I had no idea it was like this. I was worried about my white suburban family being rude to him (black), but I learned it goes both ways. If I don't always act nice and smile at his family, they've told me they'll assume it's because I'm racist. This is what THEY said- they assume I'm racist and if I don't prove myself, they'll always think that.
I want to cry. How naive of me to think racial barriers didn't exist. They do and his family will never accept me. I'll never be enough because I'm a white woman.
I'm sure not every family is like this. This one happens to be though, and it really sucks.
