Family Fact or Fiction?

So growing up I always assumed no matter what no matter the time or problem they would be here for me. How come when you marry within a family they think you stay the same? Well my sister has got a better bond with my uncle now instead of me, it saddens me a lot. She married a man who despises me and has made very insensitive comments towards my children and husband. So honestly we have a feud going on now between me and these freaks called family.

How would they like it if I would call them white trash? How would the word honky make them feel? Would they enjoy it if I called them redneck inbreds? All the answers above would give a resounding It would hurt. Why would they go and make fun of Hispanic origins? Why would they have to make themselves a better person? My family is my pride now. Yes I was born Caucasian but twice now I have carried a person who is half Mexican inside of me. This makes me part Mexican now too. Why cant they see that? You are insulting the very heritage I am currently embracing and will embrace until death! Yes I know it is now 2007 and we should not have these problems but yes we do! Sadly it is usually the ones we love the most who is sharing this hatred!

I know some people will say " You knew this was a factor when you married big Ro, but I expect the same respect I dish out. Unfortunately, this is affecting my family but I never see them anyway so not too much. I would rather have my strong husband and my beautiful children then have a accepted to them man. I love my man with his dark curly hair, luscious dark skin and gorgeous brown eyes. I will fall into them forever and noone will make me change that. I am happy and that is all that matters.

I pray tonight, white, black, hispanic, asian or whatever you may be. That you embrace the one you love and hold them close. Do not let society tell you the rules. Only let your heart guide you. Then only will the world be complete!

You know isn't it funny how people around you change when you get married. Unfortunately there are a lot of ignorant people in the world when it comes to race, all you can do is love your children as much as possible and teach them to be tolerant of others no matter what the difference. I hope things get better for you.

I agree with Mrs.Jones that the most important thing you can do is teach your children love and acceptance of all people regardless of race.

I know how you feel. I've been with Jose for 6 years now. People still haven't gotten over the fact that he's Mexican. I'll tell you what, I'm so darned sick of Mexican jokes.

:) You sound like an awesome person. Hold your head high.
