My parents are an interracial couple, my dad's a white guy from Pennsylvania and my mom's a Hispanic lady from Honduras, they met each other in Louisiana. But my grandma on my dad's side was pretty shitty to my mom, I was really young so I thought it was normal for your grandma and mom to hate eachother, until I started becoming more aware and noticed how she treated her other daughter in laws who are all white, and realized that compared to them she was treating my mom pretty badly
In high school, my Korean Mom forbade my sister from going to Prom because her date was black.
My boyfriend is white, my family hates him. Parents have reached the "if we ignore him, maybe he'll go away" stage and my sisters have taken me aside each holiday to point out to me how unsuitable he is for me and for the family.
So. Much. Fun.
So my brother brought his black girlfriend home from college to meet our family including our 76 year old white grandma. A couple weeks later I was talking to my grandma and asked what she though of my bros girlfriend. My grandma had a positive outlook on their relationship and said at least he didn't bring home a jap home or she'd have to slit his throat.
Not exactly interracial, but I am a mixed Hispanic/white woman who has dated a lot of Hispanic guys. I've had to deal with a lot of people from my white side complaining about me dating Hispanic men, as if they've forgotten that I am half Hispanic myself, and my father is married to a Hispanic woman. Very uncomfortable, to say the least.
“So is he mixed or are both of his parents Orientals?”
I am a total white boy and my GF is hispanic. Her parents are very cool and nice to me and speak english when I am around. Her extended family is 50/50 I notice the younger relatives are super cool with me but the older gen wont speak english to me. My GF has yelled at uncles and stuff because they will talk in english until I sit down then they will switch to spanish. I am trying to learn spanish and can hold my own in a basic conversation but I cant keep up with in depth convos.
My family doesnt give a shit.
Warned my SO that I might be a North Korean spy. I am not at all Korean.
I’m white, wife is black. Grandma (91) told my wife she was surprised she was out on the boat with me.
Said “I didn’t think you would be comfortable being out in deep water.”
Grandma says insane stuff all the time, but usually not insane racist stuff.
People in the Philippines worship white people, as such when i got a white girlfriend, everyone was all over her.
My gf is black and my Hispanic family was really interested with my life a few years back when I had a white gf. My aunt and my cousin would message me ask when me and my gf will come visit my family. Now I heard absolutely nothing from them concerning my gf they don't even ask how I'm doing anymore.
Half black guy here. My grandmother-in-law has said to me that she isn't racist, she just thinks people were made different races for a reason. She's never elaborated, and I've never asked her what she meant.
On the other side of my wife's family, I still haven't met my father-in-law because he hates non-white people.
My wife is Korean, so as a gag gift my father purchased me a 1992 traveler's guide to Thailand.
Because you know... Asia.
I'm white and my wife is half black, fairly light skinned. My mom's Aunt once had this awkward as fuck conversation with me at a family gathering about how you can "barely tell" and my wife does not "act it" at all. WTF all that even means I don't know. My wife like me is from rural West Virginia and so is my great aunt.
The hilarious part is I believe this was her way of trying to be nice about it and explain that she was accepting of it. We still catch a lot of shit for almost never bringing my kids around her and that side of the family. Last time we were at a family gathering and my mom invited that side of the family, great aunt offered to teach my kids how to swim.
I introduced my Latino ex-bf of mine to my aunt's husband, who is the most bigoted human being I've ever met. The first thing he said was that he'd kick his daughter's ass if she ever brought a boy home with darker skin than his. I was horrified, choked out a "Well, my parents LOVE him," and for the remaining year and a half I dated this guy, I refused to bring him to any gatherings where this man was going to be. There was no reason to put someone I cared about through that sort of racial abuse.
Fiancé is Mexican, I'm your generic white bread. We have a 6 month old baby.
My paternal grandmother is a subtle racist, doesn't like Hispanics. When I moved high schools she'd say shit like, "Oh, be careful, there's a lot of Mexicans at that school." I ignored her because my dad gets mad if I blow up on her.
While I'm pregnant, my fiancé is speaking Spanish to his family at our baby shower. He walks away for a minute. Grandma says, "God, I'm so glad your baby won't be Mexican." My sister dies of laughter as I roll my eyes and look at my dad like, "Can I blow up NOW?"
Dad: "Uh, ma...he WILL be Mexican. That's kinda how genetics work."
Her: "No, it comes from the mother's side."
Me: "Oh, so that's where all of your bitchiness stems from. Good to know. Also, fiancé will be teaching Son Spanish, so have fun with that. Not that you'll ever see this baby."
And she never has.
My ex boyfriends family made war whoops at me and called me a redskin.
aaaaand my ex actually got mad at *me* for getting mad at them for it.
Apparently it's way worse to call people racists than for people to say racist things.
