I asked him what he would rather have for a son in law-a really fine young black man, or a drunken slob who was white.

When he thought about it in those terms, he realized that race wasn’t all that important.

While I am not in an interacial marriage, I was open to the idea of dating other races (just worked out that the man I married is the same race).

But I remember having a conversation about it with my father-who was born before WWII, and wasn’t too keen on the concept.

Also, the prohibitions of reace can be much stronger between minorities than between caucasians and minorities.

I think it would be more acceptable to relatives involved for a caucasian – african-american relationship than, lets say, a Asian – african-american.

I surmise that people might be much more approving of interracial dating in the abstract than actually want to date interracially themselves.

If someone feels that obstacles such as familial disapproval, cultural and gender-role differences, and especially for white women, loss of white privilege, will make a relationship fraught with difficulty they may not want to risk it.

Rather like wanting to sail around the world but not being able to quit one’s day job.

I think the acceptance of it is a step in the right direction-first people have to feel comfortable with the concept before they are going to be involved in it themselves.

Twentysomething brides and grooms are typically more accepting of interracial relationships than their parents.

When the Pew Research Center in Washington began polling Americans about their attitudes toward interracial dating in 1987, only 48% of the public approved.

I say give it another generation, and interacial dating/marriages will probably be very common, as the generations most uncomfortable with it die off.
