Interracial dating media

Although some also promised to boycott the store over the ad, Old Navy issued a response standing firm.
Plus, who Serena Williams, or any woman who you aren’t dating for that matter, has NOTHING to do with you.
Just sayin.’ For some of you, love will never be colorblind.

But social media continues to let us know that prejudice thinking individuals are still alive and well.
When news broke that Serena Williams was engaged to Reddit co-founder, Alexis Ohanian, a White man, as usual, folks got to talking.
I hate to say it, but every time a Black woman—or man for that matter—gets engaged to a member of another race or ethnicity, prejudice and racist folks alike come a stomping. But to outright judge a celebrity who you do not know…and frankly fellas, had a VERY small chance of snagging is just ridiculous.
I used to think that these types of sentiments were limited to White, Anglo Saxon individuals who grew up in minuscule towns, but as I mature, I’m learning that a “separate but equal” mentality thrives in America and beyond– regardless of your race—especially when it comes to love and marriage. Understand one thing: everyone has the power of CHOICE.
We all live our lives and love who we love on our own terms. Williams’ fiance as “the enemy” is just downright silly.
