My two cents: I have found this topic rather interesting. I am Korean-American and adopted. My parents are both white, and this has taught me that skin color doesn't matter. Although my skin may be different, my cultural identity is American. I'd also like to point out that interracial dating has yet to be fully accepted in America, especially dating between blacks and whites. In my experience, no one has ever thought my dating a white person to be wrong or strange. Perhaps this is because my skin color is basically white. (It's a little more yellow.) Maybe this is because Americans tend to stereotype Asian people a certain way. Sometimes I feel that guys don't want to date me because of my race or that people immediately assume that I don't speak English because I'm not white. The truth is that you will meet people who are less accepting no matter where you go. I think interracial dating is perfectly acceptable. Many agree; many disagree. I have to agree with those who have said that cultural practices are the bigger issue in these relationships. When others see people of other races, they make assumptions about their cultural practices before they know those practices. I think that when people who are unaccustomed to contact with people of other races see those people, they make judgments about culture --whether it is a conscious judgment or not, and often times these judgments make other racial groups' practices seem strange, immoral, or totally unacceptable.
