    O mankind! Lo! We have created you male and female, and have made you nations and tribes that ye may know one another. Lo! the noblest of you, in the sight of Allah, is the best in conduct. Lo! Allah is Knower, Aware Surah al-Hujurat (49:13)

    This meaning of the this verse is echoed in the final speech of the Messenger in which he says:

    All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action. You know that every Muslim is the brother of another Muslim. Remember, one day you will appear before Allah and answer for your deeds. So beware, do not astray from the path of righteousness after I am gone.

    So the issue of race is irrelavent to Muslims. We are all brothers and sisters.

    Wa'alaikum As'Salaam.

    Yes, you can marry any Muslim woman, regardless of what her race is.

    Interracial marriages are perfectly fine and halal.

    yes it 100% ok the prophet Muhammad (saw) encouraged interracial marriages

    second

    4:3 And if you fear that you will not deal justly with the orphan girls, then marry those that please you of [other] women, two or three or four. But if you fear that you will not be just, then [marry only] one or those your right hand possesses. That is more suitable that you may not incline [to injustice].

    they won't accept you completely unless you were born into the faith and you can record it clear back. Sorry. Though if you have read their holy book you should know this.
