What can I say? I love controversy So obviously interracial relationships have made great strides over the last 20 years, and is widely accepted, but there is some resistance still in certain areas. And I'm speaking of course, not only of black and white, but hispanic, asian, native american-whatever race. I grew up in the midwest united states where there are primarily only black and white. Now I've relocated to California which is a great big melting pot of people. You name it, they got it. I honestly know more asian people since moving here than white people. Mostly due to my friend being engorged in the Japanese community. Now it the midwest it was rare to see an interracial couple. But they did exist. However since coming to Cali, I've noticed a great deal more interracial couples, and it is very commonplance. My close friend, who is half american half palestinian, recently married a japanese woman(you'll never meet a nicer woman-honestly). I myself am currently engaged to an asian woman. I find that it's not at all unusual in Los Angeles, but I feel if I were to abscond back to the midewest, we'd be met by hostility and racism. So what are the current views? And I'm also speaking to non-caucasians as well. What are the views on dating outside of your racde? On marriage outside of your race? My friend's japanese wife was none to eager to inform her father that she'd married an american. feel free free to talk amongst yourselves, I'm feeling a little flaklempt.
