It's 2017. That doesn't stop bigots from acting like it's the 1950s, when it was still illegal in many places to be an interracial couple. The latest instance of racist abuse was caught on camera by the bigot himself.
A man carrying a camera approached the couple, a black man and a white woman. He can be heard speaking to himself behind the camera, saying: "Look at the f***ery, in a black-owned restaurant."
The man then questions the nature of their relationship. "Excuse me, are ya'll together, like in an intimate relationship?" said the man.
The man being recorded laughs uncomfortably and says "yes," then asks the interviewer "what's up?"
The interviewer goes on and says, “You couldn't find no black woman? Like, you had to go that low, to the lowest rung of humanity. If they even humans, it's arguable that they even humans.”
The man is seen smiling uncomfortably throughout the video while the interviewer continues to mock him.
“What was it that made you that weak — that you'd get on your knees and bow to this less of a female — that's lesser than a black woman in every way,” says the interviewer.
Several times while being harassed, the man attempts to interrupt the man recording and incredibly keeps his cool throughout.
Unfortunately, this is not the first time interracial when couples have been targeted. Recently, an interracial couple's entire house was trashed and racist messages were left on the walls in Cincinnati.
In another incident, a Texas father wrote his daughter a very bigoted, racist letter expressing his feelings regarding her relationship with a black man. The father threatened the daughter to disown her because she was dating a black man.
Not long ago, a white teacher filed a lawsuit against a school in Florida claiming they fired her because she was dating a black man.
Tennis star Serena Williams also came under fire when she announced her engagement with Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanion. She received end a lot of criticism for her fiancé’s race.
