    So he ain't black...........

    But I like him anyways.
    I don't care for your opinions
    or what my friends would say

    So...he ain't black...

    But you best believe he's mine
    You may have had him once
    But I got him for a lifetime

    I love my man
    He's got sandy blond hair
    Pircing Blue eyes
    And hold a passionate stare

    I gotta bank account of my own
    I 'm not with him for the money
    We can both hold our own
    Our Love flows like honey

    So yeah he's a white boy
    And you're so quick to judge
    You say Im a fu&king sellout
    Cuz I didn't marry the fudge

    But come on.....
    I wasn't running from the brothers
    I can't help loving my man
    So what if he's another color?

    I can't believe the haters...
    That everyday look me down
    Everytime I hold his hand
    Black folks stare and frown.

    Some call him the devil...
    Others call him a *******...
    Sh*t mkes me so mad..
    I could run them down on Wacker(Drive)

    So........he ain't black...

    And you are so quick to judge
    Got to call me a trick..
    Just because I didn't fall in love with fudge

    *This is for all the haters of interracial relationships*

    Hey gurl. You know what? I feel you on this. It's wrong for one to judge one by skin color. People are so quick to judge people when they see interracial couples. Me, I'm all for it, if he treats you right I guess he alright for you or the next person. The reason most people don't like a black to be with a white is because the whole slavery issue, but that was way in the past, and it wasn't him, so don't worry about it. Me, myself, haven't been around a whole lot of whites because of where I told ya'll I was from but I see nothing wrong wit it. Hey if the shoe fits wear it. Aw man, I'm sounding old again, well, at least this time I caught myself. Well, you get my point,right?

    Much Love,
    Foxy..............

    P.S Keep your state of mind keep thinking about yourself don't worry about what others say.

    Swt-t, you approach a very delicate subject........Fortunately for me I can look at this and be at peace.........been on both sides of the argument.......and I know how people "trip" in public........especially our own. Although, I'm not ignoring the fact that some arguments are well founded.......I just believe people should love others for who they are, not their color of their skin......However, when people date other races exclusively it gives me reason to think that there are underlying “issues”.

    I personally have a family of many shades and I love them dearly, it’s not until we get stared down in public do I…”suddenly remember” But when people connect it has nothing to do with color…

    Conscious scribe!

    Much luv,
    Angeli

    And even though hostility is not the best answer, sometimes that's the only answer to solve our problems with....

    SwtT,
    First of all, I want to say tyte flo. Keep them coming. Thank you for this. As being a sista... I never knew exactly how to put my love for my other brothas into words and poetry. I hear it comes naturally. Now after reading this piece... I realize to actually grow as a person, you got to stop listening to everybody and just do it.... I understand where you are coming from with this... I have been there, done it. Regret? I don't. I thought Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream for everyone to able to be judge not on color of the skin but by the content of character.... Instead of being America, the land of free...... should be America, the land of the ignorance... But for real though.... SwtT... keep these flo's coming and remember stay real to yourself......

    *Note to self: In about 2 weeks, make history(poetry) with SwtT*
    lol

    Thank you so much for this piece. All my life I have been in interacial relationships. I have always had the view of whoever I fall in love with that's who I fall in love with. I understand what angelicsage says about until we're in public do I remember that we are "different". But poeple that are close to me understand me and the rest that don't....I wasn't put here to please you. You weren't put here to please me. You can have your opinions, I have mine. But please keep them to yourself. Once again...Thanks for this piece. Put my pen in the writing mood again. MUCH Much much love SwtT.
