advice, i am not trying to be mean to you but you are going to have to quit being so selfish, think about haveing a family. alot of the times the children suffer because nethir side wants to accept that the child is not a dominate race , think about how the child feels, your father and mother have raised you and fed and clothed you, and sent you thrugh school and hope the best for your life, I have all kinds of friends of differ races, friend family are two differ things, i am sorry but i would not acceot it neither .

I am the father of a daughter and several times i have had to tell my daughter that she has to choose her own life partner. I personally do not believe in the interracial simply because love should never involve death within its foundation. Two ethnic cultures colliding or coming together, something is going to die, parts of you and parts of him. This is true with social and financial differences as well. As, young as you are, even tho you are old enough to make your own choice, it may be hard for you to understand as most of the world has yet to be exposed to you. Family is irreplaceable. Too, many young boys and girls lose respect for their families as they hope and wish for the chance to experience other things. You are at a crossroads in your life. The real choice at hand for you is this. Do I want to be the type of person that is gonna follow my heart regardless how flighty it may be, or am I going to control my emotions, be in control of my life and consider that, this is the type of man I want, except that he is actually meant for someone else and continue to search for your own. I always tell my daughter that she isnt the one with the prejudice issue, as he seems to have a problem not finding a wonderful little black girl. He is just as prejudice as you may think your parents are so, dont ignore them. Good Luck with your choices and decisions.

I believe "mind your business" was referring to: Numbers 36:6b "Let them marry to whom they think best; only to the family of the tribe of their father shall they marry."
Tribe may also be translated as race, or in common words keep to your own kind.

And you're one to be talking? what is an ADDITUDE. "That she can not spell nothing?" SPELL ANYTHING YOU MEAN? You should really, really, REALLY feel like an idiot right now. Thanks for giving me a good laugh. Your screen name is even spelled wrong. Mind your BUISNESS. Haha I can't stop giggling.

CAPS DOESNT SPELL WELL...
It's obvious that Sara is the one that does not have a college degree; so listen to her. She appears to be very bright, but she lacks the ability to spell correctly. Yes! That is a nice attitude! Give into your inherent hedonistic desires. There are no consequences to your actions. Right! A well conceived notion you have displayed Sara. I'm sure that She will take your advice due to the well laid plan you have illustrated for us.

By no means am I a Biblical Scholar, but, I do recall that Ruth married outside her Tribe after the death of her husband. Please before we get crazy with the posts, lets have a mature discussion on this, and who knows, maybe we can all learn something. As far as the interracial topic. I can remember both when I was a child, and when my children were younger. Often when my parents let it be known that they were totally against something, That actually made me want to do it that much more. I also noticed this with my children. I can remember the saying "Everything that looks good is not good for you" I do not know the situation at all.I wish you the best in all that you do. Take it slow and things will work out fine. I have dealt with the interracial issues with one of my children. I was not happy at first, but, I love my grand child more than I ever dreamed I could love someone. I would not take anything for her. I have often said, that in another 50 years or so, whites as well as blacks could be a minority. That might sound crazy, but, you never know.

As for what TRY THIS wrote, some of what he said is true, but, what jumped out at me was when he made reference to him finding a NICE LITTLE BLACK GIRL look around, this interracial thing is not only Black men with White girls, it is now White men with Black Girls. It has come Full Circle

Yes, I noticed that,too but I think he was referring to his experience. It's always been full circle. I guess some people are just now seeing it.

I've read the bible where it says stay with your own kind. It is talking about a man lying with a man and a woman lying with a woman. All of us came from Adam and Eve. How many of you are living for GOD? No sin is greater than the other. The only thing that really matters is that when we die, we are ready. I don't think God cares about skin color. We are made in his likeness. My grandmother used to say races shouldn't mix and was kinda mean about it while claiming to be a christian. My reply to her was... How will you make it to heaven with that kind of hate in your heart?

Don't judge people by the color of skin. Look for that life long partner with the same values as you have.

That is interesting!! Am I correct to say that you have never went to the tanning bed to get a tan? That is what amazes me. Some people are so quick to say evil things about skin color, but are even quicker to try to get dark.
Please do me a favor, the next time some one in your family wants to either wants to lay out in the sun or go to the tanning bed tell them no, they might look BURNT, like a Black woman!
DON'T LIKE US, BUT WANTS TO LOOK LIKE US LMAO
