My black American boyfriend had no trouble charming my Brazilian family the first time they met for dinner.He brought flowers for my mom and told my father he respected his daughter. But I was a little nervous about whether they would get along throughout the rest of the night.But not everyone in interracial relationships has the same experience when they bring their sweetheart to family dinner table for the first time.
But then the golden moment happened – the moment in which they realized they shared the same belief on a particular issue. “Oh yeah, she has something to say about everything,” said my boyfriend.
They all burst out in laughter saying how accurate that statement is. Even though they bonded at my expense, it was great to see my boyfriend become a part of my family.
