I'm a black woman married to a white man. I feel that he's racist and it makes me act racist too. What to do?
I've been married to my husband Alex for 5 years. I love him so much, I really do. We have a two year old son together. He's a white man who grew up in a racist, hick town in Texas and I'm a black woman who grew up in the rough, urban streets of Harlem. But we are college educated, we have jobs and we live in a NJ suburban area. Alex is a wonderful man but our backgrounds clash at times. I can't even vent to him about the struggles in my family such as my brother being in jail, my sister being on drugs...the list goes on. His answer is always "black people bring it on themselves". In my frustration, I call him a cracker and a white piece of trash every time we argue. But yesterday, it got worse. Alex and I were riding in a car with my coworker/friend Nick and his wife Emma. Nick and Emma are both white by the way. I always felt that Nick could do so much better than Emma because Emma comes off as a stuck up, self-centered HOE. Plus, I can just sense that my husband and Emma want each other because they act too flirty. Anyway, the four of us were in the car coming back from Maryland. Nick was driving with Emma in the passengers seat. Alex and I were in the back. Alex and I had a huge argument because he refused to answer my question if he was interested in going back to white women or not. I called him a cracker and I told him that my BLACK ex boyfriend was more of a man than he will ever be(in and out of the bedroom). I also told him that I'm having sex with other men and they're all black(I lied but I said it just to piss him off). I proceeded to call him his RACIST mother right in front of him and call her every b*tch and whore in the book. But Alex grabbed my cell phone and then I lost control and punched Alex in the face. We had a huge physical fight in the car. My nose was bleeding and Alex had scratches all over his face, neck and chest plus I blacked his eye and ripped his shirt. Nick and Emma had to pull over in the middle of the highway just to break us up. They were PISSED. Now, it's been over 24 hours since Alex and I talked. I'm crying because I love him. I'm expecting Alex to pick our son up from his godfather's house tonight, so I'll see him then. I know I was wrong but did I come off as racist or is he racist? Who was wrong and what should I do? If I didn't love this man so much I wouldn't even need advice.
