Recently a video was aired on youtube, showing women and young girls of Kama (Africa) trying to leave the continent using internet to find white westerners who would be willing to marry them, in order for them to have a more comfortable life.
A Raelian Guide from Africa asked Rael what he thinks of this situation. Here is what he answered:
“The fact that a ‘black girl looks for her white guy’ or that ‘a white guy looks for his black girl’ isn’t a problem if there is love. On the contrary, it is rather good for mixing races and fighting against racist prejudices. By mixing races we create this melting pot which will one day lead to a unique race like on the Elohim planet, gathering all the advantages of each one of the original races.
It is even possible that the Elohim in their macro-biological vision, had planted in each race voluntarily genes fighting against diseases which, when combined will make all diseases disappear. This is just a thought…
The problem arises when, whatever their skin color is, someone is looking for material advantages without love. This is called prostitution. Whether it happens between white people or between different races, whether it is a permanent situation or a temporary one, to marry someone rich just for their money is as much prostitution as selling oneself along a sidewalk.. The only difference is that in the first case it is part of our institution and considered “respectable” by our society, while the other one is not, despite the fact that there is actually no difference between the two cases. This being said, if both parties have advantages in their agreement where one brings youth and beauty and the other one brings money, there is no reason to condemn such deals in a world lead by money, whether it is a temporary situation like in prostitution or a more permanent one by marriage.
It is also true that the ideal society towards which we are leaning hopefully will not use money anymore and hence will not know prostitution, neither from marriage nor from temporary prostitution.
