Racism is unfortunately alive and well -- and there is not a person of color (mixed or not, and even white) who has not experienced some form of it in his or her life. There is always a fear that the other person will heavily judge you based on your race and not on your character.When you're biracial, your background is the subject of many conversations -- far more so than mentioning your Italian grandmother or Passover traditions.It's the basic gist of most love stories, Disney movies, and classic literature regardless of how much melanin you've got in your skin.
Treat each other well — and each other’s families well — and set an example of grace as family and friends slowly warm up to you and your partner.

Sometimes I see surprise -- the holy-shit-are-you-kidding-me look. In all fairness, it's pretty damn hard to relate to the realities of anyone who's got a different set of life experiences than you -- and being biracial can be a tough reality to embrace because we so often don't quite fit in anywhere.
I'm not white enough for white privilege, not black enough for black heritage.
