@Tswife4ever: No, I don’t think they are treated differently. People ask me where I am from often. Hmmm, I am a native of TN and people ask me that in TN! I would not worry about it, they will blend fine in society. Or maybe they will stand out, thats a blessing too.

Wow – that seems sooooo old school – but I guess it’s also regional.

Where I live (Los Angeles) it’s rare that someone isn’t mixed.

Most everyone I know has mixed kids!  (White mixed with something else).  

I think mixed kids are BEAUTIFUL!  If anything, they’ll be treated different because they are HOT! 😉

My daughter’s biological father is Ethiopian! (I must say she is gorgeous haha)

My husband is white (European) and I am brown (Hispanic).

I have never received any negativity from anyone. Honestly, if I ever do… so help me god…. that person will regret ever having met me haha.

I get more positivity then anything to be honest.

Oh wow, please don’t let this upset you! Unless you live in a time warp, I would not fret about this – the world has changed since your mom was young and mixed race is not even unsual anymore. Look in any kindergarten classroom and you will find kids of all backgrounds, and lots of kids with mixed backgrounds! Yes, they might encounter some jerks who will make comments, but ALL people encounter jerks who make comments about SOMETHING. Having a mixed background always made me feel special and I love being part of multiple cultures at once. Your kids will be beautiful, happy, and proud of both of their heritage!

Look at our current president. 🙂  Nope, I’m not worried at all. We live in a somewhat diverse area (mostly Caucasian, but about 25-30% are Black, Hispanic, Asian and Indian) and we will be sure to raise them with other children of other races, especially Indian. (My Darling Husband is Indian, I am White) I’m not worried about it.

I think your kids will have an advantadge- with two loving, caring and gorgeous parents.

Maybe in some more “backwards” places, but honestly I live in a very multicultural place and I don’t notice anything! I will technically have mixed children too 🙂 I always thougth it was cool when kids in my grade were from different places and races so to speak. I was jealous!

Mixed children are beautiful and as long as they have 2 loving parents there is nothing to worry about! They will have the best of both worlds.

I doubt it, honestly, there is such a huge population of “mixed” people anymore, at least around me, and it is just growing that soon it will be odd to not be the mixed ones!

There are so many mixed race people these days that no one bats an eyelid.

The funny thing though is that Obama is half black and hald white and yet people always call him a black man. So I guess that means he is not accepted by the white community??

all children are beautiful and children being mixed doesnt make their chances of being beautiful any higher than any whole race child. i have mixed family members young and old, and they dont speak of any discrimination or feeling disconnected from either side.

However i do know an AA/White friend who feels as though she fit in more in society than she do with her White side of her own family

well in slavery days, no matter what you were, if there was a drop of african ancestry, then you were black. no if, and, or buts about it. that way of thinking still exists.

i notice that a lot of AA/White usually mate with the AA side. dont know why

@bells: I’ve never understood that either. Our future children would be half-Indian, half-Caucasian and that is what we will refer to them as, not Indian. I don’t get the half black/half white = black. He’s just as much white as he is black.
