How can I convince my dad to let me date a mixed boy?

My dad won't share his side, because he doesn't feel that he needs to justify what he does with his daughter. Anyways, I have been talking to a mixed boy on and off since the middle of last school year. I am caucasian, and I'm in the tenth grade. My father told me that if I ever brought him home or considered myself to be "dating" him, I would not live under his roof, implying that he will kick his 16 year old daughter out of the house if I were to date someone with slightly darker skin than my own. I get a 4.167 gpa and am very involved at school, my father has no reason not to trust my judgment. This boy is a varsity football player and runs varsity track, gets perfect grades, and treats me like a princess. I've had to lie to him and make up reasons as to why we can't be together, all because I don't know how he'd react if he knew that my father is, although he won't admit it, a racist. He was raised by his white mother and has the utmost respect for women. Please give my advice that could lead to me getting his blessing (I've tried all that I can think of..we fight about it on a daily basis, with one occasion ending with me running to my room after being called a ni**er lover)....or give me advice as to what I should do. I don't want to go behind my father's back if I don't have to, but I really do like this boy, a lot. My mom doesn't feel strongly one way or the other, but doesn't want to turn this into an argument between her and my dad. :( It's shallow and narrow-minded behavior, and I know that.
