Photographer Captures The Hurt That Comes With Interracial Dating

When love becomes a race war, it's no longer love.

Like I always say, "love knows no color". It's such a shame that we still live in a world where couples can't be genuinely happy with who they choose to love. The color of someones skin should not be the topic of discussion in 2015. According to this heart wrenching images taken by photographer, Donna Pinckley in her exhibit titled "Sticks and Stones" interracial couples were photographed to remind others about the harsh world we live in.
Along with each photograph comes an insult that the couple was told by a stranger. Trust me, they are hurtful. Comments ranged from "They are disgusting." to "If she can't use your comb, don't bring her home!" According to Huff Post, Pinckley was photographing a white woman and her black boyfriend when the women told Pickney's mom comments they've heard, including, "If you go black, they won't touch you." Words definitely cut deep, but not deep enough to break a true bond of love between two people. If you're interested in seeing love in no color at all, keep scrolling.

More like, people are mean and hurtful.

Love, well love is beautiful if you let it be.

Me n my parents are mixed. it's how you are raised. I was raised that I'm a human being. everyone else is human beings. yes everyone's different but that's just cultures. and mixing cultures can be fun, interesting, and a good thing. It's not bad. sharing differences is nice.

I agree! my nieces and nephews are mixed and my brother and sister in law are racing them to see love and not color. I def agree, it's all in how you're raised @candyland1986

@jordanhamilton that's how it was for me...we never really look at color...I never realized it was odd that I was a different color than my cousins till I started school...n heard ppl say how weird it was and ask what I was. I never knew till then, I thought I was the same as everyone else. It's weird growing up n seeing ppl reaction to me n my mom, sometimes they thought I was adopted or a foster kid. my mom taught me to take it in stride n with humor. sometimes ppl just don't know and they'r curious.
