Kellee (Tells us how she can relate to the themes on Guess Who): I have not brought anybody home, however I was that for someone else. Across the street from where I lived in Pennsylvania I dated a blonde, blue-eyed caucasian guy, and his parents were not happy to see me across the street with him. And it was very, very hurtful. I was called the 'n' word. Had the principal call his parents into school to let them know that he was dating an African-American girl, what that was like, and it was very painful for me in my childhood. My wonderful mother was the forefront of my life, the rock of my life, who said, 'Listen, this does not define you. This is not who you are. This is ignorance in its worst guise and you have to decide whether or not it's worth it for you.' And at that moment it wasn't.
Now I think you can love whoever you want to love. Love should be colorblind. It's not always, but it definitely should be. But at that moment I learned a hard lesson. I will never let anyone degrade me, no matter what color they are.
