I know that during apartheid it was illegal. How do people feel about it now in South Africa? Are there many mixed marrigaes now that it's legal?
Don't ask me,
I live in America too!!
Word is bond, I've met more AMERICANS on this "SouthAfrican" site than the South AFricans I registered just to meet!
Anyway, I don't think interracial marriages are a big deal. I know religious people who are mixed-race couples, and I don't know a single religious person who disapproves of interracial marriage (except there are some radicals, but they don't represent the mainstream.)
My church, my faith, and my friends have NOTHING against interracial marriage.
I've heard plenty of Christian preacher (usually white men) who preach that interracial marriages are a sin and condemnable.
I don't think MOST Christians believe this but too often the ministers who DO believe this use their authority as ministers to promote their racist agendaz.
It's interesting that it's usually white women marry black men, not the other way around. I think it's becuase we perceive dark men as powerful, and we're attracted to that.
Well in the Midwest, where I live, it IS the other way around for most cases.
For the last 10 years, most black\white unions in marriage involves a white man and a black woman.
Black men in America (more so than any other nation) are being destroyed and made to be the most undesirable of all creatures in this nation so many black women are looking for alternatives.
I'll be honest with you MK, I truly believe that a man and woman who loves one-another should have a right to marry eachother and live together in happiness regardless of each's race, color, heritage, culture, nationality or any other petty bondaries.
But a lot of white men don't wanna play by those rules.
Most don't want the playing-field to be equal for some reason.
I think most women are naturally attracted to dark skin because like you said...it represents power and virility.
Even when white boys go through puberty..they lose that pale "rosey" complexion and become darker and more rugged for the attraction of females.
But I think a lot of it stems from sexual "supression".
A lot of white women are KEPT away and "SHIELDED" from black men so much that they become extremely curious as to what they're being denied
The reason I thought you might have been from Europe is because I've never heard a white female from the States state her beliefs as obvious as you.
Not in real life nor the internet.
Most either avoid the issue or speak against it, so when I heard how frank and open you are....I said,
"This girl CAN'T be from America".
Most white women in America have been trained not to say what they really think about black men.
But judging by the way so many AfroAmericans are starting to oppose interracial relationships for reasons I have yet to understand.....I wouldn't be suprised if Interracial Marriages are made illegal HERE IN AMERICA in the comming years.
You have a lot of AfroAmericans...especially the women...who are vehemently opposed to interracial relationships and are VERY VOCAL about it.
