Okay...so what now....shall we dance? j/k

Yeah, I just finished posting something that the main people that have such a big probem with IRR are people that are either in unhappy relationships or non-existent relationships themselves. It's something to think about when factoring in just how much their apparent disdain actually matters. Generally normal individuals in happy, loving relationships are too wrapped up in their own lives to pout about what makes someone else happy.

I don't think that is it nitabunni, I have seen a lot of people in happy relationship make comments about interracial couples - it is purely racism, sad racism still exists today, but it does.

 My husband and I get that sometimes. I'm Italian, Native American, and Mexican so of course I'm much darker than he is and we always get asked what we are doing together or somebody will ask him why he is with a Mexican........ :( I just tell them to get lost, get a life and get over it.

some people are just douchebags. they can't accept anything they they see as 'different'. they have a hard time remembering that we are all human, and that ALL humans look, act, believe, talk, etc etc. etc.   DIFFERENTLY.

i know how you feel...when my fiance and i first started dating everyone was staring. we still get the occasional ppl who stare at us now and we've been together for 7 years. i'm italian and he's puerto rican and because he is of caramel color and i am white we shouldn't be together??? i think not. it doesn't matter what color you are as long as you are loved and you love back   <3
