For one reason or another, people have accused Tamera Mowry-Housley’s husband, Adam, of being racist. Personally, I’ve never seen any evidence of Housley’s racism, though I have friends and associates who swear that he’s expressed ideologies that are sympathetic to racist people. For instance, when he shared this photo of his family and talked about craziness on “all sides…”

…there were those who took that to mean he could see the arguments or the validity in the arguments from people on the right. It harkened to words President Trump used in his assessment of the Charlottesville riots. “Some very fine people on both sides.”

To me, it seemed like a stretch.

But with Housley’s former connection to Fox News and, honestly, his Whiteness, folks jumped to their own conclusions, including the idea that Housley voted for Trump in the most recent presidential election, a fact which he has denied.

Today, on “The Real,” Tamera responded to the claims. During a discussion about Julie Chen and her decision to stand by her man Les Moonves during the numerous allegations of sexual assault, Mowry mentioned the fact that if you believe something about your husband’s character, you should be able to tell people that and stand by it. Then she used her own life as an example.

“There are some people who think that my husband is racist because he worked for a certain channel. Ima look in that camera right there and let everybody know, my husband is not a racist.”

Alright, sis.

I know there are people who still have their eyes peeled.
