It probably has nothing to do with the guy being black. Depending on the age of consent in your area, he might not be allowed by law to date you. The age of consent where I live is supposed to be 18, even though there are rumors that it has been reduced to 16.
If you are under the age of consent, and your boyfriend is over the age of consent (especially if you are having sex with each other), your dad has every right to press charges. If your boyfriend was white, the result would be the same.
If I had a daughter who is under 18, I would not allow her to date someone who is over 18 (not until after she turned 18). I'm not married and don't have any kids yet. But if I had an underage daughter, and she was secretly dating/having sex with someone who is over the legal age, I would press charges. Color don't matter. I happen to be a conservative white male, but I am not a racist. I'm perfectly fine with someone dating someone who is a different skin color. As long as it's legal.
