    Ok so I have a really overprotective mum who loves me alot which I appreciate but its stopping me from growing up, she said herself she doesn't want me to grow up. at uni I am commuting and I cant stay to explore the city because she always wants me home. I am also from a family of strict asians who are very strongly against interracial marriage as they are proud of their culture and I have many pakistani friends at my uni and my mum doesn't like that (as she doesn't like them in general) so when they ask me to hang around the city I have to make an excuse like I get where my mums coming from about trusting people I know the world is messed up and you cant trust anyone why can't my mum see that I can take my decisions but also I know to be careful too as I am not stupid to do dumb things as I am older and wiser. what do I do?

    I also like this blonde white chick but I know my parents will never accept her so I have no choice but to get married to an asian person

    Your parents don't have to 'accept' her. If you're legally an adult you can be in a relationship with whoever you like - it's your relationship, not your family's. Plus you can tell your family you're going out with friends, they can't physically stop you and you need to live your life.
