Oprah did a where are they now segment on Tia and Tamera and something Tamera said blew me away!
"Back in the day, you cost $300 dollars,
but Now you're giving it to him for Free."
Why should it matter who you date, as long as you’re happy and healthy. Racism is the biggest form of abuse, that goes unnoticed or either people take real notice to it when it’s extremely out of control and someone has died, or it hits celebrity status. Tons of celebrities date outside of their race, but not many ever tell the tale of what goes on when people see them out together off screen.
The younger generation loves to mix and mingle, so most don’t have a problem with race or interracial dating, but there is that small percentage that were brainwashed at a young age and actually believe the total opposite. Could people who grew up in and around racism, who are not racist themselves, actually be afraid of the backlash they will receive from people they know who are racist?
I thought love is love and that you can’t pick and choose who your heart will fall in love with. Is it wrong to want a world filled with less hate and more love?
The more people stand for racism, the more superiority is felt.
last time I checked, hate was still a sin and that’s a crime to the most high.
Before you practice being a racist, be sure you know exactly where you come from.
Whether you’re a celebrity or NOT - No one Woman should ever hear these words. “White man’s whore” or "Back in the day, you cost $300 dollars, but Now you're giving it to him for Free."
Tamera and Tia are bi-racial and someone saying this proves that ignorance is truly bliss. No matter her ethnicity, the comments are still disrespectful and hurtful. Everyone should have the right to date, love and marry who they choose – it’s their own business.
The world is colorful for a reason, who are we to judge it?
If only those with racist hearts could trade their hearts for blinded eyes, they will be able to see things more clearly?
Whether people like it or not, this is the
family of today and also, tomorrow...
Get Over It!
Yes, racism is still alive and well and as much as many try to claim it's not, let’s be real, it is.
It's not about being in state of denial, because racism is so blatantly out there and disrespectful for the world to see, making it hard to be denied.
Those who claim to not see it are either not affected by it or are clearly afraid to face the truth.
Why is racism allowed in this day and age?
This is a priceless question that deserves a sincere answer and not just another pacifier to hush the crying baby.
Times have changed, yes I agree, but what I disagree with is how much has changed; what is recognized as change and how so much of the struggle still remains.
Racism is not hereditary, it’s learned. It’s very selfish to corrupt the minds of the innocent in order not to have to cower
solely behind the shadows of hate.
People of color can no longer be hosed for the color of their skin, but shot and killed innocently in the name of self-defense.
People of color no longer have to sit in the colored’s only section to eat, but have to waiting timely lengths to be served in restaurants, although they arrived before many served before them.
People of color can now find jobs, but are turned down for listing their ethnicity on the application or for simply having a different name, although on the application it also states you can’t be discriminated against.
How much longer can society continue to sweep racism under the rug?
