Tamera Mowry Address Critics About Her Interracial Marriage and Her Child’s Skin Color

15 Feb

You remember “Sister, Sister” ?  Tamera and her  twin sister got me glued to the TV, when i was young.   

Now they are all grown up and are happily married and have babies. Tamera just had her first child and as happy as this time is in her life, Tamera’s interracial relationship and biracial child are the target of negative, unsolicited commentary from fans.

Tamera posted an open letter thanking all of her fans for their support and putting the haters right back in their seat;

“Tia and I have always known we have amazing fans, but reading all your messages and comments on this blog make it even clearer. When people say ignorant things about Aden’s race or my marriage with his daddy Adam, it’s easy for me to take it personally – even after all this time, my skin isn’t that thick!”

“Hearing your stories about your own beautiful, mixed race babies and the love you have for their fathers grounds me back to reality and reminds me of the truth. Skin color has nothing to do with love. How Aden looks or grows up to look like – whether he looks more “white” or more “black” – doesn’t matter to me. Why should it? He’s my precious baby boy and my only job is to be the best mommy I can be to him while showing him both sides of his heritage. All I want for him to believe is that love knows no boundaries.”

“The other day, Adam, Aden and I had a brush with a very scary situation. We were driving along on the highway, when all of a sudden the car in front of us crashed into the car in front of it. We watched in horror as the car flipped over and over and over again on the highway. It was terrifying… I still get chills now just thinking about it.”

“Life is too short to not do what you have set your heart out to do. Life is too short to hold any grudges. Life is short, and life is beautiful. To have the gift of life is a blessing. Many die daily and if you are alive right now, then you have been given that gift.”

I agree. Life is way too short to rely on fear and the opinion of others to shape your decisions. In a society where interracial couples are increasingly becoming more prevalent, you would think the shock factor of a black woman and white man has lost its appeal. Apparently, this remains a tumultuous issue that some people feel they need to address through negative commentary. It’s good to see Tamera rise above it.
