Hi everyone!

New member here and hoping to find some help.

My parents divorced few years ago and almost no communication between themselves anymore.

About a year ago, my mom has found a new partner in her life which helped her moving on. When my dad learnt about the existence of this man, he reacted very negatively disapproving him mainly because of his skin color.

Two months ago, my sister also started a new relationship with an African boyfriend.
Since then, my father decided to stop talking to my sister too.

As per myself, I am still talking to him but my position is obviously not so simple. I am feeling pressured being in the middle of everyone
Is there any chance my dad can open up the dialogue with my sister again? Has anyone experienced anything similar?

Thanks.

Maybe try and persuade him to talk to your sister

Yes it's kind of tricky situation. I guess with some time he might change his mind though
