I'm the result of an interracial marriage (as is my mother and grandfather), so I don't really have a problem with it. It's definitely become less of an issue in the States, especially where I live but I reckon that's not the case in other parts of the world.


It's mostly a problem in towns and cities like where I live. My family gets double taked a lot in my hometown, but if we go to southern California for the weekend people don't even seem to notice. I really hate my town...but I know that some cities are ten times worse then where I live, so I'm also thankful.


I'm sorry that you have to deal with people's ignorance. I live in Northern California, in the Bay Area where the population is very diverse. What ethnicitie(s) are you, if I may ask?

I am black and white (African American and French Canadian to be more specific lol), and I have noticed that Northern California is more diverse...that's why I like going there a lot lol. I want to move to Seattle Washington one day. The atmosphere is just amazing and people there just seem more open.

Oh, that's cool. What would you want to do over there?

(I'm Mexican from my dad's side and Filipino, black, and Cherokee from my mom's side, by the way.)

Well...since I don't have much money...I would probably look into buying a studio apartment and work on my writing. I'd get a suitable job that would pay rent, and I would save a little on the side for my art supplies (I love painting)...I should probably have a plan B though. It's just my favorite cities...not to mention it's the birth place of one of my favorite genres of music...grunge rock!

Thanks!
It varies really. Sometimes I'm working on a fantasy project, and sometimes I come up with an idea and I jot it down in the form of a poem. My poems aren't always that good, but whatever lol. At the moment, I'm working with a publisher/editor in getting a kind of ecletic piece (I call it eclectic, because I don't know what genre to put it under lol).

"Hm. I personally haven't witnessed much controversy about dating outside your race among those I know. I do know it exists, though I suppose I'm fortunate to live in an area where it is accepted (at least, to my knowledge). My uncle and aunt are an interracial couple. He's white, from MA. She's black, from Belize.

I do know one friend, she's Chinese, and her parents will not let her marry someone who is not Chinese. They wouldn't tolerate it if she decided to marry an Asian boy, he'd have to be Chinese.

I had a friend whose parents were like that too. She was Indian, and her father wouldn't tolerate it if she married a man who was not Indian. In cases like that, I don't think it's racism...but rather old fashioned. I'm sure if my friend married outside of her race, he wouldn't like it at first but he would soon accept it.

EDIT: ...and he never showed any hatred towards different races.

"Oh, I have to completely disagree. Perhaps you could clarify what is considered "old fashioned" and racist? There's degrees of racism. I completely believe if someone excludes a possible in-law from the family based on their race- it's racist. Not saying they're a KKK member, but it's racist- just not so overt. Saying that's old-fashioned is like saying it's acceptable for the elderly to go around saying the "n-word" and not allowing the LGBTQI community to not marry due to "old-fashioned values.""

No, no, no...you don't understand. I seriously DON'T think that he would exclude the possible in-law. I honestly don't. When I say old fashioned I mean he is not used to having a family member of a different race...maybe old fashioned was not the proper term. I don't think her father would like it in the beginning, but I really do believe that he would get used to it after sometime. I believe this, because he was always kind to me and my family who is VERY diverse.

Ik how that is. My daddy's like why dont you listen to normal black people music cuz i listen to Orianthi, Paramore, Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson and Evanescence, but im like watevs daddy. You have you're musical preferences and I have mine. Frankly alot of the rap music today sucks freaken balls, like seriously. Its not how it used to be. Its hardly ever worth buying.

I miss rap like Run DMC and Grand Master Flash. That was good rap.
I usually listen to 90's alternative, but I like a lot of today's artists as well. I've recently fallen in love with Nirvana's music...it's so brilliant. I wish Cobain hadn't killed himself...
