You just have to learn to ignore it. Sit them down, explain to them that you're happy, that this is the person you are choosing to be with, and that if they can't get past their ignorance, that is not your fault. I'm in an interracial relationship, and I've been with my boyfriend for going on 4 years, when we first started dating, my asshole dad tried to give me a ton of shit for it. My asshole dad is now out of the picture, having moved out and is out of mine and my mom's lives, so I no longer have problems, but he wasn't the only one. I got shit from strangers, I got passive aggressive comments from relatives, they're just jealous because they don't know how to love someone based on what's inside of them, not the color of their fucking skin.
In the end, your life is about what makes you happy, and WHO makes you happy, and if your family can't learn to accept that, then fuck em'. They will come around eventually, when they see that you are not going to date who they want you to date simply because they are the same race. This shit will always be baffling to me. Good luck to you!
