God fearing Megan
My parents taught me growing up that your only suppose to date someone the same color as you. My parents aren’t racist but when it comes to dating they always said stick to your own race. but I disagree some of the greatest guys I know are different.

It’s not wrong to date outside of your race. Your parents probably have an outdated ideal from their own time that they don’t realize is wrong and hurtful.

Yeah. I’m mixed white and black and if they didn’t date outside their race, I wouldnt be here. Me and a million other people wouldn’t be here. So no, it’s not a bad thing

Refusing to date someone just because of their race is just because of their race is just as wrong as refusing to hire someone because of their race. It’s racism. And it’s not biblical.

Uhm. Yeah. Your parents are racist.

Slinky’s right, If your sentence starts off with “I’m not racist, but…” It’s definitely racist.

Of course it’s not bad! People are people. The color of your skin doesn’t say any more about what kind of person you are than the color of your eyes or hair. If he’s a believing Christian and you care about and understand each other, that’s really all that matters.

Megan, I’m sorry you are dealing with this issue. It is hard to know what is really right when your own parents are telling you something that you personally do not agree with. I will tell you this, dating outside of your race is NOT a sin. That is a silly as saying “being friends with someone from another city is a sin”. It’s an irrelevant argument. God created us all very different and that’s what makes each and every person beautiful. We are not to judge one another, for anything. The girls above me raise valid points. You can almost guarantee if somebody says “not to sound racist, but….”, they are typically going to say something offensive. I have personally witnessed this happen. I wish you the best of luck. My suggestion to you is, explain to your parents that you believe God commands us to love everybody equally, and even challenge them to show you a place in the Bible that teaches against interracial dating, (spoiler?) they won’t be able to find a single verse. Best of luck! God bless! ~BryannahDawn
