check out the blog, here.
Personally, I have never been asked the following questions, but it has come to my attention that many people desire to know the inside truth about Interracial Relationships. Here it is folks! The answers you have been waiting for! (Make sure you read the ENTIRE blog for the common theme).
10. QUESTION: “Wow! You must really like purple!!! Soooo cooool…Have you always dated purples?”
ANSWER: Uh, no. Wait…Hold on? He’s purple?? It never crossed my mind. I mean seriously….he’s purple????
BOTTOM LINE: Just because a person dates or marries outside of their race DOES NOT mean they are only attracted to that particular race. Sometimes you just happen to meet someone you connect with who happens to be….well purple. Do not be fooled. There are PLENTY of people who are racist within an interracial relationship. Never assume that a person loves every purple person, just because they have a purple partner.
***( IS THERE REALLY PURPLE IN THIS BLOG??).
9. QUESTION: “It must be strange hanging out in public with a purple?”
ANSWER: Really?? I never noticed he was purple…until you mentioned it. Is that strange????
****(I MUST BE MISSING SOMETHING….APPARENTLY…PURPLE???)
8. QUESTION: “Aren’t people really mean to you guys?” PURPLE??
ANSWER: People can be cruel….but not to me. Maybe when I was in school. I demand respect now….I do not care if people like me, as long as they respect me. If you do not like purple…than go hang out with a blue.
****(STOP LYING FOLKS….THERE IS NO PURPLE IN THIS!!!! RIGHT??)
7. QUESTION: ” How do your neighbors treat you?”
ANSWER: My neighbors are annoying…always too friendly….I usually have to run because I do not enjoy socializing.
****(I DID NOT REALIZE MY NEIGHBORS WERE THINKING ABOUT PURPLE….TOTALLY CONFUSED NOW….WHO OR WHAT IS PURPLE??)
6. QUESTION: “Your children are going to have such a hard time. Aren’t they?”
ANSWER: Did you have a hard time in school? Kids in general can be cruel. There are plenty of children that come from non purple and red families that are bullied much worse. Most of the time bullying has nothing to do with purple/red….it is all the luck of the draw.
****(I STILL DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT….CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME WHERE THEY SEE PURPLE ON MY BLOG??)
5. QUESTION: “Like, if a purple and a red have children, which box would they have to check? Isn’t that confusing?????
ANSWER: Ummm…..wait a minute let me think…..RED!!!!!!!!! ONE DROP RULE…..Look it up. It does not have to make sense….just accept it.
****( OHHHH….I GET IT! PURPLE IS A NEW TELEVISION STATION!!! OR THAT HIT MOVIE…THE COLOR PURPLE????)
4. QUESTION: What is it like being in a relationship with a purple?
ANSWER: What???? I am in a relationship with someone purple?
****(I MUST BE COLORBLIND????)
3. QUESTION: “Where did you meet ……??? Purple?”
ANSWER: Purple has a name….and I do not believe his name is Purple…..Respect it….
****(OK FOLKS…I AM MUST OFFICIALLY BE GOING BLIND!!! WILL SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME WHERE IS THE PURPLE!!!!!!!!!?????)
2. QUESTION: “How did your families react to this Purple Red thing?”
ANSWER: My side of the family did not really care but I never cared if they did. The purple side….well….let’s just put it this way….I still never cared. I chose who I wanted in this world. It was their job to respect my decisions. If not….OH WELL….YOU DO NOT HAVE TO LIKE ME, BUT I DEMAND RESPECT…..NOT AN OPTION….SINCE I GIVE RESPECT I SHOULD GET IT BACK. PERIOD. (If you allow your family to control your decisions, the control will not stop there. There is no reason for people to believe that everyone should like each other within a family….it is impossible. Just respect one another. If they love you, they will get over it, if not…well, honestly….with family like that, there will always be threats/control for your ENTIRE life).
****( OKAY! SOMEONE HAS GOT TO TELL ME WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT!!! I MUST BE MISSING SOMETHING…MAYBE MY COMPUTER SCREEN IS PLAYING TRICKS ON ME BECAUSE I DO NOT SEE ANY PURPLE IN THIS BLOG!!!!!! ALL I SEE IS WRITING…..BUT PURPLE?????)
1. QUESTION: What is it like being in a relationship with a purple? Do racial slurs happen?? OMG!!!
ANSWER: Definitely!!!! We crack jokes all the time about purple, red and blue….Why???
BECAUSE I FORGOT HE WAS PURPLE, AND FOR SOME REASON HE CAN NEVER REMEMBER THAT I AM RED…..
“Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart (1 Samuel 16:7).”
Bloggers Note: Did you notice the common PURPLE THEME? IF THE ONLY THING THAT STOOD OUT TO YOU WAS THE PURPLE IN THIS BLOG…THEN MAYBE YOU NEED TO CHANGE THE WAY YOU VIEW THE WORLD. AT THE END OF THE DAY, PURPLE WILL ALWAYS APPEAR PURPLE. AND IF I CHANGED THESE WORDS FROM PURPLE TO RED, I GUARANTEE YOU, IT WILL STILL MEAN THE SAME THING. IT WILL JUST BE ANOTHER COLOR…..RIGHT?
