I was wondering how we would be accepted.
Any information would be greatly appreciated. Originally Posted by Mikejl. IMO, based solely on my extensive one month in the area, you'll receive what you sow. What do I mean?

I think the old rule I was taught as"When in Rome, do as the Romans do" Interracial dating Springfield Missouri the words that would apply to such a situation.
Let's take a generalization that I have recently seen. How do you think they were treated? They certainly got "the glare" from everyone, including me. However, they were still served. The difference was that the waitress did not engage in freindly banter with them and make them feel at home. They were effectively treated very differently. I don't blame the waitress at all. I place all fault with the person who was acting in a form and fashion acceptable in their home region but unacceptable here.
Still, the person appeared to be so dense that they didn't even notice that they were being treated differently. I guess that's the best for them under the circumstances. I've also seen a variety of people, admittedly mostly caucasion families but interspersed enough with some form of other races or mixed families, going into restaurants, seeing venues, and shopping alongside of me at the local market. At Interracial dating Springfield Missouri time did I see them treated any differently than me.
In all cases they were as polite and accomodating of others as those with whom they were interacting. So, that's my take on things. BTW, if you're worried about kids, I'm sure they will have all the problems that any kids have in any school. Some may disagree with me, which won't be the first timebut I believe that it's the nature of children to pick on any differences.
It's not limited to race. It has to do with any difference like, fat, thin, ugly, freckled, red hair, handicapped, etc. Some of those things are qualities that can't be changed. It's part of the learning process to discover that such behavior is inappropriate. Where the failure comes in is when the parents don't teach "Johnny" that picking on "Jimmy" because of fill in the blank is inappropriate. After all of that preaching from meI'm sure you'll find an idiot here and there around Springfield. In other words, they're everywhere.
It's the nature of mankind. BTW, I'm not saying that people who believe that your relationship is inappropriate are idiots or that such people are limited to caucasions. They can come from a variety of heritages and are entitled to their beliefs. The idiots are the ones that act on their beliefs in such a way as to treat you inhumanely, without respect for you as a human.
Nobody deserves that treatment. Wow, I think I broke my soapbox. I need to go find another one so I'm ready for another thread.
We have a family like yours in our Sunday School class and it isn't even on the radar as an issue. I think it is primarily the "urban black culture" or hiphop fad that would not find a welcoming audience here too much. It is a pretty white place with something of a small midwest town mentality, but color is not the issue so much as attitudes and actions.
