This is sweet-Gwen’s duet with Andre 3000,”Long Way To Go”,from the Love.Angel.Music.Baby. album is included on Yahoo!’s list of Top 10 Songs about Interracial Love. It’s nice to see the song be recognized in such a way for the moving message it represents.
There is no doubt that America has come along way from our slavery embracing past to electing our first black president, but there is still a lot more work to be done. Want proof? Spend some time with an interracial couple, and take note of the dirty looks. And for what? Because two people with a different skin color love each other? Pathetic. When I see an interracial couple it gives me hope that one day the racial divide will only be found in history books. Eventually, if the human race can survive long enough, there will only be one race born from the unions of all colors — producing children who are living embodiments of the human race. And they will be absolutely beautiful. But until that time, it’s up to us to support and embrace those who love each other, no matter what color they are. This playlist includes 10 songs that speak in some way about interracial romantic love.
