Why is my girlfriend racist
I met my girlfriend online but have since met up with her in real life and had a relationship with her. When I first met her, she just seemed to be everything I was looking for. She is extremely attractive, extremely intelligent, witty and funny and to me she is the kindest, sweetest person ever but she is also just extremely racist.
She can not go one day without saying the n word or other racial slurs, she is extremely anti immigrant and said about asylum seekers that we should “just string a few up on the cliffs of Dover as a deterrent for the next lot,” she has also said that we need a “final solution” to Muslims and blacks in the UK then when I questioned her about it she said she was joking. She also sympathises with Mussolini and said that the Nazis had a “noble goal” but that she “doesn’t mind Jews.” And countless other comments like this that she makes every day.
She is far from being the typical violent, ignorant idiot you associate with having these views. She is extremely intelligent and sweet. My best guess was that she was just raised that way and I could educate her but after meeting her parents, I’ve found that they by no means agrees with her views. Although they do make some concessions for her and basically just allow her to speak her mind unchecked. None of her friends seem racist either.
It bothers me but probably not as much as it should. After dating her for a while and seeing how she is perfect for me in other respects, I’m probably more inclined to just ignore it and accept that everyone has their flaws.
Edit: she is 22 and I am 25
