Very nice!!! It shows that true friendship spans a lifetime and we never forget those that are true!

May I say, that is a great relationship. Keep it going because it is love from the depths of your lives. Stay close always. She is your best friend and confidant.

thats terrible i knew somebody who was in a mixed race relationship not too long ago and got lots of ****

That is love, grab ur chance at true happiness, I hope u get together

I wish you'd told us more. Was it a BM/WW interracial relationship?

Beautiful. I am not sorry for anything that happened to you before you found out and realized, that you love her. Enjoy and stay friends with her in all aspects.

Awww. That's cute. I wish you guys the best of luck (:

What a beautiful and short story . thank you for sharing!

:) beautiful. plain and simple.

The older one is - the more impact interracial relations have. Survivors of the 50 and 60's had to endure the eroding of confidences that could have direct impacts in loving relationships. I learned so much in my partnership. The love of my life was a brown skinned senior and we had 14 beautiful years together... He had to wait in the "coloured" rooms at the train station when he visited America as a young man. In Jamaica he was whole, and when he came to Canada he had to struggle. He grew up when mothers wanted their sons to partner with light skinned women so their children would be fair, daughters were sent away to boarding school and encouraged to marry into the fair skinned society. It was that same English attitude that invaded North America and turned on the first peoples who helped them survive...I sensed the reverse racism when - as a white woman, we traveled into the US and in Jamaica. We were refused accommodation because we were an interracial couple and possibly ba<x>sed on age prejudice as well...In Jamaica he was asked if he "controlled dem two white woman?" (3 of us traveled for a month in his homeland)Plus the young school girls sticking their tongues out at the white person walking with the brown skinned man in Kingston - Negril is a little different because of Tourism which comes with it's own predicaments....I am so saddened by the bigotry people have had to endure. He was affected by the black and white divide everyday of his life and covered it by sarcastic humour and we loved him for that. I am confident that with the age of "reason" giving way to the age of enlightenment we will know we are one. What we desire for ourselves - we wish for all.

My high school ofriend and I are still very close too...although we are both married and have kids..and as for interracial relationships.. my 14 yo son is in one now..in my household we are taught there is no skin color! If more people thought this way the world itself would be a much better place!!
