Life is happening for Tamera Mowry, one of our beloved “Sister, Sister” twins, with a hit reality show, a supportive hubby and now, her role as a first time mommy. As happy as this time is in her life, Tamera’s interracial relationship and biracial child are the target of negative, unsolicited commentary from fans and critics alike. The new mother set the critics straight by addressing crude comments made about her marriage and her baby’s skin color.

Tamera posted an open letter thanking all of her fans for their support and putting the haters right back in their seat:

“Tia and I have always known we have amazing fans, but reading all your messages and comments on this blog make it even clearer. When people say ignorant things about Aden’s race or my marriage with his daddy Adam, it’s easy for me to take it personally – even after all this time, my skin isn’t that thick!”

She continued to show gratitude towards all of her fans for the mental support by sharing their own stories of interracial relationships.

“Hearing your stories about your own beautiful, mixed race babies and the love you have for their fathers grounds me back to reality and reminds me of the truth. Skin color has nothing to do with love. How Aden looks or grows up to look like – whether he looks more “white” or more “black” – doesn’t matter to me. Why should it? He’s my precious baby boy and my only job is to be the best mommy I can be to him while showing him both sides of his heritage. All I want for him to believe is that love knows no boundaries.”

In her blog post, Tamera also touches on an emotional story of the day her life flashed before her eyes:

“The other day, Adam, Aden and I had a brush with a very scary situation. We were driving along on the highway, when all of a sudden the car in front of us crashed into the car in front of it. We watched in horror as the car flipped over and over and over again on the highway. It was terrifying… I still get chills now just thinking about it.”

Still shaken up and amid the chaos of emotional events, she wanted to leave these impressionable words with her fans in regards to her newfound outlook on fear and pain:

“Life is too short to not do what you have set your heart out to do. Life is too short to hold any grudges. Life is short, and life is beautiful. To have the gift of life is a blessing. Many die daily and if you are alive right now, then you have been given that gift.”

I agree. Life is way too short to rely on fear and the opinion of others to shape your decisions. In a society where interracial couples are increasingly becoming more prevalent, you would think the shock factor of a black woman and white man has lost its appeal. Apparently, this remains a tumultuous issue that some people feel they need to address through negative commentary. It’s good to see Tamera rise above it.

What do you think of Tamera’s comments, Clutchettes?

    I’ve gotta agree with what everyone said on here. It’s none of anyone’s business who a person marries and people need to focus on their own love lives rather than another’s.

    That said- I do think that the Mowry twins tend to take the petty internet banter a bit too deeply. If memory serves me, people had nasty things to say about Tia’s baby as well, and she was just as upset. It’s unfortunate, but social media is filled with vicious, sad people with nothing better to do. The Mowry twins should just ignore these insignificant fools.

    I wonder if all of those who are hatin’/criticizin’/etc. on Tia are just as critical about Kim and Kanye and all of those other celebrities couples where he’s black and she’s white…

    Um, Sam, you know you responded to the wrong message. I feel bad about even continuing this with you. It’s like making fun of a mentally challenged goat.

    As to your “argument” what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone on this website is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    Don’t feel bad Sam, all the laughter you hear after every sentence you utter, they are laughing with you, not at you.

    Brief enough for you?

    Why do people continue to ask this same dumb ass question, that’s been answered a dozen times already??

    The answer is yes, we are just as critical of Clown-Ye West, as we are of the T twins.

    There is no double standard here. I don’t know why people (women especially) wanna act as if there is one.

    If someone were to write an article about Clown-Ye’s silly ass, I would be blasting his ass too.

    But why are people tripping, because other people have an opinion?? So the T twins can post their opinions, but we can’t post ours?

    It’s not like people are sending death threats people to her or her baby, we are commenting on our views about IR’s, which, last I checked, we all have the right to do.
