My relationship is not a stereotype.

Lauren Smith,
New Orleans, LA.

Just because I am white and my (soon to be husband) is black does not mean that our relationship is a stereotype or a fetish, nor is it to blame for whatever you may want to blame it on. Our relationship is strong, beautiful, and full of love for each other, not because of each other’s skin color, but because we are best friends first, care deeply for each other, because we share the same values and aspirations in life and are 100% compatible with each other, and no one makes me laugh like he does. Just like any other strong relationship. Yes, staring is impolite. No, I’m not with him “because he’s black.”
