Purple mixed with green is beautiful

Interracial relationships still a challenge for younger generation to accept

Yes, let's go there. Personally, I have no problem with interracial relationships. I think that it's a beautiful thing and that the babies produced (pertaining to straight couples) are beautiful.

Everyone is beautiful, no matter what skin color you have, if your hair is curly, if your hips are wide or if you lips are thin. Everyone is beautiful. Therefore, I don't understand when people look at a mixed child and turn up their noses. Yes, there is that possibility of not "fitting into one world," but in all honesty, it's still a child. It's still beautiful.

Of course interracial doesn't mean just black and white. It means, Black, White, Asian, Hispanic, Middle-Eastern, green, purple, whatever. Racial boundaries should not exist anymore, and yet they do. People tend to focus on others in their own racial group. Looking outside of that still has a bit of a taboo effect on people. They treat it like it's something wrong. But people are people.
Everyone is a person and everyone has the right to love whomever they wish to love. You can't help whom you fall in love with. No one should be forced to feel wrong for that.

In this day and age, race still plays a part in the selection of a better half. I believe that cannot be changed until people change. But sadly, you can't force anyone to change their views or their beliefs. And just as people shouldn't be forced to feel bad about their interracial relationship, no one should be forced to feel bad about their views on dating inside their race.

Everyone has a preference, but everyone should also be respected for that. I see this more in older people that have fought against prejudices and racism. They feel they need to keep their family as pure as possible, and that keeping it to one race would keep their thoughts and beliefs alive. Sadly, they will not live forever. And no one wishes to see those people die, but they will. And I believe these racial lines with die along with them. When people accept and treat everyone with respect, the human race grows. We understand and we learn more about other people. You can't receive, nor give with, a closed fist. And as we move further in our technological world, we must also move further in our acceptance of differences.

So babies produced from same-sex couples are not beautiful ?!
