Sure, I've received my share of derogatory comments, things like: "white worshipping whore". But what people don't understand is I love my husband for so many reasons other than his skin tone. In fact, his skin color has nothing to do with why I chose to be with him.
Being an interracial couple is not something we’ve talked about much. But now that we’re an interracial family, with a mixed-race daughter, we feel the weight of closed mindedness or even just ignorance, more than ever. It makes me sad to know Olive will face obstacles simply because her mother is a minority & her father is not. My hope is that by the time she is old enough to have these conversations she won’t have to. But I know that’s wishful thinking.
& we’ll continue to educate our friends & family about how they can & should protect & advocate for our daughter in a world where the way she looks will mean so much even though it really means so little.
