I didn't know your parents were intrarracial. And although I respect and mostly agree with everything you said, I was wondering a little about your background as well. I wouldn't have exactly pegged you as black or completely black.That's a good question about my parents and I think that's partly WHY I feel the way I do... because I've had the opportunity to hear peoples' comments and see their reactions all my life and to experience first-hand the various misconceptions people have.You are certainly entitled to your opinion and I totally respect it. I, for one, am not offended by it. But I am curious how your views factor into how you view your parents marriage, though. Many would consider them an interracial couple, simply based on their skin color and not knowing anything about their mixed heritage.
I do think that there are some equal partnerships between white and Black people where there is no power imbalance, definitely. But I think as the Black person getting into an interracial marriage, you're (gy) the one taking the risk that it may not be one of those.
But it's all good.
