Be open and honest and remind them of how you all felt when your corazon was broken because closed-minded parents couldn't see past the color of your own skin.
Tell them that you will respect their decision, but hope they choose to support you.
Of those who do marry, which ethnic groups are most likely to be together?
Additionally, are there any differences between men and women, even of the same ethnicity? It's kind of hard to believe this today, but as recent as 1967, there was actually state laws that banned interracial marriage.
At the time, my country (the Philippines) have adapted a lot of telenovelas from Mexico and I only relied on Thalia’s Fernando Jose as an icon on the undying Maria Mercedes series.

Why they include the guacamole’s seed is another mystery. They always want to know what’s in the food they eat. Sometimes, I come to think, “do Mexican men ever lie to women?

Dear Pauline, I'm 15 and I really like this guy who is a Junior. I think they've conveniently forgotten the times I've been pushed aside because the parents of other boys thought I was too dark for their sons. I like this guy a lot, but I can't date him without permission. Sincerely, Quince & Crushing Dear Quince, *Insert Big Dramatic Sigh Right Here*.

But just like you, my parents warned me of potential family backlash for not only dating outside of our culture, but for going so far as to date a "black boy." Before anyone assumes I was raised by close-minded racists, let me clarify a bit.
