Growing up in the south was fun for me. My mother always told me that color didn't matter. Date who you want; I don't have a problem with it. I date black and white men. Mostly white men because the attraction I have to them. My friends don't agree with the men I choose to date. But hey, I'm happy. Isn't that what counts at the end of the day.

I’m a product of a bi-racial relationship. My father is Persian and my mother is Black. When I was younger, I wanted to associate only with my Black side because I was embarrassed of my Persian side, and wasn’t exposed to people like me, but as I got older, I realized the cultural importance of both sides and am very proud to be who I am. I and my 3 siblings wouldn’t exist without these important measures towards civil rights :)

I am the product of a biracial relationship. I am half white and half black.

Although my parents' relationship didn't work out, I've taken the time to come to terms with my true identity. I've accepted both Caucasian and African-American heritage and culture as my own, finally. When people ask me what I am, I answer proudly that I'm mixed.

My husband and I blended our diverse families together. In so doing, his family turned against him and lied in court about us, resulting in my husband losing custody of his daughters. We are now looking for civil activists, attorneys, legislatures, etc., interested in helping my husband pursue a new trial, which he is being denied.

I am so grateful to god to have met someone like my husband. We originally met on a dating service and found out we had similar interest. He is from louisiana and i'm from California. After months of talking and courting one another we finally married and have been married for 2 years. We had children from previous relationships and they get along as if they were raised together all along. I can honestly say that love has no color. My kids live life to the fullest and are very educated.

It's hard when some of your family members do not like the fact that you live in an area that is mostly white and that some of your friends are white. That is the situation that I am in. I am glad that my parents and siblings have no problem with it, but I wish that my other relatives would stop having a problem with me talking and hanging with white people. Yes, I am black. One of my best friends is a white male and I love him to death.

Nick Glasgow, a Japanese-American in the San Francisco Bay Area, is in desperate need of a bone marrow donor. His only chance for life is to find a matching donor; the only possible donor is someone of mixed Asian-Caucasian ancestry, and most likely it will be someone of Japanese-Caucasian ancestry.

The link below contains more information, including instructions about how to do a test to see if you could be a donor.

I wanted to tell a tale about my life and how it coincidentally goes with Loving Day. I am a white male from a small town outside of Madison, WI. My town has few minorities and my high school class had a total of 2 out of 165 that weren't white. So that should basically give you an idea of how I grew up. Now, I went to school at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities so you can imagine things not changing much. But they did, very much so.
