Hi, I’m Charnissa. I’m African American and he is White, Portuguese and Italian. He makes my heart smile and I wouldn’t want anyone else in this world besides him. (:
It’s been over 24 hours already. I am in deep need of help. My sister never did something like this before, and I am extremely concerned. If anyone has seen her, PLEASE let me know.
Her family is waiting to hear if she is safe.
I’m still reconciling today’s language and its advancements. For example, in my era, a ‘toilet’ was a ‘vanity cabinet’, ‘Intercourse’ meant simply ‘social conversation’, ‘awful’ meant ‘awe-inspiring’
This is Qudus, my Nigerian boyfriend. We have been dating for almost 9 months. I met him two days before classes started of my freshman year in college. As a bi-racial individual(I am half Dutch and half Mexican) I have fallen victim to racism myself. Q and I have been under the scrutiny of many people and their negative comments, but we don’t care. Love is blind, and I wish others could realize that. I have been fortunate enough to have two parents that understand my love for him despite his skin tone. It makes me really happy to see these beautifully colored couples on this page. It makes my day :)
My Italian honey, and I am Black, white and Puerto Rican. We complete each other in every way, I couldn’t imagine being with anyone else. I love our interracial relationship, and I love encouraging anyone who has a tough time by society by being in one. Swirl on :)

Remember when Disney was all like ‘fuck how races work and homogeneous casts and couples’?
Black and white couple produce fillipino-american child. White dude is the valet. White step mother, one white step sister, one black step sister. Just a jumble, and it ought to happen again.
First multi-racial cast performing Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella.
Whitney Houston was producing Rodger and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella” and was to star in it until she decided that Brandy Norwood would make a better Cinderella. Brandy would not do it unless her idol Whitney took the Fairy Godmother role.
Brandy Norwood became the first African-American to play Cinderella. This version broke viewer-ship records when it debuted, and it holds the record for the bestselling video for a made for TV movie.
So fuck any noise where people say audiences don’t want to see a mixed race couple, or more people of color. This was a success from television. I still remember Brandy singing Impossible.
That ought to happen again. Mixed race live action cast where the relationships don’t made genetic or racial sense.
