TAMERA: ‘SKIN COLOR HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH LOVE’
Tamera Mowry-Housley believes that color is only skin deep and wants the Internet world to know that it has nothing to do with affection. The actress recently took to her blog to address recent comments made about her and Adam’s inter-racial marriage and their 2-month-old son Aden.
“When people say ignorant things about Aden’s race or my marriage with his daddy Adam, it’s easy for me to take it personally – even after all this time, my skin isn’t that thick,” wrote Tamera. “Skin color has NOTHING to do with love. How Aden looks or grows up to look like – whether he looks more ‘white’ or more ‘black’ – doesn’t matter to me. Why should it? He’s my precious baby boy and my only job is to be the best mommy I can be to him while showing him both sides of his heritage. All I want for him to believe is that love knows no boundaries.”
Tamera and Adam welcomed baby Aden into the world on November 12, 2012. He is their first child together. The couple wed in 2011.
