I come from a traditional Italian family with, what I like to call, "mild racism". Over the past couple of years I started dating black men with about 90% family disapproval. During most large family get-togethers I am witness to some racial comments that I personally find offensive. I know my family has probably always acted this way, but I am much more sensitive to it now. Do I even bother trying to stop them. Or just hold my tongue and swallow my urge to point out they are possibly saying things that are wrong, ignorant, or just plain mean? I have not brought any of my dates around my family yet, so there have been no incidents of them actively insulting anyone. Any thoughts?
