Monday Musings: Reverse Interracial GTFOH…

So, I’ve been seeing this term “reverse interracial” on my Tumblr timeline when photos of IR couples are tagged. At first, I was like WTF is a reverse interracial until I noticed a pattern. I give you Exhibits A, B, and C:

Happy Couple

Any IR romance fan will recognize these photos with your eyes closed because they’ve been used on more covers than not, but my point is, this is what is considered “reverse” interracial-a black woman in a relationship with a white man. And to that, I say GTFOH! So if I’m a black woman who chooses to be with a white man, I’m going backwards? As in reverse? These labels kill me…Let’s recap:

“Reverse” Interracial

Yeah, ok…

    1. It is offensive. Cause you know, to be with a black woman is like taking a step back or some shit. I laugh tho and add this to the same shit pile as “reverse racism”. It just doesn’t exist lmao.
