What is this message board about again? I am a black man who is currently engaged to a white woman. We are planning to have children. Correct me if I am wrong, but I sense a bit of racism or at the very least racial confusion. There seems to be a very anti-black/anti-white feel to this message board. It’s almost as if we are now promoting a superior class, the bi-racial. When are we going to get over this who is superior nonsense. Few Americans can claim ethnic purity, myself included. I have a great grandmother who was Cherokee and a great grandfather who was Jewish. This is evident in the hair textures of my family and the varying range of skin tones. Anyway, define/describe yourself as you please, but let’s not make the same mistakes as our forebearers.

One Love

    I am a student of English Department Faculty of Letters in University of 17 Agustus 1945 Surabaya, Indonesia. I just want to give my comment about Like Dismay’s problems that he wants to marry a white woman. According to me, Love is general thing and every man in this world must be ever feel it. Unfortunately, our feeling about love has barrier to pass it. Like myself, I am a Javanish and moslem but I love a girl who is christian so much. Meanwhile, our society prohibit it including my parents too. But it doesn’t matter for us as long as we love each other. So, Love is the power to strengthen our feeling to someone who we love and it is the most important to face the consequences that we will through it.

    Love and Peace
