So Im scared to tell my parents I have a boyfriend, and I'm also scared they won't like him. I've never had a boyfriend before, and I don't know how to tell them. If I don't tell them and they find out, then I will most likely be in a lot of trouble, so I know it's best if I tell them. I'm scared they won't like him because he is 2 years older than me, and he's black. I know it sounds awful, but they're both in their 50s and Are to an extent kind of racist. Not extremely racist though, just like they don't think black guys treat white women right, which is a terrible assumption and I disagree with it. Anyways, how do I make it not weird to tell them I have a boyfriend, and to mention he is two years older and black?

Two years isn't an age difference.
So, I don't even know why that would be a issue.
Also, your parents sound EXTREMELY ignorant.
They've never heard of white men verbally or physically abusing their women? That's only a BLACK thing to do?
Your parents have lived their whole lives with their ignorance... so I don't expect them to change it.
You just have to be out with the truth!
They might do everything to break you both up or stop you from seeing him.
Eventually, you have to take control of your life.
If someone isn't physically or emotionally abusing you, its okay to be with that person.
You ultimately make the end decision on that!
You will not always be with your parents forever.1
