Okay, so I am black. We decided to have a family meeting and talk about race and how to deal with different things that go on. Then we started talking about interracial dating. My dad told my brothers, "I dont care what color she is. As long as she is respectful with a good head on her shoulder then she is welcome." Then he turned to me and said,"if you bring a white boy in my house I will wring his neck in front of you." I asked him, how was that fair and he said "because I said so."

I'm a black dude (always mention my ethnicity for these racial questions)
The whole idea behind this thinking, is that the father is the leader and controller of the household culture. So a black guy with a biracial baby, the child will culturally be black culturally.
But in your case, the leader and controller of the household culture would be a guy that isn't black... so the lineage of the black family culture to the next generation would n compromised, and would be one generational step to assimilation (as in cultural destruction of your family's black lineage).1

Fathers in total don't like their daughters dating ANY kind of guy because in the end they are the princesses and all that and usually a girl is more connected with their dad then their moms so that just makes them over protective while boys they tend to be more close with their moms and boys they can take care of them selfs and their for fathers don't care because boys are suppose to be strong and stuff like that. Now about the race part maybe your dad doesn't want you to mix with anyone that is black and possibly that the "white boys" parents can be racist and judge on your skin color not your personality and I don't think your dad will want to go threw that problem so he tells you to go with a person of your race (keep in mind that this is my opinion and I'm not trying to offend you in any way) while boys like I said before they are expected to be strong and take care of themselves so it doesn't matter what race they get because they can stand up and take care of problems themselves and I think thats what your father may think, that he can deal with it a scenario where the girls parents don't like him because of his race.1
