ok, so i've been seeing this guy for a couple weeks, and last night we decided to make it official, as in we are a couple. I really like him, and i really like being with him. The only thing is we are boh in college and won't be going home until Thanksgiving. I want him to meet my family eventually, but i'm a little worried. He's black (im white) and while i have no problem with this and neither do my parents, most of my extended family (aunts, uncles, grandparents, etc) are pretty racist. I don't care what they think at all, i mean i know that kind of thinking is stupid and i know what's best for me. The problem is, i don't want him to be ashamed of me or where i come from. I don't want him to think that i share the same beleifs as my family and i just don't want him to be upset or mad. I don't really know how to go about talking to him about this and i could use some advice.

Talk it over with you family and work it out with them. It's obvious that deep down inside, you really do care what they think. After all, you are driven by some urge/want for him to meet them. So, if you can work it out with your family, great. If you can't work it out, either threaten them to be good or stay far, far, far away.
