It isn't just the parents that you have to warm everyone up to, it's the entire squad.
Uncle Jim, Aunt Grace, Cousin Ashley-- they've got to get on board too. Don't worry, the anxiety dies down once you get the hang of how things work.

Interracial personals are a fast-growing niche among internet dating sites.
An online survey conducted in October 2001 found that 49% of students said they had dated someone of a different race. According to one news report, there were 117,000 black wife-white husband couples in the United States in 2006, an increase from 95,000 such couples in 2000. Online interracial dating services assist such people by making it easier for them to find other people interested in interracial relationships.
The use of a site with interracial personals, as opposed to a general internet dating site, can save a person considerable time and effort.
A recent survey found that most users of social network services thought these sites were mildly offensive, although some felt that they are representative of the diversity of the human race and found nothing objectionable about it.
Surveys indicate that many people are interested in dating or marrying people of other races. Supreme Court overturned laws against mixed marriages, there were only 26,000 black wife-white husband couples.
