Anyway, being serious now. I don't have a problem with asians & africans being together. People give them weird looks when they ARE together because you wouldn't expect to see that everyday. If two people love each, (I feel like I'm debating O__O) regardless of their race or status, they should be together. There isn't a law where it says 2 people of certain races, can't be together. Or at least I haven't heard of one.
I made my point =] I am happy, although everyone made theirs before me.

black women are against it too bc the good black men are gone.
I'm not against it. I actually applaude it.
overall, interacial dating is indeed a beauitful thing. it shows that ppl can look pass cultural differences and accept others for who they are and not what they are. (my parents won't accept me dating a black guy though.)
^^ agree. Your parents won't? Why? Is it a tradition thing?

As for Asians dating African Americans, it's not as common, but hey, there's nothing wrong w/ it. I do know some African Americans at our school who don't really go for it and Asians who are totally racist and all stereotypical about African Americans, but....maybe that's just my area. I don't know any Asians w/ African Americans at my school.
But my point is that there is nothing wrong with Asians going out with African Americans. If people can't learn to accept it, it's their loss, not yours.

This is kind of a dumb thread. No one is going to say they have a problem with it and make themselves look like racists. Its a pointless question no is going to bring the animosity the starter wants.
Anyway, there's already an Interracial Dating topic in this forum: http://forums.boajja...showtopic=19146

and to someone that said this above me about no onesaying that there against it. you are sooo terribly mistaken because if you go to solid oh you'll find a couple of people that are very open about them being against interacial dating.
thats it i made my point
BoAjjang is not Solid.
People are different on different forums.
However, I understand what you're saying. I mean, I'd like to believe that the reason no one says "I think interracial relationships are wrong" is because no one on BoAjjang is 'close-minded,' but that's probably not the case. Either they don't want to go to the trouble of opening a can of worms, or explaining their views, or can state them in a way that's not as offensive, like "it's not for me, because I like my own race better; it's better to preserve your own race, etc."
Interracial dating is a plus, for me. I don't like dating most guys of my dominant culture, because most of them dress gangster (& are gangsters, supposedly) at my school. D: But I don't find Asian guys the most attractive either. Then again, does my opinion on interracial dating even matter in this thread? I am neither (full) Asian, nor African American, so.. (& using the term 'African Americans' is kind of limiting the people... haha, just kidding), I don't have any experience on the matter.
My parents have raised me to be open-minded though.
I think they'd actually prefer me to date someone who wasn't Hispanic. =x

The main reason I'm against it is because of fetishes. Especially in Japan, I see Japanese men or women with black fetishes. They want a black boyfriend or girlfriend to quench their thirst... and use them as bragging rights. They often don't care how they treat them or vice versa... and then you have black people with an asian fetish... and it's the same way around. It's just a disgusting reason to be in a relationship.
Now, if they genuinely like each other... ethnicity put aside, then there isn't a problem with them dating. I just hate when it's based solely off of a fetish.
I don't have a problem with it... but, sometimes I will do a double take when I see them... it just looks off... the same thing as if there's an ugly guy or girl dating a good looking girl or guy. It's not based on racism, but rather it's based on asthetics. People tend to stare at things that just seem out of the norm.
