47A group for social-activities
- Aug 1, 2005Well ...let's see ... 'Jeff' does rhyme well with
"Hef" ... so ... it could very well be a 'sign'. ;)
Also - I understand what you are saying in
regards to feeling somewhat more compatible
with dating another 'multi'-racial individual
rather than someone who is or considers
themself to be a 'mono'-racial.
Often those who are unfamilar with the
whole idea of embracing your 'multi'-racial
heritage mistakenly think that you are
trying to deny or downplay one part of
your lineage in favor of another rather
than simply embracing all of who you are.
Your idea of a social / dating group
could offer an option for others who
are interested in meeting people who
understand their experiences and support
their embracing of their full heritage.

I can see plenty of potential headches there,
but it does sound appealing.
I could be the high yella Hefner.;P
But seriously, I do generally prefer to date mixed women
simply because I feel like I'd have more in common with
them and they'd have a better understanding of who I am.
I also feel like there is a greater openmindedness
to other cultures, ideas and beliefs.
Unless they've been brainwashed
by the militant one-droppers.
Actually Jeff -- I think that a group designed for
"multi-racial socializing" (whether for dating or
general events) sounds like a pretty cool idea!! :D
Maybe you could consider even initiating such
a group and seeing how it goes -- as I think
that many mixed-people (including those who
are members here) might be very interested. : )
(The only thing is ... that it would probably take
a lot of time to handle the moderating in order to
prevent trollers and other such troublemakers from
purposely trying to post offensive material, etc.).
Just a thought. :D

You know, if you guys keep mentioning your mixes
and the male/female ratio continues we'll need
to start a sister group for mixed dating. ;)
Hmmm - now that I mention it....

I'm mixed vietnamese and black.
And I do get questioned in fact just last week
asked me if I was mixed and I said yea why?
They say I have 'those asian eyes'.
*sigh, I've heard how being mixed in Europe "
is not a big deal" and I wish Americans
could have the same concept.
To everyone :)
I had a question for everyone:
Do you find you have to explain yourself still in
Meaning, I still find I have to run down the lineage
For people although nine times out of ten they
have already made up their minds before hand lol
This came to mind because I went to Paris in April
and I found the people refreshingly accepting.
Maybe this is a US thing.
What do you think?
