    I personally have no problem with it as long as they are both happy. It is not my personal preferance though, I am not so sure what my families reaction would actually be though if I ever did.

    What's most saddening, if not shocking, is that the kid learned this from his/her parents and wasn't independent enough to break the cycle.

    They actually just had a scene in last night's episode where a black girl told the Sheriff that a white guy had spent the whole night with her (it was a lie to give him an alibi) and to convince them it wasn't a lie, she said that they didn't tell anybody about their relationship until now because although it's not as bad as being with a vampire, it would still cause a stir in their small, rural town.

    As a side note, the show is based on the premise that vampires exist and are now out in the open. Many of the issues raised in the episodes so far mirror issues that come up with race relations (except the two 'factions' are humans and vampires).

    Reminds me of the movie Enemy Mine, which started off as a regular sci-fi movie, but morphed into a racial allegory.

    I was in a interracial relationship and my exGF never realized how racist she and other people really were until we were dating for awhile.

    That's interesting - she came to realize how racist she was? Didn't she consider you and herself as equals?
