How racist is your family? Would they treat you differently if you met a romantic partner of a different race or religion? Would they disown you?

My dad often goes on racist tirades about blacks, Hispanics, etc. in private but his best friend is a Jew so idk really how he would react. I think my mom and sister would just be happy I found someone.

Anonymous 23108

I'm too distant to them for them to care.

My mom initially discouraged me from dating someone with middle eastern culture but I didn't care at that point already

I come from a latino fam and some are pretty racists. Most are just casually racist like most older people. Like they’ll make jokes about Asian accents or call all Asians “Chinos” which means Chinese in spanish. But most of it isn’t done with malicious intent. In regards to dating, my parents don’t really care about the race of my potential bf. Although my parents seem to be less keen on me dating a black guy.

Anonymous 23110

It’s complicated. My parents are not racist, at all. But they have always been very clear my siblings and I can only marry Catholics. The end.
They have non-Catholic friends, and honestly like our non-Catholic friends, but marriage? They would have to convert.

i don't think my parents would care, but my extended family on my mom's side has definitely complained about 'Mexicans moving into our towns taking our jobs' etc. and are pro-Trump.
Kind of makes me sick when they talk about 'running them out of town on a rail'. I don't know if they're just using that as an expression or what. They do all come from a small town in Alabama and I have no idea why they're complaining after pic related.
but my current bf is Hispanic (although he has a white-collar job) and I would never want to take him to a family reunion because i don't trust my uncles not to be assholes.

Anonymous 23116

Not that anon but I’d say so. You’d be much more compatible with someone who’s from the same religion as you (unless you’re just Catholic in name only). Also it’s easier to raise children when you share the same values and beliefs. Basically it doesn’t matter what race/nationality they are, it matters what their beliefs are. Most of the times, marrying someone from a different religion just doesn’t work. Either that or one of them end up leaving their own religion and converting to their partner’s religion.

>tfw mixed race but white mom still stereotypes ethnic men

I wouldn't even say she's racist. She just has something bad to say about most races of men in regards to romantic relationships.

The thing is men of all races are generally shit to women, so she isn't wrong just…why stop at brown and black guys. If anything I'd be even more wary dating a white guy in case he goes full /pol/tard.

It's kind of whatever though. I'm sure if I brought a brown guy home (probable since I prefer darker men) and he was a sweetheart she'd be fine. She just fears for me.

My family isn't very PC since they're from the Balkans, but they're actually not racist, misogynistic or homophobic at all. Ironically some of my friends think the country they grew up in and I was born in is this gay, black-hating shithole even though they grew up in Yugoslavia which was the place for African and Middle Eastern exchange students in the 70s and 80s and most of my aunts were economists, dentists etc with pretty hefty paycheques.
They'd still have an aneurysm if I married a Muslim but that's because I'm Jewish and until recently I lived in an area where we weren't treated very kindly by Muslim immigrants. I've personally mostly hung out with Moroccans since my uni is full of them but I understand where they're coming from and their fears are unfortunately very real even though I've personally not had any problems.

Anonymous 23163

Mum probably wouldn't care, but my dad is racist as shit towards Arabs, all Muslims and blacks. I'd probably get disowned for dating one. He's cool with everyone else as far as I know, but I bet if we were American he'd go in on Mexicans too because he's just like that.

It doesn't really matter to me, the chances of me meeting a guy I want to date so badly I'd risk my relationship with my dad are low. Even if he's racist, he's still worth 1000x what any potential romantic partner might be.

There are mostly atheists in my family. I doubt they would mind if my boyfriend was religious unless he would be very strict about his religion and would force me to do things.

It's hard because I do like their family values, forget about religion for a minute but they are very family based and I think it's sweet, I don't like the whole sending your parents into a care home mentality and I wouldn't like my kids to do that to me, at least they look after their parents but oh well.

I don't know how hard it was for him, he seemed to be very into it even though he himself wasn't very aware.
They are very strict in their convictions and having a partner that isn't part of it is an offense worhty of punishment. That usually means breaking ties with your family and your community, so it's a very serious decison. We were very young so his family was always trying to change me, hoping I'd eventually convert. They were always friendly with me, but it was set in stone from the beginning that there would be no future. That was difficult to see for two dumb teen loners.
He wasn't allowed to do many things, but by far the most shocking for me was being made to sign some document that forbade doctors from giving him a blood transfusion in case of an emergency. His parents would only allow him to travel with that in his backpack. I was always terrified of something happening. Last time we talked he was still a loner, he can only date women from his religion but he also doesn't want to date them. Complicated stuff.

I took refuge in a song from Taizé - Ubi caritas et Amor, Deus ibi est. "Where charity and love are true, God is there". I repeated it in my head as a mantra at the time and in one instance shared it with him. Gave us hope that there was something universal. But it was not that simple.

Anonymous 23309

they're all a bunch of crazies but it's interesting. I know of a JW family in my town through my family members and the father got a blood transfusion so he wouldn't die and the family keeps it secret from the church. Their adopted son is no longer JW (or at least doesn't show up to any of their bs?) has been married to non-JW people like 3 times now, and they still see him and love him and whatnot which I think isn't supposed to happen. because my family was familiar enough with theirs there were JW doorknockers sent to my house at least once a week trying to convert us basically and my hippie mom is too dim to realize what they're doing and that they don't "just want to talk" so I had to tell them in so many words to fuck off and they finally did.

That’s what appeals to me - my mom talks about empathy and helping others, my neighbor and her friends do things to help others.
Here’s your next bit, per mom; ‘pro-lifers only care until they’re born, then they can starve.’
The only time my mother talks about poor kids is when she’s ranting about my neighbors or telling me who to vote for, otherwise she ignores them.
My neighbors do everything from food to food banks to habitat for humanity to missions to South America where they build schools and dig wells in poor rural villages.

look, it sounds like we've had radically different experiences, because from what i've learned being amongst these people, the social niceties like 'oh i heard you were sick, i brought you a casserole' are a thin veneer over a flaming pile of garbage. volunteering is great and all but plenty of those kids volunteered at charities and then went back to school and spent their days making fun of others and pushing them down the stairs. your neighbors might be nice people, but catholicism =/= infallible quality of character. so focus on that instead of being like 'hmm religion seems like it'll make everything better'.

I agree, you don't need a religion to tell you you should be nice, you can do that on your own. Besides I live in a catholic country and only a very small minority of people are like in >>23371 - it's not about religion, it's about personality and upbringing.

nobody is saything that anyone 'must be terrible because they're catholic', they're saying that your decision to convert to catholicism because you associate it with being a good person is a false equivalent. religion isn't what makes you a good person.
you can go ahead and join whatever church you want, but if you're converting solely because you admire their lifestyle, realize that it has nothing to do with their faith. they're just nice people. you'll find those in all walks of life.

I mean, Catholics preach that sexuality should be reserved for procreation. In this context, BC is forbidden to discourage immoral behaviour, not because it is inherently evil.
The consequences of both rules are also not comparable. And in the end, you can avoid having sex, but you can't avoid a medical emergency with massive blood loss.

I hope you are not being serious. There is absolutely nothing positive for women about Islam's view of sexuality. Being turned into a replaceable commodity for some dude is not better than being abstinent. Being sold as a wife and raped as a young kid is not better than holding your urges until you're a responsible and commited adult. They have "temporary marriage" contracts in Iran that allow for halal prostitution. Where are the Catholic women in burqas? They are asked to be chaste but not to abandon their humanity.

I'm not even very religious but Islam's and the modern world's view of sexuality is an insult to intimacy.

Anonymous 23454

There are several domains where Islam is clearly more lenient. For instance, in Islamic law, reversible modes of contraception, and also abortion, are permissible under certain circumstances (however legality of the former, e.g. use of male condoms, is contingent on the wife's permission).

Catholic-affiliated charity amounts to 17 percent of the funds spent by nonprofits on social services.

Protestant and secular charities count for over 80%. Doesn't that mean, by your own logic, that protestants and non-religious people are better people overall? those guys have no problem with gay marriage, sexual relationships, and the idea that the earth is round, either.

Anonymous 23465

Catholics are the ones who have no issues with the round Earth, anon. That's a Protestant idea in current year, more specifically a niche American one. And where do those stats apply? Are they American? European? Being anti gay-marriage is not a Catholic thing either, it's a Christian thing.

Bit irrelevant considering everything else. Divorce is allowed in Islam. That already changes everything, in the sense that you wouldn't want a bunch of fatherless kids running around.

Yep, American. Which has the 4th largest population of Catholics in the world, beating out even Italy. If you can find the statistics on what percentage of charities in the top three Catholic countries are run by the Catholic church, go ahead and post it here.

Also re: 'it's not a Catholic thing, it's a Christian thing'


And sure, you can argue that the Flat Earth Society is a representation of Protestantism, because they quote the Bible as being evidence for their beliefs + are not Catholic, but you also have to realize that their members only numbered something like 3,500 worldwide at their peak (in 2017, that number had dwindled to about 500). If small percentage of (questionably) Protestant people is what you feel justifies your views on Protestantism, is it fine for me to judge the Catholic Church based on the over 4,000 Catholic priests who are on record as being accused of child abuse?

My mom is pretty against racism. She's half Puerto Rican so when she grew up in Puerto Rico, she was bullied for looking white. But when she came to the US for university and work she was discriminated against for looking Hispanic and being a woman, since she works in a field dominated by men.
On my Dad's side (he is white), he dislikes Indians because there have been a lot of them coming to the city he lives, he thinks they are bad drivers, rude, arrogant, and incompetent in the field he works in.
I don't think they would care that much about what race my romantic partner was if I had one, they would probably prefer I get with someone who looks like and comes from a similar background as me though. I think that is natural.

>Catholics preach that sexuality should be reserved for procreation
Catholics can have sex just for fun without deliberately trying for a baby every time so long as they're not doing anything to deliberately frustrate the procteative end of having sex. Like there are many times when women are naturally less fertile like when breastfeeding and around your period, it's not a sin to have sex during those times just because it's fun to get it on.

all this started out because anon-with-the-neighbors made >>23256 and >>23290 extrapolating that if they joined a religion, they could 'make their own Catholic family', presumably because they dislike their own (non-Catholic) family situation and imagine that it would improve with the addition of religion. When it is pointed out that converting or being born into a Catholic family in no way guarantees that you will grow up to be a decent member of society, they (and you, apparently) seem to have interpreted it as a personal attack.

Feeling like you are being insulted (specifically, being called stupid) because your experience with one Catholic family is very different from my experience with over 250 Catholic children & their respective home situations + their teachers sounds like you're taking this way too personally. I even tried to clarify:
>look, it sounds like we've had radically different experiences
which does not invalidate your experience, it just means that mine has been very different and you should take your own with a grain of salt. Once you actually get involved with the Catholic community outside of one family that you know, you might be disappointed.
Re: Abortions:
the Catholic view on abortion is overwhelmingly negative and they have consistently condemned it. The reason why it's suggested that you lack empathy is not because someone you know is pro-life, but because you yourself spoke about converting to that religion, and are willing to call your own mother 'a judgmental, close-minded, self-righteous hypocrite' for being pro-choice.

And that was one of the kids who was keeping it together at school and not an out-and-out bully or drug addict. The point being that even though people's lives look superficially perfect, you never know what's actually going on behind closed doors.

literally everything i've been saying is based on personal interactions/anecdote.

and the reason why people might assume that you only know one family is that you've only mentioned/defended interacting with one family instead of the Catholic community on a larger scale. you've never even said whether you've been to church, just: 'i know this family who's Catholic, their lives seem so perfect, they invite me over for dinner sometimes, I hate my mom and I'm thinking of converting'. so yeah, based on the information provided, your understanding of Catholicism and your reasons for converting sound incredibly flimsy. Maybe expound upon that next time instead of getting fussy about 'you sound just like my mom! reee i hate my mom!!'

i've been fairly fucking civil this whole conversation, and you're the one who's stooped to personal attacks and taken everything above in the most insulting way it could possibly be interpreted. you sure are a shining example of christian values, huh? yep, definitely changing my mind about those catholics now.
you're actually a great example of the point i was trying to make: catholicism isn't a bastion for the morally virtuous. if someone's a shitty person, they'll be shitty regardless of what religion they associate themselves with.
but hey, prove me wrong. i'm sure being lectured by a priest every sunday on the value of humility, loving and forgiving your enemies, honoring your family, and turning the other cheek will really improve your personality. or it might just make you more self-righteous than you already are (which seems impossible.)

the difference between a lecture and a conversation is that the audience doesn't get to respond to a lecture. you've had plenty of chances to defend your stance in this situation, you just choose to complain about being lectured instead of actually formulating a coherent response.

Not in my experience.

I'm fine with latins and blacks, but fuck the jews and arabs.

You chose a poor father.

Whole intact families involved in a community have a better life. What part of that don't you like?

Anonymous 23923

anon hasn't mentioned anything about her father so idk what you're talking about

>whole intact families involved in a community have a better life

by that logic, living with the Branch Davidians at the Mount Carmel Center should have been great, right? Whole intact family - check, community living - check. What's not to like?

My parents would disown me if I dated a black man. Muslims/Arabs are also probably out of the question, but everyone else is alright with them.

>mfw somebody is this angry because my family talks shit about hispanics while i date one

it's a vent thread, not a virtue signalling thread.
>because racism would have gotten you lots of attention that you crave

we're on an anonymous image board. this isn't any form of social media. what is the point of doing or saying anything 'for attention'?

Anonymous 25164

Not her and I am not part of the argument/don't necessarily agree with her but people do a lot of shit to get attention on imageboards, even as anon lol

My mom is a massive racist. She wants my boyfriend to be white and white only (I'm not even white and I'm from a latino country). But more than racist, she is classist as shit. In fact, she is more racist than a lot of rich people I've met…

Dad is more chill about him.

A lot of minorities see breaking into white society as a way to break the cycle they find themselves in. Right or wrong, "only date white if you can" isn't bad advice from a purely practical standpoint, especially for women of color who have to overcome the barriers associated with sex AND race.

My dad really doesn't want me getting involved with Chinese and to a lesser extent Koreans. They wouldn't disown me they just worry there might be inlaw tension.
Dad has suggested that I should avoid blacks because of a "potential to be harmed".

My family wouldn't allow me to be with anyone who wasn't a muslim or from our particular country, I don't plan on ever getting married though.

Lmao, even in the fucking liberal paradise of America we are hated bahaha. That's rich, honestly Americans wonder why so many muslim kids get radicalized its cause this constant feeling of exclusion that is pushed onto them, fucking disgusting.

did you even read the chain of comments lol

They exclude themselves. The Muslims I see here, mostly on my college campus, all cluster together. They won't speak English and they won't interact with non-Muslims. They're all super fucking entitled and rude too.

Can confirm. My mom isn't very proud about her black heritage (she got afro-latino family from her mother-side). I honestly don't care? I just want my bf to love me. I'm not with him because he is white-passing, I'm with since he is sweet and loving.

My family isn't that racist, at least I think. I come from a Hispanic family and we have black and white family members.
My dad and mom once went on a tangent about the n-word and the difference between using "-a" and "-er". It might've been seen as offensive, but looking back it was them educating themselves.
My mom used to make fun of Asian people a lot, she shortly stopped after her Korean boss at work informed her the word "oriental" wasn't an umbrella term for Asians lul.
Other than that, they're not afraid of anybody of any race. They just hate people who get on their nerves.

What's weird is my aunts/uncles on my dad's side of the family have mixed black kids and my mom's side of the family has mixed white kids. I'm the only offspring in the family who has two Hispanic parents.
My parents haven't given me any restrictions on who to date, except saying the metaphor "don't marry anybody like your dad".

is your dad black or why exactly was your mom worried that you would turn out like them?

also sad at you being limited to that pool of candidates

my dads skin-tone is confusing.. slightly.he has tan lines (permanent) >pic related
so his natural skin tone is not dark at-all, but i do have a younger sister who has an afro and dark olive skin.
my mum is very light and ended up looking like her more. and because me being the lightest in the family, my mother would spoil me more than my other siblings and i remember her always telling me how im lucky for being light and so on and so fourth and how our cousins are very unfortunate and it will be difficult for marriage in the future if they are also limited to muslim arab guys.

i find extremely light eyes, like enough to see the iris, pretty creepy too. "muh light eyes master race" is a bit of a meme, like it matters at all if the person is already ugly.

They don't outwardly disapprove but they do seem uncomfortable.

I think they're mostly just happy/relieved to see that I'm actually interacting with other people.

replying to old post, but yes sexuality is taught to be meant for procreation but also as a way to bond with someone in marriage. i remember being taught this in my catholic middle school, according to the textbook we had. yes, sex was still taught as something in marriage only, but it wasn't taught to be something just to make kids with, but also a loving experience with the person you love.

Do you live in France?

Sort of. Not violently racist or anything. Racist like how white people are who aren't trying to be woke.
If I dated someone of a different race, they'd just be happy I had someone, but they would be weird if I got married to him and had kids. First question my dad always asks whenever I mention a guy is if he's black lmao.
