Romeo Miller talks about critisim on interracial dating after breaking up with white girlfriend
Like most black celebrities dating or marrying interracially, Romeo Miller was also a victim of social media backlash after posting pictures of his girlfriend, Toneata Morgan (who is white), on Instagram. As harsh as critics are, they commented that Morgan was with him for the money and he should date a black woman.
Much as Romeo and Morgan are no longer an item, he passionately stands by people being able to date anyone who makes them happy, regardless of race; telling Rolling Out:
“At that time, the person I was dating, she was a different race … she’s White, I’m Black. At that time in my life, I wasn’t aware that that was still a big deal. There’s a lot more craziness going on in the world. A problem shouldn’t be whether I like somebody that’s Black, Chinese, Puerto Rican, or purple. If I love you, I love you for you.”
While with his girlfriend and while filming scenes for WEtv’s Growing Up Hip-Hop alongside Morgan he was in a position to talk about the backlash he received ... something he was very grateful for, saying:
Your perfect partner could be online right now...
What are you looking for?
“I think that’s the cool thing I was able to show on this TV show at that time in my life is that love is colorless at the end of the day, and you can’t live for other people. I haven’t been in many relationships, but what I learned from that relationship is that you have to make sure you’re happy.”
All he wanted was to bring awareness to the fact that its going to be a while before people absolutely understand that love doesn’t have a color.
Yap. Love knows no color that's for sure... Get It People!!!
