Someone mentioned that interracial couples were "not natural". Where did they come up with that one?

Unnatural relationships are those of the same sex (homosexuals and lesbians) and God Himself condemns this.

I would marry a man of another color IF he's for me and would be more concerned with our future happiness.

I've dated white men in the past and will continue to do so. I don't focus on the color of a man's skin, but more on his character.

And for those who are anti-IR, the best thing to do is to get over it. Some things you can't change.

I don't advocate that one should avidly pursue someone of another race, but to pursue love and happiness. If my son or daughter brings home a white woman or a white man, I would not be upset, just as long as it's someone of the opposite sex.

intersting, not saying that interracial couples are unnatural or anything but can you invest the time in explaining something to him or her when a ni### moment come up like racial profiling, glass ceilings the civil rights movement or affirmative action and wsp-white skin privilege? And can you stand the reply of 'manifest' destiny, individualism, raising yourself by your own bootstrap and the classic-get over it?

As a Christian, I am told by God to not bear hatred for anyone. And in God's view, there is no race superior over the other. We know that man has dominated man, in our case, whites have dominated us.

My view today is that I have no fear of man and the white people do not dominate me. I cower NOT to them or any man or woman.

And I still say that if a person does not like to see interracial couples, basically there is nothing he or she can do about it. If this is not your "cup of tea", don't drink it.

I'm not for same sex couples, but I don't try to harm those who are involved in that situation. I will never agree with it, but in life, we all have choices.

God warned us to avoid those who are non-believers. Nowhere in the bible does it indicate that we cannot be involved with people of a different skin color. As for me, I would not want to be involved with a Muslim man or any man who was not a born-again Christian, even if the Muslim man was of my race.

Hi Flojo. We all have some different racial mixtures in us. What I am wondering, is your racial makeup predominately races other than black, and so your family went along with the one drop "rule"? Or did they go along with it because you're mostly black, with some other races mixed in?

Unfortunately, I don't know which is dominant. African American and American Indian I am told. They"went along" with the one drop rule because so many of my ancestors were made to, I guess. And noone wanted to 'ignore' one race, and claim the other because of what the other race would say or think or do. In my case, I would just like to be one or the other, and from where I am standing, neither is better. If I go out with a white man, I'm tryin to be white. If I go out with a black man... his friends, acquaintances, family will just view me as another white girl. Why does it matter which race is predominant? I am a Good person, reguardless.

Hello:

My husband is black. We tell our children they're black, although I am not.

This has been hard on my husband and I, but I have no regrets. I just pray society will accept our children based on the content of their characters and not the relationship between their father and myself.

Thank you

Flojo, you could be any race and be a great person...goes without saying in my book. I just wasn't clear on that point, so I asked, no other way to get the answer that I know of, and I don't like to assume. And also, I know what it is to be black but look like a lot of other things to some people. I don't know what it is to be biracial, or to have pretty much an equal mix of races within me. But, I know what it is to be treated differently and not accepted by some because of appearances.....on this we feel the same. All parts of you are acceptable in the eyes of God, all other eyes take a back seat. Those that matter will accept it all and it take it in stride. Those that don't can take a ride.

Mixing with mutated beings is unnatural. True some whites do have melanin, or what is called the black dot. However. If you see no problem having a family with a modern cave man go right ahead.

I have a bone to pick with blacks who wanna be color blind but can't walk down the street or in Macy's without YT wondering, "if this Niggahh is gonna rob us"

Black people who want to integrate have given up on their race, that's my strong humble opinion.

WHat is appalling to me is that the same intergrationist will come on a black board created by a black woman and try to convince us to "cross over" if intergration is so good for us, why has it done nothing but creat a caste society the world over?

I think if we tried even 1/1,000,000th as hard to embrace those of our own culture as we do to keep our arms, homes, beds, minds etc. open to other cultures, we could have a good chance at escaping our modern day bondage. That of the Psyche.

Sekhemu, you are erroneously making false accusations here. Nobody is advocating that YOU or anyone here go with someone of another race.

And I stick 100% by what I said! I am tired of the hatred.

And where do you come from, referring to a person as a "mutant"? I find it so ignorant that many black folks like you get into this "melanin junk". When you handle your functions in the bathroom, you stink just like anyone else. When you cut yourself, your blood is red like anyone else.

I'm glad to be a Christian because I don't deal with the hatred towards others. In my life I've had more strife with black people. It's always been jealousy, hatred, etc. As for white people, they hold no power over me. I've never feared them and if I have to get into a confrontation with any of them, I handle it.

You have proven to be the "cave man" here with your mentality. Just accept the fact that you have no power over relationships. You have no power to stop interracial dating or marriage. The only power you have is the choice not to get involved with someone of another race.

But you know what? I see all of this hateful talk as one of the "signs of the end". There is more hatred towards people now more than ever. And you are a part of the hatred. What will it profit you?

When you go to the hospital or doctor for sickness, do you request a black person to wait on you? I bet when you are in pain, you could care less about who handles you.

That's why I never allowed my children to associate with NOI people because of their hatred towards white people. You sound like one of them. I do not collaborate with too many Muslims because of their hatred towards others.

Right now, I am not dating anyone. And I will date or marry a man of any race, as long as he is a Christian. I would never date or marry a non-Christian, that is, a Muslim, Jew, Hindu, Mormon, etc.

I don't know if you've read the bible, but God didn't want His people to associate with the people of the land, in other words, those who didn't worship Him. And that's why Christians should obey the command about "not becoming unequally yoked". It is based on WHO you worship. If you are a Muslim, you worship Allah. He is NOT my God; my Father's name is Jehovah and His Son is Jesus Christ.

If this angered you, I do not apologize. And you quoted me as saying that I do not advocate interracial relationships, so why are you hollering like I'm coming in here to advocate it?

My heart grieves for the hatred you and others like you show towards people who haven't done anything to you. Like one white guy said, "Why do I have to be hated for what my ancestors did when I didn't do it?"

What if the parents of the young lady who was brutually raped and murdered by a black man in Philly publicly stated that they hated all black men because of what happened to their daughter?

We cannot change the past. Today I am not a slave. I don't know what it means to be a slave, because as a Christian, we are free. Anyone who continues in sin and error are SLAVES. If you are hooked on cigarettes, alcohol and illegal drugs, you are a SLAVE to those things. If you are hooked on pornography, you are a slave to it. And these things you are enslaved to will eventually destroy you. You are enslaved to hatred.

Get used to it...non-black citizens are here to stay. Like roaches, they will multiply and you can't exterminate them. We see what Hitler tried to do, but he didn't succeed. White people cannot eliminate non-white people either.

In this cold bitter weather we are having, if your heat went off, I bet you could care less if a whie man came to repair it. You would probably hug him when the heat comes back on.

I thank God so much for the love in my heart for humans. And I will pray for people like you who don't KNOW Him...for to KNOW God is to KNOW love, not hatred.

Vj or whatever your name is, you have called me out of my name, by your calling me a "cave man". I have made a concerted effort to call no member of this board out of their name. I said white people. Not anyone here in particuliar. And for that, you have made this a personal matter.

Secondly I don't give a darn about who you pray to, or the white image of the man called Jesus, that is found in almost every black church in the country. You wanna take me to task about hate? yeah right, even your own christian god hates, in fact it was this same god that told the jews to kill off the people of canaan so they could take over their land. The whole concept of hate is replete in your pseudo-religious text called the bible. Okay? So go tell your fellow white christians that one. You know... the ones that have no blacks in their congregations.

It's Ironic that you could ramble on about me being hateful, while at the same time have the nerve to post a comment, on a black website no less.... that you are tired of hearing about this melanin junk. Maybe somebody hates their own skin? You obviously know little if nothing about all about melanin and it's role in history. Try reading Count Volney or Frances Cress Welsing.

I don't pray to the god of the conquerors of my ancestors, if you want to do so... be my quest. To be honest, if the white race disappeared from this planet I would probably stand up and cheer. I'm sure the majority of them would not be missed

So before you go throwing the H word around, check your own so called religion.

But I ain't mad atcha. Peace

If you love all people then that's your little red wagon. I don't I love black people, even the ones that are misguided. And I will never let anyone, especially convince that this caucasian is a mutant. There is documentation to back this up, and not something I was taught by a muslim. If you don't like what I post here, guess what? Too Bad. nothing you can do about it
I thank God so much for the love in my heart for humans. And I will pray for people like you who don't KNOW Him...for to KNOW God is to KNOW love, not hatred.
