My mom is mixed and my dad is black. My mom doesn't care who I date as long as they make me happy but my dad only wants me to date a black guy. Like my dad doesn't even like me going around my moms family. Well I'm not really attracted to black guys. There are a few who I like but I really like this guy who's Cuban but my dad says I can't date him cause he's not black. What should I do?

What is your dad's rationale? Maybe have a talk with him to understand why he feels the way he does. Tell him that you understand his position, and you don't want to disrespect him, but you have to decide for yourself what's right for you.
It sounds like he didn't get on with your mum's family so maybe he equates 'interracial' with cultural conflict or something.
For the record I don't believe skin color has any bearing whatsoever on compatibility :)1
