so lately i've been talking to this boy and he was born in the UK but his parents weren't. My family are so against immigrants as they believe they come over to take all our benefits, thats how narrow minded they are. They are very racist also...im the only one who accepts people regardless of their skin colour/race/relgion. I just dont know what to do because if things do progress with me and this boy, im scared to take him home to meet my family because of what they might think or say

The best way is to tell your parents how you feel. It seems like the older generation are closed minded.

I'd say you're a very open-minded person. My family aren't against immigration however, I'm constantly around people who are though I find their view fairly ridiculous. It's the history of immigration which people lack

Your life, your love, your decisions.

in this context , anyone who has beefs with that many things as 1 -race, 2-nationality, 3-religion are:

1- Racist (hate for skin colour)
2- Xenophobic (hate for nationality/foreigners)
3-Bigots/Zealots/Extremists (hate for religions other than their own)

No point seeking approval, if you care for the boy why would you even dream of subjecting him to their toxic presence?

Just tell them good things about immigrants from time to time.

Such as the fact that London has a 44% immigrant population and contributes to 22% of all of UK's GDP.
