Is someone racist if they don't approve of multi-racial dating?

To be honest, yes it does make them racist. I am married to a black man and I am not white but tanned. This would generally be classed as an interracial relationship, and some would actually have the nerve to disapprove of this? Seriously, get a grip. What harm are we causing to each other or others? None at all. What right do they have to judge us anyhow?

Of course they are racist. There are NO reasonable reasons for NOT being supportive of multi-racial dating. Humans are all the same. The only difference is which part of the world your ancestors happened to settle.

Now, not dating someone based on how attactive they are, their belief system and religion might be acceptable. But not dating them due to the sole reason of race is being a racist.

By the way, people have no say in how others choose to live their life as long as they are not affecting you in a negative way.

here are NO reasonable reasons

Is that supposed to be a joke or do you always write like that?

...for NOT being supportive of multi-racial dating.

That is dependent upon the scope. I wouldn't want my children to produce progeny with non-European races, but don't care what other people do to their bloodlines.

Humans are all the same.

That's not true.

The only difference is which part of the world your ancestors happened to settle.

There are far more differences between your average two humans than their locations.

Now, not dating someone based on how attactive they are, their belief system and religion might be acceptable.

So refusing to date somebody based on their physical appearance is okay, so long as it's not their skin tone you find offensive?

Unless they can give me a VERY plausible explanation for it, which I don't believe there is, yes, it makes them show a racist approach on the subject.

Racism is ignorance, pure and simple. We live in a melting pot society these days, and you are going to see even more interracial relationships and marriages. If you don't like it, you're going to have to deal with it.

Side: yes

Yes, but if you don't like someone because he is in a different race and you don't feel comfortable then it is not racist, after all love does not have a GPS navigation system.

Side: Yes

Disapproving of multiracial dating does not indicate anything more in a person besides the fact that they disapprove of multiracial dating. To assume that such a person is racist is understandable, but by no means accurate. Racism means that a person thinks lowly of a certain race, or consider their race superior. To disapprove or inter racial dating does not necessitate one to hold those views. It simply means he doesn't think they should mix for whatever reasons that may be.

You might have just slightly changed my mind.

But I still think it's wrong to look down on these relationships.

Side: No

No that is very much their opinion, I don't mind it at all. At this day and age does it really matter.

NO. Thats a tough corner to put someone in. If a young woman or man isnt attracted to someone of a different race your by default calling them racist and pressuring them to keep with social codes in effect taking away their freedom to choose a partner they find attractive.

Side: No

Just because you are not attracted to someone outside of your race that does not mean you are against multi-racial dating for others. And, pressuring to keep social codes? How does forcing someone to approve multi-racial dating mean they can't stick to their own race when they date?

Side: yes
1 point

They are simply stating their own preferences, and as far as I'm aware; there is no rule, law, edict, or declaration that says I have to find anyone, regardless of race, age, or gender attractive or not.

If someone approves of older and younger relationships, does that mean they are automatically a pedophile?

Side: No

Well, right now it doesn't worry me. However, the possibility of eventually loosing race groups, or for example, people with blue or green eyes or blond or red hair or very dark (truly black) skin, does concern me.

I realise that this probably won't happen for a long time but with globalisation and "equalisation", etc, it could probably happen to some extent sooner than you think!

Just because a person disapproves of an interacial relationship does not make them a racist. I personally think there is NOTHING wrong with a relationship like this. However, if a parent has a white daughter that dates a black boy or vise versa and they are entertaining marraige, the parents should tell them that even though there is truly nothing wrong with her relationship other people in the world will think there is. She will run into people that call her and her husband certain names and not to mention the shit their kids will go through being biracial and all. that is the only valid reason anyone should ever be against a multi-racial relationship. But warning there daughter or son or friend etc. about not the possibilities but the certainties of the treatment they will undergo in a relatinship like this does NOT make them a racist.

Side: No

Ok, so let me get this straight. It is ok to be a racist and be against multi-racial dating because you are protecting someone from the other racists who believe that stuff.

Side: yes

Not necessarily, although they could be and most of the time they are, this is not always the case.
