raising a "mixed race" child in this country (i'm thinking mainly blk/white) has connotations and issues that i don't know if i, personally, am prepared to or want to deal with. not to mention the inherent issues of "crossing cultures". most white ppl have been raised in a totally different way with totally different values than i have. that said, i would almost definitely consider another man of color, but an american white male? that's tricky.
