Meet Their Multi-Racial Family

Introducing the blended Simpson family…

What we noticed, after Donnie shared a photo family pic online, is that some of his fans were apparently caught off guard after learning that both of his children married outside of their race.

Donnie Jr.’s and Dawn’s spouses are White, as you can see, and some fans have expressed their shock:

One fan wrote, “Ummmmm…. well…..I guess the kids had a preference. All in all…nice family pic.”

Another fan questioned, “Who are all these white ppl?”

And then another followed with the same question, “Wait, is this his family????”

It’s understandable why many may be surprised at Donnie’s family, given that he and his wife, Pam, have been like a pillar of Black love for so many decades. However, the thing that cannot be ignored is that they all clearly love each other, beyond color lines.

That fact is also evident by the touching online tribute Donnie Simpson paid to his daughter on her wedding day in 2015. His post captured the essence of a father coming to terms with the fact that his little girl ain’t so little anymore. It also captured the essence of what transpires after the realization that when we pull back the outward layers of skin tones, race and all of the unfortunate social issues that come with it, there is a human element that lies within.

Now, don’t get me wrong, it is oftentimes way too difficult to merely get to that pure, human element without seeing race. Why? Because the fact of the matter is that there are far too many injustices stemming from slavery, that still plagues our society today, but it’s still cool to witness the human element of color-less love in all of it’s shades when we get the opportunity to. Thus, we leave y’all with Donnie’s tribute to his daughter and son-in law:

I’ve been dying to tell you how my daughter’s wedding went, but I wanted to wait for a photo I could include. Plus it’s…
