Most Helpful Guy
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.
