In my experience, Latinos have been the least racist (at least in the casual, socially acceptable sense I'm referring to). Of course, if someone were being racist in Korean or Spanish, I wouldn't know....
    I don't think how open a person is about their beliefs is a good gauge of how racist they are.

    Don't know about Koreans, but Hispanic culture is very much racially prejudice and institutionally racist within countries. In many ways, more so than our own--in social settings and not.

    So very true.

    I think in America they get along ok, but some east asians (Japanese) feel they're better than everyone including whites.

    Practically all of them really. Latin America has had a racial caste system in place for quite some time - with whites on top and mixed race and non-whites on the bottom. The whole notion of there being a single "Mestizo" race is largely a charade promoted to maintain the status quo.

    Many of the countries completely hide their black ancestry. Mexico, for example. Whitewashing("mejoranda la raza", literally, improving the race) is very common. It essentially means to marry or reproduce with someone who appears more white than you are in order to climb the social ladder.

    Well the Mexican dictator Porfirio Díaz(who was part Indian in ancestry) even wore makeup to try to make himself look more White.

    Latinos in this country are pretty prejudiced as well. I worked in a predominantly Hispanic school once and you would be astonished by what comes out of the mouths of even middle school children. It goes back to the white v. black in their ancestry.

    The miscegenation hierarchy is typically like this from most preferred to least preferred:
    1. White/Asian
    2. White/Hispanic
    3. Asian/Hispanic
    4. Black/Hispanic
    5. Black/Asian
    6. White/Black


    ETA: I forgot to add the sex ratio!

    White male/Asian female
    White female/Asian male
    White male/Hispanic female
    White female/Hispanic male
    Hispanic male/Asian female
    Asian male/Hispanic female
    Black male/Hispanic female
    Black male/Asian female
    Black female/hispanic male
    Black female/Asian male
    White male/black female

    I know I missed some combos, but that's what I remember from the Census data.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    Yes. That really threw me for a loop when I made acquaintances with a few white mexicans and learned of their views. However, if race really had to be broken down it would be white, asian, black. Indians wouldn't have their own category. I thought mestizos were indian and white.

    Ridiculous. If it isn't one thing it's another. If someone didn't have to deal with culture clashing, it'd be full-blown racism one way or another, if not that than they'd definitely be part of a different religion or philosophical view and have to hide that from the 'rents. So the whole "Waah, my families have different points of view" is bullshit. Grow a backbone. (Keeping in mind I'm not yelling at anyone.. but that pussy-footing pisses me off.)

    To the OP: What a crock. Biracial babies are gorgeous, and variety makes the world go 'round.
    Kantgirl: Just say "I'm feminine and I'll punch anyone who says otherwise!"
    Halla74: Think your way through the world. Feel your way through life.
