Tamera Mowry-Housley decided to marry to love of her life, Adam Housley, a couple of years back and the couple has a young son, Aden John Tanner. And while Tamera got the support of her fans, friends and family, many people have a hard time accepting this marriage because Adam is white. According to a new People report published on Jan. 21, Tamera Mowry-Housley is now revealing that she is still very much bothered by the racist comments that people make about her marriage.

“People choose to look past love and spew hate,” Tamera has previous revealed. “I get called ‘white man’s whore.’” She has been open about this issue on Twitter, on her reality show, and in various interviews. “What I’ve learned, honestly, is people who are saying this, it’s their issue, it’s their hate,” she tells PEOPLE. “As long as you don’t pass that along and be a part of that hate, you can be a change in the world. And that’s the reason why, honestly, I chose to speak of it.”

And it sounds like she is getting props for tackling such a big problem on her own. “My father is very proud of me, my mother is very proud of me, and also interracial couples are very proud of me,” she says. “It was very important to voice it, but at the same time move on from it and focus on positivity from now on.”

What do you think of how she handles everything?
