She must not be a native then because that definitely is not the Minnesota nice that is characteristic of the area.

Having lived in minnesota I can from experience say that it's not always the case.. "Minnesota Nice" is really just another saying. Only difference is that people there aren't as vocal about it.

I dunno, I can see how that fact might have remained ridden. I mean, it's not as if he ever asked her "do you hate black people" or anything

I'm not going to YDI, but this is a good argument to not rush into marriage before you PROPERLY know someone. What sort of relationship must you have that you didn't know your wife was racist??


I think racism and discrimination in general is really just stupid. I just don't see why you would hate some people because they're skin is darker/lighter than yours. You're still equal. No race is better than another.

13- Did you have racist parents or grandparents? That sort of thing happens often. Kids follow what they see (or hear), especially when they are very young!

I've had friends of many races even from a young age. Thank God my grandparents shut their mouths around me when I was young!

The color of someone's skin doesn't make any of us less human. Shame on OP's wife for thinking otherwise.

11, 42, and 47- Why shouldn't OP just try to help his wife? Isn't that what you do when you love someone?
I mean, really. It's not reasonable. OP should help his wife. Maybe he could show her statistics on how skin color doesn't affect someone's personality. Or maybe he could introduce her to a black friend of his to show her that they are just as human and kind as anyone else.
Why would anyone break off a marriage for something that can easily be worked through?

53, I really haven't thought about that. Gosh, I hate when I jump to conclusions so early. Then again, it's 1AM here and very tired. Please excuse my last comment, everyone.
