My family is very self-focused and prejudice. They have said that they do not want me to be seen in public with anyone that is not of my race or religion. Doing this would "look bad on the family." These demands have only gotten worse since I began an interracial relationship with a wonderful man. I'm 25 and a college grad but I have not saved enough money to move out yet. I feel like I should respect their wishes if I still live under their roof but I don't want to give up my relaionship. How do you deal with family that threatens to disown you if you don't agree with and follow their way of thinking??????
