It’s pretty amazing that in 2019, people still find the idea of interracial dating to be in any way a negative thing, but alas here we are.

In this particular case, Twitter user Najma Sharif who goes by the handle ‘@overdramatique’ wondered out loud how it’s possible for any black person to fall in love with a white person, seeing as white people are gross I guess.
Thousands of people Liked the Tweet before she made her account private, due to the thousands of others who were quick to let Najma know what a complete and utter pillock she is:
This is blatant racism, the ancestors of both white, black and Hispanic people who couldn’t be with each other because of racism would roll in their graves seeing a young person from a free generation promoting the idea people from different races shouldn’t love each other. Sad.

Brilliant! In fact maybe the Supreme Courts should reverse the 1967 Love vs. Virginia decision and make it illegal for blacks and whites to marry again.
Truly, only a Democrat could tweet something THIS stupid. Liberals have convinced some black people to oppress themselves. https://t.co/LSjGNBA4tL

Wow ! This is how far we’ve gone back ! I thought we were way past this ! My dad was born in 1918 & when he died in 1991 he didn’t even think this way !

Imagine the OUTRAGE if a white person tweeted this. Hypocrites all over twitter🤦🏾♂️

Oh look, a verified twitter racist

this is racist. almost no different from a white person saying “black folks are repulsive. do not breed with them.” I would expect this mindset from white supremacists. as a black woman who doesn’t base physical attraction on the color of a person’s skin, I’m uncomfortable.

The best responses though came from those who themselves are in interracial marriages and relationships:
Whatever went “wrong” here I am truly grateful for 🙂 She melts my heart every day. pic.twitter.com/F7YfpArYiz

I dont know what went “wrong” with her, but I thank God every day it did, making me the luckiest man alive. And please dont do that whole 1967 love vs Virginia thing… that would really damper my plans for this year pic.twitter.com/AZvhE4PJJt

Now whether Najma really feels this way or whether she was just trolling (in which case – A+) is up for discussion, but even if it’s the latter you really shouldn’t be Tweeting things like that out into the universe. Just seems a tad counter-productive considering how far the civilised world has come regarding race relations. It’s a beautiful thing.
