Tamera-Mowry-Interracial-Marriage-Racism

Although she’s a product of an interracial relationship, Tamera Mowry and twin sister, Tia Mowry, sat down with Oprah during a “Where Are They Now,” on OWN, to discuss the racism she’s faced since marrying her husband and Fox News correspondent, Adam Housely (a white man), in 2011.

Discussing the hurt she’s experience Mowry-Housely tearfully admits, “I get called a white man’s whore.”

“The new one was ‘back in the day you cost $300, but now you’re giving it to him for free,” she recalls.

“I couldn’t even fathom or think of these words, because I’m a product of it,” she continued.

“My mom is a beautiful black woman and my dad is an amazing white man, and I grew up seeing a family. I didn’t grow up saying, ‘Oh, that’s a white man.’

She also reveals the comparison she gets to her sister because she’s married a black man, actor Cory Hardrict.

“They say, ‘Oh, Tia’s a true black woman because she married a black man,’ Tamera said. “Oh – I’m less of a black person because I married white?” (Tia then interjects revealing she’s faced racism for the exact opposite, for marrying a black man.”

Tamera also adds, “I love my husband so much,’ Mowry said. ‘I love our family. I love our dynamic. I’m proud to be in the relationship I am because it’s based on love. Pure love.”

Tamera and Adam have a 14-month old son together, Adam Housely.

    This is unfortunate, but I understand why blacks do not like it and I am a White man. There is way to much bad blood between Whites and Blacks for it to be accepted.
