A long time ago, people who loved each other could not get married. They were harassed, bullied, threatened, their families were ashamed of them. They had in many cases to hide their love.

And then the supreme court ruled gay marriage legal. Love won.

And then by law and court battle miscegenation laws were slowly removed. Love won
Today the children of these families grow up to be told how their birth won’t end racism. We know, it was never the point. we’re told that our family members oppress each other because of the color of their skin (Of course sometimes, and yet the opposite is also true).
Our parents are even encouraged to divorce (how painful).
We are told by white supremacists our blood isn’t pure.

And told by the “woke” that we do not belong to the race of our parents.
Caught in the middle of racism on every side, used as pawns by activists who know nothing about us, and care nothing about us. And who speaks out for us? @Tim Pool ? He is one of us. Who else? Not the “Woke” they seem to hate us as much as the KKK.
You do not know us by our skin color, by our speech, by our clothes. Yet we exist. We are not a monolith. And our families are not pawns for your racist hate games. Our heritage is not yours to decide. Who will stand up and say no to interracial racism? No matter where.
These kinds of things are said far too often. I will not be silent anymore.
