If you are in love you can't help who with. So why is it any different with an interracial couple than it is with regular couples?
My boyfriend and I went to a band festival and about twelve different people asked us why we were together and if we had any issues. The didn't ask couples of the same race. The people who didn't say anything glared at us with disgust It makes no sense why the colour of your skin and who you're with should dictate the way people think of you.
It's 2000 and 9 people get with the program! Race isn't important love is. The only way to be happy is to follow your heart!
