So I saw this “random” article on my facebook newsfeed and immediately got excited! And then as I continued to click, I got even more excited!
I thought this was particularly fun and exciting especially because there are so many examples to pull from. When I was a kid “Jungle Fever” was so taboo. Back then, interracial dating wasn’t nearly as popular or featured in mainstream media and pop culture as it is today. So I love all of these beautiful examples of interracial couples in all of their fantastic varieties.
Extra gold stars for the biracial people in interracial relationships. Can we call that “Binterracial” dating? (I’m gonna do it anyway…)
Number 6, 7 and 19 are my favorites!
Thanks blackbeat.topix.com for this #familyremix -tastic compilation!

#6 What’s love got to do with it? Uh, everything!
#7 is just a beautiful woman with a good fella!
And of course my absolute all-time favorite…..#19 The truth is, sometimes That’s the way love goes!
Ps she may be expecting so the world will be blessed with yet another mixed person! (Yay!!) Never mind the fact that the yet-to-be-born-child has derailed my concert plans but I’m willing to compromise because she’s family. (This is not yet a proven fact, but in my 8 year old mind I was convinced she was my birth mom. And since I have yet to identify who my actual birth mom is, it’s more entertaining for me to still claim her.)
Side Note: #30 is an interesting inclusion. While I am a fan of this power couple, I dislike the description of her mixed heritage as “complicated”… It’s obviously not that complicated if the author could breakdown what it is! Maybe I’m sensitive but I thought it was an interesting/poor word choice.
Nonetheless, it’s a celebration of interracial love!!
Enjoy and tell me who are some of your favorite interracial couples on this list or not on this list?
