A heated debate about race has reared its head after Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade introduced the young lady that their young nephew and future basketball star, Dahveon Morris, is dating.

It is prom season, and Gabrielle was happy to share a few pictures and videos of Dahveon looking elegant in a black suit with his date wearing a stunning black gown.

Dahveon's proud mother, Deanna Morris, also posed for pictures to celebrate the significant milestone. Dwyane, who gained custody of Dahveon when he was 12 years old, looked delighted to witness the happy moment.

Many members of the African-American community are upset that Dahveon is dating a white girl.

One person had this reaction: "I guess they didn’t quite take your advice on dark skin women 🤦🏾‍♂️ How your stepmom Gabrielle Union one of the most BEAUTIFUL black women and you settle for a Becky 🥴. I will cry my eyes out if my son took a white girl to anything. 😩"

This Instagram user said race should not be discussed in a post about two happy teenagers going to prom and added: "See how normal rich ppl do prom y’ all got all of you mommas spending savings and doing title loans 🤧🥴🥴🥴🥴I can’t believe ya’ll focus on the color of her skin this is 2019, she is a girl going to prom with her date, simple, leave the race card out of these horrible comments."

This woman had this to say: "If it were white people hating on a white boy for taking a black girl, it would be so awful. Why does it matter if she is white and he’s black? I think they both look great! 🙄🙄Anyone in the comments complaining about the color of her skin is racist. Please don’t try to act like you’re not. If you don’t like the fact that she is a different ethnicity/race you are apart of the problem in this country and around the world."

A defender of the family claimed: "Too many people see race in this photo when they should see two HAPPY teens about to go to prom! Racism is taught! Stop adding to the problem people smh and feeling sorry for every individual hating on kids going to prom based on race and trying to teach our kids to do better? Take a look in the mirror & start with yourselves. Salty AF. 🤦🏻‍♀️"

This fan explained: "Too bad everyone can't see past color to see how they wanted to example they have a blended family and make it work. That's what's wrong with society."

Was this controversy necessary?

    I taught my son who is very good looking DO NOT DATE WHITE GIRLS...I didn't teach him to be prejudice, I taught him that BLACK WOMEN are strong and beautiful, and that he would never have to curve his conversations because of a white girl.

    If prejudice is what u want to call a black mother of a black son in 2019 who looks at the world and I tell my sons stay away from white girls...and don’t trust white ppl in general. Look at history! Every time a black athlete is sold out for personal reasons...his wife is white! Look at dude in nfl whose wife sent those tapes about him abusing his son to the media...WHITE....Odell taped n a hotel room...with who...a white chick...I could go on and on but I won’t waste my post will b the same when they (white ppl) sell him out years from now. That’s what keeps us bound as a ppl...we always wanna be right even when we have to sacrifice ourselves the right thing would be to love everyone equally but that only works in our favor if everyone else thought the same way

    Racism will always be a issue unfortunately. We as individuals have to learn to live with it. And try not to let it impact ones life. It's never going away. It is taught everyday by people. It is what it is. Don't let it chose your life or how you chose your way of life.
