I don't see why some people get all fussy about the mere concept. So, what, their skin or your accent or whatever is different, so that's automatically Code Red or something? I say it's completely fine.

Its all the same love, so I really couldn't care. The only situation I'd disapprove of is if one person in the relationship is racist, because it can make the other feel bad/ feel like they are only being used for their body. Other than that, I think its as sweet as any other love!

I don't see what's wrong with it. Just because you look different, doesn't mean ypu're different on the inside.

I don't see the problem with them at all. I was in one and so many people made negative comments about it, but whatever. Love is blind.

I feel that as long as being "color blind" isn't the focus, they're great. (Well, I actually don't have the jurisdiction to say even that - let's just say they're fine. Period.)
 I do hate seeing "color blind" interracial couples, though - color is great! Color exists! You dont have to ingore someone's race ("I don't see color") to love them.

there is nothing wrong with it, my family is pure white, but it doesn't matter. My oldest brother may be the first to mix in our family because he is attracted to black girls. My Dad makes side comments about it, but he's not racist, he just can't see how one can be attracted to an oppisite race. Being my family and I(my family a few generations back where wealthy slave owners) are from Texas and now living in Minnesota makes a huge effect on why my Dad thinks this way.

Well, I personally, think that interracial couples are cute. I believe if you love someone it doesn't matter what skin color they are. I've been attracted to just about every race. Black, white, Asian, Hispanic. The list goes on... The person I actually like now is also white and I'm black...

I support interracial couples!! :D
 
I'm actually in one right now; I'm black while my boyfriend is white, and well, it's actually pretty amazing.
Before we started going out, he had just been dumped by someone completely opposite to me. She was white, had long blonde hair and bright blue eyes, and she was pretty small. She was a cheerleader too. Kinda like the typical hot girl in the movies.
I had feelings for him while they were going out and he would always talk about her to me because we were always close friends. I'd support him because that's what friends do. :3
 
But after she dumped him, he was so devastated. At school, he walked around almost like a ghost. It was a good thing she was two years older than us and didn't live in the town we did. That would've made his heartbreak even worse. 
I comforted him and assured him that losing her wasn't the end of the world. We became closer and closer until he was happy again. Over her. And then, we let our feelings show for each other and started going out that fall. (: It's been a little over 10 months and we're even closer now, race not being an issue at all. :3 His family isn't racist towards me, they invite me to dinner, church, to watch Big Brother. x3
And the same goes for him and my family! He was actually over for dinner yesterday, my dad grilled burgers. :3
 
I said all of that to say that race doesn't change what's inside and anyone can find love anywhere. We don't let racist comments make us doubt. 
I think it's so amazing that years ago, I would be considered a slave and he would be my superior, or a possible owner.
Glad to see how far we've come. ^_^

No problems here. It’s the person, not the color of their skin I’m interested in. Granted I live in a predominantly white area, and when I do see an interracial couple I do maybe stare a couple seconds longer than I normally would, but in the end it’s all cool. As long as love is the main focus and not some other motivator, then it sounds good to me.

It can be kind of stupid at times but sometimes it can work ( see The Boondocks comics).

Well, what do you mean by stupid? I'm honestly curious, as all relationships, interracial or not, could end up being "stupid."

I did say it can work, apparently someone skiped the entire second half.

I didn't... You said they can be stupid at times while they can work sometimes. I just dont understand what you mean by stupid, and I was just asking for you to explain. Why do you think they're stupid at times?

I would like to know what you meant too, theheavymetalist. Considering I may be in an interracial relationship soon, I would like to know everyone's opinion on the matter.
