Racist Family A
For My Parents and Sisters


I have grown up all my life with racism and I am expected by my family to belive in this way.I am from a white family and a small community with very little diversity. Until I moved out I never really knew anyone from a different race than my own.

My best friend is Hispanic and I have quite a few other friends that are as well. My family didn't have a major problem with this. The problem came in when I fell in love with a Hispanic man. Since we have been together my family rarely speaks to me, refuses to even meet him, and basically states that if I choose him I will lose my family. This is a very hard thing for me to think about because I have chosen to spend the rest of my life with him. Please pray for God to show my family that they are being irrational. Show them that God created this world as a great big mixing pot of diversity. I have never understood how anyone can judge someone by the color of thier skin or anything else for that matter. I did not choose to be white...God chose that for me. Dan did not choose to be hispanic...God chose that for him. People choose to be ignorant when it comes to racism. Please pray for God to teach my family to accept my decisions and to love me no matter what those decisions are.

In His Majesty's Name may your family be cleansed and purifyed in mind and body but most of all in spirit.
Accept that the flesh is weak therefore they will falter but with spiritual cleansing thier out look will be changed.For the Lord did say that there will exsist different dominations, tribes, blessings and the list goes on.
So with time and much prayer they will be healed.
You dear must also not fear being locked off from them for you too have your future ahead, a new family that you can mold and shape , changing the racisim trend in the family.
Have hope in the Creator, The Christ, for he endures forever.
Blessed you are.

I to am married to a Hispanic. I am from India and to marry outside our race is looked upon harshly. I married a man from my own faith who cares about me and love me. My family saw that and except him. They saw he respected me, our religion, my family and culture. Your family will soon realize that also and your will have their support. I will pary for your happiness and for your parents.

Lord, I ask that you bless your child and that you open her families eyes. i ask that you show them that the character of a person is how they act and how they treat others and not how they look. Lord, I pray that you touch this families life and that they see that we are all children of the same Father.

MY DEAR YOUNG FRIEND I TOO KNOW THE HARDBREAK OF RACISM. I WAS A SINGLE MOTHER, HARD WORKING AND RELIED HEAVILY ON MY FAITH TO MAKE IT THROUGH EACH DAY. I NEVER THOUGHT OF RACISM ALTHOUGH MY PARENTS WERE. WELL ONE DAY I FOUND OUT FROM THE POLICE THAT BOTH MY SONS YOUNG TEENAGERS AT THE TIME WERE PART OF THE SKINHEAD MOVEMENT. MY OLDEST WAS PUBLISHING A MAGAZIE FOR IT. THE POLICE HAD COME TO MY WORK TO TELL ME THAT MY OLDEST SON THEN 18 HAD NEARLY BEEN KILLED IN A DRIVE BY SHOOTING WITH AUTOMATIC WEAPONS INVOLVED. MY HEART WAS BROKEN. MANY YEARS LATER THEY ARE BOTH FATHERS, MARRIED WORKING HARD THAT PART OF THEIR LFE LONG GONE AND LOCKED AWAY. THANKS BE TO GOD.

HONEY THERE IS NO COLOR IN GODS EYES. HOW DARE ANYONE MISTREAT OR JUDGE ONE HIS CHILDREN WHEN HE DOESNT! PLEASE TRUST YOUR HEART AND YOUR FAITH TO MOVE YOU IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. REMEMBER YOU CANT CHANGE YOUR PARENTS BELIEFS BUT YOU CAN PRAY FOR THEM TO BE RELEASED FROM THE HOLDS OF PREJUDICE.

I PRAY FOR YOUR HAPPINESS THAT YOUR FAITH IN GOD REMAIN STRONG AND THAT YOUR PARENTS WILL CONTINUE TO LOVE AND HOLD YOU KNOW MATTER WHAT YOU DECIDE. IF NOT GOD WILL HOLD YOU ALWAYS, HE WILL NEVER FORSAKE YOU. I WILL BE PRAYING FOR YOU AS HE ANSWERED MY PRAYERS FOR MY SONS MANY YEARS AGO. THOSE DAYS WERE SO DARK, BUT THERE WAS LIGHT AGAIN WHEN GOD STEPPED IN. MAY GOD BLESS AND WATCH OVER YOU--AMEN

Dear Father, I pray that You bless this woman and strengthen her faith. Shine your light upon her family; take away the hatred and darkness in their hearts; keep them united in love with their daughter and her husband to be; remind them that in Your heavenly kingdom we are all children of God. Help them to become released from their racism, that they might better serve You and Your kingdom. I ask these things through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

I hope you see it in your heart to forgive your racist family for passing
judgement upon your friend based on his skin color.

You best believe I will NEVER pass judgement upon any living being because
of race, identity, creed, religion, sexual orientation or misdeed they may have done in the past.

I don't speak much Spanish, but I can say one phrase:

Vaya con Dios!
Go with God!

I pray that your family may realize that Love holds no race, and that the world is becoming more mixed and beautiful as we speak. Goddess, please show them the light that comes from Your pure love, so that her family may grow to accept her relationship. So Mote it Be.
