Ask sis Dolly: Scary white father

The problem is he's white and he's scared to introduce me to his father because he has issues with black people.

I'm 21 and my boyfriend is 22. We've been together for three years. What should we do?

Sis Dolly answers:

The two of you need to decide what it is you would ideally like to happen. You have to consider that when he tells his father there'll be strain on your relationship if his father doesn't accept it. I always recommend honesty because I believe once things are in the open you know where you stand and can deal with the future. Decide if you can withstand the fallout. To protect both of you, I would recommend your boyfriend tell him first rather than just introduce you. That way if his father chooses to be hurtful you're not on the direct receiving end and father and son can try to work it out without you there.
