Racism is fading, but it is still alive, hun, especially in the South. I wouldn't be surprised if many guys your age have slightly racist to racist parents and racist to very racist grandparents. No way to put a real number on it, but I'll give a wild guess well over half. This puts pressure on a kid, even one who may be very open to dating outside his race. You should be aware of this when you assess his actions, and understand neither of you are to blame the ails of past generations.0
Tennessee is probably racist as hell. Move to the North!0
You should probably find a boy from the north who moved there, he will be more open minded (hopefully)1
Ah, that's still a taboo in the South. I grew up there, and I know that black and white don't really mix at all. There's just so much mistrust that no one really crosses the racial divide even for friendship. I can't imagine that any white guys or black girls would be comfortable dating the other in that part of the country. Maybe it could happen in Nashville or Atlanta, but most of the South is pretty divided.0
