Sitcom star gets emotional talking about her mixed-marriage to Fox News reporter

mowryA story involving racial hatred gets plenty of play in the national media today, assuming it fits the liberal narrative.

In the case of Tamera Mowry, star of the 90s sitcom “Sister Sister,” the fit is a bit awkward —  she is a black woman in a mixed-race marriage to Fox News correspondent Adam Housely.

During a recent appearance on “Oprah: Where Are They Now,” Mowry talks about hatred direct toward her on social media, according to Hollywood Life.

Seemingly from other blacks.

“See, this is where I get emotional, because it’s hurtful,” the actress said as she began to cry. “Because when my husband and I are so openly — we’re fine with showing love. Love. But people choose to look past love and spew hate.”

Mowry said she has “never experienced so much hate ever in my life, ever.”

“I get called ‘white man’s whore,’” she said, struggling to get the words out. “The new one was ‘back in the day you cost $300, but now you’re giving it to him for free.’”

With her sister Tia at her side, she talked about how she is compared to her sibling.

“They say, ‘Oh, Tia’s a true black woman because she married a black man,’” Tamera said. “Oh, I’m less of a black person because I married white?”

But it’s not merely that she married outside her race, as conservative firebrand Michelle Malkin stated in a column: “It’s also that she is so open about her love for a white man who — gasp! — works for reviled Fox News.”

In the polarized era of Barack Obama, that alone is enough.
