Interracial couple kissing churns stomachs

Posted by James, 27 Apr 09

“The 7 Best Places to Smooch” was one of the stories on the 10th April cover of GO! magazine and to go along with it was this photo of an interracial couple kissing. Well, that photo ended up generating a lot of queasiness in many – evidenced by reader comments of the online version - simply because a Black man was kissing a White woman. :roll:

Check out some of the comments:

“Haven’t read the story but dont like to see blacks and whites kissing;” – reader 1buschstadiumplz

“This doesn’t surprise me at all. Libs take every opportunity they can to shove miscegenation in our faces. Now that TV has to show blacks in every commercial, notice that they are always posed beside a blonde woman. Not a brunette, a blonde. Its done for shock value. Sickening that a once proud newspaper would resort ot this. Joe Pulitzer is turning over in his grave in shame.” – reader taxpayer

“I’m not judging the concept of biracial couples at all, but in a city as racially polarized as St. Louis, I’m shocked that the PD would go so out of its way to be so gratuitously provocative. This completely undercut the message of the article.” – reader greggh

PS: And these are just the subtle ones. Most of the comments had inappropriate offensive language.

To tell you the truth, the above is pretty disturbing if you ask me. The thing is, the couple on the cover wasn’t just models posing … it’s a real couple. I don’t want to imagine what they must have felt.

I gotta ask: In this day, age and era, how can a mere photo of interracial couple kissing arouse such racist comments?

    [...] more conservative and/or ignorant populations of St. Louis getting their panties in a twist over an interracial couple smooching on a magazine cover. I learned about it by reading an article on The Rootabout one interracial couple and their life [...]

    After viewing this innocent picture of a couple in an intimate moment. I've come to the conclusion that the true racist are just jealous. They can't stand to see anyone happy. They envy the romance and the electric but powerful chemistry that exists between a black man and white woman who happen to be in love....

    Public kissing is an expression of love. If love makes people sick then they probably aren't getting any.

    I cannot believe that such ignorance still exists today. I am in a very happy interracial marriage with two beautiful children!!! I do not know why people think they have the right to judge someone else. Just because you are white, does not make you superior. To the contrary, your attitude and ignorance put you right down there with the pond scum. If you don't want to see a black man kissing a woman or a white man kissing a black woman, close your eyes!! If it is on a magazine, don't buy it! We are growing in numbers, and we will not go away. We deserve to have advertising and that represents our reality as much as you do. You know the bible says that Jesus had bronze skin and hair like wool. Sure does sound like a black man to me!! Boy won't you racist idiots have some explaining to do in Heaven if he is. Maybe you won't get in, and the rest of us can finally have peace!!

    i am very well aware of the racism of interracial dating. My future wife is a latina but looks white. So I get horrible stares from black women and white men. When they find out she is spanish the spanish men get very upset. I'm just glad no one says anything.

    I just want to say that when I opened this blog it didn't suprise me that the subject was white women and black men.....I see absolutely nothing wrong with two people with different skin colors dating. What really suprises me is that people think it is wrong for a black and white person to be in a relationship, but they see nothing wrong with an hispanic and white dating....is that still considered "interracial dating?" I met a wonderful black man about 8 months ago...and yes, we get all the stares when we go in public...I guess I have gotten use to it, but at first it was really hard. I decided that I really cared about this man and stares were not going to stop me from being with a man I care about and who cares about me. We now live together and in the process of starting our own business. He takes really good care of me, helps around the house, and opens every door for me when we are together. Now I am not saying that I only date black men....but I do find myself more attracted to them... . .and this should not be about a persons skin color...what this should be about is two people who care about each other and want to build a relationship together.

    I think the comments on this blog are hilarious! But unfortunately racism is still a pretty strong point in our society. Its awesome that there are so many people who are into interracial dating! :)

    It is very difficult to experience prejudice of any sort but narrow minded people feel free to express blatent rudeness to mixed couples. Being a caucasion woman married to an asian man, I find a cold sort of reaction, more of an exclusion from situations. A few times, there have been obvious expressions of disgust.Most people are ok,especially woman,but men are more hostile and it can be scary to see this. My child has been thought of as Hispanic because of our mix and so I have found this heartbreaking to witness this ignorance as well and the quiet way it insinuates itself into the life of a childs self esteem.It opens ones eyes to many situations that are difficult to explain what you are experiencing, but I know is true because I am white and see it for what it is. When people are open and good and try to go beyond what is unfamiliar,I find this very touching,and go out of my way to help them feel comfortable.I find the elderly and the young to be the most open and accepting of differences in people overall. My advice to people who are in a mixed race relationship and/or have mixed race children is to find a place to live that is open and accepting of differences. Especially for your children. I would say a city or community that has many different types of people and you see many races interacting comfortably. I am from NYC metro and live in Hawaii , where my husband is from. We lived in Oregon for a bit and went to a few other places for vacation that were amazingly ignorant and unsophisticated about this.It was an awful way to feel. Check the population statistics and do your life a favor and get out of those places. Life is wonderful when you are not looked at as different and are around evolved people.

    A mixed couple kissing causes all this commentary and yet a mixed (non-romantic) couple in the squared circle beating the bejabbers out of each other is called the "sweet science". There is something wrong there for sure.

    Notsureguy, Er, God makes many different things, but have you not considered Nature, herself, establishes the ability to engineer variations of these creations for improvement, coexistence or mere survival? You misquote when you say according to Scripture God destroyed because of whatever color based point you were getting at. According to Scripture He destroyed the world as it were because man himself, as a creation unto God, tried to install a greater position than God's due to the knowledge they had acquired. Where did race play in that? You think mixing creates a smarter human? Perhaps, but if you get to close to the sun you get burnt. Still if you are on the equator a darker skinned human is produced. We don't have to turn to God for sun tan lotion if we adapt a more resilient skin due to integration of genetics. Improved genetics doesn't give us the right to usurp the Creator's position. That's all I mean. People get all confused about Bible references. There's a lot more to that book than meets the eye. Even that analogy you chose shows why race is unimportant. Apparently God didn't look at that when he considered who was right and wrong. All were wrong no matter their color. It is what you do with what you have which makes a difference. Example: The American slave trade used race to make a difference that debased millions. Clearly that is wrong. In some parts of Africa, slavery is still going on and in force between people of the same race. Clearly that is wrong. Slavery itself is wrong when it is forced. (Did you know the Bible says it's ok to have slaves? Does that make slavery right? Maybe that's what people at the Tower of Babel were getting at. Are people that work for some corporations a type of slave? But they are willing to participate. Right? Shake your head yes and don't be shy about it. Get the picture?) It was never the culture or color, it was the right and wrong of how it was being used. I wish folks could see that and stop delineating from the facts. Maybe someone can explain it better than I, but I'm sure you can get the picture.

    If god made us two diffrent colors and diffrent races im not sure why we would mix it all up,i think otherwise he would have just made us all one color to get around this confliction,in the past when we mixed races,colors,and language,he destroyed everything did he not? it seems to cause a problem anyhow so there must be somthing wrong with it or it would not turn stomachs.i guess we will all find out someday before the throne of our creator but i guess we will go on love for now. peace to all live the best we can and be happy.

    Neicy, I think your words were right on. Truth be told most of us suffer from "miscegenation", lol! I KNOW I'm guitly, lol, as it runs not only in personal practice, but in my blood. I think what's shameful is the American whom can't think for his/herself and is lead around by a ring through the nose like bleeting sheep. This type of person can't think without the "mob mentality" of mass thought. To me it's a shame the media has to become involved in helping to put the message out there of what many are thinking and doing, but I think, largely afraid to act or reason upon. Sort of like Bellaone's ethnic boyfriend who could reason enough to be with her. Yet couldn't manifest it in the normal action of the qualifying perception he and she were a couple to people of his own ethnic communty; by merely holding the girls hand. To bad he had't come across your words himself. It may have helped him mature to that division - standing on his own, fully. Glad you have the wisdom to help others see a different perspective. I'm older than you I'd bet, but in no less need of encouragement and wisdom. Some ignorance is difficult to fathom like the couple on the cover being made a target for their photo and the mag being basically called a rag for distributing such content. I think instead of beating the horse, I defer to Neicy's words as balanced enough for me: "...its just that I get so irritated by ignorant people sometimes. But I try to live my life and let them live theirs. Dont let people who are miserable and dont know how to be happy, bring you down to their level. Be happy it makes their day worse. LOL."

    I keep hearing that people can't help what they are because of how they were raised... that's just BS. I was raised by very narrow minded, bigoted and very prejudiced people. And when I met my first step dad for the first time, my mom tells me that I screamed 'boogy man' and hid under the bed. I laugh at the idea of me doing that, (I was only 7 yrs. old), because I married a black man and have a wonderful son from that man. I have researched every possible race that I could to find a pure one, and the conclusions keep coming back to two things... there is no pure race and the only way to have one is if that group of people had NEVER had any outside contact with any other race of people. I don't like using the term 'other races' though, because I believe we are all the same race... The HUMAN Race. The ONE and ONLY race. Why do people try so hard to keep black, white, yellow, brown, etc. from being together when we don't worry about keeping black and white dogs apart? Same with cats and other animals... they are kept to their species... we are homosapiens... so what's the big deal? If you find love, go for it... I don't choose to date only black men, it's just the white and latin men that I have encountered are so insecure that they can't deal with the fact that I have a son that is mixed, my step dad is black, my sis is mixed and my mom and me are white, native-american and creole. Don't you think that spices and seasonings make things better? I do... Well, I have said enough... it's just that I get so irritated by ignorant people sometimes. But I try to live my life and let them live theirs. Don't let people who are miserable and don't know how to be happy, bring you down to their level. Be happy... it makes their day worse. LOL. Peace out.

    Hey what happened to my pic? Ichibod, Cleopatra was actually believe to be Greek. It was Alexander the Great that took a Persian wife after concurring the region. Upon his death the empire was dividend. The Greeks killed his wife and child and place a Greek on the throne as pharaoh. Some of the strangest things I remember from history. However, I do agree that it goes back further. Can't claim Adam & Eve as I don't want to get into theological debate but yes sometime back (about the time my parents were born)in the day, I agree. It is also believed that the term Black Irish, are references to descendants of the Moors & Irish, when they invaded Ireland 2 millennium ago (give or take a month). I believe you are right that this was a plant. I said I was not going to get into this some months back and here I am again. Ladies, from Vanilla through Dark Chocolate you are all beautiful and each have something special to offer. It may not be what one man wants but there is a man out there that will cherish you and your uniqueness. Sounded better in my head and I hope you understand my meaning. Men hey we have it to too, so etc... Peace out got to go as I have a craving for a little C/V swirl ice cream (he he).

    Ray, You got to that before I could. Interracial dating and marriage has beging on forever. Mark Anthony and Cleopatra, for instance. Even Shakespear's play Othello was about an interracial couple. I actually believe Adam and Eve had different complexions. How else would we have all of the different shades of skin we have today? Oh, Bella. I hate to see you that angry... or are you the type that's more beautiful when you're angry? Ha! You can't argue with that guy. President 2013? Peace through more firepower? I think that was just a prank post.

    This is interesting. WPS argues about one thing and does another. Interracial is interracial even though some, such as WPS, try to only make it a B/W thing. I cannot claim purity of my blood though I can trace it back to the old country. Now Joan just want to clear this up and not picking a fight but interracial has been around for more than a millennium. It has been throughout the history of human civilization. Bella you should not get so worked up over ignorance. We must educate the uneducated (not mine and can not remember who) and by getting worked up fuel their fire. Never try to have an educated conversation with the uneducated and never attack them about their views, educate them. If you attack they put up a wall and you get no where. The hardest thing to do is to be kind to the unkind but you need to be at the level of educator, not a thug to get your point listened to and accepted. Nough said, I'm out

    Everyday I find myself still so very fascinated by the number of ignorant people in this world. The comment from "White Power Supreme" about this whole interracial couple thing bewilders me in that he seems to think interracial couples stemmed from Madonna's video.."Like a Prayer"...when in fact interracial couples was first conceived by white men who raped black women (slaves) forcing them to have mixed children. So, be angry only at yourself not at everyone else. As for those offended by white power supreme's comments, do not allow the ignorance of others to affect you...while he claims pure white descent, it is highly unlikely that he is, but claims that only to drive his case, but statistics show that we are all interracial to some extent. White supremists tend to tell facts that will favor their cause, but anyone with REAL intellect knows what the REAL truth is. As for David Duke for President, it's Obama who was elected by the MAJORITY...Just remember that once you go black, you'll never go back...Get used to it!

    Ya'll Folks are weak and crazy don't you ever consider that the whole black man white woman thing was started by MTV with madonna and her having that video with the black man back in the 80's .You see they push interacial dating on the new's media as well as gay rights . Listen to the music now its all hip hop and Rap personally it takes no talent to rap . To play music such as a eletric guitar and drums the piano yes takes talent and dedication to learn music .From Alabama where I live there is more interacial dating than I can stomach or have ever seen . Lets face it they want to flaunt it in our faces make us believe we are a weaker race it's for sure not true . Never hang your heads white men let the white women go the black men will just wind up in prison for beating her crazy butt or killing her.Lets all face it white women are insane. I date only Asian Women.......Peace........through more firepower.

    To WannaBme So Sorry!!!! Oh my GOD You just made me cry for you and your children also. Wow what a crazy road you had to travel. I am so sorry for the people who mis treated you and what they did. That is horrfic!!! My brother is half black and my mother is from Kentucky. We had a family reunion and I was afraid for him on what the other part of the family might say mean to him. ( I was ready to come back.) My mothers father was decon of the babtist church in Kentucky in 1960's. I'm sure my mother was terified to have her half black baby in the south in the 60's . For his safety as well. She is truly a brave woman. I have seen all kinds of hate towards all colors and people. It is all ugly and un called for. They must have no lives of their own to have time to pull apart ours. All we can do as people of all color is be the best we can and pray that one day we will all be loved for our hearts not our outside skin. Once aagin " We are all made from the same maker, which makes us family." By K Live,Laugh,Love ....Be true to who you are!! Never change for someone else. Then you would not be YOU!!

    I am a blond haired, blue eyed, white woman who was married to a black man and we had 3 beautiful children. born in 85, 86 and 98. When our first two were young I got fired from one job when they found out my kids were black. I was told that I was a horrible mother because if I truly loved my children I would have killed them before they were born so they would not have to live their lives as mutant children belonging nowhere. The child born in 85 is a female and the one born in 86 is a male. When my son went to high school the word nigger was used on a regular basis by everyone including teachers. One teacher used to throw pens and pencils at him. My daughter was treated as if she was some kind of beauty star. It was amazing to me the difference in the way they were treated. My last child was born on his big brothers 12th birthday and 3 years later big brother was killed in an accident caused by white neighborhood kids driving recklessly. The kid that was responsible for the accident got off scott free with absolutely NO consequences because "accidents happen" and "I should have a good cry and get over it" (direct quotes) Needless to say my husband and I did not survive all the trauma. That was in 2002. When I have tried to date as soon as any race other than black finds out I have black children and a black grandchild they are not interested. If I join a dating site and I put on it that the people MUST be accepting of all races and cultural back grounds I get lots of mail but as soon as I put a picture of my grandson or one of my children on there that is it, the mail stops cold. Why, you ask, do I put the picture on there if the mail stops? Well because I don't want to waste my time. I am completely honest about me, how I look, what I am like, and I don't want to waste time talking to people who "think" they are accepting. I can definitely say from experience that yes racism and hatred are alive and well in 2009. I do not care what race the person I am dating is. I care about whether or not we are connected, have the same values, the same goals, are good for each other.. etc That is what is truly important. I try to remember that as shocking as it is that racism is still so prevalent in America it has only been about 60 years since the civil rights movement and we have made progress. Thirty years ago my husband might have been hung for even thinking about dating me. We went to Alabama for his mothers funeral and we stopped in Georgia to get gas. A police officer came up to us and announced that we must certainly be lost. We explained we were traveling and why and she told us to get back in the car hit the road and under no circumstances were we to stop anywhere for any reason. Thirty or forty years ago and we or he would have been arrested. I would also like to point out that we like to think of racism as the white mans sin but that fact is that every single " cultural race" (after all we are all the human race so it really is cultural race) is to some degree racist. Every cultural race has their haters who promote their agenda of hate. The beauty of it all is that like I said before we are making progress so keep loving who you love. Showing that you love them, in appropriate ways of course, in public. Be HAPPY when people stare because the more it is seen the more it will be accepted and the faster that change will come. Peace and Love

    It is EASY to hate. It takes no effort at all. It is HARD to love because you do need to put effort in but in the end is worth it. And it is the most beautiful thing that was created for us. That is FREE. WE abuse love and have no respect for the words anymore. WE throw them around so much the meaning has faded. WE all play games because someone else started it. Do any of us really know the meaning of LOVE anymore? Do we have the time for all this non sense? Let's get back to our roots. Do un to others. You don't have to like people(any color) but you should respect everyones right to say how they feel and be with who they want. Who are we to judge anyone's choice on a mate. We all need to step back look at our own lives and do that, live our lives that we have control over. Let the haters keep on hating that is all they know. I pray for us all to one day remember we are from the same maker which makes us family. Live the life you have always imagined!! LOve yourself, be nice, have fun.... Respect, K

    Well come to SAVANNAH GEORGIA a very Racist place under the surface where Black men no matter how great their character are not even considered as potential mates. They are treated as non-persons. Yes, hate is a big deal in America. Very little has changed. There is a lot of smoke but if you can see clearly, you will see that Hate is still there and as vibrant as ever. No TV show or Ad campaign can change that. Anyone who thinks differently is a fool.

Coaching Testimonial

"The Coaching Service served as an incredible perk and has really enhanced my online dating experience"

Submitted by: Karen, USA, 34

My Dating Coach really took the time to go through my profile thoroughly. First she viewed my pictures and gave me great feedback.

She read through the written portion of my profile, line by line, and gave direct feedback on how to add my personality to it.

My amazing consultant, even asked how my contacts where going and offered a few suggestions to increase my interactions with new men.

I took her advice and made the suggested adjustments.

I have received more contact from men, more views, and have started communicating with more people which was the whole point of joining the site in the first place.

The Coaching Service served as an incredible perk and has really enhanced my online dating experience. Thanks!
