Interracial community comes together to support young family

Posted by James, 29 Jan 15

The internet can be a cruel place for interracial couples. People can lash out and stay anonymous, without a thought about the real people they may have hurt. One couple, Jacob and Cassia, encountered such a cruelty when an intimate family photo the took was turned in to fodder for ridicule by way of meme generation.

What are you looking for?

The above meme was one of many cruel memes that were distributed, and when the couple found out, they were hurt and disillusioned.

Christelyn Karazin, publisher for Beyond Black & White and ambassador for InterracialDatingCentral caught wind of the events and decided to turn the tables on the negativity. Take a look!

As a result of the meme challenge, Jacob and Cassia’s story was spread throughout social media and reached millions. Dozens of positive memes were created by readers who were inspired by the family.

Here are a few:

What Jacob and Cassia discovered is that the interracial dating/marriage community online is a circle of support for them and their family, and while the haters may keep hating, they all get drowned out by all the love!

      God doesn't work like that. Like attracts like. You may find a man you love and he may black or something else? I think this is where people go wrong. I've dated outside my race because basically men are men. I don't limit my opitions based on a guys skin color. If im attracted to himand we mesh, I dont care ahout his race. The thing isn't to find a white man if your dreams, but to find some who compliments you. The fact your open to dating out your race is a plus bc you now have a bigger selection to choose from. Interracial dating is wonderful but you never know what "God" has for you. Most people are on here because we pefer or usually date interracially. However if someone were walking down the street and by happenstance met "the one" who was their hue it would be foolish not to give them a fair shot as well? Ijs
