Hey all. I am thinking of going to Tallahassee very soon (for school) and I am just wondering how interracial relationships are viewed over there. I just really want to be around open minded and friendly people. I got nothing to go on so your help would be really appreciated. Thanks.

Surprisingly, you should not have a problem in Tallahassee especially when considering the amount of diversity among college students in the area as well as permanent residents. However, there are idiots everywhere but I'm sure you know that already.

Firstly, why are you so worried about what other people think about your relationship? I don't care if strangers are accepting of my marriage.

Secondly, what kind of problems exactly do you think would arise from people disapproving of your marriage? Are you expecting people to show up at your door step with pitchforks? If so, you may be the bigot.

(I guess I qualify as being in an inter-racial marriage but to me its just a regular marriage.)

I'm not in a relationship... I just want to go to a place where that would be no problem especially if I am going there for college. I am really considering FSU.

Why would it be a problem? Interracial relationships are perfectly legal in all 50 states. You shouldn't have any legal problems and it's extremely rare for attacks or anything like that to happen because of it. Some guy got beat up by some blacks around here a few months ago because he was white and his girlfriend was black, but like I said these things are rare. You'd probably be more likely to die in a car accident.

Usually when I hear interracial that pretty much always means a black guy with a white woman. Most other combinations fly under the radar and don't cause much of a stir.

I would suggest that the OP not worry about it and don't bring that kind of angst or turmoil in to a relationship as it will most likely cause you stress and iissues in your relationship if you are too concerned with what other people think. There's always going to be people that will look at you funny or mutter something behind your back no matter what. If that's something you can't get over you will have issues.

I see where you are coming from. Thank goodness that it is legal everywhere. But what I am trying to decipher is if such a thing is looked down upon or frowned upon or if the majority of people there are really blinded enough to treat someone differently because of that. I would hate to be criticized for dating another member of the Human race. Also I want to know if the guys and girls there "mingle" regardless of race so that............ you know. I have pretty much only dated others outside my race so a place where INTRAracial dating is the only expected norm just won't fit with me.

Maybe it's just me but do people really have a problem with inter-racial couples today? Maybe some little 95 old granny (of any race) might have a problem with it but really? I can't even imagine anyone being so backwards today.

I think if anyone did DNA testing on any of us, we would find out that we are all mixed.....

Everybody trips over themselves to be PC. Everybody is racist, it was a protection built in by evolution. You don't think it is racists for Obama to call Trayvon Martin his son, and then totally ignore the fun killing of Christopher Lane in Duncan Oklahoma. Why would this question even be asked by someone not in a relationship. Somebody needs to quit chasing rainbows.

I can parade out thousands of white girls who have destroyed their lives, while Baby Daddy rots in prison. You can have the cold hard facts or you can dance around in your little dream world.

I actually have a different theory. In Biology class what I learned is animals are more likely to mate with others which are more genetically different. Healthier offspring, ya' know. I think racism is much more socially built rather than naturally.
