Dating outside of my race?

My mom is mixed and my dad is black. My mom doesn't care who I date as long as they make me happy but my dad only wants me to date a black guy. Like my dad doesn't even like me going around my moms family. Well I'm not really attracted to black guys. There are a few who I like but I really like this guy who's Cuban but my dad says I can't date him cause he's not black. What should I do?

  • What is your dad's rationale? Maybe have a talk with him to understand why he feels the way he does. Tell him that you understand his position, and you don't want to disrespect him, but you have to decide for yourself what's right for you.

    It sounds like he didn't get on with your mum's family so maybe he equates 'interracial' with cultural conflict or something.

    For the record I don't believe skin color has any bearing whatsoever on compatibility :)

  • I'd ask your mom to have a talk with your dad, first of all, and see if she can talk some sense into him. If not, do what many have done before: hang out with the Cuban guy behind his back. You won't be alone.

  • You are mixed, so dating white guys is NOT dating outside YOUR race. So your question should really read, "dating outside of my DAD'S race?"

    And once you write down what the actual question is, the answer becomes quite clear. "why should you give a tiny little rat's ass?"

    Date whomever you want to date. It's YOUR life, after all!

  • your mum is mixed race, it puzzled me why your dad is so against you dating other guys who are non black.

    You date who you like, I won't listen to my parents if they reject a guy based on race.
