I am currently dating my 6'6 European boyfriend he is German, Scandinavian, English, and Sicilian. I am 5'1 and Filipino, Chinese and Mexican. Just a bit of Mexican since grandpa was Mexican and Filipino. And my grandma was the same mix. Anyways being Filipino and family is very strict. They expect me to date when I am out of college and expect me to being someone Filipino home. We talk about marriage (we have been together since junior year and are in our 20s). But I feel like my parents should know I am in a relationship with someone outside my race. But I am afraid they won't accept them they are harsh and racist. I don't know how to ease them into that topic without picturing my dad grabbing the shoe and hitting me. He has a slight English accent too so I also am afraid of my parents thinking he has a speech problem. Any ideas on easing them into this? Did you have a similar problem like this how did you deal with it?

you just have to tell them. Tell them you want to be honest and that there is a boy you've been seeing for a while. You want them to get to know him and then maybe invite the guy over.
I've dealt with it although I was in your bf's position. I don't think there is much easing into it. It just has to be addressed and happen. It may be tough but ultimately you will have to get your parents involved at some point for the relationship to progress0
