Love knows no boundaries. John Struthers, a Scottish professor, knows this better than most. He's been married to his Ghanian wife for over 40 years! During that time, the pair have experienced prejudice and racism far more than they ever should have, but they continued to stand strong through it all.
I thought I would share..— Prof. John Struthers (@jjstruthersuk) December 26, 2017
We’ve had disapproving looks, ‘we are full’, ‘is that your wife’ and many more actions questioning our relationship over the last 40+yrs
We haven't wavered!
The best way of fighting racism is living your life, standing tall and educating. #Diversity pic.twitter.com/jmd0F0i71r
This is a picture of my Grandparents on there wedding day year 1938. They face the terrible times of racism and they live their lives together for over 50 years. Love conquered hate, and conquered the status quo of race relations. #diversity #Love pic.twitter.com/CUMvByxPg3— Rhonda Chichester (@rhondachichest1) December 31, 2017
Heartened by the responses to this picture. My husband and I have experienced more overt resistance to our inter-ethnic marriage/family this year than the last 15 years combined. What a timely encouragement. We're more unified than ever & stand tall with you, @jjstruthersuk. https://t.co/cGuRHvNkq6— Luci Ramos Hoppe (@luciramoshoppe) December 31, 2017
