WE are a mixed couple. They said our love would never last, but we just celebrated 14 years together. As a couple, we bridge the racial divide. We can’t change the rest of the world, but we have eliminated the racial divide in our own lives, and those around us. From what I’ve seen, a white man dating a black woman is pretty well accepted in the black community. Most white racially based fears are demonstrably false, my life shows things are much different in reality. Most white people do not realize how much black people can enrich their lives, and don’t realize all the good things they miss out on by shunning them.
