Holy bump, Batman!

I've never had another against people of another race, but I've just never been attracted to girls (or guys) of another race. So no.

I wouldn't, simply because I don't really find people of other races attractive. I just don't.
Well if you read through this thread you'll find yourself in fine company with a gay South African who also happens to be a dedicated racist.  

Well it's not a conscious decision and not anything I can change, so what do you expect me to do?

I realized that in retrospect after I made the post -that's why I deleted it.  I am just going to assume (until told otherwise) that you will not marry women of a different race simply because you aren't attracted to them -not because you find white women inherently superior to them.    

I know plenty of people of other races who are women, and they all seem like fine people; I just aren't physically attracted to them. Nothing wrong with em, but just not attracted to them.

Why not? But, I am for the most part, mainly attracted to white women, and Europeans especially are preferable to American women. I can't explain it.

I dunno, maybe it's genetics, maybe it's a subconscious socio-cultural thing; it'd be an interesting thing to study psychologically, actually.

I voted wrong before I thought about it.  I voted no, but then I just realized I totally would marry a Kenyan woman if the opportunity presents itself.  My vote should be a yes.

I am not attracted to most African Americans or Hispanics, so no...but its not impossible, of course Smiley I would not marry outside my religion, however.

Of course I would, though I've never been attracted to any black/Asian/Hispanic/Native/anything else besides white men before. But then again, all my crushes are fictional.

...so alone...

My preferences, to the extent that I have them, are culturally determined. After three hours of watching the film Zulu, I found myself much more attracted to Bantu women than I normally am. The important thing was that I could locate them within the culture. I realize that this is just another form of fetishism, but then that is why relationships can't be based on sexual attraction alone.

So other than Kenyan women, you would only marry a woman who is 31/32 white and 1/32 Native American?

Is that a policy set by your church or is it something you've decided? Also, would you marry somebody not of your religion but who has a possibility of converting to it?

Its a personal policy. It would lead to needless problems. I would never force my spouse to convert.

Agreed on the Asians. Disagree on marriage.

What I mean is, if there's a girl you want to marry, who's not a member of your religion, who's open to and interested in it, but hasn't joined it but might do so in future?

I don't have any real desire or attraction to other African-Americans or Asian, Asian-American.  I wouldn't mind a Native American girl, either Potawatomi or other tribe, no matter the amount.  Mostly, though, other than Kenyan girls, I am attracted to predominately white girls.  And, really, I am more attracted to the whites than I am Kenyans.

I will put a tag on the back of this by saying I will gladly accept whomever the LORD brings my way.

Yeah.  I feel this way, too.  The denomination wouldn't be entirely important to me, though.

Almost every guy of every race I know is attracted to Latinas. I guess they're the most likely to marry out out of any race/gender combination.

     The probability of that happening is extremely low. Not zero, but close enough that I consider it such in practice. So I guess my answer is no.

I'm a little lost as to what's so different about Kenyans compared to others from East Africa, but OK.

I remember this thread. It's a bit scary in how much racism is going on in it.

My answer is yes, of course.

How can you ask such a question ? I have no damn clue who I would or would not marry. Love depends on factors which are far beyond human comprehension and rationality.

I date outside my race more often than I've dated within it, so it's probably more likely than not.
