Recently I watched Oprah’s interview with the beautiful Tamera Mowry-Housley where she spoke openly to her critics about her interracial marriage. I commend her for speaking up about the criticism of interracial couples because it does exist. I too am in an interracial marriage and often experience a lot of hateful comments via YouTube (Vmarie401).
Like Tamera, I’ve had critics say hurtful things such as, “You’re a sell out whore to you’re race” or “ You’re not a true black women because you’ve disrespected your race by not marrying your black people”. I can recall other comments: “You’re a beautiful black woman, why are you settling for an Asian of all men? “ or “ No matter how much you love him, he will always think you are a n*****”. “They have no respect for the struggles and accomplishments of black people in America. The best thing you can do for yourself is date and marry a handsome dark skinned man and produce beautiful, strong, dark skinned children”.
There have been many hurtful comments posted that I just had to delete and then block these individuals from my channel.
I believe LOVE sees no color and it’s time for people to take the labels off of this notion. Love is Love. No more going around separating oneself by highlighting your race or making oneself feel superior by saying “Black Love is Beautiful or White love is Beautiful”, all Love is Beautiful!!. Stop belittling others for finding love outside of their race because love is more than the color of ones skin.
I’ve been blessed to have an amazing husband of 7 years who loves me unconditionally. We have a beautiful 1-year-old son that embodies the love we share. We want to instill in our child the ideal of loving others period, not love them only if…
I’ve spoken to mothers who will bluntly say “My son or daughter can marry a Hispanic or African American just not a Caucasian”. Or other moms who’ve said “This is how I was raised so my child will only date inside our own race”. For me, this is a heart-wrenching reality, to know that we are in the 21st century and this type of mentality still exists. It’s time to be apart of the change in the way our society views interracial relationships.
Start off by loving others as yourself – this will truly alter the way you perceive people and circumstances. Secondly, when negativity is spoken, speak up against it. This creates an opportunity to change the way others view this issue. Finally, celebrate diversity in all forms. Embracing the similarities and differences of individuals will help you to grow in love.
