They think I've literally lost my mind and that we were never meant to mix with someone darker. How many others have to deal with this? parents hating your partner for no reason other than their race or darker skin color.

Aww this is a tough position to be in..
As a black girl whose been in this position but on the opposing end...
You only really have two options to stick with your gut or abid by your parents..
Both have pros and cons
I think some cases like this are easier than others
If it's a white/black issue than I think you have a fair chance of succeeding in standing your ground
They'll probably take the relationship more serious as you both progress in terms of time
If it's like a black/Indian thing than that's a whole different ball park and odds are against you..
I have no to low hope of this is that.. Case
Pros: you get to be with the person you want
Cons: your parents may try to give an ultimatum and cut you off financially
If you give in to your parents:
Pros: you won't face any of the previous cons mentioned
Cons: letting them win this battle is pretty much given them the green light to dictate who you can be with and if it happened once it'll happen again.
Plus you may live with regret

Unfortunately this happens far too often. If u really like this girl, u will deal with the disapproval of your parents.
You are at a crossroads right now. Are you your own person, or are u going to submit to be the person your parents want u to be?
