A very interesting interview. Worth seeing the whole thing. Always interesting to me how some people pretend the problem is not them, they are just worried for the children.
I watched this and found it to be very interesting. Funny how these parents thought their own kids would answer a certain way……..but then the kids surprised them. Yes indeed, quite interesting.
Indeed. Would be interesting to hear how your kids would answer the question considering the difference in how you see it and their Dad.

[…] Difference In Attitudes on Mixed Dating Between Kids and Parents Posted on April 6, 2012 by Cdn Stormlover Reblogged from No More Race: […]
As the child of an interracial couple, it took me a long time to figure out where I belonged. It wasn’t until I grew up that I realized that I’m the only one who can define or limit myself.
Reblogged this on justjacqui2.
I am a white parent of a black step-son and also the parent of four bi-racial children. I also wrote a blog post on this study because it bothers me that my older son always prefers white girls and I question if I’ve done something subconsciously to cause this. I also faced this from my own parents when I married my husband who is not of the same race. It’s a very interesting study and an important topic.
Hi Keri. Thanks for reading. Indeed it is interesting for my wife and I as well (my wife is Mexican-American and I am Black). Our 15 year old son is dating and so far has shown to be open to different ethnicities, having dated an Asian girl and two White ones. Our concern however is because the school he is in, though it has a lot of Mixed kids, does not have many Hispanic or Black girls, so we hope he does show an interest in those girls as well. Right now, he seems to base his decisions on girls he feels he can relate to, and not on ethnicity, but we’ll see. But our concern is that by having him in a suburban school we have already limited his choices. We hope not.
Best of luck to you.
