Black with dreads and white husband

My blackness and black cultural authenticity is never questioned, until people discover I have a white husband. As if his race diminishes mine and the life experience I’ve had in the years prior to meeting him. In fact, I’d argue being a black woman married to a white man, a union not fully supported by either race as normal/acceptable has made me even more secure in my blackness.
