We are a Caucasian family of Scottish and German descent, we have 3 kids who are now 19, 28 and 31. Our 19 years old daughter is dating a white guy from her college, our 31 years old son is married to a white girl and they have 2 beautiful children, and our 28 years old son has been dating a black girl for almost 2 years.
We have never been very content with this relationship, but at the same time we always thought that at some point they were going to break up. Well, that has not been the case, 3 days ago I got the news from my son that they got engaged and have now started to plan their weeding for the next Summer.
We expressed our disagreement and explained to our son why.. It is not because we are racist or hate black people, in fact I worked for most than 7 years helping black folks that got out of prison reintegrate into society and also helping black single mothers. I'm far from racist, I respect every race, and culture. We just want to keep our family the way it is. We have black, Hispanics and even Muslim friends, but that does not mean that I want my kids to marry them. It is a family tradition that has been going for hundreds of years which we just marry and procreate with people of our own race. So, after we talked to our son he told his fiancee about it, and yesterday she came over and told us that we are racist, bigots, hateful people and every name in the book. Why are Arabs, Jews, Black and every other race allowed to do the same, but not white people?
