Love and racism in 2011: 'He's black. I'm white. I'm hurting'

Janna Lynn Imel is in a wonderful relationship, she says, but some of her family members won't speak to her anymore.

"Why?" she wrote in a CNN iReport video. "He's black. I'm white."

"'I made this video in hopes of showing people that their attitudes toward my boyfriend and I are not right," she said. "Racism is not dead, as many people believe. It still exists in our lives everyday and it's time that more people take a stand."

    Black white yellow pink purple, I hope all you low life racists go blind so you can't see the color of people you speak to.
    You all obviously haven't traveled anywhere outside of your insular little towns to see how the rest of the world lives.
    My advice to any interracial couple is to move to Hawaii and see how they wear their mixed race heritage as a badge of honor, poke fun at all the ethnicities but without malice or pure hatred. The mainland racists however probably profess to being "good Christians" too!! – Yeah right – lmfao!! – More like – So full of Heavenly thoughts they're no earthly good!
    Do us all a favor all you halfwitted racists – how your breath and count to one million – REAL SLOW...

    Most interracial relationships that I witness in the south consist of a gangsta looking black dude with a fat, ugly white girl. The girl is desperate and the boy wants to prove a point. I see these couples on Judge Judy's TV show. The case usually involves a white girl suing her ex black boy friend for money the she "loaned" him. But, whatever floats your boat. No matter what others think, it's their business.

    @Frank and Tom. You both appear to be well-versed in your writing(s), but a little "shallow" in your thinking. Tell me guys, which scenario would you want for your daughter...to be with or marry a rich white guy who beats her, disrepects her, calls her out of her name, doesn't let her have a relationship with her family? Or, REGARDLESS OF RACE, be with someone that love her, adores her, respects her, never calls her out of her name or beats her? Frank or Tom, I'm listening...

    I am a white woman and my fiance is black. He has NO criminal background and has never ever got into any kind of trouble at all. So for those saying that parents are concerned because of statistics could not be more wrong. Where are you getting your statistics from? There is no excuse for it at all. I am just shocked at the amount of people that agree with this girls parents. Who cares how they were raised. I was born in SOUTH. TENNESSEE and I am not racist and my family is not racist either. That is an excuse people use to justify why they are hateful people. It is her families loss. They will either get over it or they won't. Either way she is not wrong and should not have to change who she dates or loves just to make them accept her again.

    Why did she enter that relationship in the first place? She should have made the decision to respect her family and then she would have never entertained the idea of dating him. This would have been done long before "falling in love". I see her as being selfish, because she knew how her family would feel about it... so if dating him is soooo worth it, then stop whining about the consequences! You can't have your cake and eat it too.

      Frank,
      That is just what she is talking about. It is not like Caucasians do not have children out of wedlock. All black people are not like that. It makes me sick to see how little and closed minded people can be. If you do not give the person a chance and you judge them as soon as you meet them, you could be losing out a very good friend. I mean all races have something that they do. So for you to make that statement was dumb. You can't help who you love .And if any of these people that are judging others and things of that nature believed in GOD they would know that it is not right. God made us all and no one is better than the other. I just pray for people like that. Because there are bad people in all races.

        Teena, you did not understand what i said then! That makes your statement dumb. I said, looking at the statistics on ethnic groups in the States, no surprise if a white Caucasian father is worried about his daughter dating a black male! I am sure that white Caucasian males have children out of wedlock but not in the same amount that the black male population has, compared to their numbers! Having said that, and worrying about a daughter dating a black male obviously you have to look at the single case. Ii it stereotyping?no...i call it reality! Then..at the end..you love whom ever you want!

      Hey Frank, what about that fact that most white males according to the FBI statistics on crime are rapist, and serial killers...should that not scare you and make you not want your daughter to date a white man? I think dating a race that is "known" for having babies out of wedlock is a lot better than dating a race "known" for being racist, rapist, and serial killers. White males also have the highest levels of depression in our society. So not only are the rapist, serial killers, but they are also buzz killer downers.

        I guess you are not looking at the statistics and you have no idea what are you talking about! Black crime is a fact and i am talking about murder, rape, black on white crime. You have not looked at the official statistics if you say that FBI claims white Caucasian to be rapist! Set aside serial killers, which are extremely limited in numbers and occurrences every single crime stats shows clearly the African Americans have a problem. If you want I will be happy to get you the official websites, FBI and DOJ, to bust your lies. I am just talking about facts, nothing to do with racism in which also Caucasian have not the first place because AA have their "role models" also: from the Black Panther party, through the NAACP to Sharpton Al ! Shut up please...you will look better...

      Here's a statistic: in total numbers, there are far more white criminals and far more white children born out of wedlock. If you look at the total numbers of murders and murderers, you'll find that any one of us are twice as likely to be killed by a white person than a black person. http://www2.fbi.gov/ucr/cius2009/data/table_43.html

        Statistically a white male is more likely to become a serial killer or a rapist or kill themself and their entire family. Should she not date white men then? Oh and think about all the other statistics on their genetics such as: disease, intelligence, brain size, life expectancy in America. If her parents are really going by that logic maybe they should do more than exclude the African American population for their daughter?

        Reply to CCguest: my friend I am not saying that white males do not commit crimes. I am looking at general statistics, official statistics, you don't know what are you talking about obviously! rape, murders, armed robbery. aggravated assaults..is not the white male that tops the charts. You might have to review your official sources. Serial killers? When you walk in the streets are you more afraid of a serial killer targeting you or of a young male mugging you? see the odds......do i have to draw it to you?

      Sorry Dice..is not working, your blame game.So it is somebody else creating the problem and not the African American themselves. Is it most fault that most of them decide to commit crimes? They have the same opportunities, if not MORE because of their minority status (and you know what I mean)! Do you read the stats? Why is it my fault that the majority of AA kids grow up without of one of the parents or drop out of school. It is their problem and theirs only. let's start taking ownership of our own problem first in this Country. I don't deem myself superior but most certainly more responsible that the average African America male. Truth hurts.

    This was a simple but well made video. I was surprised it was all signs and no actual speaking. If some of your family members won't talk to you anymore than your right maybe they didn't love you all that much at first. My friend's friend here in Maryland had to deal with similar issues when he fell in love with a black girl in college. His father was racist who would regularly use racial slurs against blacks and Hispanics however he realized in the end that he loved his son more than he hated black people. I see mixed relationships everywhere now even in very small towns. I don't know about Kentucky but I've traveled many places and even in very rural ares of VA, AR, OK, TX , LA and NC its no longer that unusual. I am of Asian background and all my relationships have been mixed with white and Hispanic girls. I was born in Louisiana and have a lot of Southern pride and am a conservative but some changes haven't been all bad since the 50s. If those people who disapprove of you are conservative they should understand that that kind of hate is not what the Bible teaches us and that they are not being good Christians if they believe these things and in the end they will be judged for it.

    First off, that video was painful to watch; 3:33 was way too long. Maybe the way it was done would have been more tolerable had I not just read the synopsis posted above it.
    To the subject in the video, you live in rural Kentucky, and I think you've probably lived there your whole life as has your family. I would further suspect that you and the rest of your family don't live far from one another and that you know your family. How could you not see this coming? Surely growing up with them you heard certain things, being said in a certain way, how could you not expect such a reaction from them?

    I am white and my husband is east Indian. Ironically, my family loved him immediately (with the exception of my stepmom who loved him once she got past the "he's not gonna beat you with a switch, is he?" stereotype)...it was his family who was against us getting married. But once we were married, they accepted it because they knew they could not change it anymore. And once we had a baby, his parents were on the next plane out here to stay with us for a few months.

    Currently, I absolutely love his family and vice versa. It turns out they were concerned with our different cultures (i.e. they are conservative while white women are loose and have no morals, as seen from our tv shows and movies since that is all they have as a reference in their village) and were worried that we would not be a good fit. We have been together for almost 11 years, married for 8 of them, so we have allayed their fears.

    Maybe your family will be the same way. They have a stereotype that is blocking their view. All you have to do is prove that stereotype wrong and it will crumble.

    As seen from my side of this fence.

    We blacks treat whites like crap so much i wouldn't want my daughter dating one either.

    All you need his the Black kid to see "Hey look whitys, watch this..."
    Then go about slapping her in front of her dad, verbally abusing her, humiliating her, using racist terms like "My White piece of as@" and soon as anyone says a thing bang it's racism.

    Black young men on majority would parade her around like a status symbol, and if she did find one of the black gentlemen that so rarely exist, his friends would take up the uncomfortable slack.

    Maybe if we acted equal... and not just trying to lay guilt trips on people we'd....i don't know, have people wanting to be friends and family who'd wish to talk to us.

    Oh right, they only hate us cause we black...not cause our behavior acting like fake gangsta and thugs.

    Oh boohoo, the poor white girl wants everyone to accept her black husband. Well, get it straight – billions of people don't and never will! How many blacks are in China? 0.0000001% Why_ Because Chinese people consider blacks to be inferior, that's why! Africa has the most resources and yet is constantly at war and with non/stop tragedy including famines, mass diseases, unending wars, all under black leadership. And in America? Black gangs killing whites AND blacks and eveb created the East side west side of America gang culture. HIV and Aids is rampant amongst Africans and Black Americans, and although they are only 13 percent of America, they do 55% of violent crimes – murder, rape, robbery, etc. according to FBI facts. And, you wonder why everyone doesn't approve of your black husband? Get real! And, honestly, you don't look like what I consider to be a white woman anyway!

      Please look upon your own race before making a scape goat of minorities. If you want to go based on crime and other things whites have committed the greatest atrocities known to man and human history (but even I still accept them!).

      Lets count the atrocities of whites to see what superiority pedestal you truly stand on:
      1. Spanish Inquisition of the Jews – Exiled, killed, prosecuted and more only by Jewish heritage
      2. German Holocaust – [Oh yea slaughtering millions of Jews is something non-whites do everyday, huh]
      3. Religious Crusades – Invading the middle east to takeover their homelands for 700 years, in deadly wars

      4. Slavery of African/Afro-American – [What does this event say about whites? Are they ALL born evil to do such a thing. No but hey going by your logic of minorities I can say they are.]

      5. Accepting Racism as a standard – This has hurt families,children and every minority in America. Since whites made this their go-to standard, I can assume they are ALL racist based on their past and present can't I?

      6. Nuclear Bombing the Pacific Islander – A population of 100,000 were displaced (our allies mind you) then their island used to test a nuke. Then surrounding island people killed from radiation. A white military choice.

      7. Top Crime – Whites commit 80% of crime but are in fact not caught. Don't neglect to mention racial targeting, profiling, incrimination, unequal justice that all cause the imbalance of white who do the most crime and Latino/African/Other minority groups that are blames or caught more often or just selectively caught.

      8. THE LIST GOES ON

      So what does this say about white human souls? Are they not worth merit do to their past and present atrocities against other people? Disband your stance of white superiority, if their one to look at, its your own.

      I am black (and a dark skinned black) and my husband is white–is family was wonderful and mine was too–the reason is his mom told his father that if he acted up (he was against the marriage) that she would divorce him after over 50 years! He came around and before I had known him for 3 weeks he and I were best buds and he remained my biggest fan before he died. On my side, I also laid down the law and let them know that if I had to choose it would be him. 18 years later, and 5 kids later–the problem has been with outsiders, mostly extended family and mostly black people. Whites appear to be more accepting though we do have some racist moments –but not nearly as hostile as when the blacks do it–and the remarks and anger come from black men as well as black women who think I am a traitor.

    I am White, my husband is Black. We have been married 20+ years. My father was less than thrilled but we worked through it. My husband and I have never been attacked or been insulted. We live in a nice neighborhood, both have good jobs. We conduct ourselves as decent citizens and expect the same from those around us. If someone has had a problem with our relationship (other than my father initially) they have kept it to themselves. We don't expect people are prejudiced and look for disparity. We are realists and know that racism exists yet I can unequivocally state that I have never encountered racism in my marriage NOR my husband. Our child is mixed race, obviously,and is not only accepted at school (which is VERY diverse) but is one of the most popular. Live like you want to be treated and expect to be respected.

People get with who they want to get with no matter what others think period. I mean really why talk about this subject it's really dated. This video proves my point it's a story that's been heard countless times over the years white girl gets with black guy her family don't like it and disowns her end result she still stays with the black guy and they have bi-racial children. It's pointless to keep talking about this subject because like I said the story always ends the same people date who they want to date no matter what others feel about it.The only people that keep making this an issue are racist people and the fact that most people in the world are bi-racial proves that no one cares about how they feel or what they have to say about the subject because it's usually based on ignorance.

      It's more like the different personalities we see in for example different breeds of dogs – a bassett hound has a different behavior than say a border collie. I think blacks have a harder time with impulse control than whites. They also seem to have very little interest in engineering. For whatever reason, Africa and all other cultures that are predominantly black seem sadly unable to develop on their own. I don't hate blacks, but I'm not going to close my eyes to rationality just because some groups passionately want us to believe race is nothing more than skin color or hair characteristics etc.

        Tom your interpretaton of reality is completely skewed. Blacks have a harder time with impulse control than whites? Where do you get that as fact? And then you say blacks have little interest in engineering, how ignorant and self-righteous tone you give. Study black history and discover the scientists, inventors, engineers, biochemists and technologists you are ignoring. You need more exposure to the black business, inventors and engineers that thrive today.

        "Unable to develop on their own." REALLY? First, Africa was invaded some 500 years ago, their land and resources taken and claimed over time by a foreign people. Enslaved, beaten, battered, slaughtered and killed for another 400 years.

        Their native lands hurt by invasive religion, economics systems changed, political takeover by other parties and the resources, foods and metals of the land stripped from them for the benefit of another race (European/White). Then have millions of your people die while being exported as property to another land for 100+ years then still suffer there for another 200+ years into modern times.

        Did you not think that any of these things would hinder progress? Could you ignore these things and how they affect the development of these nations? How dare you sir be so dismissive. I hope you can learn to not set the bar so low. Please think on a higher level than this type of ignorance.

        The "Evangelical Christian position " is this: Moses married a Shunammite (this tribe was black). His sister criticized the marriage and G-d gave her leprosy as punishment. She had to repent before she could enter the fellowship again. G-d defended this interracial marriage. There are numerous other references to the descendants of Ham, the father of the peoples of Africa, in important relationships and positions. "Christians" that present any other view are not presenting a biblical view and should be viewed as uninformed about their own scriptures. Your mocking tone would indicate a desire to put down "conservatives", but people are all over the map on this issue – every party and every race.

My husband feels for me and is upset when he is with me and we get mistreated–but we both know it is because of my skin color and when he is not with me, he is treated differently and I am not–THAT is the truth. My daugher (biracial) is also sometimes mistreated and he sees it, but she also has a different ratio of mistreatment by whites and blacks with some accepting her due to her white ratio and some accepting her due to the black–it can break down in all ways–but to the person whose color or features are the CAUSE of the anger and racism –the burden and suffering will always be more because there will never be a time when they do not have their color.

    Seriously this is news. I've dated a different race and I didn't make the news. She needs to stop crying about it and copying other videos of things that are more important then her family hating her.

    I applaud you and your boyfriend. It is couples like us that will determine the future of this country. I refuse to listen to anyone who looks at the color of my skin or my boyfriend's skin as a character flaw. Follow the words of Margaret Mead: A small group of thoughtful people can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." Continue to be a change for the future and help to educate the truly ignorant people. Good Luck!

    Wow life is too short to discriminate against someone skin color. Only GOD can judge us. We need to show love and not hate to one another. God Bless you all I will keep you in my prayer!

    I am in an interracial relationship and have been fro the last five years. From the beginning no one opinions has mattered to me and it never will. My family is welcoming and have not said or even acted like they didn't approve. I can't really say the same for her side but either way it goes we are happy and no one will change that. When you ignore the ignorance of others they will eventually stop or stay away baby girl.

    Racism is wrong, yes it still exists but we r not living in the 50s and 60s. The black male/white female relationships are seen a lot in life and tv so its not as taboo anymore. This reminds me of the gay teen's video...only diff is he had some REAL life issues to deal with! He used flashcards and was bullied for years, was depressed and thought about suicide.

      I noted that you did not talk about the black female and white male relationships–those are growing exponentially. When I went to my 2nd childbirth class, I was the only black female with another race husband, when I had my 3rd child, I was one of 3 and now, when I go to the mall, I would say that out of all the couples that are bi racial, at least almost half are white men with black women. I had only seen that in California before–but now it is in the Midwest. I see more biracial babies with white moms–but the man is long gone a lot of the times. When there are couples with kids, I see about half with black males and at least 30% with black females the rest are whites with other races or blacks with latins.

    I can relate to the situation. It is a shame that some people still chose to judge others based on color of their skin. I am have an opposite situtation in that my husband is white, and I am not. We have been married for 9 year now and are fortunate that we live in an area that is extremely diverse racially. Heck, if you aren't in a bi-racial relationship, people look at you strange. Now I do notice many times that when we travel, people look. Sometimes it is hard to ignore the stupidity of others, but you can't let it ruin what you have, or who are, or what you want for yourself or your family. Others will have to get over it or accept it – and really what do you can whether they accept it or not. It is there issue, not yours. I have always been happy with the decisiions that I have made. I wouldn't change a thing. I am polite when people are rude and I smile at their stupidity. BTW, Smiling makes people wonder what you are up too. I love it. Good luck to you.

    This was a great video.
    It's sad to see that COLOR still divides people. This man treats this young lady like a WOMAN should be treated. She's happy and in a healthy relationship. I would never ever disown anyone in my family if they were to date outside of their race.
    I'm Bi-Racial (White Mother|Black Father) and I've seen the hatred due to their daughter loving a black man or having a child with a black man. Especially in the south. I was raised by 2 parents that taught me to look past others ignorance. We can't live our lives worrying about what others are unable to handle.

    I wish this young lady continued happiness. I hope that her family wakes up and realizes that we are in 2011 and not 1911 and that it's not worth making their loved one an outcast because she is dating outside of her race.
    If this happened to me, I'd be so done with my family. TO Heck with them. KEEP YOUR HEAD UP!
    People focus too much on color and should worry about the stuff that is wrong in their own lives.

    I know how it feels honey, I was in the same situation. It took my family a few months to come around. My closest family members accepted him, the others never did. My choice changed my family dynamics permanently. Its brought out the best in some people, and the worst in others. It made people face their own inner demons (myself included). It also made me realize the true meaning of unconditional love. Just remember, there is only ONE Judge. The only one that matters. He sees the truth and the good in all people. I now have a beautiful 2 year old daughter who has changed my life. She has brought our worlds together, and because of her I finally feel peace and joy. And no regrets. Good luck to you both. Set your own path in life and live according to your moral code. Live by example and people will start to notice!

    Stand your ground, I chose a black man over my family and I've NEVER regretted it. I wasn't invited to holidays anymore, etc, but I stood my ground and now they ALL love him. I can't say the same about all of my friends, but as u said, if they have love for u, then they can't help but be happy for u!!! 🙂 God bless y'all!
