WHITE DAUGHTER LIKING BLACK BOYS ONLY

I KNOW THIS WILL PROBABLY CAUSE DRAMA BUT ID REALLY LIKE SOME ADVICE. MY 13 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER HAS RECENTLY STARTED HANGING OUT WITH ALL BLACK KIDS, AND SHE LIKES A BLACK BOY. SHE TOLD ME THAT THEY WERE HER TYPE OF PEOPLE.

I HONESTLY DONT WANT THAT FOR HER, I WANT HER TO STAY WITHIN HER OWN RACE. WHAT SHOULD I DO? I KNOW THERE HAVE TO BE OTHER MOMS OUT THERE WHO AGREE, WHITE OR BLACK, THAT WANT THEIR KIDS TO STAY WITH THEIR OWN RACE.

  • Did you chose to fall in love with your DH or did it just happen? My guess is it just happened. So, why should she have to love someone you chose?

  • you can't choose for your child.. she has to decide this for herself.. maybe she isn't being accepted by her own race for some reason or she just relates better to a different culture.

  • You can't force her to date who you want her to date. That would make her want to date them even more. She's only 13. She's not getting married anytime soon. You don't have to worry quite yet about your grandchildren being 1/2 black.

    As a black woman, I am appalled by how your feel, yet I don't know how to or want to change your mind. Hopefully (and it seems like she does) your daughter will know better.

  • People are people. The color of their skin should not matter. I feel sorry that you want your child to be prejudiced against anyone. We all bleed the same color and want what is best for our children - no matter what our skin color.

    I would be proud that my child could see past something that you obviously cannot.
