Okay as some of you know I have been talking to a very nice guy; but I have one slight problem and its not with him. He's hisspanic not sure what descent just know very dark complicted. And my problem isn't with him its my family they are all VERY prejudice. And am not sure how to handle that my cousin on dad's side says I should just do my own thing and let the family deal with it but I don't know if I should handle that now or just what and see if they even say anything. I hate that my family is like that but they are and I can't change them. My cousin had a baby and her baby's father is black and my dad disowned her. And gets mad when we talk to her and we were raised with her. She was like another little sister to me. Every weekend we used to meet at her grandmothers, my aunt's, house and play and have a good time. But now that we are grown we don't get to see her much but my sister and I still love her very much. My dad was so mad that he only talks to her on a have to basis. And so how do I deal with that. Do I just ignore it. I know I am not going to let my family decide what I can and cannot do with my personal life but how do you change people that are so prejudice that they think words like the n word and other hurtful words are acceptable.
