Ask Bill & Dave

What to do when people hate on your love

 
 
People don’t like that my BF is black and I’m not. I don’t care what they think, but we’ve been threatened. I’m afraid for our safety if we don’t break up.

 

Bill: It’s amazing we’re dealing with this issue in the 21st century. Of course, you shouldn’t break up if you care about each other. Tell the proper authorities about the threats and, hopefully, this sort of prejudice can be put into a time capsule.
 
Dave: Idiotic threats take on even greater significance when made because of race. That’s why special laws address what are known as “hate crimes.” Have an adult intervene before one occurs.
