    Some of the tiffs, stereotypes and misunderstandings are kind of funny.

    there are a lot of interracial couples and between any ethnicity, race and gender combo these days so i think racism is dwindling overall. This is very evident especially in major metropolitan areas but it's becoming more common anywhere as well as overseas. this is because the world is more mobile and international today than it was ever before.

    interracial - An adjectival citizen of the race concept which denotes a mix or merger of different sub-categories in the human population. Currently the race concept disavows its legitimacy (i.e., a fictional historical concoction or outmoded prescriptive invention). While nevertheless paradoxically continuing to assert its distinction-making potence with declared "valid" instantiations of racial diversity or lack of; racial bias / bigotry / inequality / injustice; personal membership in group identities signifying themselves with racial labels; the occurrence of interracial relationships, etc.

    I understand her point of view in that cavemen types are not attractive. The type of males she describes with dislike exist in all races and cultures. what she is mostly referring to is a newer generation that is less patriarchal and sexist than prior generations and younger Asian males are amazingly egalitarian and non-sexist than prior generations but also chivalrous and responsible so they are viewed as a good catch for younger females.

    But what differs is I find Slavic men attractive because they seem more humble than many american men. It's also exotic to me so what is different from you may incite more inquisitiveness because you learn more about the world, other cultures and different points of view. It's the nuances of different cultures and those deep roots which are fascinating and lend different perspectives/soul. It's enriching, enlightening and it is like opening up undiscovered pockets of different perspectives within your own consciousness.

    The heart wants what the heart wants.
    Why care about someone else's heart?

    I didn't know we used the word "interracial", anymore, outside pornography and the South. Around here, "interracial couples" are called "couples".

    duh? for the purpose of discussing issues related to race though you do. hello?

    and you can stop feigning that race, ethnicity and culture differences don't exist. just like food is food but there is different types of food such as Chinese, American, Cajun, Italian, mexican etc.

    noting and recognizing that a couple is interracial isn't racist just because in day to day real life, a couple is a couple and race is not the issue nor to most others unless they are racist.
