    Perfectly human doesn't mean ethical or logical or right.

    Even if your friend has a initial revulsion to eggs he could still choose to eat them knowing that their is nothing actually dangerous about them. It's also a bad comparison because how you choose to treat people is much more manageable than your gag reflex.

    well no, see if you confuse race with ethnicity you might hate people of particular races for their grandparents' culture, even if their own culture is different due to things like immigration

    "Religious cultures"? Nice try.

    What's your point? Racism and ethnic hatred having he same psychology doesn't mean that race and ethnicity are the same thing. That doesn't mean a white child is going to have some innate sense of white culture that will result in "racial confusion". She will be white, they will be black and they will have the same culture.

    Yes. In some cultures, religion is the foundation of their entire lifestyle. e.g. Amish

    There are religious cultures. People can be a part of overlapping cultures. For instance a person could be part of Italian culture, Corporate culture, and catholic culture ect. While another person might be apart of American culture, Studio culture and protestant culture.

    At most, it may have some kind of effect on the imprinting process during early childhood development, which in turn could theoretically have subtle and difficult to discern effects (not necessarily negative) on future psychological development; that's the only possible psychological issue inherent (as opposed to culturally imposed) in mixed-race adoptions that I can think of. I don't think that's even remotely a good enough reason to oppose (or even have reservations about) mixed race adoptions.
