Thumbs down Talk about a hypocrite...

So this girl I was talkin to and had a pretty good time with whenever we hung out suddenly said we can't talk because "I'm too old for her"...mind you I'm 25. That excuse didn't make sense, but I shrugged it off and said whatever. Well, the truth came out the other day...the real reason is, her dad is racist and doesn't approve of her dating anyone "dark". For those of you who don't know, I'm adopted and my real mom was a full blooded white irish lady and my dad was a black guy. Im the product of an affair, and was put up for adoption at birth...but that's not relevant at the moment.

The kicker is, this "man" says he doesnt approve of "inter-racial dating", yet he himself (full blooded white guy) is married to a Korean woman...which makes the girl I was talking to half korean half white. So...number one, isn't this 2011? This ignorance still exists? It's truly sad...number two...what a freakin hypocrite. And number three...what kind of father would rather boost his own ego than care about his daughters happiness? I'm mature, financially stable, honest, dependable and loving, yet I'm not good enough just because I was born a bit darker than white. Really? So, because of that, you'd rather have your daughter sleep with a foreign exchange student from Sweeden who has a gf back in his home country...

Maybe I'm blind...but I just don't see this dude's logic. So aggrivating! Idiocy never ceases to amaze me...

I know this won't be the the opinion you're looking for, but it is what it is. People of race will predominately hang with the same race, it's called human nature. And nothing bigoted or racist about that.

Who knows, maybe with him marrying a lady not within his own race has caused him some personal grief through the years and he doesn't want the same thing to happen to his daughter.

You should not get mad for someone for having certain beliefs; if you do, you're doing exactly what you are accusing him of doing.

Gonna have to disagree with your whole reply there...but to each is own. Ignorance in my book...but it is what it is. We'll all be judged one day and the ignorance will be cleansed away once and for all...

Ben, we've gone round and round on issues like this before, I thought hard before posting. I knew if I had totally agreed with you, you would have called my agreement BS. Your thinking is narrow minded and downright silly if you can't see some truth in what I said.

As I said, to each is own. One day we'll all be judged by the only one who has the real right to judge. Your opinion is yours and mine is mine. I don't see color or race...guess that's just how I was brought up.

It still seems fairly normal for parents to not like inter-racial dating/marrying. I know of a lot of families that would look down on that, though none of them are racist.

But there are those who dont want inter-racial dating due to racism...those are the bad apples.

ANYONE who claims to not see race or color is full of sh1t. Everyone does, it's the actions you take that sets you apart.

I first gotta ask Ben, where did you get this info from that he thinks this way? Surely his daughter didnt tell you herself that her dad views it that way?

FWIW I think Mike has a very valid point about maybe it has caused him his own grief and doesnt wish to see his daughter go through the same situation.

Again, I would like to know who/where you heard that her dad feels that way.
