have known a few individuals who seemed to be of a different race altogether

You obviously have never been in the military. There are tons of wm/bw couples that originated in the military, believe it or not. And quite a few lead to marriage ...

Interesting, isn't it?
Heee, one of my good friends is black and from Honduras. She calls herself a "blacktina."

I grew up in small town, middle America, a place not incredibly ethnically diverse. I graduated from HS with about 150 kids, predominantly non-Hispanic whites. Our town, with its large agricultural/agricultural processing industry, also had a sizable Latino minority population, which has grown by now to the point that it's not really a minority anymore. But when I was in high school, about fifteen years ago, only a handful of my classmates were Hispanic (black, white, or otherwise). They were mainly from settled-out migrant farm families, mostly Mexican and Tejano.

When we were all little kids in school together, there wasn't really any social distinction being made (at least, not on the kid level). But by the time we were in high school, the Latino kids began to only associate with the one another. A kid you might have palled around with in junior high wouldn't date you in high school, it was a definite shift. Too bad, really.
So not much opportunity for cross-cultural dating. I went to a very white (Scandinavian Lutheran - a population so white they're transparent) college, so not much opportunity there, either.

In my twenties, though, I met a Nigerian guy (he himself was born in Canada and became a U.S. citizen as a small child, but his parents were each born in Nigeria and came to the U.S. as college students). I was crazy about him, but there was a definite cultural discomfort on his end, in my opinion, which would have ultimately proved a problem had we become serious, I think. I never did meet his parents (they lived far away and were fairly controlling of their only child historically, so he kept them at emotional arm's length), but my impressions from everything I knew from him was that they were impatient that he wasn't married, specifically to some nice girl from their Nigerian community of acquaintances. I don't know that they would have been okay with a white girl in the picture. I do know for a fact that he got a LOT of grief from black women among his colleagues and acquaintances for dating a white girl. Interesting, given that I, from a stereotypically rural/rednecky area didn't face ANY opposition to my dating a black guy, but he, who lived in a far more urban, cosmopolitan, and educated community, got guff.

Post Unsure...

I'm currently starting out in a interacial relationship. Its hard because you normally see the white girl w/ a black guy where I live. Rarely do you see a black girl with a white guy though. I have always been attracted to white guys for some reason, basketball bores tha hell out of me but sit me down sit some guys playing lacrosse & you've got my full attention.
I'm praying that everything goes good but I am still scared about the dirty looks and the snickering comments--they make him so . LOL! This is my first & hopefully it will be my last cuz I really do like him alot.

Anyways, have you guys ever been involved in a interracial relationship? If so, with who? and what race/culture was that specific person?

For the ones who DON'T agree on interracial relationships: tell me why? should men/woman stick to their own culture? Do you have doubts that if you see a man dating a female outside the race/culture as you your culture will be gone? (for example: if a white girl marries a black guy and they have a child and both raise the child to be BLACK-AMERICAN), would that affect you?

I'll start: I've never been involved in a interracial relationship, i don't have a problem with it but i rarely see it in the area i live at.

The End .
Hispanic/white considered interracial?

C'mon you do realize that it's only considered interracial when black people are involved right?

I've been in several. Race never really became an issue. The relationships all failed, but never for reasons having to do with race.
