Lindsay Czarniak, wife of TODAY co-host Craig Melvin, is continuing her conversations about race in a new Instagram video where she sits down with her own mother to discuss the topic. Earlier this month, Czarniak talked to her mother-in-law Betty Jo Melvin about the moment she learned her son was dating a white woman and this time, she flipped the question and asked her mom what she thought when she learned her daughter was dating a Black man. Thanks tczarniak for being willing to share so much,” Czarniak, 42, explained in the video caption. In the video, Czarniak asks her mom, Terri Czarniak, what it was like finding out about her budding relationship with Craig. Instead, what she really wanted to know was, “‘Is he a nice guy? Czarniak also talks to her mom, who worked as an educator and a principal, about how she viewed issues surrounding race growing up in a community in Pennsylvania that was not diverse. Her mom said that there was only one Black family in her community when she was growing up and that even though she was aware of the protest movements in the late s, she was very sheltered from what was going on in the world and thought that it did not affect her. Super naive.

From the topic Life. Allie Dowdle says her parents refused to give her any more cash saying they didn’t approve of the relationship. Writing on her GoFundMe page , Allie said: “As I am 18, my parents have chosen to no longer support my future, stripping me of all my resources. Allie says she and Michael Swift dated for around a year after first telling her parents but that the issue came to a head before Christmas after Michael approached her parents again. She claims after that conversation, she was cut off by her parents and no longer has access to her personal savings, car and phone and can’t afford to pay for her education any more.
I couldn’t comprehend how someone could be seen as less because of pigment. I still can’t comprehend it, and I never will be able to. Bill Dowdle says that his daughter’s comments are a “justification” giving her the moral high ground and said that he and his wife would accept anyone their daughter dated. But he said there were “issues” involved with biracial dating in the south of America and he’d cut his daughter off because she’d started dating black student Michael Swift in secret.
Tamron Hall Addresses Criticism Of Her Interracial Marriage, Says ‘Black Men Did Not Fail’ Her
I posed the question to a group of my girlfriends one evening not long ago, as we sat on the rooftop of Latitude Bar and Grill, among a mixed crowd of something professionals, sipping margaritas and enjoying the last days of a New York summer. The collective response was a nonchalant who cares , with all agreeing that the topic has been overly probed in the media.

What traits would you hope the person your child is dating would have? Well to some people race is also on that list, but not for Mississipi mother Heather Boyer. Recently, her daughter began dating someone new, who happened to also be black and she undoubtedly approved because of the way he treated her.
He had all the characteristics that she felt her daughter deserved in a boyfriend, but when her daughter changed her profile picture to an image of the young couple, her mom received a racist text that revealed the sad truth that not everyone shared her views on what mattered in a relationship.

Infamous former ‘Teen Mom’ star Farrah Abraham says she doesn’t date black men
Upset as she was, Farr remembered the rules imposed by her own Irish-Italian parents, who had once forbidden her from dating anyone who was black or Puerto Rican. And many of her friends’ parents, she later learned, had also imposed similar rules on their children. She was determined to fight for her beau, and he for his parents to accept her. Farr, who lives in Los Angeles, talks here about the road to acceptance within her husband’s family, how her parents changed their attitudes about race and love, and the road that lies ahead for their three children.
M-A: When your husband told you that his parents would likely not accept you, how did you make peace with that?
As far as she was concerned, only a black man could appreciate her foxy my mom says she has shared the same sentiments on dating as my.
We are white, but my daughter has an attraction for the black males in her school. She and her father my ex-husband are extremely close, but he is very much against her dating black boys. My ex has threatened to do one of two things if she should want to date a black male: take me to court and assume custody of her, or exclude her from his life forever. I feel stuck! I can’t side with her dad at all because I feel if she is treated respectfully in a relationship, the color of the boy’s skin doesn’t bother me.
I also can’t allow my child to lie to her father about what she is doing with her life and during her time with me. What do I do? I doubt there is any court that would grant him custody of your daughter simply because you allowed her to socialize with or date black boys. It would take something rather grievous and destructive in your parenting to have a court consider remanding sole custody to your ex. You cannot prevent him, however, from punishing her by eliminating all contact with her.
Ask John: ‘Our daughter might marry a black man’
I grew up surrounded by love. Mike was the best beau a teen girl could have—tall, handsome, funny and happy to carry my books and hold my hand. He was great, so naturally I thought nothing of bringing him home for my parents to meet right after I turned

Racism is, inarguably, a foundational element of American society. Fortunately, many Americans have started to address their implicit and explicit prejudices—but if confronting our own racism is difficult, tackling the prejudices of our parents is damn near impossible. Whether it’s embarrassing comments we’d rather ignore or destructive reactions that alter our relationships forever, the negative ways in which our parents engage with race has an impact on our lives.
Acknowledging a parent’s racism can be awkward and painful, as well as a necessary first step to fostering constructive conversations. With that in mind, here are some stories from some forthcoming souls about the most racist thing their parents ever did. My parents always got stiff anytime they talked to a black person, and they’d quickly change the channel when a “black TV show” came on.
When I hit puberty, I found myself almost exclusively attracted to black guys. Meeting black guys in real life was too risky, so I opted for online dating, where my first relationship took place over picture messages and FaceTime calls. I always covered my tracks and kept my phone on hand, but I eventually slipped up: I walked into the kitchen, and my mom was staring down at my phone in horror at a photo of my black beau’s smiling face. She looked up at me and—swear to God—shed a literal tear before leaving the room.
Later that night, my dad told me I was no longer on the family phone plan.
32 years later, SF family shuns daughter for marrying a black man
NR Jr. So as a paid volunteer in the US Armed Forces who has traveled extensively across the world. Being military also adds to that, but no one knows that when you are wearing air max 90 and a Pokemon hoodie LOL.
An anonymous black woman told Reddit that she overheard her boyfriend’s parents who are white Canadian, making racist remarks about her.
A year-old man beat an elderly black man at random because he was upset about his mother dating an African American, police say. Albert Gallegos, 21, allegedly knocked the year-old man unconscious at a Houston, Texas bus stop on January 8 — and authorities believe the attack was racially motivated. An unnamed witness who was at the scene of the alleged assault told police she saw Gallegos throwing large rocks at the victim.
According to police, Gallegos has assaulted multiple people in the past because of their skin color, ABC 13 reported. Court documents say that he has a hatred towards black people because his mother is dating a black man — who Gallegos has threatened to kill. Gallegos has been charged with injury to the elderly, although authorities say he may be charged with a hate crime for the racial targeting nature of his attack.
He is also charged with aggravated assault in a separate case against his mother and her boyfriend, which he appeared in trial for on Thursday. Authorities said that Gallegos threatened his mother and her boyfriend with a large knife at their home and threatened to kill them. Follow Metro.
