Rejected because love is colorblind.

Paula Morris,
Long Beach, CA.

A white girl growing up in Orange County, CA, where I was that anything and anyone “different” was “bad”, I have found love with two wonderful men in my life: the first one (who died) was African American, and the second one is African. The happiness both have brought me is too threatening for my family; my brother can barely stand to look at me.
