I just saw this: You live in California, I doubt anyone really cares and for sure you wouldn't have to deal with racism. Now, if you lived in Texas (we had a very scary experience there with our child as I think they hate mixing the races [some, not all]) or Georgia, any of those southern states (most are very friendly) there are always people who are extremely racist. I have had to deal with this (my wife is biracial brasilian). It hurts but shallow minds do not account for the majority of people.My boyfriend has listed many a reason why camping is not for him, among that list is that we are a biracial couple. Can any other couple relate to fears of dealing with small minded people? He’s afraid of people bothering us. I told him gay, biracial, all kinds of couples camp and travel the country with no issues...your thoughts?
I read one comment that people, if they are honest, inherently have prejudice in them, while it is true that it's a natural self-preservation feeling (one that was instilled in us from our parents who say you can't trust strangers) I don't feel that way about others. It all depends upon how you were raised. If your community is predominately white I could see this. So, for most, you were brought up to be weary. Stupid stereotypes of other cultures.
All of that said, you all have to understand that you are already out there in public. How does that feel? It's going to be no different camping. California, I wouldn't concern myself with at all. I am sure there would be no issues whatsoever with anyone. Just try it out and if you will see that it is not any different. Campers are probably much nicer than normal population.
