I'm in Charlotte, N.C. In the United States. I also think there's a Buddhist Temple up the street. However, just wondering, is Buddhism against people of mixed race? Because I'm mixed between African and Native American and I wanted to know if there's anything wrong with that.


You're a human being. In Buddhism, all human beings are equal.
When I first started practicing with other Buddhists, a lot of the members were Asian, but over time more and more Americans have joined the groups I hang with in Oregon and now Washington.
One guest speaker at a meeting here a while ago commented on how diverse the audience was, racially, ethnically, and age wise too.

Sounds like leaded or unleaded... haha

I drink both, but I go with the full strength stuff until at least noon most days. :)
