What would you do If your mom, Dad or anyone from your family try to stop you from dating your bf/gf because they were not the same race? Or what would you do if your bf/gf family try to stop them from dating you b/c your a different race from them? How you feel about this and has this happen to you or anyone you know? what advice do you have on this?

I don't think that would be a problem in my family, but if it had been I'd most likely stop talking to them and go my own ways.
As much as I love my parents, I can't stand racists and cut all strings to them once i find out.
Lost quite a few friends because of that already.

I would be very angry with my family if that were the case. As I understand it now, none of my family is racist nor do they care why race I date. My stepdad would be the only one I'd wonder the reaction of, but I really believe he wouldn't care as long as the person treats me well. I think he'd be a little shocked or have a hard time dealing with it if it was another race and the same sex, though.

Forbidden romance is one of a kind, so it'd be cool.

There's a few ways of tackling this maze:

1. Prove you are one of them, develop yourself beyond the criticisms they hate stereotypically
2. Hold the potential grandchildren hostage.
3. Seclude yourself with your lover
4. Ignore their indignities and have a cold war by countering comments with pda
5. Instruct your parents to behave similar and invite all together
6. Get a second lover who makes them yearn for the first one

why? what and how much reasons do you need?


6 actually sounds hilarious, I'd definitely do that. XD

If my parents are mad about something like that, I'd be enraged yet uncomfortable because honest, that's wrong, but you raised me, so...

Forget that, I'm gonna date any white/latino/asian/native american I want!


This pretty much sums it up. I'd date anyone I want, with or without them knowing about it. If they become racist, then it's their own loss.

I wish things were so simple, but for some it isnt.

Take for instance you're at college, your parents fund you or take the best possible care of you with that distance, you may fall for someone outside of "your race" and they will force you to do what they want. what choice do you have? not everyone has the luxery of being able to defy their family. Some families are very willing to abandon someone who is deemed unworthy. and some kids are just too scared of their parents. hell even some adults, there just isn't much of a way around it. People are stupid. the same people who spit out talk of love kidness and whatnot are the same who couldn't ever fathom giving that same love or treatment to someone of another race.

it sucks but there isn't much that can be done untill the world's "pure" races finally die out. when everyone is some form of tanned chinese mix. and then if that ever does happen what comes next will just be hatred based on where you live, or lived. or whether you are a left handed person or a right. its all ridiculous.

If my parents had the problems, I would ignore them. If they keep persisting, I would move out if I wasn't already living away from them. But I'm on great terms with my parents and they are not unreasonable people.

If the girl's parents had the problems, I might talk to her about ending things. I don't want to get in between her and her parents. If she's the strong independent type, she will probably carry on ignoring them...and moving out if she gets too annoyed.

The way I see it, I'm going to be walking in my own shoes in the end and I take 100% responsibility for whatever happens to me. Others have no say in how I live and about my life choices, I will ask for an opinion if I want it. If I don't live out my life the way I choose, I will probably regret it and blame others for my own life...which is just pathetic in my mind. I choose to be the designer of my own life...not a regretful whiny victim of my own life. Besides, you only have one life to live, you should live it the way you want...and I don't mean this in a irresponsible way. Regret is a cost that I can't afford.

In my experience, number 4 worked all sorts of awesome

For those of you interested in the spineless passive approach
Is a college degree worth your freedom, happiness, enlightenment of those that don't get it AND the unattractive career bore your parents hook you up with after/instead?!

Grow a pair, don't enable that backward mentality or worse.... let your parents become the reason you have a "one that got away"
