Fresh Prince of Belair actor Alfonso Ribeiro is accusing the Black community of being unsupportive of his interracial marriage.
“I am in a mixed relationship. And I get things and looks and comments constantly,” he says.
“And I find it very interesting because you see a lot of things on social media where people say things and people have positions and perspectives. And it’s not easy to make that choice, because you’re not at home in any home. I’m never going to be white and I’m never going to be fully supported in the Black house. So I’m in my own little world with support from almost no one, to be in love with someone I’ve fallen in love with. How does that make sense? It doesn’t.”
He continued to Atlanta Black Star, “I will support any person that wants to live in a world that they want to live in. I’ll support a racist person to live in a world that they want to live in. They don’t have to be around me. But if that’s the world that they want to live in, they should have a right to live in that world. I live in a mixed world. I love in a mixed world. I live in a Black world, and I love in that world. I feel everyone should be supported.”
