So, I've been with my boyfriend/fiancee for slightly over a year and I haven't talked to my parents about him since I moved out with him. My mom always told me to "stay within my race" and my dad believes that all Hispanic men are going to be possessive and will try to control me. But, how am I supposed to tell them that he's nothing like what they're thinking. He's a true sweetheart to me and has never done any of the stereotypical things my parents claim he will do. I need some help about how to tell my parents that he's Mexican before we set a wedding date and don't invite my adoptive parents because of them being racist towards him and his family.

The way I look at it there is only one race and that's the human race. I would go talk to your parents by yourself first and tell them how much you care for him, and then take him to meet your parents and if your parents love you (which of course they do) they will look beyond that. It might not go well with your parents and if it doesn't just give it some time. It may take them a month or years to come around.2
