"I have written on this forum from time to time, that I am against mixed racial mating and relationships. I consider that to be real racism"
The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.
here we have the "Real" DEFINITION of RACISM
"Some people think that there are no defectiveness, in the birth of children of mixed racial marriage, but indeed there are, there is contnuous internal wondering, about whether they should cling to the family of their black mother, or cling to the family of their white father, and when they are despised by the white section of their family, which generally takes place, the children become hurt, and angry, for the rest of their childhood, and even when they become grown up people, the root of this tragedy and feelings, still remain deep inside of them."
I pray thee brother this is an OPINION of yours because this is not an anctual fact. I know numerous children from families of two different skin colors and they do not have one question of who they are, or where they come from, or where they are going...THESE CHILDREN KNOW THEY ARE AFRICAN, THEIR PARENTS DO NOT NEGLECT TO LET THE KNOW THAT THEY ARE BLACK SONS & DAWTAS OF THE MOST HIGH DESPITE THE FACT THAT THEIR MOTHER IS OF WHITE SKIN or have family members of white skin.
When i say birth defect or genetic defect this cannot be included this is something that has been fabricated to justifiy your race separatism. The physical body has not any negative deffect because of Parents of two different skin colors having children.
With that said I do not want to be mistaken, I AM NOT PROMOTING RACE MIXING I AM NOT STATING THAT ONES & ONES SHOULD GO AND SEEK FOR MATES OUTSIDE THEIR RACE BECAUSE IF THAT IS YOUR INTENTION THAT WE DO SEE A PROBLEM OR DISFUNCTION. my point is that we cannot judge a man or woman for mating with someone of a different skin colour as long as they are in "PERFECT LOVE" if their is an ulterior motive for this union ie, money, status, reputation, etc... then it is completely wrong because then it will be as wrong as our african people marrying into these european families because of wealth,& financial status.
Like I & someone else have stated: be careful not to make the same mistakes the europeans did, that would also be their joy. The europeans were the ones to implement this mentality among the hearts of people thats why when you travel to the midwest in america you will see that the white folks keep to themselves and keep their race "pure".
Remember, the definition of racism is the belief that race accounts for differences in human character, that is what is being done on here
