I can imagine in those circumstances, relatives or friends exacting revenge on her behalf.
Mixed-race couples are far more common in UK than USA and neighbourhoods are less obviously divided. Even with people watching different TV programs with more ''appropriate' same-race actors or different sports. Including Asians) but apparently 50% of black men in UK are in relationships with white women and mixed-race babies outnumber those born to black couples in Britain.
One of the things that struck me when I was in England, was the number of interracial couples I saw.
wife knows or knew a white guy who was married to a black female in London and she was murdered by black men for being with a white guy..of honour killing I suppose, I never really understood it myself.'Honour killing'?Indeed by 2020 'mixed race' will be largest minority, larger than 'black' or 'asian' (recognising these terms are ambiguous)The friends I know in that situation in USA (white wife, black husband, New Jersey) commented that it was hard for them to find a neighbourhood they felt comfortable: she felt an outsider in black neighborhoods or vice versa.Bit it was that moment that inspired the 55-year-old artist to begin her portrait series, Sticks and Stones, for which she takes black-and-white pictures of a range of interracial couples and writes the cruel insults they have endured underneath the shots.Donna, who said her interaction with the young woman and her black boyfriend reminded her of a conversation she had years before with another interracial couple, shared: 'What struck me was the resilience of both couples in the face of derision, their refusal to let others define them.'Since then, she has photographed interracial pairs of all ages in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee in an effort to 'capture how they see themselves, the world of love and trust they have created despite adversity.'Donna, who is a professor at the University of Central Arkansas, said she includes hateful insults the couple has been subjected to at the bottom of the images to serve 'as a reminder of how part of society sees them'.
