You have touched many areas that today, so many are unwilling to talk about but yet much of what is causing heated debates and misunderstandings is the lack of conversations that should have already been had.

It seems there is a mix of two extremes in many cases. There is hate and there is misunderstanding and those two just don’t mix well. On top of this, the media can spin a story in one way or the other and cause a lot of confusion or more heat and it just makes the situation worse in most cases.

While reading your writing, it was a good explination of where many people have found themselves and have to make a choice of either just giving in and being unhappy or settling or does a person take a chance and go ahead with their life in a way that may not be so comfortable with everyone else’s expectations?

Both ways, no matter how a person lives or decides to move forward in their life, the things that seems to be missing more and more is respect and tolerance.

I very much enjoyed reading your article.

Your story is beautiful and inspiring! I am the child of the loveliest and most “in love” interracial couple in the world! My parents have been married for 34 years and have managed to achieve true happiness despite all the odds they faced. Only 10 years before they said their vows, it was actually illegal for blacks and whites to unite in holy matrimony in the state of NC. They went through hell together in the beginning of their relationship and marriage but their love has certainly stood the test of time and they have 4 very proud children to show for it! I hope the same for you and your husband…that you would always choose each other over every ugly circumstance life may throw in your direction. And in the words of my late maternal grandmother (when my mom told her she wanted to marry my dad), “If the world had more people like you who are color blind and who choose to love despite the differences in race, what a better and more peaceful place it would be.” Thank you!

It’s great to have this site to share. I have been married to my white Prince Charming for 11 years and he treats me like a queen. I have had plenty of black men to compare him to, including previous husbands and I tell people all the time I truly saved the best for last. I had dated white men before, so this was not outside my comfort zone, but it sure was for a lot of people around me including some in my family. But over time they have come to see that he is a good person who takes great care of me, so there have been attitude adjustments. The same can be said of his family as they have grown to accept me. I say to all AfAm women who are considering the move, jump on in, the water’s fine!!
