Can We Discuss Interracial Marriage Without Being Stereotypical?

2.     Why do you hate yourself?

I love this question! It’s so ridiculous that I can’t help but laugh.  This question is rooted in the idea that we choose mates who are our reflections and if I choose someone who doesn’t reflect my brown skin and tightly curled hair, then I obviously hate myself. I’m probably just trying to have some light skinned-ed (can’t forget that extra “ed”) babies. Race traitor!  My husband and I would never be confused for being relatives, but we do share common values and priorities.  We use different spf levels of sunblock. I’m fine with that. Oh and I don’t hate myself. Duh.
