“I don’t think about our race. I don’t. When we first got together, yeah, of course. I had never been with a white guy seriously like that. So yeah, I definitely thought about it,” said Eve. “But we are so honest with each other that we have discussions, and that’s a beautiful thing.”
The couple met in 2010 before marrying in 2014 and she has never been shy when it comes to her husband’s race and their interracial marriage. Earlier this summer, Eve admitted that her husband doesn’t always understand the challenges African Americans face.
“I am in an interracial relationship. I am having some of the most difficult and uncomfortable conversations I think I’ve ever had, and vice-versa with my husband,” she said. “But, at the same time, it’s a beautiful thing because…I don’t know his life through his eyes. He doesn’t know my life through my eyes. All he can do is try to understand and try to ask the questions, and he wants to understand… but we have to be okay with being uncomfortable so that we can get to a solution.
Her comments on race caused quite a stir on social media, do you think her statement was out of line?
