Most certainly I would( if I was dating). Including aboriginal/maori backgrounds. My brother is married to woman who is ethiopian( but canadian-ya know what I mean), and she gets hit on ALL the time -it drives my brother a bit crazy actually.
Yes. My family's a little schitzophrenic about blacks and indians but that is their problem, not mine. In the past there have been comments tied to darker-skinned people but I find myself saying outright, "YOU're more immigrant than so and so. He's been here for generations." I could relate to that short Russell Peters skit about his father on the phone, getting impatient and acting like a redneck with the eastern european woman. Among chinese, there really is a stigma regarding black people. The same way chinese don't like indian and indian don't like chinese even though it's a bit petty. They can be so hostile though and unprovoked.
I have cousins that are half eurasian (third gen i think) and half black in LA. Their ea half is darker than us... I never cared enough to ask why. My cousins then are darker too but they aren't any less than family. My cousins are second generation immigrants. Their ea mother originally from sg and then married a black man in the US 15 yrs her senior. There was not just the ethnic/race part involved but also an age difference that others in the family didn't understand. They're happily married for over 20+ years and it's only now that people are learning to just shut it. I've dated both blacks and indians but not long enough to call it a relationship. My family certainly knew nothing of it. My brother's case was a little different when he came out that he was dating an indian girl. There was so much pressure to break up. They eventually did (then I got mad at him) although I think they got over each other faster than I did. She was a really nice girl and I used to help him buy/pick out gifts for her. I think, CJF, you were getting at hostile comments from random strangers in society rather than family acceptance? I'm not sure. Personally for me and from what I've seen from others, it was harder for our family to understand. I also think that in indian families it's more of a dead end than in blacks.
