my boyfriend and i have been dating for a little over a year his parents and family know and love me but none of my family knows about him because theyve always been very against interracial relationships. but i love my boyfriend and he loves me but i can tell he's getting irritated with them not knowing id like to tell my family but im not sure how to and im slightly scared to tell them but i hate us being a secret. any opinions on what i should do that would be greatly appreciated thanks.

First of all, just because your parents are against interracial relationships, doesn't mean they're racist. Some people are just traditional in the sense of dating. My dad is a white man against interracial dating but he has African-American, Latino, Asian friends and so on. He just has that traditional mindset. I have nothing against interracial relationships myself but I won't call these people RACIST. Unless, of course, your parents are actually racist for other reasons you didn't list.
Anyway, this is a tough situation, since you're under 18 years old. I would try to convince your parents but this probably won't go over too well. Unfortunately, since you're under 18, they have authority over you. Good luck.0
