I've never had a problem with interracial couples, but in my part of the country, particularly my town, it is not accepted. I can understand it more in the older folks, but I can't abide the bigotry in people of my generation and younger.
It isn't unusual for people around here to throw around the "N" word, or say ridiculous **** like, "You don't see dogs mating with cats" and things like that. They can't wrap their minds around the fact that we are all just people, and not so different from each other. Prejudice still is alive and well in rural Tennessee. I have met many people that I thought I could be friendly with, but my respect for them goes out the window when they show how intolerant they are. The anger in this town was palatable when Obama won the election.
My sister had a biracial child. She is a beautiful child, and my wish for her is that she doesn't have to face ridicule because her mother is white and her father is black.
Love is love, and we are all members of the human race. I can't understand why it matters to people, but around these parts it still does.
