Why Tamera Mowry Cried To Oprah About Her Interracial Marriage

Source: Luchina Fisher / ABC News

One half of the bubbly identical twin stars of the 90s television sitcom “Sister, Sister” and reality show “Tia & Tamera,” Mowry choked back tears as she opened up on “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” about the hateful comments she’s gotten on social media since her interracial marriage to Fox News Channel correspondent Adam Housley in 2011.

“I’ve never experienced so much hate, ever, in my life,” Mowry-Housley, who co-hosts “The Real,” said, wiping away tears while sitting beside twin Tia Mowry.

She then recalled some of the comments: “White man’s whore.” “Back in the day, you cost $300, but now, you’re giving it away for free.”

The words are especially hard to hear because Mowry-Housley grew up in a biracial family.

    You’ve never experience this because you were always protected. Now you are out here on your own. Now you see all the ugliness.

    It saddens me to see this beautiful young woman hurt like this by people who do not know her but feel they have the right to say whatever they want because she is on tv. Who are they to judge? They may have the right to their opinion but they need to keep it to themselves. There are ignorant, hateful people of all races and it just too bad they have such a strong desire to spread their poison around. Personally I have 2 white daughters in-law a 2 white sons in law and 1 black son in-law. Bottom line is they all love my children they are married to and are good fathers and mothers and I love them all. Not because they are black or white but because they are family. We may not agree all the time about everything but love is the key.,

    The same Negroes out there running there mouths are the same ones, who are same one who would never consider marrying anyone themselves, but they are going to attack this young lady, who not only choose to have a child with her Husband, but choose to be married, when she did it. How many people are put there giving it away for free, having babies and aren’t even married to boot. Like they say, when you point at someone, 3 fingers point back at you. Personally I have no problem with interracial marriage as long as that person loves you and isn’t abusing you then what is the problem in this post racial era?

      You don’t have a problem with interracial marriage because you have undertones of self hate. Calling black people Negroes with such vigor is very disturbing..The concept of a post racial era is psychological term that was given too people of color too deceive.It is a fasle reality, because people of color throughout the entire planet are mistreated because of their features. In addition, people like yourself and other Judas types who will betray their own race for a few dollars or even kill their brothees and sister for turf are no different. How easy is it for you to side with others before your own? Or do you think we should love each other ,while others continue to have their foot on our necks.Think it over!!!.

    What I find puzzling is when monied black men marry white women, we do not hear of them openly experiencing what this young lady has. Often when black women marry white men, there is such an outpouring of derogatory statements. When will this country get past racial hatred on both sides of the fence? This is the 21st century, and I wonder when will we grow past these “isms”? When will our hearts finally we set free from hatred, pride, fear, arroganc, bitterness and resentment?

    Of course you “love who you love” but it’s sad that in 2014 people who are of a different race have to consider more than just where they’re going to be married, who’s going to marry them and how many family members are they going to invite apiece.
