excerpt from just another book I started and never finished *about interracial relationships* -a version of this story happened to me in real life (sad face)

“Bu–but I love him.” I said pouted lip, sounding pitiful like a spoiled child.
“Love don’t change nothin fool. Love don’t make you blacker. And love sure as hell don’t make him whiter. Y’all ain’t fittin. You don’t belong.” I half expected her to scream “now get!” the way she was shooing me away like some vermin that came wondering into a campsite unwanted looking for food scraps. I could not believe that a man that shook me to my very core of being, that conjured up such a magnificent love from my heart could have been created by a woman so drenched in hatred. Tears began to stream from my blue eyes, my face started to melt. I looked up at her, she seemed to be taking all the strength out of me and using it to make her face hard as a rock. She clenched her jaw and her eyes turned stone. I felt like a kid sobbing quietly so I did not receive another whooping. She turned and continued washing dishes, I gathered my purse and left, feeling more hopeless than ever.

  1. This hits home so close.. I’ve heard the… “you two just don’t fit” from an exes side of the family and my own. Doesn’t really matter what anyone else’s thoughts about your relationship is.. eventually they’ll get over it, or they’ll get lost..
