Should the color of the skin be a deciding factor when choosing a partner?

There are alot of people in the world that thinks that they should stick to their "own kind" when choosing a partner. I personally think that the color of someone's skin does not makes us different in anyway at all. We are all part of the human race. What do you think?

I agree! It doesn't matter to me in the least what race or ethnicity someone is. I love meeting people from different cultures, as friends or otherwise. I do think people should understand their partner's culture as much as possible before getting married, as different cultures have different expectations as to the roles that husband and wife will play in a relationship. :D

If people really go about dating people in relationships by the choice of color , then WTF are they doin in a relationship in the first place? Can u really call it a relationship ? i think not , I myself dont discriminate against any race , i dont care , i have white , indian and black inside my own blood not to mention i didnt grow up with just on particular race ,..so the race thing is just pure ignorance amongst people who dont wanna try something new , and theyre bitter and boring. I love all races of women , Hispanic, Asain , Brazilain , WHATEVER ! :) it doesnt matter as long as the woman has a great personalty and peace of mind about herself , and thats what some people cant wrap their thick heads around .

I agree, however, I do think that people are entitled to their preference. Yet, if you love someone outside of your race then it will take dedication to your partner and strength to overcome the opinions of today. Although it is now 09' racism still exists. But I'm all for interracial dating.

...There are many members of mixed race marriages who are attend my church. I think they have the same chances of having a successful relationship as any other. They are likely to get more critizism. People are very judgemental of things and people who are different. ...When I was in college, I dated outside my race. Now that I am divorced and dating again, I'd consider it. I think you need follow your heart. If you are able to discuss any issue (including finances since its the leading cause of divorce), have common interests and, of course, have lots of spark between you, I think, it is worth pursueing. ...Great topic! Peace be with you. Della

That is definitely not a deciding factor for me, I think all races are very beautiful. My boyfriend is caucasian as I am, but if he was not I would still fall in love with him the same way. We are all capable of loving each other, some of us just have to get past the mind block that makes them feel different from the other person. There may be some in my family (not close family), that may think that it is taboo, or weird, to date someone of another race, but who cares about them. My brother married a Filipino girl, so he has been shunned by one or two people in my family, but we don't need them anyway.
