For the most part, parents of mixed couples do not accept inter-racial and inter-religious relationships, or are at least hesitant about the idea at first. At dinner, he ignored Jim completely, speaking only in Chinese to my aunt (who, incidentally, was surprised to discover he could even speak Chinese)” (Miller 80).
‘He had this ridiculous mental picture of his baby girl out working in a field for a bunch of white folks’” (132).
Again, similarly to the Asian-Caucasian couple, their father showed disapproval of their relationship based on past experience or teachings.
Without their parents support, a marriage between Jim and Ella will be very difficult.
