Give him a chance, there's no reason it couldn't work. I'm Caucasian and my husband is half Filipino, half Japanese. Neither his parents, or my parents had any problem with us while we're dating, or now that we're married. His parents absolutely love me and accepted me from day one, and even if that wasn't the case and they were racist/judgmental about the fact that we're different races, it wouldn't make the slightest bit of difference to me or my husband. It's about OUR happiness, no one else's. Besides, if I had someone that negative and close minded in my life, I would eliminate them altogether - family or not. I personally have never experienced any negativity regarding this, be it from friends, family, acquaintances or strangers, but even if I did, I wouldn't let it affect me. It's ultimately about what YOU want. Think about it - it's you that has to spend your time and energy on this guy, not them, so why should anyone else's opinion matter? It's about what makes YOU happy. Just remember, no matter what you do, you'll never be able to please everyone so just concentrate on pleasing yourself. Who cares if they care? I highly doubt you'll experience any racism regarding this, but if you do, just brush it off and be thankful you're more open minded and enlightened than their troubled souls will ever be! Be thankful you're contributing to creating a more accepting society, rather than conforming to what a minority of close minded people would prefer - by not dating him for fear of backlash. Besides all of that, we do live in a much more accepting society than we used to, and the vast majority of people are mixed ethnicities themselves, or open to dating those who are a different ethnicity than themselves. It's pretty much the ''norm'' to see interracial couples together, therefore people are less likely to give you a problem about it. So, to sum it up, if you like this guy, definitely give him a chance! Get to know him for who he is, and if all is well, go ahead and date him. Good luck! :)
