In media today, families are made to look incredibly similar, which sort of messes with our perception of them. We're taught from a very young age that families should be compromised of people of the same colour, because it's tradition. I remember when I was a child, I actually thought it was illegal for people with different hair and skin colour to get married, because my parents look so similar.
There are still some people, though, that just stubbornly hold on to their racist outlook on life, and firmly believe that whites and blacks should marry within their own ethnic groups, as with all ethnicities. It's just a fact of life; there are always going to be people that disagree with something
I have mixed feelings about this. I grew up in a time when blacks stayed with black and white stayed with whites. Sometimes, I heard grown-ups use the "n" word. I guess that sort of in fluenences my feelings about interracial relationships. I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing, there is still alot of animosity between the black and white races. I guess my main beef wod be : " political correctness". White people better be careful what they say or they'll be sued. Blacks can call whites "honkies" anywhere, anytime, and that's ok. Some blacks still think they are being discriminated against. In some cases, that may true. However, whites get discriminated against too. I don't hate any race. Just saying, interracial relationships can be problematic.
