Race Relations

Happy Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. day!

Sara Benincasa is a part of the 2008 MTV News Choose or Lose Street Team, and last week she interviewed us and asked about what life is like in an interracial relationship.

Instead of listening to our carefully rehearsed, politically correct and socially sensitive answers, she decided to ask one of the many wig heads I keep in my apartment.

Of all of the things I pretend are my children, this one is the one I consider closest to our hearts. He has curly hair like me and blonde hair like some distant, Nordic relative of Luke's. Like both of us, he has dry skin, and he's made of styrofoam so he's irreplaceable.

OMG, you and Luke are still together? Now I feel like a total ass for hitting on him at Bowery Poetry last week...

We were on a break at that point. It's totally cool.

To which you replied, "It's like any other relationship except MTV reporters keep asking what it's like to be in an interracial relationship."

And I also apologize for hitting on Luke at Bowery Poetry last week...

He has mesmerizing blue eyes. Like a Siberian Husky. You didn't stand a chance.
