A photograph of a Scottish professor and his Ghanaian wife both dressed in their [more or less] traditional attire has sparked conversations regarding interracial relationships on a social media.
Professor John Struthers, The Honorary Consul for Ethiopia in Scotland, attended the Queen's garden party in July of this year accompanied by his wife, Justina, and recently shared a photo they took at the event.
In his tweet, Professor Struthers shared that he and his wife - who's Ghanaian born - have dealt with "disapproving looks" and annoying questions and actions throughout their 40 year plus relationship, but that they're still going strong.
"The best way of fighting racism is living your life, and standing tall and educating. #diversity," ended the professor's message.
Professor Struther's message seemed to have struck a note with more than a couple other people, because his tweet has since been like over 60,000 times, retweeted over 20,000 times, and received over 2,000 replies.
Many online users from all over the world have followed in the professors footsteps and shared photos of their interracial families and showing their diversity.
