Being in an interracial marriage isn’t easy. People, whom I thought were okay with us being together, suddenly distanced themselves after we got married because they believe you have to be with your ‘own’ (religion and race wise). Who do I have to consider my ‘own’ if my ‘own people’ reject me? To me, PEOPLE are my ‘own’. Whoever came with the brilliant idea not to mix, is an ignorant fool and I refuse to live a life that is not of my own! I’ve always known I was different than the average Kurdish girl and I always knew I wasn’t fully accepted by Kurdish people. I said what I thought and I didn’t hold back. Many ‘good’ Kurdish girls are obedient to their families and husband. I want to have my own opinion and not be told how I have to live my life. It isn’t only with Kurdish people. Oh no, not only with them but with many other people whom are not Kurdish. I’ve received many ‘looks’ (you know which ones) from black people as well and many other races.
