1. yes.
2. yes.
3. yes.
4. i am organized religion-free. but i do have a sense of spirituality (esp. when playing the lotto :p) and i believe (and hoping) that we, all of humankind are at a phase where everyone will come together. well...we're definitely getting closer to it in the grand scheme of things. i would like to believe that people find people that compliments them regardless of the mumbo-jumbo of race/religion/blah blah blah. one race...the human race...while respecting & honouring the differences.

1. Yes. I'm not interested in people based on race, it's whoever I happen to be attracted to.
2. Yes, and I have. My first "real" boyfriend was Vietnamese, and I'm white.
3. The abovementioned boyfriend was the only person I've been with of another race...my friends were totally fine with it. My parents liked him but I think my mom felt sort of weird about it, and I'm not sure how it would have gone over had we lasted and I introduced him to the rest of the family. My brother lives in Japan and last time he came over he brought his girlfriend and my family was really nice to her so I'm not sure. I think it's the older generation (like my grandmother) that just go along with it but not necessarily approve.
4. I have no real religious/cultural beliefs. I wasn't brought up in a religious household, and then my parents became Buddhists a few years ago (yes, my grandmother is dismayed). I was brought up as Canadian in a multicultural society so I don't really "notice" racial or religious differences, unless someone else makes them an issue.

I think women in general are attractive no matter what race... being a caucasion male some other races have a bit of a sexual mystique to them.

I lived with a black woman for 6 years and experienced some of the most embarrasing racial slurs and ignorances one could ever imagine. My family was very supportive in general but people we didn't even know were the ignorant ones. From staring to comments we saw it all!

During a visit to Fairview mall in Scarborough in January a few years back a lady actually slowed her car to a stop in front of us to roll down her window and call my girlfriend a "house nigger". At the time the comment was bad enough... to make matters worse this lady had a car full of children who also had to be witness to this.

Personally I found the reactions/responses from the black community to be far harsher than that of the white community. I think white people were more worried about be labelled racist and kept their commnents to themselves or at least behind closed doors.

I support the union of all races!
Several hundred years from now (actual time may vary), we'll all be one colour.

Lets get started!

me too. but there seems to be a re-occuring pattern with me because since I was 16 all the guys I have dated were black. Attractive men come in all different races, but I think that's just my preference anyways....

Although I have been known to have crushes on the occasional white boy;)

i'm a canadian-born eastern european jewish girl (does that makes any sense?)
my boyfriend is a non-practicing catholic vietnamese boy.

all of our friends are cool with it. however, i have gotten some really shitty responses from people from my jewish community. this one girl, after finding out that i had been attending UWO, said "you go to Western and you couldn't find yourself a Jew?"

my parents have been the worst. they outright ignore that my brother and i are dating non-Jews. it makes no difference that our partners are kind, intelligent, ambitious and like-minded people.

my brother and i have been forced to make this really, really shitty choice. do we want to live an 'easy' life, with all the benefits of family acceptance? do we want to choose a partner who will understand our beliefs, our culture, our observances, heck, even our cuisine? do we want to settle down with a person who will have the same outlook on family, community, child-rearing etc.
or do we want to experience everything life has to offer? choose a person because they are right for me, as a human, as a woman, not only as a Jew.

i know that if my brother or i decided to marry our current non-Jewish partners, our parents would be devastated. they're the ones who would have to put up with all the questions from relatives and members of their synagogue. but whats worse, is the silence. the silence that comes when someone says "oh, so she met a nice Jewish boy in Toronto?" and my mom says "No."
the silence.
the silence that assumes failure. that somehow with all the hebrew school, shabbat dinners, saturday mornings at synagogue, summers spent at jewish sleepaway camp, that somehow they still managed to fuck it all up.

and thats what i dont know if i can live with.

you may think i'm overreacting, but as far as my parents are concerned, i will be bringing shame to them. and thats something i never wanted to do.

That's exactly Micheal Moore's philosophy.

And a smart one at that too.

I think we're comfortably at a point now in Toronto where race is a non-factor in most situations, people who do make it an issue are in the very small minority and their actions are generally frowned upon by those around them.

I've always had a thing for black women but never made a real effort, I'll admit the attitude stereotype kinda scares me...
Recently met a very sexy filipino (sp?) girl but am currently involved so can't do anything about it...still fantasies keep popping up...

sure hope you're kidding - cuteness and arguments have no correlation....Having mostly dated Asian girls and argued with all of them at one point or another I can assure you they're regular folk and not docile geishas

a more serious issue is inter-hair-color dating.

a person's race means nothing to me, but hair color - that's another topic entirely!

I like mixing it up blonde (spinning girl), brunette (art student girl), russian (another blonde girl), redhead (literature degree girl), even a long time ago a pink streaked girl (retro girl)....

1. Yes
2. Yes, it's not about race, it's about Beautiful people.
3. I've never had the 3rd degree, but I never really cared for what other people though
4. I'm an athiast through and through

My parents are of different races, my father of Lebanese Muslim decent, and my mother of Polish Catholic decent. My parents had to elope for my fathers family didn't accept my mother. To escape all the criticism, my parents moved to Canada, where they live a happy life together and love eachother greatly.

Even to this day, people ask me why my name is Karim because I have very light colored skin, blonde hair and blue eyes, and I tell them about how my parents are an Inter-Racial couple. I don't mind saying this, I am actually proud that my parents let love conquer all, but it pisses me off when I see bad reactions come out of the people I tell. So many people say "Woah, that's one hell of a wierd mix", as if mixing is a terrible bad thing.

I'm pro Inter-Racial dating and I wish more people were too....

cool thread

Yes, I'm attracted to all races.

I am dating someone of the opposite race! And I say that, because China is pretty much on the other side of the earth.

Marcia's family is from Hong Kong, and they moved here when Marcia’s mom and Aunts were teenagers. They're not super religious but the call themselves Buddhist. I have never met a more open-minded Chinese family. I’ve had other Chinese friends and their parents were racist toward white Canadian’s and westerners in general. It took years before Sunny’s family got used to me. I was the only person (meaning white) allowed in the house. Haha! Needless to say, I got very close to his mother, despite the language barrier. And to this day it doesn’t bother me that they call me “ghost girl” bcuz I know they love me!

Not only did we have to deal with an interracial relationship, we had to deal with the same sex relationship issue as well. And let me tell you, the Asian community is quite behind when it comes to gay rights. It’s culturally not accepted by the old school Chinese. When we are in Chinese areas of the city we aren’t affectionate, encase Marcia gets attacted by some crazy old lady. Loll

Marcia’s mom has known from day one, and she’s been amazing. Marcia thinks she thinks this is a just a stage she’s going through, but we think as the months go by she’s realizing it isn’t. anyway.. Her mom and I get along famously! We cook, eat, shop, and make fun of Marcia together. We are allowed to sleep together in the same bed every night (if I was a boy.. that would so not be the case! Yen vagina!) I even love her aunt. One thing that really surprised me was Marcia’s grandparents knew about us!!!! And they are soooooo sweet to me! They think I’m pretty! Here


So I find I’m very very lucky, I get all the benefits of being with a Chinese family, and none of the downfalls. My experience with interracial relationships has been amazing! I love her family and I want them in my life for a very.. very long time J


Holy ish this is long! BABBLE INSIDE!

that's cool...still not sure what that has to do with race though..
I think a lot of relationships are like that at the beginning when you're in that phase you feel like "I can never see myself getting into an argument with this person".
And then things change.
