My cousin admitted that before she met her baby's father, she dated a couple of black guys (we're white). I personally didn't think it was that big of a deal, but after hearing how her mom reacted (suffice it to say, it was NOT good), I guess I can understand her reluctance to "confess" this secret.
Would you be upset if your child dated outside your race? Why or why not?
I wouldn't. I hope they'll make healthy relationship choices regardless of the race or gender. This is a hot topic for my husband and I. He doesn't want to see the kids date outside of their race but he's oddly accepting of homosexuality. We're working on it. Thankfully our kids are still toddlers.
As long as the person they are with treat them good and my child is happy then i could care less what color their skin is. I love my kids and all i want is for them to be in a happy and healthy relationship with someone they truly care about.
