Tell your dad that you understand that he has his prejiduces and you do not have a plan to change that. However (tell him) that out of respect for you, he should be respectful of your Native friend.

Best Answer

If you love your boyfriend and you can picture a future with him, then the way your dad feels won't matter.

Best Answer

not much. <br />
find a way to love and respect each other.<br />
you're stuck with him and you can't change him.<br />
tell him that this is important to you and you need him to accept it even though he doesn't agree with it.

Best Answer

You should respect your father. <br />

(That is also native tradition)

Best Answer

Ask him what's stronger, his love and respect for you and your decisions, or his hatred of a person he doesn't even know yet.<br />
<br />
If anything, given historical context, I think the native fellow has more right to hate the white man (I'm assuming you're a white family) than vice-versa. Just sayin'.

You're right.
And my dad is white, but my mother is Mexican

Is he being racist or does he just not like this guy? Is he racist in other aspects or towards other people? <br />

I had a preacher tell me once, "The bible says you have to honor your mother and father, not do everything they tell you to do"
