    Re: Race

    Having preference such as race in terms of who you would wish to marry is no different than having a preference in haircolor, or body type. I myself could never see myself dating many races. There are some skin colors and racially defined body differences which I simply am not attracted to.

    Much like I am not in the least attracted to thin girls.

    even if they seem ok with it, deeply they will be disapointed and hurt by this decision.

    it sucks, but its true.
    But that could happen with any relationship, not just interracial ^^;

    That's probably one of the most honest answers I've heard. And you know, it's an interesting take. Looking at race as just a "physical aspect". Interesting...

    Re: Race

    I'd say race bothers the least of all (though physical traits only count if your interested to have more than friendship...like in any situation and any person you meet, as frr_vegeta said above).

    Religion is slightly more bothersome in some cases.

    Culture and your way of life is quite important.

    Being yourself and being true to yourself is what counts most, though it's just putting more accent on your way of life, though more personal.


    So in short, the race does change something, but it doesn't stop anyone from learning the same things than the person next to him/her and no matter where your from, with the right learning tools, good people and personal willingness, anyone can grow up equal in every fashion (unless you get some kind of sickness because the environment or have mental disabilities, though this has nothing to do with race).

    Things that change these factors are religion to a certain point, the culture surrounding you that has no choice to influence you partially or quite a lot and finally, who you are, your personality and who resides under your skin.

    Re: Race

    I think hating someone because of their race is so wrong... just because they are differn't doesn't mean they don't act the same or think the same.

    THE RULES!

    I'm on my grind in search to find whats on my mind, its one of a kind!

    i still think they do. i think race shouldn't be important but i know that it is and i see everyday every where. i think we do put them together because we are scared to find out about the others just because one did. we don't feel like seeing what the others are about.i feel like i can't please just any other them because of what i am and who i am.i just want to be accpected. mixed people....i feel like we all feel the same trying to fit in and be wanted.

    Well in my country Malaysia, I live with many people with different ethnics, cultures, religions, etc. No discrimination here! Let's say your dad's a Chinese man and your mum's an Indian woman. How did they get to be together if there's no respect, love, understanding, toleration(etc) between them? SOo now we know that morale values should be taken seriously. People who is well educated will learn how to respect others race. So I'm open to all people^__^ I'm proud to be apart of Malaysian ppl
    Carve an amble now,
    Saying that the day's still bright,
    And let's play with time.

    Re: Race

    no i dont think it should matter what if u like a person that is a different race but yet for some reason some ppl think like that. i also think that, well in America, u still have this small like of segregation going on with they way ppl act saying mean things and i dont think that that is such a good thing. u know if we really wanted to help society and the way we live we should not drag on what race someone is

    Re: Race

    Racism stinks. But the world cannot go on without it I suppose.

    Me myself,,, It doesn't rightfully matter what race or anything that you are.
    It all depends on your attitude and heart you know?

    I guess you could say its who YOU are not "What" you are.

    Thanks Pyroo. :]
