Interracial dating isn't without its problems, but today interracial relationships enjoy more support in the United States than they have at any point in history.

While two decades ago, fewer than half of Americans approved of interracial marriage, now 65 percent of all Americans support such relationships, and 85 percent of young people do.

If your parents react in an irrational, angry way, realize that there is not much you can do about it.

I don’t know why they have these racist feelings, but that is something they need to learn to get over – it’s not something you have any control over.

I know it’s hard, but in the end, being honest is better than lying.

Approach your parents on your own, not with this guy.

You’ve dated a long line of losers—deadbeats, cheaters, manipulators.

They all belonged to your racial group, so you figure you’ll have better luck dating someone of a different race.

Unfortunately, you may need to end up choosing between your family and your relationship.

In this case, I would say that you should stick to your guns and date this guy, as long as he treats you right and makes you happy. I’m sure they will, and that’s because they are trying to, for lack of a better word, bully you into doing what they want you to do.

Explain that he makes you very happy, and he’s very important to you.

Stress that you don’t want to ruin your relationship with them, and you hope they can accept your decision.
