    Growing up in the 80s and 90s as when i saw Nightcourt (Mac whom is a black man married to an Asian woman), Soul Man on HBO when i was 4 (white man and black woman), La Bamba in theaters at age 5 (white girl and latino boy), Scarface on TV (a white woman and a latino man), Angel Heart on video (white man and black woman), Serpent and Rainbow in theaters when i was 5 going on 6 (black woman and white man), Harlem Nights in theaters when i was 7 (white man and black woman), Tales from the Darkside The Movie in theaters at age 7 going on 8 (Rae Dawn Chong and James Remar whom one is a black woman and a white man in the final story Lover's Vow which the movie is based on that classic 80s horror anthology show), MASH the series (Lebense American man and Asian woman married), Star Trek TOS on Nick when i was 9 (white man and black woman), seeing Guess Who's Coming to Dinner in class when i was 12 especially seeing Eliza's parents (one Navajo man and one black woman) on Gargoyles when i was 12 to reading some issues of X-Men where Storm has an affair with a white man taught me growing up there is nothing wrong with interracial love.

    They taught me love has no skin color/ethnicity/different cultural background but who the person is. I have been supporting interracial love/marriage since i was a kid seeing those couples in those shows/movies/comics.

      Entertainment is full of liberal writers and such. They were pushing interracial relationships big time in the late 80s to early 2000s as it was considered to be controversial and taboo to many. Today they're doing the same thing with homosexuality, forcing it in entertainment to desensitize people to it. I honestly saw nothing wrong with interracial relationships except some did it just to be edgy, to virtue signal, to piss their parents off or used some trashy white girl as some type of status symbol in the hood. The same with homosexuality, if two people love each other let them be, but if you're doing it to be cool, trendy or because someone indoctrinated you towards it, that isn't love.

        But have you ever seen those shows/movies even Tales from the Darkside the movie, Scarface, La Bamba, Gargoyles, Nightcourt, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner etc.?

        Entertainment can be a good teaching tool with messages like those movies/shows. And well said Bassman.

          Interesting fact: Many think That Captain Kirk kissing Lt Uhura was the first ever interracial kiss on TV. But that isn't the case.

            I'm glad it had a positive effect on you! I always loved seeing interracial families/couples repped in media, especially BW/WM, seeing as how I'm the product of such a couple. One of my favorites were Blossom's oldest brother Anthony and his wife Shelley--they were a cute couple! As I can remember, the writers on "Blossom" actually treated their relationship with realism and sensitivity, they even did an episode where they encountered racism. Also loved that movie with Rae Dawn Chong, that was unique story-telling! I can't speak on the subject of indoctrination or so-called "virtue signaling", because that term has very little relevance to me, but I'd say that the growing number of interracial couples throughout the years mostly had to do with changing attitudes between groups due to improved race relations over the last few decades. Media can play a small part in society's shifting ideas on certain issues, but most of the time, I'd say these things come down to mutual attraction and individual choice.

              Which Rae Dawn movie? Tales from the Darkside?

                Yes--I just looked it up to refresh my memory. "Lover's Vow" from TFTD. The ending scene stuck in my brain for years afterwards...was so haunting and disturbing.
