Some people look at interracial couples and sneer. But mixed people look at them and inwardly cheer.
We imagine what their kids look like. We wonder how they met and fell in love. And when we do hear about their love story we get all starry-eyed. It reminds us of our parents, our upbring and our future. A future where being with someone who isn’t the same color as you isn’t frowned upon, even in a seemingly politically correct society.
Celebrity couples are key in helping bring forth the wind of change we’d like to see. Everyone may not know the happily married interracial couple down the street from you, but most people are familiar with basic Hollywood news. So when a celebrity interracial couple gets a cover story in a magazine or spotlighted on a TV show it’s a good news day for mixed people worldwide.
