My asian fiancée and I will be lowering the median income for Asian-White marriages soon. Sure, she'll be a doctor, but I'll still be a poor teacher.

Sorry to say it but for the most part interracial couples tend to make good looking kids (depending of course on the mix).

His mother was white. His father was absent. He was raised by white folks. I say he's white.

Yay! More gene mingling!

I assume that's good? Right? I hear mixing around gene pools can be a very good thing for a species.

It's miscegenation. That's what it is, and it's an affront to good, white, Christian values. Ought to be a law against it.

I'd love to marry inter-racially. White people are kinda gross, when you think about it. They're like those fish living in caves with no pigment in their skin.

Medium brown is definitely the sexiest skin-tone.

Those women in the mass marriage pic do not look happy. I always wondered how they got a bunch of couples to show for those. I guess "do not have enough money for a wedding" would explain it, or "was just going to go to the courthouse anyway".

Not mocking, just kinda pondering out loud.

Sad, but in a way, not so much.

I get nervous when a society seems to be all in agreement on what is right. Dissent can spur change, and it can also highlight a need to not change something.Really, it's only a problem when either A) People turn violent when society disagrees with them or B) People get the government involved.

You must really be appreciating the members of the GOP willing to take the hard road and point out that rape is OK as long as you don't get raped to excess.

still for the life of me cannot figure out why when one parent is white and one is of any other race, that the children are thought of as the other race, and not white.

is it because we use white as the standard?
 
2012-02-16 09:17:42 AM
It never really occurred to me to even think of my marriage as interracial. Race just isn't something I think about when evaluating people in my life.

I wish many of such racial analysis still included Jews as a race.

Of Jews I know (socialize with or through work - all of them being college educated) around half are in mixed marriages. This perception could be way off because more traditional Jews probably would avoid socializing with me.

One way to define the disputed term "race" is just as a semi-closed breeding population with some metric of how much marriage and reproduction occurs outside of the group. Some might consider this definition good or bad because it allows "medical professionals in the US" to be called a race - medical professionals are more likely to marry medical professionals than are members of the general population and their children are more likely to become members of the profession than the general population.

Race does not exist. Other than a self-declared sociological 'here I belong' category, that is. Measuring a difference in race between two people tying the knot is like measuring a difference in their preference for cheese.

"But America still has a long way to go."

I hate statements like this. What the hell does that even mean? What's an acceptable non-interracial marriage rate? I guess I'll have to go trade my white wife in for a Puerto-Rican chick, lest I continue to go around being such an unwitting bigot...

Tyrosine: Since when was "Hispanic" a race?


Since it became clear that "half-breed Injun" wasn't going to get a very positive response to the census. Hispanic is code for mestizo. It pulls in Spaniards and Argentinean Germans for no good reason, but how many of them live in the US of A?

/The whole concept of race is stupid and unscientific, if slightly less stupid and unscientific than it was when Europeans were thought to be of multiple "races."

My wife likes American and colby jack, I'm prefer aged white cheddar or feta. Clearly this makes our marriage unsuitable.

Read up on the history of white supremacy in America. It's not exactly the same thing as racism. And yes, it's because we used white as the benchmark for "normal." This, fortunately, is fading away.

A white man looking to marry up should look for a black wife.

There aren't many good quality black men, and many of those look for white women.

Should make for a real buyers market.

Last time I checked Judaism was a religion not a race. Especially in the north eastern US, its sad that being Jewish is more of a status symbol than an exercise in religion (there are exceptions of course). Hold up a picture of a Jewish person to someone and ask what race they are and the answer will be "white", not Jewish.
