Buddhism and interracial dating
In a speech he delivered in 1968, Muhammad Ali said quite directly that all white men and women “in their right minds” would oppose miscegenation, and then he said the same about blacks as well (watch the video here).

Despite such censoring — or perhaps, because of it — it is vital that we thoroughly understand the topic, rather than passively accepting anything with which our unbelieving culture and media might try to inculcate us.
Before venturing into the subject itself, it would be profitable to understand what others, especially Christians, have thought of miscegenation.
