I just see her as a woman

A beautiful Black woman White man interracial couple

“I’m a White guy. I’m married to a Black woman. We’ve been married almost 10 years. For me, race isn’t important. I don’t see my wife as a Black woman; I just see her as a woman – my woman. I really don’t think about it and neither does she. It doesn’t occur to us that we’re still outside the mainstream or not a “normal” couple. We really don’t think about being an interracial couple until someone brings it to our attention, then I look at her and think “oh yeah, that’s right; you’re Black!” LOL. The color of our skin seems to be way more important to other people than it is to us. I think way too many people focus on skin color. If we truly were all equal and we were all unprejudiced, then this wouldn’t even be a topic for discussion in this day and age. But, the fact that we’re still debating this just shows that people have a long way to go in living with and loving their fellow man.”
