I feel like everyone may have hidden bias's but that doesn't mean that it is race related or that everyone is a little racist, i am a mixed person and i do not believe that i have any racist feelings in me, unconscious or not, i have so many races in me it would be like being racist against myself for the most part.

Again, racism and prejudice/bias are not the same thing

Also people who may have small biases about race isn't anything compared to the people in those forums, the average person who may crack a black joke every now and than is not spreading hate like in that forum..

This article is about the Cheerio debacle (Ad with a bi racial family that people freaked over) but also has some good insight I think

I'm in a mixed race family. My parents are white and me and both of my brothers are Asian. The amount of hate for people who would mix races in a family take always shocks me.

The only good that comes from their vocal hate is you learn who you need to avoid.

Oh I don't doubt there may be things I am Bias about without even bring aware... But that's a far stretch IMO from racism...

I would never judge anyone by their appearance, period....

I'd be pretty amazed if anyone of any race with a high IQ would marry any of those people. I also enjoyed their in depth and well informed analysis of genetics.

Sadly, I'm not surprised by this at all.

I guess I need to clarify that it is against race and culture.

And I agree I don't see it as racism but many do. The how could you not feel this way or accept this etc etc.

I also didn;t read the link. If everyone is that offended its not something I need to see!!!

That is an adorable commercial.

I can't believe how people can have an issue with bi racial families. They aren't affecting others
