FKA Twigs Responds To Twitter Intolerance
After rumors started spreading about FKA Twigs and Robert Pattinson’s alleged relationship, the internet exploded with the usual racism that one could expect from the world wide web. I’m more surprised that she was surprised than by the racist bullshit. I have been exclusively involved in interracial relationships since I was old enough to understand that girl cooties were everything I wanted in life.
In every single relationship I have ever had, my significant other and I have faced some sort of racism. Be it the old black man yellin’ “Race Trader” at my girlfriends, or the hillbilly white trash people staring at us at Starbucks. I have seen and heard pretty much everything anyone could possibly say/do to try and offend. Maybe I am so desensitized to it now that it stopped bothering me, but one thing is for sure: it never surprises me anymore.
I used to get pissed off and try to fight all the dudes who would come at my sideways with that racist bullshit, but what do I get out of them getting me worked up? The last memorable encounter I had was on a train coming home from a day out with my wife. We were cuddled up on the seat enjoying our ride when two young Black Israelites started explaining to us that she was my slave.
Racism is wrong no matter who is spewing it. The black women who are mad at black men for dating white women, the black men doing the opposite, the racist white parents who try to ban their children from dating outside their race, its all wrong.
It makes me sad that people just don’t understand that love is love. You can’t pick who you are attracted too. You can’t pick who you fall in love with. I’m sorry that FKA Twigs and Rob Pattinson got their first taste of Swirl Society hatred, but hopefully it will strengthen their relationship.
