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.
