My opinion,but i don't think so.it's the world and some of the people in it,that make it a problem.
if you are a good person and do the right things in life that's all that matters.There are many people out there who date and they are not the same race.Some even get married.We have to learn that we are all the same and race does not matter.
I will say this,there are people out there that will not agree with me.That's ok,it's only my opinion.

I don't think it's a big deal as long as it's a strong and loving relationship.

I guess my question goes a bit beyond the original. To include marrage and children. My thoughts are when are the children given considderation ? When races are mixed we create a third. And along with that comes a whole new series of DNA. How can these children be considered in the future for such things as transplants ect. And who knows the reaction later in life when one produces a child of unexpected race due to years of mixed genes ? Are we thinking of the childrens complicated lives, or just our own current emotions ??

Those mixed kids are not really accepted by whites but are by blacks. Look at Obama, blacks call him a black and so do whites call him that but he aint really black. Abe Lincoln said blacks and whites will never get along. Tried giving all blacks $500 and free passage back to africa.

That's a tough question.I can't begin to comment on it.It brings up some interesting questions.Not as easy as one might think.Food for thought.

two things matter in dating. One is love, the other is a good orgasm.
If you have both, I would stongly suggest marriage with a bulletproof pre-nuptual contact :)

Take all of that nazi dna stuff out of the equation. Mixed blood is stronger, pure and simple, just like in animals.

The thing is, if you are happy, then why are you asking us these questions? Just a thought.

If you are happy, you must be doing something right. Be responsible, but don't question it

I don't think society should tell you who you should spend the rest of your life with. I had a friend whose mother and father were of different races and she was beautiful! He parents were professional people and they had a solid relationship.

That is wonderful.. but how has his life been, as a result ?? You said you HAD a friend. Would you have dated or married him ? Would you have been comfortable having his child ? Has he had any health issues that have been an issue. And who knows when a child or grandchild appears with strong opposite genes ? My whole point is who has the right to speak for generations to come ?

i want to hear about 1, or any health issues that mixed blood has that is more substantial than any pure blood race has. Till somebody can tell me, i guess no one has any more questions.
it is a shame that this poll is dying off with so little response

Try looking into Heart Transplants, as well as Livers, Bone Marrow, & on and on. The factors need to be so close for matches, and every major race is differant. Unfortunate as it might be, a power greater than you and me made us that way. Did he have a reason ??

hey, if you are right, you are right :) I really appreciate your being able to respond to this poll without the anger and insults that lots of people rely on to get their point accross.
I still wonder though, how common is it for anyone to find a match or have access to hearts, livers, and bone marrow, even within their "prureblood race"
It would also be interesting to find out if mixed race individuals are more, the same, or less prone to needing such transplants due to genetic predisposition.
Please understand, I am not argueing with you, and I welcome this discussion as an opportunity to learn.
So I guess what I am wondering now is, are the odds of needing such drastic surguries and medical treatments substantial enough to warrant so much concern. Also, isn't it possible that there could be a large enough population of mixed race, that such organ donation, etc, could be provided from within that mixed race group? Seems like the need would be proportional to the number of people in that bloodline, just like in any other bloodline.
If you can tell me that mixed race children are MORE PRONE to needing such treatments, then you have a point that cannot be argued, till then, I would still have to wonder which one of us is right.
Also, lots of asian caucaision children out there. I have not heard anything about them having the medical needs that you require.

I respect you point of view, and if you have imperical eveidence to proove your point, I am more than willing to stand corrected.

Ziggy, I will answer this post, because I have a constructive answer, Yes, I do have a first hand answer. I lost my wife to cancer. Her only hope was a Bone Marrow transplant. There are very strict divisions between all races. Actually white caucasions are the closest thing to a universal match oportunity. Due to the difficulty of finding a perfect match, they have gone so low that 80% matches are being used. And the results are not good. Livers, and hearts will not even considder matches out of the high 90's.

As for my second thought. You seem to be knowledgeable about every topic here, and now are starting your own. If you want to seperate yourself from the useless here. Pick a topic or two, and champion them. When every topic here is last visited and commented on by you. It just say's don't bother reading, he's just another know it all... Sorry

I am very sorry of your loss, and I am sorry that you have had to remember/re-live it in order to write back.
As far as my being a know it all? Nope, trust me, I am more than aware that I do not know it all.

Again, I am sorry if posting opinions, thoughts, or questions in a forum devoted to the same. I did not know it was innapropriate. I thought the stuff that was on the forum was there to be responded to, and I had no idea that you were in charge of judging people as "know it alls" for writting more often than you think is appropriate.

Causes to champion? Don't you think that starting a site that can generate advertising revenue to be donated back to our community is a cause? I thought my offering to do so with no financial benefit to myself, but plenty of work, was a positive thing. See? you are right, I clearly do not know it all, and am happy to have prooven it with that point.

IF you have truely lost someone because of medical complications and race, lets both do that person an honor, and stop insulting each other.
I would like your permission to continue writting as I please. If you disagree with what I write, I respect that with no hard feelings. I do question how the frequency of my posts is more importaint to you than the words I have written in them.
Again, if I have offended you to the point that you feel justified in insulting me personally in order to complete your agruement, I am sorry. The way you are feeling and reacting must all be my fault.

Merry christmas

Ummmmmmm,
Looking back, I realize that I may have mis-understood your reply (what a difference a day makes). It struck me as negative and critical the first time around, but perhapse that was just the way I chose to read it.
Feeling a little sheepish now, and would like to extend an apology if it is due. Not trying to turn this into "a Halmark Moment", just trying to be responsible for my actions and repectful of your advice.
This site does not bring out the best in people, myself included.
Again, I am sorry for your loss
