"It's hard for some to understand how racism—especially towards the families of mixed ethnicity, can still be very much a part of our culture in the 2000s. The truth is this kind of hatred, more precisely evil, still exists on a larger scale than we'd even care to accept. It was the late 80s, and I wasn't trying to fall in love, especially with the African-American quarterback our high school's football team. I was 15 years old. My family forbade it, society hated and scorned us and openly voiced their "disgust." Then we married and made beautiful children. That's when the battle intensified. At times, we couldn't even leave our house without getting harassed and tormented. There were moments that our lives were threatened. When the entire world was fighting against us, our family's unity and God got us through. He has blessed us with four amazing children and 28 years and counting of doing life together. God brought us together, and that together keeps us strong. Love doesn't give up, but sometimes it takes a fight. Don't give up. You must fiercely fight to protect each other, build each other up and at the end of the day, LOVE always wins."
