When Mom and Dad are from different races

Life page febuary 12'06 L12
Being a child of intermarriages has many good points , but at the same time they can also bring about alot of trouble and conflict
racial disputes not only happen on the large scale, when we look into the subject , many racial diputes arise even among parents ! imagine a child standing in between his/her parents during a fight over racial issues ,imagine the amount of stress and trauma he/she would get , and whenever his/her parents let him/her be the judge on whose right or wrong , imagine the pain and agony of seeing your parents fighting these are just some instances of the problems that may arise because of intermarriages. although it may sound quite unreal, many cases of these happenings have already occured and comosions brought about because of minor indifferences . racial conflicts are unavoiable, but at a husband to wife level , in my point of view, these conflicts can be solved easily without any further problems. i think both sides must first understand the culture, practices and ways of their partners race and religion , only this way can racial conflicts be resolved. This also applies to the world , if people can understand one another better, many racial disputes can be avoided ! therefore HEED my advice and please promote racial harmony , in our families AND in the WORLD

You go Brian !!! Yeah I agree with you. We should promote racial harmony all over the world. However, my question is, how do you expect to promote world peace? I mean, what measures would you take as a citizen? As we all know, this thought is present among students as well. Taking an example, if an Indian falls in love with a Chinese, the Chinese says, "ewww I don't like him. He's so black". Moreover, is the uncomfortableness / awkwardness of being around someone of a different race also considered as racism?..or just plain awkwardness? Thank you..great blog though :)

haha... yeah youth ambassador of racial harmony!!! In fact i do feel that sometimes its the intermarriages that ease the tension of having a reace conflict. if everyone were to marry of their race, the chances of having a race riot would be high.

crap... I am so tired =P
