I've been in love with my boyfriend since my senior year of high school. Well we've been talking about getting married right after he graduates (he's younger). Well my parents are racist, I come from a white family and my parents have always hated black people. I'm not racist at all, I get along with everyone, skin color doesn't matter to me. Well my parents hate him and have called him racist names so now his family hates me, so neither family is happy. Well my dad forbids me to see or talk to him, which I still do sometimes. Well if he finds out he beats me so I'm scared to do it again. I was hoping someone could tell me a what to make my parents accept my boyfriend, because I love him more than anything and I hate lying to my parents about him. My boyfriend shouldn't be kept a secret and I shouldn't be abused because of who I love and want to get married to. And I just don't know what to do anymore because I'm scared my boyfriend might want to leave me because he's scared of my dad hurting me, which is a risk I'm willing to take to be with him.

If you can finish school and head off to college or otherwise get out on your own, do so ASAP. Get away from your tyrant parents.
Question: does your bf have a plan for the future? College? Good Job? Military? In fairness, I have known white parents of daughters who didn't object to the suitor's race, so much as they objected because they thought the suitor was "ghetto", or had no future.
