Swirling Gone Wrong... Hating on Tamera Mowry
Actress Tamera Mowry made us all fall in love with her back in the 90's with her hit sitcom Sister, Sister focusing her relationship with her twin sister Tia Mowry. In a recent interview with Oprah Winfrey Tamera shared tearfully all the back lash she has endured for marrying Fox News correspondent Adam Housley in 2011.
The Backlash .... What Happened? According to social media comment Tamera repeated these hurtful comments. "White man's whore." " Back in the day, you cost $300, now you are giving it away for free."
Tamera's Response: "Because when my husband and I are so openly -- and we're fine with showing -- is love. Love. But people choose to look past love and spew hate. That's what hurts me, because I've never experienced so much hate ever in my life, ever."
"My mom is a beautiful black woman and my dad is an amazing white man." Tamera mentioned a comment that really hurt her feelings when some people have argued she is less of a Black woman because she married a white man. "They say, 'Oh, Tia's a true black woman because she married a black man,'" Tamera says. "Oh – I'm less of a black person because I married white?"
"I love my husband so much, I love our family, I love our dynamic. I'm proud to be in the relationship that I am because it's based on love," Tamera says. "Pure love."
Adam Housley's Response: Even if you don’t look for it, it’s there and it shows up.” He said it is now easier than ever for random people to connect to famous people, and all people can do is just “call it out” strongly and publicly. Housley found it remarkable how mixed-race couples are still a sore and controversial subject, telling people to “get over it” if they still have a problem with this growing social trend.
Toni's Thoughts: I feel bad for Tamera these remarks are rather harsh and she does not deserve any of this. I'm glad that she has found happiness with her husband and that cute son. They are really beautiful family and I wish them nothing but the best. Although I will I do not believe we live in a post racial society color is a factor everywhere you go. I have dated white men before although I'm not totally opposed to interracial marriage or and dating, I'm not totally supportive of it depending on the people involved I say this because I have come across African Americans that hate themselves and seek a White person, Hispanic, etc. simply because they do not want their children to have darker skin, coarse hair, and other distinctive features of their African American heritage. But I will say I believe everyone deserves to find happiness in a man or woman that brings joy to your life just makes sure you are in the relationship for the right reasons. Beyonce' said it best in a Vogue magazine interview " Never read the comment section its the quickest way to get your feelings hurt." I know that is easier said than done but for your sanity do not read every comment on social media.
