_______________________ Laurel, Md.: Isn't it funny that almost all of biracial children are beautiful?It's almost like God is trying to tell us something. _______________________ Washington, DC: Can you speak a little about how to ignore the criticism you get for dating outside your race?_______________________ Fairfax, VA: Do you think that boys have a harder time dealing with being biracial or is it just as hard for girls? I think it really just depends on the child and the prevailing attitudes of the environment they live in.Some kids have a hard time, some sail through-- just like any other adolescents.However I often find myself criticizing successful black men who seem to only date white women.I know it seems quite a hypocritical position to take (pot calling the kettle black!If you're upset about someone else's relationship, it really just means you have something to work on inside!

I'm glad you are writing about interracial marriage.
