I came across this well photographed wedding recently that had me happy and sad. When I tell people I am not black, they think I am running from my identity. But then I say color doesn’t exist, it’s a social construct. Yes this post is about that kind of stuff.
Look at this wedding, ask your self, where is this mans family? Friends? Colleagues? You expect them to be his skin color, hair type and eye color? Then you are part of the problem! This is just two people, who happen to have genetic differences getting married.
For all we know he is African, born in Zimbabwe. Maybe even adopted. Yes people, Africans can adopt too! Lets just assume this lovely couple met in kindergarten. From the looks of it, his best men are locals so he must be a local too. Infact those could be his brothers. There was a Nigerian Couple who did give Birth to a “Caucasian” baby. Google it.
If you have to tell people you are in a mixed raced relationship, then you need to check your self. Imagine going around saying things like, my white wife is taking our mixed kids to the mall. Sounds stupid right? No one asked, no one cares. Stop evangelizing where there is no podium.
The comments on this post on imgur kept highlighting how beautiful mixed raced babies would be like his genes would save the baby from being an ugly Darkie. Don’t tell me I am over analyzing. Everytime I see these so called interracial (stupid fucking word) couples, it’s always the best of both world. We all comment on how gorgeous they both are, and in some cases how one is a beast and the other is a beauty (think seal or kanye)
We are all human, the human race, we shouldn’t be treated like trophies, case studies or fantasies. I can tell you from experience that all vaginas are the same no matter the skin color, the differences aren’t by your made up concept of race but just because that person has a different vagina. Simple as that.
Yes I am a shade of color that must described, I prefer mocha espresso because I am not fucking black. Close your eyes, that’s black you moron. Want to see white? Take an A4 paper, yes that’s white. Sorry but your post slavery racial ideologies don’t affect me. Don’t ask me why I sound the way I do assuming that my skin color dictates a certain accent or dress style right? You are the issue with the world. Ask my name first and my dreams and passions, not where my parents where born or what I am mixed with.
Stop romantizing the ideas you see in pornography. I don’t care if you only like “black guys” or just “oriental” keep it to your illetrate self, you like a guy named funfere not a stylish African. I am not defined by my birth place, I am a man with goals to live anywhere I want and not be refered to as the African. Yes we must have order in the immigration system, in that case I am ok with the title of Nigerian (until I switch to whatever I damn well please) and you must accept your nationality too. Stop calling your self white or black or mixed. It’s stupid.
In conclusion I hope they got married for the right reasons, I hope his family wanted to come (assuming they aren’t there in the photos) but missed their flight and I hope people don’t go around asking their kids where their parents are from and how they met. Sadly these wedding photos do fit into a stereotype but it may be a tradition to ride elephants in Zimbabwe. I am not judging and I don’t care. Stay blessed and stay inspired.
