A couple of weeks ago, actress Tamera Mowry tearfully confessed to Oprah Winfrey some of the harsh things that Internet users have been saying to her about her interracial marriage to Fox News correspondent Adam Housley. Just days later, Adam also spoke out about some of the disheartening comments.
“The fact that in this day and age, we get attacked for our interracial relationship is beyond sad,” the Fox News Anchor complained. “It is pathetic. Yes I am white. Yes she is half black. Marrying a white man does not erase her color and marrying a woman who is half black does not mean I am blinded. The problem isn’t pigmentation,” said Adam. “The problem is backwards, bigoted thoughts from people who should know better.”
During a recent appearance on “The Wendy Williams Show,” Tamera’s younger brother, Tahj Mowry,also discussed some of the backlash his sister has received and expressed that he has experienced his share of racism, too.
“Yeah, I deal with it too. If I post a picture with all White friends around me, [people will say] I don’t have any Black friends. Someone told me the other day, ‘Embrace your Black side.’ And I was like, ‘You don’t know me. What are you talking about?! I’ve never hung out with you in my life.’
“When people ask me what I am, I say I’m Black. So when people tell me to embrace my ‘Black side,’ it’s like what? I went to a historically black college. I just don’t understand it.”
Speaking of his sisters, he also reiterated that having sisters with children is the best form of birth control.
“Unclehood is great. I always say it’s the best form of birth control, because if they poop or pee I can hand them right back to Tia or Tamera. But I love being an uncle, I love it.”
