pregnant with bi-racial child

So I come from a very judgemental racist family. I am the first female in the family who has exceeded in academics and has earned the oppertunity to go to college, in hopes of becoming a doctor. Although, this past year was my freshman year in college, where I met a african-american man who I dated for a period of time. I just came home and am 18 weeks pregnant with a bi-racial child. My family has no idea yet (luckily I still look good, with no signs of being pregnant) and I have no idea how to tell them. My brothers all know and are accepting of it and have left it to me to tell the rest of the family. I was going to wait until im 20 weeks and know the sex of the baby to tell everyone else. Unfortunately, me and the father are no longer together, and i'm concerned this fact alone will prove all their "theories" of black men are correct. I want them to be able to accept my little blessing, but have no idea on how to tell them to make it easier. Any suggestions are appreciated

By the way, my parents have always assumed i've dated black men, and have always noticed I have had way more black friends then white throughout my life, so this isn't a new thing.

Congradulations on your baby.
I am married to a Black Man and i have 2 children my father passed two years before i had my son but he was racist.. kinda my fathers family found out i was pregnant and they had no choice tolike it or not to I was having the baby anyway, You and your baby are goingto be beautiful. My family and my fathers family accept it because they love me. I am still who i am it doesnt matter the race of a child or who you are with as long as you love them and they respect you for who you are.
If your family love you they will see this is what you want and that you are happy.
A PERSON IS A PERSON NO MATTER WHAT RACE THEY ARE!!! ESPECIALLY IF IT IS YOUR BABY...
SONT FORGET TO POST PICS OF THE BABY AND YOU...
CONGRATS AGAIN

SINCERELY,
WENDY

Yes, Jessy passed away at six years ten months. She was in Kenya and I was here. After mourning her for 10 years, I let go and I was healed. Thanks for your sympathy Jules, much appreciated. If she had lived, she could have been 18 years old in August.

I am sure she is in good hands.

Always
Muthoni (Mson)


Oh that's just so awful, such a young age.

You're a brave lady and I bet Jessy is proud of her mummy.
