i ask this question because of a comment made to my co worker by her long time bf, who is black. he told her recently that being with a white woman has caused him to lose his "blackness" and i wondered if others have felt this way having a partner that was of a different race/culture. and how would you take this remark if it were made to you?

Hmm. I don't think I've lost any of my culture but have gained the culture of " blacks " to make a nice mixture of both. <br />
<br />
Same goes for Jim. He's never been one to lean to or against his culture. Just keeps it real. If you talked to him on the phone and didn't know you were talking to a black man you'd think he is white. <br />
<br />
His mom says he sleeps white and acts white. But what do we care what she thinks. <br />
<br />
And considering the length of time I've been mainly among his culture and how other white women tend to " talk black " , I do not. <br />
<br />
Jim never liked " soul food ", I always have. <br />
<br />
I think if that comment was made to me I'd be like " And, so ? "

the guy that made that comment, his gf suspects that a friend of his has been whispering in his ear saying these things.

I wouldn't know personally, but I would think it would be the case if you allow it to. But it's a pretty 19th century way of thinking in regards to losing your 'blackness' I think. We are in the 21st century, we are all just people, race shouldn't play a part in anything, especially relationships.
