Adam Housely speaks out on racial prejudices that he and his wife face everyday. After Tamera Mowry’s emotional battle on OWN’s Where Are They Now?, Housely shares his view in defense of their marriage. Here’s what he had to say to TVNewser:
The fact that in this day and age, we get attacked for our interracial relationship is beyond sad…it is pathetic. Yes I am white. Yes she is half black. Marrying a white man does not erase her color and marrying a woman who is half black does not mean I am blinded. The problem isn’t pigmentation…the problem is backwards, bigoted thoughts from people who should know better.
Interracial prejudice exists even in celebrity relationships. Wonder if more couples will speak out about this never-ending battle in the future… Kimye?
