Monday Musings: Reverse Interracial GTFOH…

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:
