Be strong, babe. Some people ARE a color and some people HAVE a color. Sounds like you have yours and have figured out it is just something that sits on top of the body and has nothing to do with who the person is. Good for you! Sorry have to have less understanding parents.

so true i mean we're all pretty much the same on the inside

Here's a little help you can shove down your dad's throat. It's a quote from a true story called 'Talk Radio'. Excellent movie.<br />
Here is his reasoning...<br />
<br />
As one white man to another, let me ask you a question.<br />
"Do you know how much money white Americans spend every year on suntan lotion?"<br />
"165 Million Dollars!!!"<br />
"That's a lot of money just to turn brown. Do you know why they want to turn brown? They wanna turn brown because they secretly want to be black! Do you know why they want to be black? Because they feel sexually inferior, that's why!!!

lol o yeah im so telling him that

Hey, positivebeing (post below) has a point. You don't need approval from others to lead a happy life, just your own, but stay-open minded, and learn from EVERYTHING you experience. Because trust me, I know first hand, even during the hard negative times, if you stay open-minded, at some point those negatives will turn out to be positives whether they are for you or something you do for someone else or both.
You my not understand this quote below, but it is a piece from the famous philosopher, 'Lacan' and he hit it right on the head......it just may change your whole outlook on everything......

Living by your wants will never make you happy. What it means to be fully human is to strive to live by ideas and ideals, and not to measure your life by what you've attained in terms of your desires, but those small moments of integrity, compassion, rationality…even self-sacrifice.
Because in the end, the ONLY way that we can measure the significance of our own lives is by valuing the lives of others.

Oh dear!!! Don't feel alone and low. It's his own fault he's racist...perhaps it's not even racism and more jealousy because he still has something for you mom.<br />
<br />
Either way, you are in the RIGHT!!!!! So damnit! You put your foot down and teach your dad a thing or two!!!!!!!<br />
<br />
You can do it! I have faith in you! Stand up to authority, question everything!!! Don't grow up a sheep! Have a mind of your own!!<br />
<br />
Best of luck,<br />
you can do it.<br />
Steve
