Unthinkable (I'm Ready)

So, I was watching Alicia Keys' new video for her track, "Unthinkable (I'm Ready)" and I must say, it's pure genius. The concept of interracial dating is still a topic people are struggling with. The fact that she shows that it's still an issue in the video further solidifies that. Why is it that people still cannot accept interracial dating. I am not going to be a liar and say sometimes, I don't like seeing Caucasian women with African-American men because some women try to pretend to be "black enough" so African-American women will accept them. However, I think everyone should be able to love who they want, no matter what race, ethnicity, or gender. Love is limitless, and I wish everyone could view it the same. However, let me just say that if you love someone of a different race than yours, do not feel obligated to try to become that race. As long as you stay true to yourself, it shouldn't matter if your boyfriend is African-American and wears Jordans while you are Hispanic and listen to Alejandro Fernandez. As long as you accept each other for who you are, it's really true love.

Now, have I ever dated outside of my race? Once, and it didn't work out. But he was a liar, cheater, and disrespectful towards women, and I'm not one to just take someone's crap. But I love men of all races, I think the male species, in most ways, is a beautiful species. I guess my openness comes from my mother's side. She's always been a very loving and accepting person, and I feel that I have those attributes, especially when it comes to new friends. I trust 100 percent and allow the person to lower the amount of trust I have in them. But I digress, interracial dating is a sign that times are changing, it's just the select few who still have a problem with it.

I hope everyone is having a great day so far. I've got tons of chores to do in the house, so I was trying to make this short, lol. I can sometimes go on a tangent and get overboard with certain topics. Again, thanks to all my new followers, and a special shout out to Hello Pretty.
