It’s love without boundaries. Sometimes it’s crazy to think about how it wasn’t too long ago inter-racial marriages were not only frowned upon, but criminalized. It was dangerous, forbidden, to be hidden. Today, that door has been broken, burned, and shattered. People from all different races, nationalities, and ethnicities are getting together. While some people still choose to raise their noses or frown upon this intermingling of people, for the most part, the world today is cool with it.
