Non-White Amish? (Video)
This was a question that kept popping up, so I did a video on it. While it might seem pretty straightforward, it does open up a couple of interesting related topics – Amish adoption, and outsiders joining the Amish. I give examples from those categories in answering this question. Runtime: 2:34.
Just saw the video non white. Question: if a non white has joined the church are they allow to marry a white Amish member?
Non white Amish
In my travels around Central PA over the years I have seen 5 or 6 of what appears non white Amish. The last one I ran into was in Lebanon County. An Amish acquaintance told me of a couple mixed children that were being raised Amish. I’ve seen many non white Mennonites.
We have Amish friends who adopted two girls from China, and black Amish friends.
There is at least one black Amish woman that I have seen in NE Ohio. I believe she was adopted as a child. She is currently married to a white Amish man and they have several children.

I SAW A ASIAN AMISH TEENAGER IN LANCASTER COUNTY PA. COMING WITH A VANLOAD OF OTHER AMISH TEENS TO EAT AT A MEXICAN RESTAURANT ABOUT 20 YEARS AGO.
