For some reason, racist scumbags (or “trolls”) tend to care much less about interracial relationships when it’s a white man with a non-white woman. Seeing a white woman with a non-white man usually makes them much angrier. Probably because racists tend to be sexists as well pretty much 100% of the time.
You’re right, but don’t underestimate it. When I saw that OP specified in the title that they were both citizens, it brought back a lot of memories. That’s not something you’d see someone mention unless they had gotten some hate over the years. Even if you’re both born in the US, you can get bigots calling your GF/wife a mail-order bride.
