    Adam Housley is not going to stay quiet while his marriage becomes the target of racist remarks.

    Tamera Mowry's husband has spoken out against those who have spewed hurtful comments regarding his interracial marriage to the former child star. "The fact that in this day and age, we get attacked for our interracial relationship is beyond sad…it is pathetic," Housley tells TVNewser.

    "Yes, I am white. Yes, she is half-black. Marrying a white man does not erase her color and marrying a woman who is half-black does not mean I am blinded. The problem isn't pigmentation…the problem is backwards, bigoted thought from people who should know better."

    The former Sister, Sister star, who is the product of an interracial relationship herself, opened up about that subject when she and her twin sister Tia appeared on an episode of OWN's Oprah: Where Are They Now? Friday.

    "It's hurtful, because my husband and I are so openly and fine with showing love, but people choose to look past love and spew hate," an emotional Tamera said. "That's what hurts me because I've never experienced so much hate ever in my life."

    "I get called ‘white man's whore,'" she continued, with tears rolling down her face. "The new one was ‘back in the day you cost $300, but now you're giving it to him for free."

    Regardless, Tamera keeps her head held high and focuses her energy on the blessings in her life, which includes her husband and their adorable son, 14-month-old Aden.

    "I love my husband so much," she said. "I love our family. I love our dynamic. I'm proud to be in the relationship I am because it's based on love. Pure love."
