To be honest, I shouldn't have to write this post. But recently, I have read and listened to too much garbage on the Internet about interracial relationships. To the point where I literally had to remind myself that, yes, this is 2014. And that yes, being in an interracial relationship has been legal for the past 47 years.
I also know that there are couples who are not surrounded by love and support like MJ and I are, and I want each of them to know, we support you. I feel very blessed that the usually brief encounters of hate that MJ and I experienced together, are rare, and more recently, have been fewer and farther between. But the Internet loves to hate. And we have still experienced that hate in our real lives, from all angels. Why is there still hate in this world? Why does it matter if our skin is not the same?
MJ is the most amazing person I have ever met in my life. I am blessed to be his and call him mine. We aren't in this relationship to make a political statement or because we are "using" the other one for something. We are in this for love. We've been in it for love, and only love, for over four years.
"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today."
Mr. King, today and everyday, I thank you, and your followers, for paving a path for MJ and I to walk on with pride and hope for an even better tomorrow. But it hurts me to report, that we still haven't full-filled your dreams. And world, I have a dream that the beautiful children MJ and I will create one day, will not be judged by the color of the skin, but by the content of their character. Let's keep working, our job isn't finished until hate has vanished and everyone is truly equal.
