You know, it's great that your with someone who makes ya happy. All you do is smile and say, you know, we are very happy together, there's no reason to hate him. It's ONLY his skin tone. Then if he's by you walk away confidently.

I really admire the fact that you still love him even after threats and obviously teasing. I can't even express how amazing that is. Just because someone isnt the same color as the other person doesn't mean they shouldnt love eachother. Such a great example, thank you so much for this story.

A lot of the prejudice that still goes on today is based on insecurities.Maybe this is too big to talk about on this site, but some people feel that dating people from another race means that you think that someone of the same race is not good enough for you.Maybe it's the hair or the stereotypical behavior the one race likes to place on the other,but they all play into this. As much as we would want to see prejudice go away America's obsession with race is so deep in our history that 50,60 years of reform and change won't get rid of centuries worth of racial divide.

I'm amazed people still care about this. My boyfriend is black and I'm white and I've never been threatened. However, we are teased sometimes with our friends about his race but it's just in a funny way. it doesn't bother him at all. we both laugh about it and he'll make jokes about it too. We've been together 9 months. Love has nothing to do with race or what you look like. If you two are happy together please don't let anyone ruin it for you guys! best of luck in your relationship!!(:

Race shouldn't matter, but I know the feeling. My mom is black and my dad is white. I live in a cookie cutter suburb with little diversity, so it's hard hearing racial jokes, and stuff like that. It's hard when race is seen as an issue, but you have to stay strong.

I dated a black guy for about 1 year. During that time people constantly made fun of me. Even though it was hard and I thought of breaking up with him just so I didn't have to deal with it anymore, I had fun! and I don't regret staying with him. If you like him stay strong, and keep going!
