Un-thinkable

Alicia Keys recently released the video to her new single "Un-thinkable". She is gorgeous (and so is Chad Michael Murray). I also really love the concept of this video. It includes the issue of interracial dating, which even though we are living in a new era, there a still some reservations among people when this issue arises. I have noticed among the Black community, especially among African Americans, that there is an uproar when it comes to interracial dating. Don't get me wrong, many people are completely able to look beyond physical appearances to see beautiful connection between two people... love. Others, however, are still hung up on race and things like "Why black men choose to date/love/marry white women" or "Why Black women choose white men, etc". I actually have a friend from Drew, who, whenever I tell him that I am in a relationship, the VERY first question that he asks is if it's a "White guy". I called him out on it, asked him why he's always so concerned with race and he wasn't fully able to explain. I'm guessing it's just a thing with this country. I don't know. On the other hand, with West Indians, people from the Caribbean, etc. their main concern with their women dating Caucasian men is that they may have a "rich man" to "take care of [them] and to buy [them] expensive things". This mindset is just one big mess. Love is love. Love sees no color. Love has no price. Love has no limits nor boundaries. Love is a gift from the Most High and therefore:
"-- Love is patient.
-- Love is kind.
-- It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
-- It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
-- Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
-- It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
-- Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away"

~I Corinthians 13:4-8 (New International Version)~
