Ok, chill, the title's just an expression, but its very related to the subject.

Ladies and gentlemen of the pit, tomorrow I'm going to meet my girlfriend's parents. Now normally I dont have a problem with this, in fact I was the one that suggested it, but I'm thinking maybe I'm a bit over my head in this case.

Her mother's fine, her uncle, aunt and her cousins who are there visiting are fine...but her father's a fat racist redneck.

My girlfriend told me tonight that basically they're gonna ask me a million questions, be slightly nice to me, crack some jokes at me and then her father's gonna blow up once I leave....just because I'm hispanic.

Ladies and gentlemen there is nothing I hate more than knowing I'm not gonna be well liked at the place I'm going to. I absolutely CANNOT, stand to be around people who I know are fake and are going to have a different attitude once I'm gone, but I think I have some good things that may help ease the race issue. Now I have a job, I still live with my parents, I'm getting into college next fall and I know what I'm gonna study, and I'm clean in pretty much every way possible and her dad and I have a lot of things in common believe it or not.

So Pit, how do I cope with this?

I know I can't exactly change it, but how can I bare through it? She told me to just be myself but I'm still a little doubtful...I've met different girl's parents before but I've never been in a situation like this.

tl;dr: I NEED HELP TO COPE WITH GIRLFRIEND'S RACIST FATHER.

Tell them you are rich and that you are studying to become a doctor.

To really impress upon them your intelligence, give Pit resposes to all of their questions.

here's what you do
1. Take a fork, preferably metal.
2. Put some tomato sauce on it.
3. Let tomato sauce on fork dry.
4. Turn it in and call it: "The Spaghetti Massacre."

You could wear a deer's head, and have a beer in your hand when you walk in. He'll appreciate that i'm sure.


Also, just kiss ass...Exactly. Yeah, you nailed it, kudo's to you. Don't worry about it, ignorance will always be around. As long as the girl's not ignorant you should be fine.

Nothing much that you can do honestly. Tell your girlfriend that you aren't comfortable with racism, and that you shouldn't have to deal with it. Which you shouldn't. Try your best to warm over her father, but I wouldn't expect any dramatic changes of heart.

After you two have been dating for a while, it should be okay to come clean with the father about your feelings towards his racism.
I've decided that my signature is terrible. I'm open to suggestions.

He's a fat, racist redneck?
Uhh...
Rock up to his house in a Ford F250, with a bloodhound, a shotgun and a mullet, ask him what his favourite Skynyrd track is, and talk to him about having sex with relatives.

Or, just be as nice as you can, and try and prove to him that you're just as "good" as he is, if you get me.

I told her I wasn't comfortable, not to mention according to her if he really doesn't like me he'll tell me I have 10 seconds to leave the property or he'll bring his chainsaw out, there is a good chance though that her dad will chill out and let her out more since I'm willingly going out there to see her and meet her parents...this according to her though.

Aww this is adorable.

I say just go with it. In the end, at least you tried and didn't show your ass in the whole situation.

If her parents like you, you will be able to tell, and you'll be fine. If they don't, break up, because her dad is always going to be picking at her because of you, and it won't work out in the end, because he will have the power to convince her to stray away from you, because he has known her her whole life. Good luck friend .

dile que vaya y chinge a su madre!

....works everytime


in all seriousness just show him up. let him know that you are smart capable, and genuinely a good guy. show him that you are not a stereotypical vato loco. i'm sure he'll loosen up when he sees that you can hold an intelligent conversation without going like:

"nah! for realz homes?, got me straight trippin cuz" or **** like that

Just give the guy the benefit of the doubt.

Forget everything she told you about him and treat him as you would anyone else.

It's up to him what he says behind your back.

Just don't give him any reason to think he's right.

go wearing a kkk hood and show your hatred for other races as well......or just be your self and maybe make him realise that not all hispanics and latinos are drug dealing, Daddy Yankee looking stereotypes.

um.....he shoots you.


assuming that wasn't rhetorical of course.


but seriously, you answered your own question. all I have to say is that if you treat his daughter with the highest respect, you will earn a bit of respect yourself.
