@solomonlike it looks like we're going to have to agree to disagree. I would continue this but at this rate, we'll be on this argument until 2017. I still by my statements regarding EXPERIENCE which I may add you never quoted, but tomato or tomatoe. No right or wrong. Just opinion and interpretation.

(Wow! I don't really see or hear about Interracial couples that old. Thank you for sharing this story!)

Yeah, IR marriages were actually legal in the late 1800s/early 1900s in my home state, Massachusetts. I'm not sure when the laws were passed in other states, perhaps it happened a lot later in the South...not quite sure.

(I still by my statements regarding EXPERIENCE.)

Totally agree with you ;)

There are some cases of people who distance themselves from their family for a person they love. Not everyone follows that example.

Most do though and you are setting yourself up for a world of hurt if you hold out hope that someone is actually going to abandon their family,their blood, for a boyfriend/girlfriend. Hell most people wont even get rid of their pets for their never mind their family. I've been down this road. Eventually they give into their family. Who wants to give up their blood in a world where relationships don't last and marriages fail all the time.

It takes person with a very strong will to go against the grain.

Ok! I didn't know that! Interesting. In way it doesn't surprise since Massachusetts was one of the stops for the underground railroad. BTW, I'm from MA as well. Feel free to email me, if you like.

I don't even think it's about race, it's more about people just being selfish. A lot of people spend their whole life being miserable and they want you to be miserable. Her family would resent her just as much if she brought home a white man, a green man, a purple man. It's just easier to make a deragatory comment about a person of a different race. It is just one more added factor, not much different than how could you like someone that fat or that ugly or that poor. These so called racist people would think you were the cream of the crop if you walked in and said this house is kind of small for your family, I would like to buy you a house, here's the money, do what you want with it. No one whom would care about anyone but themselves would even care.
