Is love colorblind?

Posted by James, 27 May 08

We always ask this question. But doesn't asking this question mean we still have a long way to go?

Take Grey’s Anatomy for instance. This is one television show that portrays a multitude of interracial relationships without even making a big deal out of it. In fact race is one thing that is never discussed on the show. And when asked, the creator and executive producer of Grey’s Anatomy Shonda Rhimes had this to say : “I think that issues of race are a larger conversation that people project on a relationship, but for the two people in it, that’s not the primary thing on their minds.᾿

And one thing that inspired me was when she said: “Part of a truly diverse world is not needing to make a statement about the fact that it’s a diverse world. When we get to that point, we’ve gotten somewhere.᾿

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

So do you think we will ever get there?

    Love is not colorblind, but rather it loves regardless of color and even embraces different colors. Love is love. And that is what is important.

    true love is a beautiful thing of purity kindness and all selfless and genuine emotions... how can such divine feeling see colour? except of course it's not true love. I have seen a lot of babies and played with them, it's true what Lu32054 said. They return your affection with their tender smiles and hug you affectionately not caring what your colour is suppose to be.. We would all be beneficiaries of this love if we could emulate children and babies.

    I think love is love no matter what race you are. My mother is a beautiful black woman and she has always taught us not to see color. No matter what the color if that person treats you the way you are suppose to be treated then that is all. That is what she taught me and as long as I teach my nieces and nephews that then the world will be a better place.

    I believe that love is color blind to only the parties involved. It certainly is not blind to the passer bys on the streets or to certain family members. I believe life is short and go and be happy. The hard part is finding someone wonderful. Find someone, love them and enjoy the blindness. http://underthesheets-shhh.blogspot.com/

    I, too, must agree with Mz_Monique. She states the fact that color is not by choice but just is... well, people have been born of varying races since the beginning of time.. racism seems more ignorant as time goes by when you start to understand we are just people ... a baby sees no skin tone.. but, they will love the person who cares and loves them.

    alot of people judge others on looks and not in thier heart and alot of people are led astray by thier blindness, Or pride, and they lose out on something that theyed really like or totally suits them, I mean I like certain white woman too, but alot of times i dont know whether i can trust them to be true to me and not constantly joking around or acting like everything is so casual, totally get on my nerve's,

    I never got the chance to go out with a black woman that liked me for who i was, My dad was kinda prejudice and didnt like the black neighborhoods or thought it was below par and that was wrong, I saw alo of woman that i would of loved to be with and never got that chance, or was looked down upon, stinking white folk that make comments and are selfish, Im white and I cant stand alot of them as they are in stupid pride and blind as a bat, I mean who cares who you go out with, As lng as you and her like each other and share things and get along, then there it is,

    I dream about a nice personable black woman thats affectionate and likes to touch and share things, I mean is this a dream, Or is it reality? I mean ive seen alot of wehite woman out there too but too many of thern are into a mode or something I dont know. what, but i see somerthing in black women that is different than white woman, maybe its values or the way they were brought up, but i see it and i cant ignore it, its a genuiness that i dont see in alot of white woman or conservativism, Ive talked to african woman and i like them alot, they have a love and caring that you dont see here too much, and its really sad, I mean God dont look at your color of your skin he looks at your heart,

    Spending a lot of time in europe i saw that love was color blind, but once i got back to the states i saw that people expected you to only be with those of your own race. When i would date someone of a different you could see the uncomfortableness of people. Especially when i went to business functions. My children live in europe and they see no color or race.. I wish it was the same here.... Maybe one day.....

    It definitely should be color blind. We should all be like small children, color is not an issue until some adults tell them it is. Again, love sees and has no color...it's the ignorant that do!

    Love isn't color blind.. It should be, but it isn't always that way.

    In my opinion my love life is colorblind. Mz_Monique is correct love is blind not only to color but faults in all other areas including great age differences.

    I think that colorblindness is an attribute of evolution so to speak. The people in the present generation, as well as those to come after, the once who will survive, thrive and be on the forefront of social change will be those that are free from racial and ethnic biases. Amongst my circle of friends and acquaintances...it is the norm to date people based on their level of integrity and character, no matter the skin their in.

    Love isn't just colorblind.It's blind to people's faults as well and color is no fault. It just is.

    Yes, I agree that Love is colorblind. My husband and I , black and white, we are interracial marriage. And we met via a online dating service Mixedfriends.com .I met my husband through the site 1 year ago, we were two people of different cultures and countries. Yet, because of this great website we were brought together after finding love. Maybe you will love it.

    I grew up with a black sister and a white sister. I was raised not seeing any difference in the character of a person. It is all based on experience people. We may have went through trials and tribulations and may continue to, but the difference is what will we do to instill a positive change in our children's futures. It is us, the people in this world who think like us, websites like this, and tv shows like that, that are creating a change for this world. Rome wasn't built in a day but you best believe it was built! Much love Chris

    On the subject of Grey's Anatomy I think it's great that they don't make a big deal of the interracial relationships. I can't bear these films that make such a big deal of it you know the type where the woman brings back a guy and the family start going on 'oh my god he's white' etc..Having dated men from a different racial background to mine I can say that our race within the relationship has never been an issue for us, family or friends. In England there are lots of mixed couples especially in London and going out with someone from another race doesn't seem anything out out of the ordinary there. It's what's inside the person that matters the most not the colour outside!

    Wow, what she said really inspires me too and it's so true, but I don't think we'll ever get there. I would love to be in a world where people truly didn't see color, but I'm positive that it won't happen in my lifetime or maybe not even in my bi-racial children's lifetime. Don't get me wrong I'm very optimistic and I know that we have come a long way, but I'm not walking around with blinders on either. When I can walk down the street with the white man of my dreams without even a second glance then we've really gotten somewhere.
