Tamera Mowry-Housley said that amid racial tensions in the country, criticism of her interracial marriage has gotten worse.
The actress and co-host of daytime talk show “The Real” opened up to Momtastic about the negative comments she receives as a biracial woman who married journalist Adam Housley, a white man.
“I think the criticism is even worse now, with the racial tension that we’re seeing and the political climate,” Mowry-Housley said. “But my husband, who is so great, said, ‘You know what, Tamera? This is just teaching you to focus on the thousands of people that are for you, as opposed to the very few people who are against you.'”
While she did have to deal with naysayers at the beginning of her relationship, Mowry-Housley said she never expected to still be receiving flack for dating a white man.
“He’s right. When we first came out publicly as a couple 12 years ago, I remember a few negative comments, such as ‘never expected her to be with him,'” she recalled. “But I never expected it to reach this degree of criticism as I got older.”
